A video shot by Russian company employees, academic institutions, colleges, primary and secondary schools, and kindergartens has been broadcast widely by mainstream media and social media platforms in both countries.

The footage includes messages from Russians-young and old-hailing the aid received from China, and expressing their best wishes for the relationship between the two nations.

Andrey Klimov, first secretary of the general council of Russia's largest political party, United Russia, said China's call for more international cooperation during the pandemic had been successful.

The measures adopted by the Chinese government have been effective, as the world has witnessed the number of infections in the country fall rapidly thanks to the efforts of its medical personnel and all residents, he said.

Klimov, also deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs, said it is important for all countries to make scientifically-based and professional decisions on issues such as how the virus originated.

He criticized the politicization of public health issues during the pandemic, adding, "The practical cooperation between Russia and China is significant."

Klimov suggested that the two countries step up bilateral cooperation, and said the Communist Party of China and United Russia would bring together researchers to study the virus and to test reagents, vaccines and medicines.
