Russia

In lockdown

While cases of coronavirus were initially low in Russia compared to the rest of Europe, they have been steadily increasing week by week – with Moscow at the centre of the pandemic. On April 13th, President Putin delivered his third live corona virus briefing. It was announced that regions outside of Moscow are 3-4 weeks behind the capital in the spread of the epidemic. In line with this the government has been steadily increasing controls over movement across the country, especially in Moscow where e-passes have been introduced to limit the travel of non-essential workers. While many in Russia remain patriotic and confident in the collective response to the pandemic, there is growing distrust of the state especially in regard to an increase in surveillance as a result of the crisis.
