MOSCOW Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin is pro­tected from the coro­n­avirus by spe­cial dis­in­fec­tion tun­nels that any­one vis­it­ing his res­i­dence out­side Moscow or meet­ing him in the Krem­lin must pass through, his spokesman said on Wed­nes­day.

One such spe­cial tun­nel, man­u­fac­tured by a Rus­sian com­pany based in the town of Penza, has been in­stalled at Putin’s of­fi­cial Novo-ogary­ovo res­i­dence out­side Moscow and two more in the Krem­lin, said Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman.

Demon­stra­tion footage of the tun­nel, pub­lished by the state-con­trolled RIA news agency on Tues­day night, showed masked peo­ple pass­ing through it be­ing sprayed with dis­in­fec­tant from the ceil­ing and from the side.
