Why the West quashed Russia's exit from quarantine


Statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the termination of “a single period of non-working days for all” and “the restoration of the work of all industries economics»Our country caused a flurry of emotions in the West. No, no one, of course, did not expect that they would rejoice for us and wish good luck ...


However, the level of utterly bile and vicious negativity that has spilled over on this occasion to the pages of the vast majority of the media of “civilized countries”, in truth, causes a slight upheaval. What makes such a frenzy of those who constantly impose themselves on Russia as advisers, teachers, "partners", "friends" and why?

"They all lie, they have everything bad!"


Something like this, with quite distinct hysterical notes, is made by the statements of those Western journalists and “representatives of the expert community” who aim to convince the audience that, thanks to the decision of the president, our country is “committing collective suicide”. Well, how so ?! The Russian mortality from COVID-19 cannot be so unrealistic, fantastically low! The number of those who died in our country from a disease with tens of thousands mowing the inhabitants of “developed countries”, which is just over two thousand people, is simply insulting for states that for decades boasted their alleged superiority over us in their “standard of living,” including medicine. Okay, not so many Chinese have died (although they also lie, of course!), But they are smart, they make smartphones. But these “mire barbarians certainly cannot save their fellow citizens so much more efficiently than us,“ civilized ”and“ developed ”ones! On this occasion, one of the leading “mouthpieces” of the West, the Financial Times, has created a whole “theory”. According to its authors, "Russia underestimates the real mortality from coronavirus by 70%." Where are such conclusions from?

Yes, simply "sleight of hand" and small arithmetic "tricks" for the smallest. Sorry, for the most gullible. We take the “general data on mortality in Moscow and St. Petersburg” for the month of April of this year, gleaned from unknown sources, find supposedly “1444 deaths above the normal mortality rate”, automatically add them to the figures of “official statistics”, and voila - before us is "an increase of 72% in the number of victims of COVID-19 in Russia"! On what basis are these very “excess” deaths attributed to the coronavirus? How can you try to "sculpt" conclusions across the country on the data of only two cities, albeit one of the most densely populated in Russia? And these are just the most obvious of the questions.

The bottom of unprofessionalism. Top shamelessness. This is not even an attempt to “fit the task into an answer”, but a completely egregious quackery, in which the “answer” is taken, as they say, “from the ceiling” and quite naturally does not withstand any analysis and criticism. Yes, in comparison with April last year, mortality in our capital increased by 18%. Even by 20% - if compared with the same time period of the previous decade. However, why not recognize the obvious and the well-known instead of the figurative juggling with numbers - the number of people dying from life increases during any serious crisis. General psychological depression, a state of constant stress, fear, excitement, anxiety - all this provokes the growth of heart attacks, strokes (which are one of the most deadly diagnoses in our country), exacerbation of other chronic diseases that can lead to the grave.

Add to this the increased load on the medical system and, by the way, another extremely important factor - the categorical (and quite understandable during the pandemic) reluctance of many citizens and close approach to any medical institutions, sharply increasing the number of those who are trying to "endure" or be saved self-medication ... These are real causes of increased mortality, not fictitious, but who are they interested in in the West? They don’t fit into the “concept” - down with them! At the same time, FT journalists are modestly silent about how mortality in New York increased in the same April. Six times if you want to know! And so - in almost every of the leading European capitals. Somewhere more, somewhere less, but still, at times, not percent. It is not surprising that the above-mentioned publication (as well as the same libel published by the New York Times), Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called “a real salvo of fakes”, and representatives of the State Duma have already promised the publication of trouble, considering its publication “an ordered lie on a global scale” .

“Coronavirus will take over Russia and overthrow Putin!”


However, the actions of the Kremlin, which testify to the fact that our country is emerging from a pandemic without catastrophic losses, both human and economic, are much more rampant in the West as the collapse of the hopes and hopes cherished there that COVID-19 will become our downfall statehood. Well, at least - it will lead to the removal from power of such a hated and frightening leader, with the departure of which the “friends” of our Fatherland, both inside him and outside the country, are linked with plans to destroy him. What did Western propellers and “analysts” not “prophesy” from the moment the incidence curve in our country went up and a national quarantine was declared: “Coronavirus will cover Russia and bring down Putin's rating!” - This is The Guardian. “Pandemic shakes the chair under Putin” - this is Radio Liberty. "Putin expects a riot of the Russian public" - Washington Examiner. And when oil prices also fell down, the whole audience was completely perked up and almost rushed to put champagne on the ice in anticipation of an “inevitably impending victory”. Everyone dispersed here: “Because of the ruin, Russia expects the impossibility of waging wars and the inevitable democratization!” - Anders Aslund, the “best friend” of our country, fluttered on the pages of The Hill, who had not predicted to her recently, except perhaps the fate of Atlantis. “Economic troubles will cut Putin’s wings,” the Financial Times itself arrogantly concluded, promising with real satisfaction that the Russians would have “real suffering” in the very near future. Just think, even such a small thing as the Finnish Etelä-Saimaa, connected to this desperately fake choir, and with all the possible fervor! A certain “Russia specialist Jussi Lassila” on its pages predicted our country no less than “a total crisis, chaos and a change of power” ...

