In this catastrophic COVID-19 outbreak, every country and nation is currently facing many challenges. Russia seems to have been hit the hardest politically.
While Russia is trying to keep up to date on research on the deadly virus and keep individuals from contracting, their government is contested to be almost as much of a catastrophe now as the pandemic itself.
People like Anastasia Tatulova are struggling to survive and have even gone to see President Putin to beg for help. However, Tatulova stated that there were no responses to her plea--that the government has not done anything to help the situation.
Many have reported that this whole situation has been a great challenge for President Putin, so much so that when he tried to alter the Constitution in his favor, he was forced to stop the vote because of the Coronavirus.
