Russia: Putin's spokesman hospitalized with coronavirus

Source: AP

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says he is hospitalized with the coronavirus.

Peskov, a key aide of Russian President Vladimir Putin, told the Interfax news agency on Tuesday, ďYes, Iíve gotten sick. Iím being treated.Ē Peskov, 52, has been Putinís spokesman since 2008, but started working him with in the early 2000s.

Russians who have the virus but light or no symptoms of illness are allowed to stay home, and it wasnít immediately clear if Peskovís hospitalization reflects the gravity of his condition or was an extra precaution.

Reporters from the Kremlin pool said on Twitter that Peskov was last seen in public on April 30 ďat a meeting with Vladimir Putin.Ē It was not clear whether it means the two were in the same room, as Putin has been conducting all his meetings via teleconference in recent weeks.

2. "Russia: Putin's spokesman hospitalized with coronavirus"

I didn't hear about this.

You would've thought Trump going into the hospital would've been big news.

6. They must be talking about Putin's other spokesman

As far as I know Trump is not in the hospital, so it must be one of Putin's spokesmen in Russia.

9. This could be totally made up to make Putin look invincible.

If Putin does not get sick I will not believe his spokesman was sick. I trust nothing that comes out of Russia.
