On December 12, Russia’s Doctors For Truth held a conference in Moscow to discuss what the heck is happening in this country. There seemed to be broad agreement that the insane “public health” measures being imposed upon Russians were not so healthy and were in desperate need of a rethink.
Your correspondent was in attendance and is very pleased to report that the event was a great success. We were even able to speak briefly with the conference’s organizer, Dr. Vladislav Shafalinov.
The fate of Russia’s national QR code law—possibly the most unpopular legislation in Russian history—could decide Russia’s short-to-long-term future. So we thought it would be prudent to ask him his thoughts on this matter. Here is what Shafalinov told us:
What is happening in Russia is almost the same as what is happening all over the world. I don’t think the situation in the Russian Federation is worse than, say, in Europe. But in November a QR code law was sent to the Russian State Duma. Fortunately they refused to accept it and pushed this law down to the regional level. Next week they are going to collect [the region’s] answers—replies—for this [national] QR code law. And then they will decide whether or not to accept this law. And I believe that they will not [pass the legislation].
The doctor said the conference was an opportunity to discuss “all aspects” of COVID-19—dialogue that would hopefully “change views” about the virus and the civilization-bending measures purportedly introduced to combat it.
Shafalinov stressed that the ongoing attempt to divide Russians based on vaccination status was deeply damaging to the nation and only benefits Russia’s enemies. We tend to agree.
Your correspondent was also delighted to meet Dr. Alexander Redko—one of the most fearless critics of the Russian government’s asinine COVID measures. We’ve blogged about him before.
Unsurprisingly, Redko was a perfect gentleman and modest to a fault. He gave us his business card so maybe soon Edward Slavsquat will feature Exclusive Redko Scoops.
His speech at the conference was reportedly a big hit—but we foolishly missed it (we were getting snacks and talking to people).
The eight hour-long event can be found in full on YouTube. Unfortunately there’s only a Russian version (for now). Over the next few days we hope to re-watch the whole thing and publish highlights from various speakers, including from Redko.
Also: we were delightfully surprised to bump into Andrey Tsyganov, the head editor of Katyusha.org. You need to start reading Katyusha. That’s how the healing begins.
Another all-star whom we had the pleasure of meeting: Alexandra Mashkova-Blagih, one of Russia’s leading conservative activists. With 260,000 Instagram followers, she is one of the country’s most popular and outspoken voices against compulsory vaccination and QR codes. She has a captivating energy to her—and she’s quite elegant too, we might add. Here she is making fun of a slimy RT “journalist” who tried to ambush her at the conference:
Yes, we already know what some of you are thinking: “But I thought RT always Questions More and stands for common sense and free speech and is anti-PC and Totally Based”—you poor little lamb.
Mashkova-Blagih operates an excellent Telegram channel, “Leave Us Alone,” which you should join and read every day. She’s great.
We met another activist who runs the popular Telegram channel Ivan Chai. She told us that she was recently in Kazan—which is now fully under the QR code Yoke. There were many harrowing news reports when digital cattle tags became mandatory for riding public transport in Tatarstan. However, according to our source, authorities have largely given up on enforcing the rule. She took two bus rides through the Tatar capital and was never asked to show her vax status. Interesting.
Another fun anecdote: While mingling with fellow conference-goers during a coffee break, we asked a doctor about his opinion of the “Sputnik vaccine.”
“It’s not a vaccine, it’s an experimental drug,” he corrected us. Having seen numerous post-”vaccination” complications, he said he didn’t think this experimental drug was particularly safe.
The Russian government has gone completely rogue—full-on Schwab, to be perfectly honest. But will the Russian people allow their country to be Reset?
Increasingly, it seems the answer could be Nyet.
