The capital, Moscow, appears one more day as the city with the most cases with 3,430. For its part, St. Petersburg has notified 1,879 cases.

Russia is the fifth country in the world after the United States, India, Brazil and the United Kingdom for the number of documented infections.

The Kremlin spokesman, Dimitri peskov, acknowledged last week that the Presidency was wrong in calculating that the pandemic would last between six months and a year, after the decision to extend until 2024 the preventive measures against the coronavirus.

The Russian authorities attribute the sharp increase in new infections and deaths to the aggressiveness of the delta variant, the lack of strict compliance with sanitary rules by many Russians and, above all, the low vaccination rate in the country.
