Dmitry Medvedev: Worse than NATO?
The deputy chairman of Russia's security council is not a fan of national sovereignty
Moscow has warned Washington it will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure its security; step one: send Dmitry Medvedev into permanent exile?
In an interview with TASS, Medvedev admitted he has fantasies about bringing criminal charges against people who “sow panic” on social media by undermining the unassailable safety and efficacy of Russia’s totally unproven genetic slurry. (Don’t worry, you’ll only be brought to justice if you “deliberately” spread “fake” information.)
But just to be on the safe side, you should “filter what you say” to make sure you don’t inadvertently damage the reputation of a coercive medical experiment with zero transparency.
What other nuggets of wisdom can Medvedev share with us, the lowly sowers of panic?
Medvedev’s gross interview with TASS reminded us of a truly deranged article he wrote in November, in which he meditated on the “lessons” gleaned from the global outbreak of cold-like symptoms. Let’s review some highlights.
“It should be illegal to disobey the Bill Gates-funded WHO”
Medvedev really likes the World Health Organization. So much so that he thinks this prestigious and very trustworthy group of technocrats should be given sweeping powers in times of (alleged) health crisis:
Cooperation through the WHO has improved somewhat. However, problems remain to this day. The main one is that the organization does not have the leverage to force states to pursue a single, coordinated policy at all levels. National governments have the right to disobey WHO recommendations or issue their own decisions, sometimes contradicting the world ones.
In this regard, it is necessary to think about giving WHO the authority to make significant mobilization decisions in the interests of the entire world community in an emergency situation (for example, during a pandemic). It is likely that in order for the WHO to obtain such authority, it will be necessary for the UN members to adopt an international convention on cooperation in this area.
Just a reminder: this was written by the deputy chairman of Russia’s security council—whose job, as we understand it, entails safeguarding Russia’s national sovereignty.
Compulsory vaccination: “very liberal”
Medvedev is a proponent of coercive injections. But not all mandatory clot-shot policies are equal. According to Medvedev, Russia has adopted a “very liberal” approach to bullying people into taking unproven genetic drugs:
All countries in relation to compulsory vaccination were divided into three groups: a) those where compulsory vaccination has been introduced; b) those where compulsory vaccination has been introduced for certain categories of citizens; c) those where vaccination remains purely voluntary. Russia, as already noted, fell into category “b)”.
At the same time, we use legal restrictive measures against unvaccinated individuals, which consist in the possibility of imposing a ban on travel to other countries, the possibility of refusing admission to educational organizations and healthcare institutions, the possibility of suspension from work or refusal to hire. Vaccination against coronavirus is not yet included in the general national vaccination schedule. There is also no criminal or administrative liability for failure by citizens to fulfill the obligation to vaccinate (despite the fact that liability is established for legal entities for failure to comply with the instructions of Rospotrebnadzor). In other words, the legislation in this area remains very liberal in our country.
With cattle tags widely used in St. Petersburg and many other regions, vaccination is becoming less and less “voluntary” in Russia. So what Medvedev is really saying here (back in November, very prophetic) is: “slowly boiling your citizens alive in a giant pot of clot-shot juice is a very liberal thing to do.”
Cold-like symptoms accelerated the fourth industrial revolution, but too many people still use cash
According to Medvedev, the best thing about the global cold-like symptoms crisis was that it destroyed small businesses while enriching corporate online retailers. The tragedy, of course, is that there are still way too many people who only use cash—which is totally unacceptable:
COVID-19 has seriously accelerated the fourth industrial revolution. Since March 2020, there has been an explosion in the quantity and quality of a variety of online services, whether it be grocery delivery, access to government services, virtual cultural events, bank payments or distance learning. This was due to the urgent need to avoid physical contact between people. But online tools have already firmly entered our lives, they have become extremely in demand, familiar and necessary every day.
At the same time, a new problem has emerged, which previously received much less attention: the digital divide of individual citizens, as well as entire regions and states. So, at present, cash payments are becoming a thing of the past, there is a widespread transition to non-cash forms of payments. However, according to various estimates, 1.7 billion people, that is, 22% of the world's population, still do not have access to modern banking technologies.
Think of all the poor souls who don’t have access to Sbercoin.
“Segregation is good for democracy”
Probably you will not be surprised to learn that Medvedev is open to the idea of creating a clot-shot caste system that would “significantly infringe on the rights of the unvaccinated.”
He even suggests uninjected Russians should be paid less because they “pose a threat to society”:
Of course, this creates a certain segregation on the basis of vaccination. However, such measures are quite effective… After all, unvaccinated people harm not only themselves, but also those around them, especially children… Therefore, the improvement of legislation in this area is a challenge that our state has yet to find an answer to. And, to put it bluntly, that response will have to depend on the level of threat to public safety posed by the pandemic. In certain situations, public safety and social well-being of the entire population become more important than respect for the rights and freedoms of an individual citizen. Protecting the majority is a fundamental principle of democracy.
Proposal: NATO and Russia should team up and encircle Dmitry Medvedev with military bases. This would be a great triumph for world peace, since Medvedev poses an existential threat to humanity.
He’s simply terrible. And he’s also deputy chairman of Russia’s security council.
