Russian President Vladimir Putin informed that nearly all heads of Russian regions are planning to lift the restrictions introduced to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in a gradual manner, as the situation is improving, APA reports quoting TASS.

"They [the governors] will decide whether to lift these restrictions. This is not due to the fact that the air travel industry is going through a difficult time, this is due to the improving situation," he said during a meeting with Aeroflot head Vitaly Savelyev.

Putin said that the governors are interested in filling the hotels in their regions as well. "Nearly all heads and governors are reporting that they are planning to lift restrictions gradually, stage by stage," the Russian leader said in response to Savelyev’s claim that people who bought tickets for domestic flights are forced to cancel their trips due to quarantine restrictions at their destinations.
