The Russians vs. the WHO: Good news, finally?
Maybe there's still hope (but let's also return to evidence-based analysis, please)
About six hours after I mentioned that a prominent conservative activist group in Russia (the dreaded “6th Column”) was petitioning the government to declare the World Health Organization an undesirable organization, this happened:
The Prosecutor General’s Office requested information from the FSB about threats from the WHO, following a request filed by The Public Commissioner for the Protection of the Family (OUZS) [a conservative family values advocacy group co-chaired by Katyusha’s Andrei Tsyganov — Edward].
Less than two weeks have passed since OUZS sent a request to the Ministry of Justice and the Prosecutor General’s Office, asking about the possibility of recognizing the World Health Organization as an undesirable organization in Russia. And to our surprise, the prosecutor’s office responded quite quickly.
In a response signed by the prosecutor of the department for supervision over the implementation of laws on federal security, interethnic relations, countering extremism and terrorism, O.N. Nikonorova, the Prosecutor General’s Office informed OUZS that, “as part of the consideration of the application, information was requested from the competent authorities about the presence of threats from the named organization. If there are grounds, the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation will take prosecutorial response measures.”
It will be very interesting how these same competent authorities (the FSB, for starters) will answer the prosecutor. We will not neglect to ask the prosecutor later if our state security specialists disclosed information about the systemic anti-demographic work of the WHO.
The Telegram update (written by OUZS, and republished by Stop Vaczism, which is a must-follow in my humble opinion) also noted that the WHO’s open promotion of 40 different genders should be reason enough for Moscow to cancel its membership in the Bill Gates-funded global health cabal.
I mean, they’ve got a point?
Allow me to preempt the party-pooper comments: Yes, I understand it is just a letter saying they’ll “look into it”; yes, I understand it’s very likely nothing more than a formality.
But c’mon, guys. Work with me, here.
As OUZS pointed out, it’s rather remarkable they received an answer within two weeks. It’s semi-miraculous, if you are familiar with how Russian bureaucracy operates.
If it really wanted to, the Prosecutor General’s Office probably could have claimed OUZS’ request got lost in the mail.
Well, now I guess we wait to see what Russia’s top spooks think about the WHO. (I’m not sure if their findings will ever be made public, assuming they actually do compile a dossier on Dr. Tedros, and his greasy mustache, for the Prosecutor General’s Office.)
Will the FSB write a 1,000-page report detailing all the obvious reasons why the WHO threatens Russia’s national security? Maybe. But, I have to admit, it’s probably not the most likely outcome. I’m pretty sure that if the FSB was interested in stopping WHO-sponsored health-terror in Russia, it would have taken action by now.
Then again, who knows? It’s 2023—absolutely anything is possible. That’s my motto, at least.
Some of you goofballs think I’m a black-pilled herald of doom, but that’s not true! I am always happy to highlight any and all efforts to hold Russia’s health-destroying upper management accountable for their extensive crimes.
For example, almost exactly one year ago I wrote about a very interesting meeting between Putin and the Yury Chikhanchin, head of the Federal Financial Monitoring Service.
During their chat, Russia’s president told Chikhanchin that he was upset by the fact that pharmaceutical companies were bribing Russian doctors and regional health administrators—giving Big Pharma inappropriate influence over Russian medicine.
Chikhanchin promised the FSB was already working on sniffing out corruption in Russia’s healthcare sector.
What came of this?
We don’t really know. Needless to say, the creeps who most urgently need to be sent to penal colonies (Gintsburg, Murashko, Popova, Sobyanin, Golikova, Skvortsova, etc.) are still roaming the streets.
However, there was one noticeable change in Russia’s health bureaucracy.
In May of this year, the director of the Vector Institute (which is operated by Popova’s Rospotrebnadzor), Rinat Maksyuto, was fired. A statement issued by Rospotrebnadzor explained that Maksyuto had been terminated after his “failure to take measures to resolve and prevent conflicts of interest”, and due to a “loss of confidence”.
Before this announcement, I had never heard of Maksyuto. But his Vector Institute played a prominent role in Russia’s “pandemic” response. In fact, the federally funded research center developed its own COVID “vaccine”, EpiVacCorona. It was not widely used, though.
I think it’s fair to assume this guy was a massive scam artist, but as Katyusha argued, Maksyuto was small potatoes compared to the other Pandemic Profiteers, in Russia and around the globe:
The fact that [Russia’s] vaccination campaign, with government funding, shell companies, and other dubious schemes, was about money and control over society (and not about healthcare at all) is obvious. […]
Where are we talking about people’s health here? As it was from the very beginning [of the “pandemic”], in no way are we talking about health—this was exclusively about money. It is thanks to the pandemic that Bill Gates and a dozen other oligarchs have earned over $70 billion. It was thanks to them that people were forcibly kept in their homes, in violation of all rights, and a system of total control, and dehumanization, was tested—while doubters were arrested.
Which brings us to the second part of this blog post—a heartfelt appeal to my readers to follow the facts, wherever they may lead us.
How exactly can PCR tests, genetic injections, and “health” passports protect Russia from biological threats?
In my last post I made the argument that the current available evidence suggests Moscow would not be opposed to the creation of a WHO-sponsored digital “health certificate” system.
Obviously (as I stressed in my article), the evidence could change. Moscow could announce today that it wants nothing to do with this idea. We’ll see.
My article didn’t hide the fact that I am highly critical of Moscow’s track record when it comes to “public health” measures—the short-lived introduction of domestic vaccine passports, the development of experimental, genetic injections, and its Sanitary Shield program.
A few commenters took exception to this characterization of the Russian government’s COVID measures. They argued such measures were warranted because Russia was, and still is, vulnerable to biological threats.
