At a meeting with the Deputy Director of the Gamaleya Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, Denis Logunov, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he had received the Sputnik Light booster vaccine. As with the president’s primary vaccination, his revaccination took place without cameras. Putin also noted that two hours after the injection, he was doing well.
For the first time, it became known about Putin’s vaccination on March 23, but he refused to say which drug he was inoculated with. The president got the second component on April 14th. Later, Vladimir Putin admitted that he had been vaccinated with Sputnik V. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov then noted that Putin is already doing a lot to popularize vaccination and does not want to inject on cameras.
Earlier, Meduza, citing sources reported that the presidential administration began restarting the vaccination campaign. According to the interlocutor of the edition, one of the reasons for the failure of the campaign is the drop in confidence in the president. “So far, the main result of the polls is the distrust of Russian citizens in the authorities, the drop in the rating of the first person. Covid turned out to be the best poll here. There is an alienation of Vladimir Putin from the population, they no longer listen to him, it is the trust rating that is falling. They don’t listen to TV either, ”the source says.
