The battle for Russia
Huge opposition to nationwide QR-tagging, but does the government even care?
Things are getting very confusing and very weird here in the Motherland.
In the opinion of your humble Moscow correspondent, the Battle For Russia is currently underway. If the State Duma pushes through the nationwide Digital Ausweis, things will get very, very messy. We suspect the maniacs behind the curtain want this to happen—they want massive social and economic destabilization. It is part of their plan, in Russia and all over the world. Then of course Schwab and his merry band of gene-freaks will swoop in and save the day. Yay.
This is what State Duma Deputy Mikhail Delyagin was hinting at—actually, stating quite openly—when he made a video earlier this month warning of a Big Pharma/Big Tech coup d'état in Russia. His video was wiped from YouTube, by the way. But you can still read the transcript.
So, where do things stand currently?
Russian internet rage
Pushback against this legislation—which could be voted on as soon as mid-December—is most visible online (although we shouldn’t discount the numerous video appeals and rallies being held in towns and cities across the country). State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin recently asked for public feedback on the bill on his Telegram channel. He probably wasn’t expecting to receive 300,000+ comments, the vast majority of them vocally opposed to the QR-ization of Russia. Our friends and colleagues at Russian Faith have an excellent write-up detailing the response to Volodin’s Telegram message.
Volodin was later asked to respond to the flood of angry comments. He was basically just like: “maybe the bill can be improved but it should still be passed.” Not good!
It appears huge pressure is being placed on individual regions to sign off on the Ausweis so that it can sail through the State Duma. For example, the parliament of North Ossetia originally voted against backing the nationwide digital ID, but then weirdly “changed its mind” and voted to support it. Did someone get an angry phone call from Moscow? Ha-ha. Yes.
Business as usual for Russia’s “COVID Party”?
We hate to end this article with Doom and Gloom but frankly the situation is not looking super great on the ground here. We will defer to an excellent but rather sobering piece just published by Katyusha.org:
The Covid Party prohibits street protests, ignores the record number of appeals to the Duma and other authorities in recent history (only about 400 thousand people have written to the State Duma Speaker Volodin), incites the security forces against dissenting persons, insults and intimidates millions of Russians and then has the audacity to declare that only a minority are against QR codes; the whole country is ready to plunge into a COVID digital concentration camp with the single stroke of a pen.
More than a week has passed since the Duma made the decision to postpone consideration of the government package on QR. The degree of tension in society is increasing every day, but in the last two days, when the regional legislative councils began to report one after another on the approval of the government initiative, the situation became openly explosive.
We have already talked about the lawlessness in the Moscow Regional Duma, where the deputies approved the anti-people initiative, as almost everywhere, without discussions with critics, but at the same time “played democracy” by issuing an invitation to our experts 40 minutes before the start of the meeting.
Something similar happened today in the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg, where a pre-planned “round table” was to take place with the participation of professors Alexander Redko and Pavel Vorobyov, as well as Anna Schwabauer, an expert of the OUZS. However, the round table was canceled at the last moment. And then it became known that the St. Petersburg legislature approved QR-bills.
At the time of this publication, North Ossetia was the only exception to the shameful list of regional compromisers. But in the evening there were reports that they had “put the squeeze on her” and that the deputies “unexpectedly” decided to re-vote “for”.
Tomorrow, on November 26, at 12:00, the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation will consider QR laws (especially for fans of winter walks with posters, we inform you the address: Miusskaya Square, 7). Independent experts may not be allowed there again, despite tens of thousands of your appeals. So far we have only verbal assurances from the OPRF staff that it seems that they should let the OUZS expert, Ph.D. Anna Schwabauer. God forbid Anna be able to voice the position of a huge part of society (according to almost all polls, more than 90% of Russians are against QR laws, and such figures are collected not only in patriotic publics, but also in polls of members of the Public Chamber, and even in state-owned RIA Novosti, which had to delete figures that were inconvenient for the “party of COVID” twice). But even if this happens, this, unfortunately, does not at all guarantee that the chamber will make a decision in favor of the people.
The speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin also decided to “play democracy” (at the same time he ordered to close the entrance to the Duma to citizens without QR-ausweis from December 6). He opened comments on his TG channel and received an absolute record in a day for both TG and, in general, for any Russian politician. At the time of this publication, in one day, about 400 thousand Russians wrote to Volodin, of whom almost all demand not to adopt laws on QR codes. This situation has already scared the “party of COVID”, which launched rumors through its network of media and TG channels that “the Kremlin will not study the comments in Volodin’s TG” and, in general, these are all “bots”. […]
Meanwhile, all this noise hides the real preparation of the legalization of QR-law. The Security Committee of the State Duma has already approved this anti-constitutional initiative, next in line are a couple more committees and the solemn rehabilitation of the approaches of the Third Reich (it was there that for the first time in the history of mankind “health passports” appeared) on December 16. […]
Only you and I can and must prevent this lawlessness: while it is not too late, increase the pressure on the deputies and local authorities, demanding their responsibility to the people.
By the way, for those who have not yet woken up: [Big-Brain behind Sputnik V] Alexander Gintsburg is already coming for our children. Temporary loopholes with PCR tests will not help us either: in France, the authorities have already announced a reduction in the test period to 1 day. The world's population is being driven into a new COVID slavery with compulsory or even forced injections.
We have nothing to add.
