Russia: How messily Putin is reacting to the corona pandemic

All too often, Vladimir Putin leaves corona decisions to regional authorities, critics say. “Putin doesn’t know exactly how to deal with it,” said Konstantin Gaaze, political expert from Carnegie Moscow Center, the US magazine “Politico”. “He agrees to share power because he himself doesn’t know what’s right and wrong under the current circumstances.”

Then on April 14, Putin announced himself. “We have a lot of problems,” he admitted, according to the Guardian. “We have nothing to brag about, and we definitely can’t let up.”