And here is how you order today to explain to your readers, listeners, viewers that all this ridiculous "vanging" turned out to be a complete zilch. No “clipped wings”, no rebellion, no chaos, no crisis (in any case, “total”). Putin has not gone anywhere and is clearly not going to go ... In this, of course, extremely unsightly situation for them, everyone dodges as he can. However, one has to go to completely unimaginable feints and twists, which cannot be called anything but a mockery of logic. For example, most Western media outlets news The President’s decision to weaken quarantine is strongly emphasized that “Russia removes restrictions by moving into third place in the world in terms of the number of infected COVID-19.” Well yes. But how could it be otherwise - with our scale and population of 145 million? All this is comparable except with the same United States, where, in fact, there are more than 6 times more cases. And the dead from the coronavirus - almost 40! Someone reproaches the “Russian authorities” for yet another “falsification”, claiming that the statements of their representatives about the exit of our country on the “plateau” of incidence do not correspond to reality. Sorry, but this thesis was expressed, first of all, by just the representative of the World Health Organization in our country - Melita Vujnovich, and not by someone in the Kremlin or the domestic Ministry of Health. However, he forgot - WHO has for some time no faith in Washington ... They, the bastards, it turns out, not only "work for China", as Trump said, but also for the Russians. Well, maybe they can recognize in the West that the “increase in the number of infected people" is primarily due to the increase in the number of tests done for COVID-19. I remind you that their volume is planned to be increased to 300 thousand a day - for comparison, in Ukraine over the entire period of the pandemic, one and a half times fewer people were checked.

Some passages taken to judge and argue about what is happening in Russia today are simply disgusting. For example, the president, who announced the long-awaited end of the period of universal self-isolation, is reproached for striving in such a way ... "to get rid of hungry mouths!" Like, instead of "just distributing money to citizens," this insidious despot and tyrant was about to "let out millions of defenseless people on the streets." Well, they all will die, naturally, of such and such a grandmother, which, in fact, is achieved by the Kremlin ... No, well, why should we hate our country and its leader in order to think of such a thing ?! Against this background, the reproaches to the president sounding at the same time that he is “shifting responsibility to the heads of the regions” are just babble. It’s interesting - what would Putin be reproached for, if he were to personally determine: in which area quarantine can already be removed, and in which it is too early? Surely, in "authoritarianism" and "usurpation of power." Well, they’d come up with something. All this is again from terrible complexes of representatives of those countries where the authorities disgraced themselves in the most natural way, showing their own incompetence and inability to manage in a crisis situation. In Spain, for example, already 3 relatives of coronavirus victims have filed a class action lawsuit against Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and his government for “wrong and unprofessional actions” during the pandemic. Almost 27 thousand dead with the local population - people can be understood.

The current reaction of the "collective West" to positive events in our country is as eloquent as possible. And absolutely sincere that the most unpleasant. It testifies, first of all, that Russia did not have “friends” or “partners” there, there is not and cannot be in principle. You should not expect from these gentlemen at least any unbiased attitude to our Fatherland and its objective assessment. They do not want anything good for us, hiding behind their own hypocritical "attention" only the desire to hurt more. And this is perhaps the only lesson that Russia should learn from what is happening.

    Everything is very simple. This is a distraction from what is happening in the UK and the Netherlands.

    https://index.minfin.com.ua/reference/coronavirus/geography/

    For objectivity, look at the website of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine.
    In the UK, with 32 deaths, 692 recovered, the rest are still sick. 344, Karl! This is 344%! At the level of statistical error. In fact, there are no survivors.
    In the Netherlands, with 5 dead, 510 recovered. 250% recovered. Also not ice.
    This is the official statistics. What is wrong with medicine or statistics, I do not know. But the fact is obvious: the search for a speck in the eye of someone else, with complete reluctance to notice the log in your own.

