The coronavirus spread did not affect Russian President Vladimir Putin’s travel schedule, although it cannot be ruled out that timetable of major foreign forums could be adjusted, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, APA reports quoting TASS.

"There are no corrections [in Putin’s travel schedule] yet, he tours the Russian regions, it’s [his] usual working schedule," the spokesman said. "We cannot rule out that timetable of some major international events will be corrected, but the [Russian] President has no special limitations in his schedule."

When asked whether the coronavirus affected Putin’s meetings with European leaders, Peskov noted that "in nearest perspective" Putin has no contacts planned in Europe.

Peskov also underscored that summits of Shanghai Cooperation Organization and BRICS, scheduled for July 21-23 in St. Petersburg, had not been postponed.
