The main political event of the week was the meeting of the Presidents of Russia and the United States in Geneva, which took place on June 16. It is not worth waiting for the results quickly – Joe Biden said that the outcome of the meeting with Vladimir Putin will be clear in six months or a year. Moscow this week became hostage to the plague of coronavirus – the capital’s authorities returned to harsh measures, first banning them from sitting on city benches and then forcing all employees of social institutions and food establishments to be vaccinated. In Tatarstan, there is no talk of a lockdown yet, but Rospotrebnadzor warns that there is a risk of an increase in the impact. This week, the court resumed hearing on the case of former banker Musin, a center for the treatment of children with oncology and hematological diseases opened in Kazan and KFU climatologists have issued their version for next summer – you certainly will not be cold.

In Moscow and elsewhere, Covid is growing again, so far in Tatarstan it is calm

The June weekend in Moscow was extended for a week and new restrictions were introduced – the Indian Covid executive is raging there. Preventive measures are being tightened in other areas, including Bashkortostan.

The chief health doctor of Moscow signed a decree on the mandatory vaccination of catering workers, social workers, doctors, teachers, taxi drivers and representatives of other professions that come into contact with the population. On Friday, the capital’s mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, extended additional restrictive measures against the coronavirus until June 29.

The Tatarstan authorities have decided not to introduce new restrictions yet. According to the head of the presidential press service, Lilia Galimova, the decision of each region on this issue is influenced by the epidemiological situation. In Tatarstan, “we assume that the rate of vaccination directly affects the stability of the situation,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Health of the Republic of Tatarstan Marat Sadykov complained about the low vaccination rates of the population in the republic and Russia as a whole: “Israel has been vaccinated by more than 90%. 800 million Chinese have been vaccinated. In the US, many are vaccinated. In Russia, vaccination is very difficult, in Tatarstan – 428 thousand people in total! In addition, we have three types of vaccines. ” Meanwhile, the severity of the disease is increasing due to mutations in the virus. The new executives make seriously ill not only the representatives of the older generation, but also the young ones. Compared to 2020, the doses of drugs for treatment must be doubled – a mutated virus is not so easy to overcome.

On Friday, Tatarstan’s chief health doctor, Marina Patiasina, said that the issue of compulsory vaccination in the republic had been discussed, but there were no reasons for its introduction yet. At the same time, 44 coronavirus strains have already been registered in Tatarstan, Patyashina said. So far, we do not have the conditions to impose strict restrictions, as in Moscow, but the risk of worsening the epidemiological situation remains.

Immigrant record line

More than 100 migrants gathered after the weekend near the building of the Republican Department of the Interior’s Immigration Department in Kazan. A video of the shooting near the passport and visa service at 77 Gavrilov Street hit social media.

Most people came to renew the registration, which ended on June 15. The situation was checked by police, passing several guests at the reception. Some filled out applications right on the street. Before such full queues in the control building did not arise.

On the same day, Russian President Vladimir Putin extended the period of temporary stay in Russia of foreign citizens who have no reason to stay until September 30.
