Putin won’t come to New York for UNGA session as COVID-19 situation remains unstable
Russian President Vladimir Putin will not come to New York for the UN General Assembly session, as the epidemiological situation in the USA remains unstable, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov, TASS reports.
"For obvious reasons, the president won’t come [to the UN General Assembly], like many other leaders. From the viewpoint of ensuring security, including epidemiological security, the security of the president, the head of state, the situation remains unstable, especially in such places as New York. So of course, a trip there is not advisable right now," Peskov said.
