Eighty-one percent of those polled said the Polish government should not buy a vaccine from Russia, according to a study by the Pollster Research Institute commissioned by the Super Express tabloid.

Meanwhile, 74 percent of respondents opposed the idea of the government buying a Chinese vaccine, Super Express reported.

The survey was conducted on March 3 and 4 on a sample of 1,033 adult Poles.

Polish President Andrzej Duda has talked to China’s leader Xi Jinping about a possible purchase of a Chinese COVID-19 vaccine, a top aide said last Monday.

Europe's medicines regulator said last week it had started a rolling review of Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine, paving the way for the potential approval of the shot across the 27-nation bloc, the Reuters news agency reported.
