Russian President Vladimir Putin’s remote work regime will continue for at least another week. This was announced on Sunday, April 5, by his press Secretary Dmitry Peskov on the air of the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” on the TV channel “Russia 1”.
Peskov noted that the case of the chief physician of the hospital in Kommunarka Denis Protsenko demonstrated that it is best to reduce physical communication, which the President did.
A few days ago, Putin held a government meeting in a video format. After that, the President said that he was satisfied with the way the meeting went, and said that remote work is “an example of responsible and law — abiding behavior.”
Last week, the Russian government ordered the Federal government to transfer the maximum number of employees on the remote operating mode.
As another example of switching to remote mode of operation, the Ministry of justice has been instructed to organize remote registration of marriages and other events in the civil registry office.
The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes COVID-19 disease, began in late December last year in Wuhan, China.
