Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the fight against Covid requires the concerted efforts of the international community, and it is too early to talk about a victory over the virus, but it is necessary to draw lessons from the epidemic.
In a speech by the Russian President to the participants in the international forum “Primakov’s Readings”, read by his assistant Yuri Ushakov, he said: “It is clear that the number of challenges is constantly increasing. Many of them pose a real threat to international stability and security, the life and well-being of people in different parts of the world. Challenges such as the deterioration of arms control mechanisms, the activity of terrorist groups, the intensification of cybercrime, the escalation of regional conflicts, and the escalation of the coronavirus epidemic.
In his speech, Putin noted that the serious social and economic consequences of the epidemic are being felt everywhere.
The Russian President stressed that “the fight against such a dangerous infection requires the concerted efforts of the entire international community and sincere and equal cooperation. However, unfortunately, not everyone was ready for this. Although it is premature to talk about victory over the Corona virus, it is now important to think In the lessons to be drawn from this ordeal, and how to act in the future if such a situation arises. I hope that the participants in Primakov’s readings will pay close attention to these and other urgent regional and global issues on the agenda.”
