The special tunnel was manufactured by a Russian company based in the town of Penza and has been installed at his official Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow where he receives visitors, RIA said.
Demonstration footage of the tunnel, published by RIA, and shown above, showed masked people passing through it being sprayed with disinfectant from the ceiling and from the side.
