More than 9,263 new cases of coronavirus infection have been confirmed in Russia in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of infections to 299,941, officials said on Tuesday.
Only the United States has a higher number of infections in the world.
Although the number of new daily infections in Russia has stopped rising, the situation remains complicated, said Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin on Monday, who also confirmed infection with the Covid-19 virus.
Tuesday is the fourth consecutive day with less than 10,000 new infections in 24 hours.
Monday was the first day since the beginning of May that this number was less than 9,000.
The number of new Covid-19-related deaths has risen by 115 since Monday and now stands at 2,837.
Critics criticize Russia for failing to report all the deaths of the Covid-19 outbreak in order to portray the scale of the crisis on a smaller scale.
The Russian authorities deny that they falsified the data, explaining that they only collect data on deaths caused directly by the coronavirus.
