Vladimir Putin's visit to the hospital in Kommunarka and his appeal to the nation showed that his main priority is the health of citizens. But in the face of a common threat, it is necessary for everyone to unite, and therefore the president called on the Russians for solidarity. This was told to the newspaper VZGLYAD by political analyst Sergei Starovoitov, commenting on Putin’s message to Russian citizens.
“The main task of the president’s speech was to alert the public about emergency measures to counteract the virus. In addition, it is very symbolic that this appeal was preceded by a visit by Vladimir Putin to a hospital in Kommunarka, ”said Sergey Starovoitov, general director of the Club of Regions federal expert network. “This means that he essentially led all the actions in the epidemiological sphere.” It is also an important signal for the entire power vertical. This is a sign that the entire administrative structure should be mobilized. ”
Recall that on Tuesday the president visited a hospital in Moscow Kommunark, where patients with suspected coronavirus are located. The Russian leader thanked the head physician of the hospital, Denis Protsenko, for organizing the work. The next day, Putin issued an appeal in which he listed a number of measures to protect citizens in the face of the threat of the spread of Covid – 19. In particular, the president said that the next week in the country will be inactive.
Recall that the latest data on the situation with Covid is in Russia and the world are represented on the portal stopkoronavirus.rf.
During his address to the Russians, the head of the country showed concern for every person, Starovoitov emphasized. “The president does not care about the dry statistics in general, but it is important to save as many lives as possible. He directly says: our task is to save people, to save everyone, ”the political scientist said.
The speech also called for solidarity, Starovoitov added. “A big disaster has come into the world now, and people must put aside their petty, private disagreements. Regardless of political views, economic preferences, features of our world order, we must unite in the fight against common evil, ”the source said.
“This appeal also has a foreign policy dimension – how Russian actions in the external environment will be interpreted. When the president speaks, when our state takes concrete actions in the epidemiological sphere, Russia thereby demonstrates to the whole world the level of its mobilization readiness. The extent to which the country is ready for various kinds of crises is, of course, closely monitored abroad, ”the political scientist concluded.
