Russian President Dmitry Peskov's press secretary said that the head of state took the coronavirus situation long ago. According to him, the main thing has been done in Russia – citizens have the opportunity to protect themselves by vaccination.
A Kremlin spokesman also noted that the level of vaccination in the country is “disproportionately low”. For this reason, there is a high mortality rate in Russia.

Due to the unexpectedness of the incident According to Kirill Martynov, the editorial board has not yet managed to prepare any official congratulations to the editor-in-chief, although her internal chat is simply full of joy and ideas. & # 39; & # 39; & nbsp; & nbsp;
For official greetings, & nbsp; by two o'clock in the afternoon, the editors already knew about the statement of the president's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, who congratulated the editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta that the award was deserved. Although Mr. Peskov spoke vaguely about the possibility of congratulations in the first person, he used the pronoun “ we“ in his congratulations, making it clear that it was not just his personal opinion .. & nbsp;
As such a high award will be celebrated, the editorial board has not yet decided.
But the Nobel Prize winner is a lifetime title and the foreign agent is temporary.
My joy for Muratov, who received the Nobel Prize, is very personal for me, I will not hide … I worked with him in Novaya Gazeta for almost five years. I worked in Moskovskiye Novosti for Yegor Yakovlev, I worked in Ogonyok for Korotich, I work in MK for Gusev. And in “Novaya” I did not work for Muratov, but with Muratov. From 1996 to 2000.
Happy time for journalism. And there was no smell of the laws that now surrounded us with red (dangerous) flags. Just like in a big song by Vysocký.
Happy time of external freedom! Traps such as Roskomnadzor's instructions, criminal sanctions for “distorting history”, etc. – we could not even imagine.
Inner freedom corresponded to outer freedom. Fortunately for us, Murat's friend was not with the authorities, nor with the bandits, nor with Žirinovsky, nor with Zyuganov, nor with the privatizers. One could write freely and without looking back about Chubais's deceptions, Berezovsky, Korzakov, Nemcov, Lebed, Gaidar; on General Representatives; about what is happening in Chechnya, in the army, in the navy, in the police. It was possible to write freely and without looking back at the president, who regularly justified harsh criticism.
The times of this freedom are over, but Novaya Gazeta has managed to keep it to herself. greater range than many others.
You have to pay for freedom. Novaya Gazeta paid very expensive. Shchekochikhin, Domnikov, Politkovskaya were killed. And there are real concerns that this list is not closed.
But Muratov is very stubborn, he has to deal with it. The stronger the enemies – the greater the honor of victory.
