Russian President, Vladimir Putin showed up for the first time in weeks of coronavirus lockdown to celebrate the country’s National Day. Strangely, the President used the Russia Day occasion to advance a disputable change of the constitution which could keep him in office until 2036. Mr. Putin has been in the rudder of affairs for Russia for as long as 20 years as the Prime Minister.
The country lifted its lockdown checks this week notwithstanding a colossal number of infections. However, lifting the lockdown was an issue for the civic chairman of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, as he asked residents to still remain at home during the occasion.
Meanwhile, Russia is relied upon to stamp another holiday on 24 June, in festivity of the country’s triumph in World War II. Putin’s last public appearance was on 9 May, 2020 when he went to a Victory Day service.
Around 510,000 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Russia, the third-most elevated number of cases in the world after the US and Brazil. Russia has recorded 6,705 passings in the midst of allegations of under-detailing by the authorities.
