Putin to end COVID-19 self-isolation period with Erdogan talks, Kremlin reports

When Russian President Vladimir Putin visits Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan later on Wednesday, he will stop his coronavirus-related self-isolation, according to the Kremlin.

Putin claimed earlier this month that after scores of people in his entourage became ill with COVID-19, he would have to spend “a few days” in self-isolation.

On Wednesday, he will meet with Erdogan face to face in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. The focus of the talks is expected to be on Syria.
