SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Russia's president says he'll give United Nations staffers the country's new coronavirus vaccine free of charge.

President Vladimir Putin made the offer during a speech to this year's General Assembly.

The Russian vaccine has raised eyebrows in the scientific community. It showed promise in small, early trials. But it hasn't undergone final-stage testing, which determines the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.

It's unclear if any U.N. employees will take Putin up on his offer.
