Swiss media explained why Putin never wears a medical mask


Russian President Vladimir Putin never wears a medical mask, but this has nothing to do with his carelessness, writes the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung.


Fearing COVID-19 infection, the Russian leader has been providing himself with serious protection for several months now, avoiding personal contact. At the same time, being in public, he had never put on a mask during the epidemic and did not hesitate to shake hands.

Putin is one of the heads of state working hard to avoid contracting the new coronavirus. Since March 2020, he has been (lives and works) almost constantly at his residence in the Moscow region. Communication with officials, heads of large state-owned companies, governors and other persons mainly takes place in the format of videoconferences.

Visitors are practically not allowed to the president, and he himself has become much less likely to leave the residence. Trips of the head of state to the regions have become rare. But if Putin holds a personal meeting or awards someone with an order, the highest security measures are applied. Moreover, a negative test for coronavirus is only a minimum requirement.

Those who regularly communicate with Putin live separately from their families. The premises where the Russian leader is located can only be accessed through a special disinfecting tunnel. A person who has received the opportunity to personally communicate with the head of state must live in isolation from the outside world for two weeks. For this purpose, the Presidential Administration has several sanatoriums.

Putin recently told the Russians that he understands their weariness with masks, distance, isolation and all kinds of restrictions. In his opinion, humanity is faced with a very dangerous enemy, so you need to take precautions. But so far the president has not been able to instill his own discretion in his compatriots, the newspaper concluded.

        Justify. I can easily prove that Putin is a coward. But you do not prove the opposite in relation to me.

          Hmm, and we don't need to prove anything - you are a "girl with reduced social responsibility." And now try to wash it off. After all, "everyone around you knows that you are THIS"! "Everyone on the net is writing about it"! And it's up to us that you write about yourself to justify yourself, the main thing is that we know about it. About you even Lenin's definition is about "political ...".

                  The coward is you. It's always easy to insult in absentia. Come up to him and tell him to his face. And sitting in front of the monitor, you are the hero! Where are we before you! Take off the Castrol, steed!

                    You have "Castrulia" instead of your head, and is written through y. And this is not an insult, but a statement of fact. Putin is the only state leader sitting in a bunker and shivering with fear of K19. All the rest are with their people. Putin is a coward and you cannot dispute this fact.

                      GDP, unlike you, has been running the state for more than one year. And if you are so smart and heroic all of yourself, then why are you still not the president?

          Putin is smart and careful. And you are a typical coward. If only because you carry all this crap under different nicknames and chases.
          Enough of this justification ???
          Write in your profile your name and surname, the city where you live and continue to boldly abuse the President of the Russian Federation. Che, weak ???
          And then every brave yapping from under the threshold ... until they saw and pulled out a white one by the collar.

                What do you dislike? Putin, hasn't he been sitting in a bunker since April? As similar to the Berlin prisoner, he also did not get out of the Berlin bunker since April 45.
                Crimea, Donbas, downed Boeing, now Navalny with his "Novichok", just to The Hague and pull, in aggregate.
                Putinism has outlived its usefulness and is simply dangerous for the country, the upper ones also understand this, but the old man maniacally holds on to power with his teeth and is not going to leave. And if the country flies into tar-tarars, then they, the top ones, will not be saved, alas, they will no longer be allowed to London. It seems to me that there will be a revolution from the top.

      Masks only in the store and when visiting institutions. Our chief ordered all visitors to disinfect their hands with a disinfecting solution (we ourselves monitor this at the entrance). In addition, after a working day, we put a quartz lamp (up to each office for 30-60 minutes (depending on the area of ​​the office)) ... One worker, when visiting subscribers, picked up an infection (just two of them in one day in one of the villages) ... the driver has nothing yet (but also in quarantine).

          No, not communication - gas. It's easier for me - I'm a dispatcher ... One of the locksmiths - at the request of the village went and picked up ... And at the expense of the pan .... the age is already up to fifty dollars - who needs something? Everyone needs young and nimble. And experienced people need to pay more (we have a wild turnover - a team of 50 people (together with office), ... up to 5 people leave or come a year) ...

            well, thanks for your frankness. By the way, we have not yet thought of quartz (UV) lamps - more precisely, they have thought of it, but funding is tight - the work allows 1/2 employees to be transferred to a remote location (those who do not have antibodies based on end-to-end testing), and the second half with the presence of antibodies before the presence of UV lamps lilac :)
