Russia Lifting Restrictions, but Coronavirus Hasn’t Gone Away

Russia may not be getting over COVID-19 quickly, but the Holy Spirit is moving as many are coming to Christ.

India recently passed Russia as having the fourth-most confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world. But Russia hasn’t left the virus behind, says Eric Mock of Slavic Gospel Association.

Many people in Russia are suffering and dying from “double pneumonia,” cases, even if these are not officially counted as COVID-19. “In the midst of this, the government basically has removed restrictions saying everything is back to normal. This has been a fascinating transition because, as we’ve been saying in previous interviews, Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus are basically about four weeks behind [the US]. Yet when they began easing restrictions, it was almost identical to the time that we did it as well.”
