Russia’s Vladimir Putin talks COVID-19, big tech during address to World Economic Forum

Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a virtual address to the World Economic Forum on Wednesday, that the world’s focus should be on mass COVID-19 vaccinations of not just wealthy countries, but impoverished countries as well.

Putin said the novel coronavirus pandemic “will drag on,” adding that inequalities in vaccine distribution will be a “global menace.”

The Russian president also addressed the growing importance of big tech companies like Twitter and Facebook, saying that such companies now compete with governments in their influence.

Putin questioned whether such tech “monopolies” are in the best interests of society, accusing them of trying “to step in for legitimate democratic institutions… to appropriate or restrict the natural human right to decide how to live, what to choose, which position to express freely.”
