87% of Russians Do Not Want Vaccine in Their Body so the Government Will Extort Them to Get It Anyway

Gov't spokesman explains the coercion is really their fault because they didn't take it voluntarily when they had the chance

The Covid vaccine in Russia is free and has been widely available for six months now.

Despite that only 13% of the population has availed themselves of this ‘generous’ offer to get themselves injected with a substance invented less than one year ago, free-of-charge.

This is indication enough that the vast majority of the remaining 87% do not want the substance in their body until more is known about it.

The government considers that a problem because with a viral infection running around that for most age groups is less deadly than the flu, that causes no or mild symptoms for 95% of those it infects, and that leaves 99.8% of the infected alive, you just can’t have people deciding for themselves if they want a certain substance in their body or not.

Correction. The government likes the idea of free choice just fine, but when people make the ‘wrong’ choice the government has no choice but to step in and correct the decision of the people for them. Putin’s spokesman, Peskov, explains:

“The principle of vaccination not being obligatory generally remains, but we are not very active in getting vaccinated,” Peskov said.

So “the principle of vaccination not being obligatory generally remains,” with “generally” meaning “not always”. So then translated from slime-speak, “the principle remains until we decide it doesn’t.”

And what might ‘compel’ the authorities to decide this principle they really, really like does not in fact exist? Well, it is if the people exercise it in the wrong way and pick not to get the substance made available to them. Especially if they do so en masse, for example, if 87% chose not to avail themselves of the substance. Here, read Peskov’s words:

“we’ve got a great vaccine, we have the vaccination infrastructure considering our widespread geography. But we fail to do it to the necessary extent. So I consider such emergency measures absolutely necessary and justified”.

Yupp, that’s right. When the substance is that unpopular and people reject it to such a degree then the principle of voluntary vaccination no longer applies. When the people fail to do it “to the necessary extent” they lose the right to voluntary vaccination and “emergency measures” become “absolutely necessary and justified.”

You might have thought that when a vaccine is that unpopular the principle of voluntary vaccination is more important than ever so you’ll be glad for Peskov setting you straight.

You might also want to go on a bank-robbing spree and when you are caught use the “Peskov defence.” Explain that the banks were presented with the chance to give you money voluntarily but when not enough of them did, it became necessary for you to rob them. I hear it works every time.

marjovic lies
polls vary—one 42% reject sputnik
other polls ask if they want it, not if they oppose mandatory vaccine

If the Russians really were open to the vaccine, the authorities wouldn’t have to force them to take it now would they?

either you are intentionally stupid or worse—or you cannot read your own language
targeted requirements for identified occupations in Moscow conflate to all Russians for you

Coming from someone who doesn’t know the value of vitamin D to the immune system, I will take that as a compliment nitwit.

Lies? Perhaps a bit harsh. Interpretations of words alone and words making
sentences may vary from timing, location and every other input. Maybe give
Marko some leeway??

he lies—conflates Moscow with entire Russia–provides false data—only identified occupations inMoscow relevant as an alternative to a lockdown
no different from typical anglophone media

Just because the West has to do it, shouldn’t mean that the East needs to do it.That sounds too much like a one world government monopoly. The elderly Russians will have no problem with it but the younger ones will say Nyet. And I don’t see the young moms and dads letting anyone touch their kids with any vaxes except the normal ones they take prior to school, which hasn’t hurt any one. This should be an interesting fight.

That is exactly what it is.
Look up all the countries that submitted themselves To the false pandemic and subsequent lock downs.
They were all commanded from the same center, they all obeyed, it’s almost the entire world.

ya, the Who seems to have everyone by the balls but then again the Russian Gov should be telling their people – what’s really going on.

Peskov words are just that…words! The truth is, in Russia, they are doing the exact same thing as most western nations are pushing. Mandatory jabs for service workers …not the entire population!

AP, yesterday: “The Kremlin has repeatedly rejected the idea of ordering mandatory vaccinations nationwide.” End of conversation!

Get your facts straight!

Dumb ass Russians were owned by the Communists for 70 years. No one had more slogans than the Soviets did.
