The Kremlin announced on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is going into self-isolation due to coronavirus instances in his inner entourage.

Putin made the statement during a phone chat with Tajik President Emomali Rahmon, according to the Kremlin.

Putin has gotten two doses of the Russian coronavirus vaccination Sputnik V, which he received in April.

On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin attended several public engagements. He visited with Russian Paralympians, joined joint military drills with Belarus, and met with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Putin is "absolutely healthy," according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, but will self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who has got the virus. He didn't say how long Putin would be isolated, but he did say that the president would go about his business as usual.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, responded "of course, yes" when asked if Putin had tested negative for the virus.

Peskov did not specify which of Putin's acquaintances had been affected, only that there had been multiple cases.
