From the Russia state outlet TASS:

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday he has got revaccinated against the novel coronavirus infection with the Sputnik Light vaccine. “Today, I received another dose of vaccine – Sputnik Light, at your recommendation, at the recommendation of your colleagues. It is called revaccination,” he said.

On Sunday, the president met with deputy director of the Gamaleya National Research Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology, Denis Logunov.

The president also said he feels well after the revaccination. “I was revaccinated two hours ago. I feel nothing. I am in normal condition. Everything is all right,” he said. The president received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine on March 23 and the second dose – on April 14. Later, he said he had been inoculated with the Sputnik V vaccine.

The Hill reports:

Last month, as pandemic conditions were worsening, Putin spoke out against vaccine hesitancy while speaking with government officials on television.

“I can’t understand what’s going on,” Putin said. “We have a reliable and efficient vaccine. The vaccine really reduces the risks of illness, grave complications and death.”

“There are only two ways to get over this period — to get sick or to receive a vaccine,” the Russian leader added. “It’s better to get the vaccine. Why wait for the illness and its grave consequences?”
