Vladimir Putin: Mikhail Vladimirovich, good evening! M. Mishustin: Good evening! Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! It just became known that the tests that I passed for coronavirus gave a positive result. In this regard, in accordance with the requirements of the Rospotrebnadzor, I must observe self-isolation, follow the doctors’ orders. This must be done to protect my colleagues. The government will continue to work normally. I plan to be in active contact with colleagues by telephone and video, with you, Vladimir Vladimirovich, on all basic issues. And as the interim, I propose the candidacy of Andrei Removich Belousov. Vladimir Putin: Dear Mikhail Vladimirovich, what is happening to you now can happen to everyone. I always talk about this. You are a very active person, I want to thank you for the work that has been done so far. You and the members of the Government, colleagues from the Presidential Administration, are certainly in a zone of particular risk, because no matter how you limit yourself in contacts, you can’t do without direct communication with people when making decisions. And here, of course, there is nothing surprising. But I want to tell you, I hope that you will remain in the same good working form and will take an active part in the development of the decisions that we spoke about including at the meeting today, on support citizens, to support the economy as a whole and its individual sectors, especially those who have recently suffered in connection with this coronavirus – you will not only take part in the development of these decisions. And I want to tell you, without your opinion, without your participation, these final decisions will not be taken. I want to wish you recovery as soon as possible. M. Mishustin: Thank you, Vladimir Vladimirovich! Under the circumstances, I want to once again appeal to all citizens of our country to take the coronavirus infection and its spread as seriously as possible. May holidays are ahead, and I ask you all to stay home and observe all necessary restrictions. I am sure that together we will be able to defeat this infection and return to normal life. The government is taking and will take all the necessary steps for this. I ask you to remember that today the date when the country can return to a full life depends on discipline, on the will of each of us. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Vladimir Putin: Mikhail Vladimirovich Your proposal regarding the candidacy of Andrey Remous Belousov for the position of Acting Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation is accepted. Today I will sign the corresponding Decree. Correct as soon as possible. M. Mishustin: Thank you for your support and kind words. Vladimir Putin: When you arrive at the hospital, call me be sure. Waiting for your call. Before communication. M. Mishustin: Good. All the best. Vladimir Putin: All the best.
