Putin called long weekend in May justified
Russian President Vladimir Putin called the continuous holiday weekend in Russia justified. The number of cases of coronavirus has decreased in the country.
He stated this during a video conference with Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova after her report on the current epidemiological situation on COVID-19.
“The decision turned out to be justified, and we continue to reduce the incidence,” the president said.
At the same time, Vladimir Putin urged the regions "not to relax" and to increase the rate of vaccination. Golikova called the coronavirus situation stable, while focusing on Moscow and St. Petersburg, where the largest increase in coronavirus cases is recorded.
On April 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the rest of Russians for the May holidays will be continuous... Non-working days were announced from 1 to 11 May. The head of Rospotrebnadzor then said that such a decision "will make the epidemiological forecast more stable."
