“In almost all countries of the world, the consequences of the pandemic have caused a sharp drop in living standards, an increase in inflation, and a slipping of the health care system. In our country, we managed to avoid super-grave consequences, although there are a lot of difficulties, what can I say here, “says Mr. Medvedev (quoted by RIA Novosti).

At the same time, Mr. Medvedev noted that the spread of the coronavirus is “the hardest problem, but not the only one.” According to him, now the world is witnessing “a sharp increase at once the most diverse challenges that pose an increasing threat to humanity.”
