L’emergenza Coronavirus in Russia. Poteri, fonti, responsabilità
The Coronavirus emergency in Russia, Powers, sources, responsibility
Initially underestimated, the Coronavirus epidemic in Russia reached significant proportions in just a few weeks, putting the country in forth place worldwide for the number of those infected. The reactions of the authorities have indicated increasing levels of alarm, but without reaching the threshold of a general lockdown. The main responsibility for the safety of the population was delegated to the ‘governors’ of the federated subjects (with the lion’s share falling on the Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin). However, the difficult work of containing the economic fallout was left in the hands of the federal Government, under the menacing eye of President Putin.
