The woman tried to get on an intercity bus on the Kumertau – Ufa line, without documents confirming that she had been vaccinated. At the same time, she ignored the repeated demands of the station workers and law enforcement officers to leave the bus, thereby delaying the departure of public transport, the department reports.

I wonder if the Comrade of Alabama, who has since gone all but quiet on everything COVID, but who in early 2020 was promising apocalypse for anyone who did not lock down with utmost severity including kidnapping COVID-positive children from their parents, is going to send a letter to the Russian mercenary cops congratulating them on work well done in brutalizing and humiliating elderly citizens?
Or perhaps it is going to be the early “COVID believer” Saker, who has interrupted his 18-month moratorium and ban on discussing anything related to COVID fascism, in order to publish and promote wishy-washy BS on how in Russia the government and the people are ultimately joined in a common struggle against the virus, marked by mutual trust:
Street revolts are not happening in Russia. This is not happening in China. There are relatively few ZoneB countries where this is happening and the main difference is the cohesion of citizen and state. Where there is no cohesion, there is break-down. Western governments have proven themselves to be enemies of their citizens.
The second main difference simply is trust.
Here is the most spectacular difference. The western countries started fighting their people. How dare they be susceptible to a virus but oh boy, what a crisis capitalism opportunity this is.
The other ¾ of the world started fighting a virus and supporting their people.
Utterly hilarious and laughable stuff and downright criminal to peddle it. There is plenty of revolt in Russia, it just doesn’t take the form of street protest. What else is one of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe, but a form of revolt against the state religion of COVID mind disease?
Russia isn’t a place that is marked by a high level of popular trust in the government, but a place that is marked by an extraordinarily high level of cynicism for the government and the state. The level is so high that it spills into government offices themselves and the police force which is itself jaded and cynical. The real reason Russia isn’t a fully-blown COVID-Stalinist hellhole is that its own police force does not truly buy into the cretinisms of the COVID sacrificial cult that Saker subscribes to, but are only enforcing it in a lazy and mercenary fashion just sufficient to protect their paychecks. Such a hypocritical police force and bureaucracy do not allow the high leadership to wage an effective war against the populace in practice, but such a war definitely already exists on the books, and will only be ramped up in the coming winter months. (Saint Petersburg just announced a QR-code regime that doesn’t accept negative tests.)
As it escalates we will be on the side of Russian grandmas and the Russian people. Will Saker? Or will he stay true to form and keep mum, only to interrupt his silence here and there to pontificate from his restriction-free, DeSantis-run Florida on how the COVID Faucism in Russia really isn’t all that bad, and how the people, “albeit grumbling”, largely accept it anyway and find it for the best?
Here is a video of a different Russian granny who last month defied a different kind of bandit:
You know what is sad? The elderly woman who bravely resisted the mugger was ultimately assisted by a passerby, but the courageous woman who stood up to the Russian COVID Rouge was then repressed by the police.
However, even the brave Moscow grandma will now find herself in house arrest if she is one of the two-thirds of the over 60s who want none of the jab Putin is peddling and remain unvaccinated.
As Putin has instructed his Spokesman to signal, but is too cowardly to be heard saying himself:
“All measures are good. Any measures that can encourage more people to get vaccinated are good.”
So three hurrays for the Russian police! Without them who would drag unvaccinated Russian grandmas from intercity buses? They should expect a medal in the mail from Putin shortly for a job well done in “encouraging more people to get vaccinated”. Next, tune in for the cops arresting an unvaccinated grandpa for walking a dog farther than 100 meters from his towerblock, or having the guile to get his groceries in a store that is only the 2nd closest to his towerblock entrance.
Anything to not have to get an actually honorable job. Then again, in a QR-coded, lockdown realm it’s better for you that you don’t.
