Putin lies as the Nation Dies
Once again, instead of facing a dangerous threat to the health of the Russian people, the Putin regime’s only response is lies and coverup. Well, what else can we expect from a clan of proud KGB spies whose forefathers have liquidated far more Russians than any foreign enemy ever dared to dream of doing?
The Wall Street Journal reports:
A top Russian virologist’s charge that health authorities are drastically understating the number of cases of H1N1, or swine, flu — a claim that senior health officials fiercely rejected — has raised questions about Russia’s claims to be relatively unaffected by the pandemic. The controversy started late Sunday, when state television carried an interview with Dmitry Lvov, head of the government’s Institute of Virology, who reported what he said was Russia’s first death from H1N1 influenza, saying his institute had tested a sample from the victim. Dr. Lvov, one of the country’s most prominent health specialists, also said there were “tens of thousands” of H1N1 cases in Russia, far more than the 381 the government officially reports. In his TV interview, Dr. Lvov accused Dr. Onishchenko’s agency of trying to cover up the scale of the outbreak to conceal the failure of their efforts to keep it out of Russia. Dr. Onishchenko rejected those allegations.
Tens of thousands. Once again, just to be clear: Tens of thousands. And the government has reported what? 381.
The Journal continues:
A doctor answering a swine-flu hotline at the state-run Influenza Institute in St. Petersburg this week said, “There have been lethal cases of this flu in Russia. It couldn’t be otherwise; we’re not isolated from the world.” Officially, Russia is one of the few countries left in the world without a single H1N1 death.
381 infections and not one single fatality? Does anyone in his right mind believe this? How are these outrageous, utterly ridiculous lies any different from those told in Soviet times?
They are no different. The Kremlin, as always, cares only about its own power and nothing at all about the people it governs, whose lives it will sacrifice in any number for any end. And the Russian people richly deserve this treatment, since they stand mute while their government murders them in their thousands.
Little wonder, then, that Russia’s population is rapidly disappearing and it reamins one fo the most hopeless failures among the major nations of the world.
