Press Secretary of the President of Russia, Dmitry Peskov.
On Monday, September 18, a journalist from Komsomolskaya Pravda invited the official representative of the Kremlin to discuss medical issues…
… – Dmitry Sergeevich, in the “White House” (that is, in the Russian government building on Krasnopresnenskaya embankment) a mask regime is being introduced. How about this in the Kremlin, in the presidential administration, are they going to introduce it too?
“No,” Peskov said, “until the Kremlin introduces a mask regime, we will not have such measures.”
We see that, of course, there is a certain seasonality (we are talking about morbidity – AG) and a seasonal increase in morbidity is possible.
We are waiting for guidance from specialists, doctors and epidemiologists.
We don’t have one yet. (Decisions on the introduction of a mask regime. – AG)
– What about flu vaccines? – I continued. – Now everyone in the country is being vaccinated, and there is a very good vaccine, the quadrivalent one. How are you doing with this?
“Well, we don’t have any general campaign,” the press secretary explained, “it’s not planned in any way.”
In this case, each employee has the opportunity to receive such vaccinations.
– That is, your vaccination campaign is not carried out centrally, as before?
– No. But we have never had it centralized.
– Have the president and press secretary been vaccinated?
“President, I can’t tell you,” said an official Kremlin representative. – Press secretary – not yet.
“It’s time,” I advised him.
“It’s about time,” the press secretary responded, “I agree with you.”
