Putin Is Not on «Social-distancing» Anymore
«The president is not on isolation, he is actively working, there are also face-to-face meetings, there are also absentee meetings, there are videoconferences. Probably, you can hardly imagine how much the president is on the phone with heads of regions, with heads of ministries, with heads of large infrastructure companies. But the fact that the number of events with face-to-face contacts has decreased — yes, it is indeed so. This is due to the need to simply protect the president from any risk of, say, getting infected», explained the Kremlin representative.
Dmitry Peskov also said that the Russian leader's working day is not limited to 8 or 12 hours. «It's much longer, and it's every day without breaks, because the country lives, problems happen, it requires the president's intervention».
On March 22, a press secretary noted that the possibility of the president's transition to a remote work due to the coronavirus is not yet considered, but everything necessary is being done to protect him. He specified that the virus test had been done by all employees, preparing the events with Putin's participation.
