Vladimir Putin told a news conference that Russia's economy had recovered from the pandemic crisis in a short period of time and was recovering faster than other countries, the national portal Adyrna reported, citing TASS.
"The results of these measures are not bad," Putin said.
According to him, during the pandemic, small businesses were severely affected. A number of timely measures have benefited large industries and enterprises. They worked almost continuously, and in some cases even grew, for example, in the defense industry.
