(CNN) Russia’s coronavirus vaccine will be gradually rolled out to high-risk people before a mass vaccination of Russians begins in October, the head of the group funding the research said on Wednesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the approval of a coronavirus vaccine for use on Tuesday, claiming it as a “world first,” amid continued concern and unanswered questions over its safety and effectiveness.

Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Tuesday, Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) head Kirill Dmietriev said “safety is at the core of the vaccine.”

“We know the technology works and we will publish the data in August and September to demonstrate that,” Dmietriev said.

Developed by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute, the vaccine has yet to go through crucial Phase 3 trials in which it would be administered to thousands of people.

Russia hasn’t released any scientific data on its testing and CNN is unable to verify the vaccine’s claimed safety or effectiveness.

  1. Russia announced on Aug. 1 that it will start mass inoculations in October with a vaccine that hasn’t yet finished clinical trials. In the U.S. there are concerns, including those raised by members of Congress at a July hearing with pharmaceutical executives, that President Trump could pressure the Food and Drug Administration to cut corners as the November election nears.
