Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to work, although the number of face-to-face contact was reduced to prevent the risk of infection with coronavirus.
“the President is not isolated, he is actively working, you see, there are meetings, there is correspondence, there is a videoconference”, — said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov in interview to the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin”, shown on TV channel “Russia 24”.
a Kremlin spokesman also reminded that the head of state is constantly on the phone with the heads of regions and ministries.
“But that reduced the number of events with face — to-face contacts, Yes, it’s true. This in no way affects his work schedule,” — said Peskov, adding that under existing conditions, these measures are fully justified.
According to the press Secretary of the President, in the medium term, all people will still have to comply with the precautions due to the coronavirus. As an example, he cited a new habit — not to greet people by the hand.
Speaking about the end of the imposed restrictions, Peskov noted that “each of us will just be happy to feel that these modes are no more”, but still need to be patient and wait.
