I agree with Riley on all points written in his brilliantly articulated news update from Russia. I really hope the WHO follows through and leaves Russia. And I really hope Sputnik V and all the other Russian concoctions NEVER get WHO approval. AND I hope this WHO spat escalates into a tit for tat feud. Russia needs to nip the $71 million WHO contribution in the bud and STOP throwing good money after bad. Plutnicki begging the WHO to stay is ridiculous. Injecting Russian children (applies to ALL innocent children WITHOUT informed consent and WITH their whole future life in front of them) is a heinous crime.
Such a shame. It would indeed have appeared to be a golden opportunity. But then again, appearances can be deceiving…
I always enjoy reading your essays, Edward, and getting a glimpse of what life is like in Russia. What advice would you have for many of us (like here in Canada), that have found ourselves inexorably falling under the yoke of dictatorship?
I love it that you are right there IN Moscow...it makes me think romantic thoughts like when in the old days news from "far off lands" was transmitted via morse code from the basement of some ancient crumbling building...cool. I have often traveled to Moscow to record music with their fabulous musicians...sad I won't be doing that for a while. Thanks again!!
Great investigative work yet again, Riley. Russia's plea to the WHO reminds one of the Little Anthony and the Imperials' tune Take Me Back. "Take me back, i'm begging you." The mindset which informs the Russian leadership is corporate multinational bureaucratese, so what else to expect? 4IR all the way.
Over coffee and chocolate or sushi or lo mein or borscht, let the world's people get together without their corrupt leaders.
Expected reaction: Russia clones the WHO, calls it Eurasian Health Organization, in partnership with Mr. Gref. Eventually, that clone will be as corrupt as the WHO is today, but it will promote Russian products (or Western European clotshots made in Russian factories). An army of Western NGOs and NED-backed Russian language media will continue to make younger Russians believe that everything in the NATO-West is pure gold while the majority won't even notice that there's a new WHO clone and due to the lack of efficient media organizations in Russia (not US-backed), many interested Russians won't even know about those scary things we in the West already know, like Gates' influence, germ games, genetically modified mosquitoes, dozens of epidemiologists questioning the effectiveness of clotshots or mrna-shots against respiratory diseases, the military background of JHU and other Western "health" organizations and projects (keywords like "security" in health security agency), social credit systems coming to a count(r)y near you, CBDC (the abolition of cash - Canadian truckers?) and simultaneous worldwide attempts to introduce what Gates called digital certificates in 2020 - QR codes and digital ids for things that used to be available without id, now limited to smartphone slaves...
In my mind, Russia and China each seem to be taking one step forward and then one step backward in their relationships with the U.N. and the WEF/Reset bunch! One day I am rooting for them for standing their ground and the next day, they are right there with the rest of them, or even ahead of them!
"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" plays a part in this I think
On one hand the West tries to kill off Russians with war, biolabs, etc... and on the other hand it tries to save Russians with vaccination, hmmm... maybe it's the other way around !
In about 10 years when vaccinations have accomplished depopulation and nation states are broken and battered into submission the WHO will rule the world.
Hey Riley, do you have any thoughts on the potential motives behind the recent lockdown in North Korea?
i think they fear being out of the loop when the next virus that USSA creates and leaks then not having access to the data
Bravo Edward - you tell 'em. The BRICS must plough their own furrow now they have gotten this far along the line. They have all they need; population/labour, resources, a monetary system and the potential to create a true multipolar world.
They do need to dump Elvira Nabiullina fast - she is a snake-in-the-grass WEF Young Global Leader - Putin must know this - so who's side is he on really?
A staggering number of dissidents who are supposedly awake have their own preferred poisons -- (Novavax, Australian covax, Chinese vax, Russian Sputnik vax, Indian Covaxin). Depressing, to say the very least. Even if the WHO escalates its tiff with Russia and leaves Russia, I am afraid that those predators in the Russian establishment will just form their own form of WHO with India, China etc. to perpetrate genocide in their own preferred methods.
This is all becoming almost trite, but the tankies and the Tucker Carlsonbros with their love of Putin just will not see it. The Slavic Duce is leveraging Russia's traditional advantage (sic) in totalitarian ideology; naturally at the same time he does not want to fall behind the West in techniques of totalitarian control. What the hell would be the point of working his ass off to resurrect Stalinism and foregoing all the fun new genetic engineering toys? Nothing particularly obscure going on here.
