Coronavirus: Is Putin’s relaxing of restrictions for political gain?

Lockdown restrictions in Moscow are beginning to be lifted despite Russia having one of the highest Covid-19 infection rates in the world.

For the last two months, residents have only been allowed out to go to the nearest food shop. Now, they can go for a walk three times a week and non-food shops will start reopening.

But some suggest President Putin’s recent declaration that the epidemic’s peak has passed is just politics.
