Austrian newspaper: Coronavirus “infects” Russians with poverty


Crisis caused by recession in the economy and rampant coronavirus, more and more affects the lives of ordinary people in Russia. Many of them remain out of work. This was written by the Austrian newspaper Der Standart in an article with a loud headline "Coronavirus infects Russians with poverty." However, not all Austrians agree with the opinion of their press.


Oleg, a resident of Zhukovsky (near Moscow), the father of three children, recently worked in the fitness industry. Now he is forced to sit at home without work and, as a result, practically without a livelihood. And he is not alone in this. In Moscow alone, about 300 thousand people are employed in the fitness industry, and almost all of them are now unemployed.

An original way out for them at this difficult time was found by Nikolai Alekseenko, the head of one of the rating agencies in the construction sector. He offers former fitness trainers to go to the construction site and work as general laborers:

These are trained people, and they have strong, muscular bodies. Why not drag stones or dig trenches?

He asks.

It is not by chance that we drew attention to the construction industry, the newspaper explains. Migrants from the former Soviet republics made up a very large share of it, and with the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, many of them left for their homeland, leaving the construction sector in Russia without workers.

But not only construction suffers, but also other sectors of the economy. A low oil price can leave unemployed more than 6 percent of Russian residents (those who work in the informal sector are not included here, but there are a lot of them), and the country's GDP may fall by 8 percent.

Readers who form their own opinion and do not allow people like the author above to impose someone else's point of view should ask themselves whether the statement that Russia has an enviably low public debt and huge gold reserves will be unfounded. out of the current crisis is much better than any other western state? The Russians have at least reserves that can be used in difficult times. The increase in Russian gold reserves in recent years has been wise and far-sighted policies Vladimir Putin

    - Yes, this is good ... there would be no happiness - so misfortune helped ... - It's like with sanctions ... - in Russia, they somehow started to get out ...
    - And in the construction sector, migrant workers do not need Russia at all ... - Russia in general - do not need migrant workers; Chinese supposedly "saviors of the Russian economy" are also not needed, which, apart from the virus, will not bring anything to Russian land (and the Russian land itself will be completely unusable) ...

    Coronavirus “infects” Russians with poverty

    - What can I say ... - In Russia, people lived poorly ... - there’s nothing to get used to living well ... - Now they’ll also conduct “next manipulations” with bank deposits ... - that’s how it will become “more fun” ...

    Russian Ambassador to the US Antonov spoke about the lies of the American media about the fight against COVID-19 in Russia.

    Of concern is the appearance of false information in the American media about the allegedly inefficient work of the Russian government in combating a new type of pneumonia.
    Absurd references are made to certain "pseudo-specialists" who rely in their judgments only on statements made by Russian officials taken out of context.
    It’s obvious that there are gross attempts to switch public attention from the USA from the difficult situation with coronavirus in the country to the situation in other states, ”the Russian ambassador said in a statement.

    1. Europe wonders why there are so few people infected with the virus in Russia. The Austrian newspaper Der Standart, in an article on the publication’s website, notes that Russia, which the West is used to underestimating, copes with the epidemic much better than many governments in developed European countries.
    Der Standart admits that even with all the shortcomings of the built-in system for filtering passenger traffic (the publication does not specify which ones - approx. Ed.), In general, the actions of the Russian authorities were more consistent and logical than the measures taken by their colleagues in European countries .
    Der Standart concludes that the REASONS for SUCCESS of the Russian state in the fight against coronavirus are due to the effectiveness of its sanitary-epidemiological service, whose work was debugged during the Soviet era, as well as a number of measures taken by the government almost immediately after the appearance of coronavirus in Chinese Wuhan.

    2. And the Director of the Institute for Health Economics at the Higher School of Economics Larisa Popovich confirmed that the success of the Russian government in the fight against coronavirus was made possible thanks to the rich experience of Russian doctors and the clear actions of federal and regional authorities.

      Workers in industrial enterprises and medical institutions came forward as a united front to repel the coronavirus enemy.

      - What are the "industrial enterprises" ??? “You obviously manipulate the slogans of the times of the USSR ...” - my great-grandmother, who is an eyewitness of those times, very often expresses this ...
      - Какие это предприятия сегодня работают??? - Уж не "Уралвагон" ...сердешный ...- один кое-как в одну смену за всю страну отдувается??? - Или кипучая работа идёт по всей стране... - на всех верфях, фабриках и заводах; шахтах и приисках; чугунолитейных и сталепрокатных гигантских металлургических предприятиях.. и т.д... - А в медицинских учреждениях; больницах, поликлиниках...- весь "многочисленный" медперсонал не смыкает глаз в борьбе с эпидемией...
      - Well, probably ...- it is ...- or rather, it was in the distant past; and today ... - everything is like today ...

          - Is it a joke or something ??? - If yes, then it is clear ... - And if ...
          - А "если", то могу лично Я вам вполне определённо сказать про город Омск (про мой город)... - про некогда процветающий индустриальный аграрно-промышленный могучий сибирский город, имеющий когда-то... - мощный НФПЗ (бензин, авиационный керосин, мазут, дизельное топливо, смазочные масла, смазки, битумы, нефтяной кокс)..; гигантское Объединение Омскхимпром; десятки металлообрабатывающих и механико сборочных заводов; Производственное объединение "Полёт" - одно из крупнейших машиностроительных предприятий России, которое специализируется (специализировалось когда-то) на выпуске ракетно-космической и авиационной техники и т.д. и т.д...
          - And why only ...- once it was not produced in factories ... in Omsk ...- it’s even hard to say; and how many agricultural products were regularly sent from Omsk (grain, pork, beef, lamb, poultry, cereals, vegetable oil, cheeses) ...- whole compounds ... - It used to be ...

              - Yes, they did “facades”, Khrushchev urgently repaired outside, stuccoed and roofs were blocked ... - but they didn’t have time ... - so they left in the winter ... - with all this “winter plaster” ...
              - Да, Омск -хороший город; но...- как попал лет 30 назад в "немилость" Москве - так и остался до сих пор в этой "опале"... - И, если Омск и посещают "московские гости", то всё мельком и мимоходом...
              - Да, и ещё Омск постигла страшная непоправимая трагедия... - это "двадцатилетнее губернаторство" города Омска Л.К.Полежаева (сам он, судя по его внешности - наполовину этнический казах)... - ставленника Казахстана... - Вот он за все 20 лет своего "правления" и распространил "влияние" Казахстана на город Омск...- результат такого "правления"... - просто плачевный для города Омска...
              - За 20 лет такого "правления" Омск был просто отброшен на полвека назад... - Как тогда омичи могли выбрать такого губернатора и кто его тогда протолкнул на пост губернатора...- так и неясно до сих пор... - Были тогда смутные бандитские 90-е ...прошлого века... - вот на этой мутной волне и состоялись эти "выборы"... - Сейчас этого губернатора формально отстранили от власти ... - но всё казахское лобби так и осталось тихой сапой всем заправлять... - Такие вот дела...

                So proteges of Moscow sit everywhere. They don’t care for their people, they are chosen not by the people of the region, but by Moscow! To spite! You can’t imagine it on purpose.