This is an argument that I’ve heard before (including the assertion that Russia is under attack from manmade biological agents, presumably developed by the West).
To each their own. But I would like to explain why I don’t agree with this theory.
First of all, PCR tests—which were widely used in Russia to “diagnose” COVID—are not designed to diagnose illnesses.
Off-Guardian has a terrific, carefully cited article, 40 Facts You NEED to Know: The REAL Story of “Covid”, which includes an entire section on PCR and Lateral Flow tests. I strongly encourage everyone to read it.
PCR tests are the backbone of Sanitary Shield—so how exactly will this bio-checkpoint system protect Russia from biological threats (assuming they even exist)?
Domestically, the idea that the Russian government was taking heroic measures to protect its citizenry from “COVID waves” is not supported by observable reality.
Instead, Moscow dutifully carried out policies that were dictated by its “trusted partners”—regardless of whether they had any “public health” benefit.
I will provide one glaring example.
Cattle-tags and compulsory injection decrees were enveloping the Earth in autumn 2021. In Russia, authorities understood such measures would be deeply unpopular.
In fact, there was a political element to consider: State Duma elections would be held from September 17-19, and imposing such deeply unpopular “public health” policies could provoke Russians to rush to the polls and vote for the Communists (who were vocally opposed to COVID tyranny).
On September 23, shortly before the results were announced, the IMF’s representative in Russia predicted that once the elections were over, Russia would start introducing compulsory vaccination decrees.
“There is no appetite [in Russia] for restrictive measures, lockdown, at least on the part of state authorities … After the parliamentary elections, perhaps a more unpopular measure, like mandatory vaccination, can be initiated as early as October-November,” the IMF’s Annette Kiobe told TASS.
As if by magic, Russia experienced a massive COVID “wave”, which of course compelled Russia’s regions to introduce “more unpopular measures”.
What are the chances?
Russia’s regions adopted compulsory vaccination decrees and QR codes en masse after the State Duma elections. By October 26, every region had imposed some form of compulsory vaccination, and by November 1, QR code systems (introduced at the regional level, but openly endorsed by the Kremlin) covered the entire country.
In mid-October, Russia’s federal government doubled-down on the need for mandatory vaccination—in fact, they appealed to the whole world to pursue these anti-human policies.
Speaking at the autumn session of IMF and World Bank summit on October 16, 2021, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Timur Maksimov told reporters:
Until all countries are vaccinated in the required proportion, the world will not return to the old normal. Therefore, the point was raised that it is necessary to increase efforts to produce and ensure access to vaccines. Without a solution to this issue, nothing will move, and it is difficult to predict what will happen, because more and more new waves of COVID cover different countries.
By the way: The Russian government’s creative use of “public health” data to achieve goals and targets predates COVID by almost a decade.
Before COVID even arrived, Russian health authorities were caught red-handed fabricating mortality data as part of a years-long “public health” hoax. In May 2012, regions had been ordered to reduce the number of cardiovascular-related deaths. They accomplished this by cooking their books.
The fraud was so massive that in October 2019, Dmitry Medvedev scolded regional governors for perpetuating a “lie in the truest sense of the word.”
Of course, the Health Ministry knew what was going on, but the regions ended up taking the blame—a very convenient political arrangement that was used to great effect during the “pandemic”.
Now I want to briefly address the claim that Russia needs draconian “public health” measures to protect itself from biothreats that are possibly seeping across the border from Ukraine, or other NATO-friendly states.
On December 10, 2021, the Russian Foreign ministry issued an eight-point list of demands to Washington and NATO. Moscow warned that failure to address these eight demands could lead to “military-technical” measures.
Not a single one of these demands makes even passing reference to biological threats.
There is not a single word about biothreats or biolabs in Putin’s fiery address on February 21, 2022.
The same is true of his speech broadcasted in early hours of February 24, 2022.
The narrative that Russia was facing imminent biological destruction if it hadn’t intervened in Ukraine appeared post facto—sorry, but those are the facts. I don’t know how you can argue biolabs in Ukraine were even a top five priority for Moscow, when it made no mention of them in the lead-up to its attack on February 24. If alleged biological agents in Ukraine posed a serious threat to Russia, it only occurred to Moscow after it sent tanks rolling towards Kiev. Which is a bit odd, if you think about it.
Yes, there are US-funded biological research facilities in Ukraine (Nuland admitted it), and yes, as a general rule, it’s unpleasant to have anything US-funded, and potentially dangerous, close to your border.
Let’s assume Ukraine is oozing with a manmade plague that only kills Russians (I don’t know how that’s even possible, and it also raises questions about the whole “Russians and Ukrainians are one people” narrative promoted by Moscow, but I digress): How exactly would not-fit-for-purpose PCR tests, and barely tested genetic injections, protect Russians from biological threats, real or imagined?
If these “public health” measures are ineffective (destructive, really) in the West, why would they work in Russia? That doesn’t make sense to me.
Any way you cut it, Russia’s “public health” measures (supported by the WHO, and apparently also the IMF?) don’t actually keep Russians safe.
Sadly, these measures have destroyed health.
An in-depth analysis published on July 4, 2022 by Russian outlet Nakanune concluded that the decision to limit or suspend routine medical care in order to “fight” COVID led to the deaths of at least 200,000 Russians:
The authorities held back [COVID], which had very little effect on the increase in mortality, leaving those who really needed it without planned medical care. This was the reason for the huge increase in mortality, at least 200,000 “extra” deaths.
We can now speak of this as a proven statistical fact.
Again, I’m just asking us to follow the facts.
The facts have been unpleasant, all over the world.
Russia is not a special case, unfortunately.
