Happy New Year: Russian children gifted empty boxes, dangerous injections
It's better to give than to receive
Russia doesn’t use Google Calendar so they celebrate Christmas on a different day over here. Also it’s more of a religious thing. Which means the fir tree and the old man with the swag bag is a New Year tradition.
So what kind of cool New Year gifts did Russian kids get this year? Here is a news report from the Republic of Bashkortostan:
On December 22, a New Year event with the distribution of gifts was held in Demsky park [in Ufa], but some children found absolutely nothing in the gifted boxes—they were empty, according to the parents dissatisfied with the situation. […]
“[Children] were promised gifts to everyone. As a result, there were not enough gifts for all. And the parents of the children, who got the gifts, said that the children had come home, opened the boxes—and they were empty,” [a mother whose kid got an empty box] clarified.
Some people have rudely speculated that the gifts were stolen by local Grinches. But others correctly pointed out that an empty box is a gift.
A few days later, in Moscow, a program on Russia’s Channel One smugly filmed itself giving gifts to children with cancer. Guess what happened next.
“After the congratulatory street program, Ded Moroz loudly announced into the microphone that he was delivering gifts to children. He left 4 (!) bags of gifts and immediately left. Imagine my surprise, or rather shock, when the bags contained empty sets of boxes, without gifts for children! There are many different sets of boxes, folded like nesting dolls—one inside the other. And that's all,” [a volunteer] wrote on her Instagram.
But who needs New Year presents after receiving the gift of life (a totally unproven and unnecessary genetic injection)?
It’s only for kids 12-17. But don’t feel left out if you’re a six-year-old:
Still not young enough for Putin, of course:
Sputnik-M—the Russian government’s vaccine Happy Meal—is a grotesque crime against humanity, specifically against human children.
By the way: will the Russian government ever disclose how many children have “died” from COVID-19? Maybe they can do a news report on it? Or is Russian state-funded TV too busy giving empty boxes to cancer kids? That does sound like a lot of work. Exhausting, really.
Enjoy your genetic vaccine, kiddos. ‘Tis the season of giving.