        What are you talking about? I write that in the UK, out of 100 people who are ill, ONE survives! The rest are dying. Does this say something about the state of their medicine? In the Netherlands, out of 100 cases, just over four survive. The rest are dying.
        This is the official statistics.
        And NYT information on mortality in Germany is not inclined to trust much.

        MOSCOW, May 12 - RIA Novosti.

        Mortality from respiratory diseases in January-March decreased by 9,8% compared with the same period in 2019, from pneumonia - by 15,3%, the press service of the Ministry of Health of Russia reported.

      Well, the number of patients, and even more so recovered, speaks more about the number and quality of tests performed. There may be many statistical errors. But the number of deaths is really an indicator. Especially in relation to the population of the country. And the countries of Western Europe here, unfortunately, show not very optimistic results. By the way, the countries of the former social. blocks look much more profitable here. Even the lands of the former GDR show many times better results than the lands of western Germany. The Germans are also trying to "unravel" this phenomenon, explaining this with reasons, one more fantastic than the other. But here's the interesting thing - they somehow find these excuses).
      In Russia (as in all countries of the former socialist camp) low mortality, apparently because effective institutes of sanitary and epidemiological standards, disinfection, vaccination, and civil self-defense are still working and not completely destroyed. And most importantly - this is the mentality of the peoples of these countries - ready to follow all these rules and norms. And Western society simply stupidly spoiled itself with all sorts of liberal-pseudo-democratic ideas, and is absolutely unable to hold the blow.

      In Russia, the population is almost 10 times larger than in Holland, but we nevertheless died 2,5 times less than that of the torch people. This is how statistics should be compared.

        I understand that you did not like arithmetic at school ...
        But I like the other comparison more. The table has the number of dead and recovered. If you add them up - these are those people who have ceased to be sick. Here it is necessary to proceed from them.
        So, out of 100 people who ceased to be sick in Russia, 4,6 people died and 95,4 people survived. And among the residents, 4,3 people survived, and 95,7 people died.
        Such a comparison seems to me more successful.

    It so happened that my father had to be put in a hospital for a blood transfusion (he has lymphocytic leukemia).
    I noticed - that masks are given out to the emergency room for 5 people for the whole day for 5 people - what kind of change is there every 2 hours ...? They bring a variety of people - including from the street with a temperature, in the queue for hospitalization, you can pick up anything.
    Doctors go in self-knitted dressings, sanitizers, however, are on all floors, but not all use them, the attitude to quarantine is relaxed.
    Dad picked up a disease during a week at the hospital, which all the other family members had been ill with for a week - easy and not covert-19. Coughing, temperature up to 38, a couple of days passed - we breathed a sigh of relief.

    The general impression is the absence of massive outbreaks of viral infection in our hospitals - it is an accident entirely dependent on the patient’s knowledge or non-knowledge of the disease and its self-isolation ...

    The main task of the virus was to block the activities of old faiths. Our mortality is minimal. Our wise men and gods helped us. As for other countries. China is a deadly friend to be wary of.

    And here is how you order today to explain to your readers, listeners, viewers that all this ridiculous "vanging" turned into a complete zilch. No “clipped wings”, no rebellion, no chaos, no crisis (in any case, “total”). Putin has not gone anywhere and is clearly not going to go ...

    In fact, the West predicted all this, based on the behavior of its population, which has lived for many years according to demo laws and knows how to fight and how to fight for their rights. This is what the West does not know, and therefore does not understand, that over the same many years, Russians have been used to patiently, for generations, enduring exploitation by the authorities. And they are indignant only in their kitchen. Any attempts to alter something aloud lead to the opposition to change - “it will be even worse”, “look at the neighbors”, etc. In short, slavery-in-blood Nothing_Not_Changed is not given to the West to understand, therefore Neukroi is right - nothing will change, it will be as always: poverty with the slogan “if there was no war”, and if it does, Pakhan promised us paradise.

Well, it cannot be so that in a more developed and democratic United Kingdom, more people died from the coronavirus in percentage terms than in authoritarian Russia. And in the United States, even more people died at times than in Russia and China. No, the Russians hide their dead.

      In terms of mortality, from coronavirus, it’s better ... The percentage of deaths from this disease is really low, and that "... not thanks, but contrary to ..." Knowing what a mess in hospitals, lack of basic protective equipment (medical masks and anti-plague robes), until recently, this was not enough, doctors and ambulance paramedics were given 2 masks per day and spin as you like. In addition, the doctors who contacted coronavirus patients were not paid the additional payments that our president prescribed. Rather, they paid, but not for 25-50 tons. rubles, as Putin promised, and to whom 500 rubles., to whom a thousand rubles. I'm writing about my region, St. Petersburg ....
