The American edition considered coronavirus a challenge to Putin's system

107

An article has appeared in the American edition of Vox, which analyzes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Russian politics and economy and compares the prospects of our country with the crisis in the United States itself. But is the pandemic really so dangerous for the Russian socio-economic and political system?


American publicist Alex Ward believes that if a wave of the coronavirus pandemic covers Russia, it will be a disaster for the “Russian dictator,” as he calls President Putin. The disease and, especially, the death of thousands of Russians will be a serious blow to the political image of the head of the Russian state. At the same time, the American author notes that the situation is very unfavorable for Putin: the pandemic coincided with a collapse in prices on the world oil market.

Self-isolation measures, according to Ward, are tough, but not effective enough. In the spirit that is usual for the confrontation between powers, the American author distorts the truth: he writes that for violating the regime of self-isolation you can pay with imprisonment for up to 7 years, "forgetting" to note that such a punishment can be assigned only to those who have become infected as a result of quarantine violation and several people died.

However, the American author notes that Russia is better prepared for the epidemic than many countries of the world and recognizes the "good" Russian health system. However, Ward believes that Putin and the government focused on Moscow, where the truth is the largest, according to official figures, the number of cases, but almost not involved in the regions.

For all that, there is a certain truth in the words of the American. Unlike Moscow, the situation of many residents of the regions in conditions of monthly self-isolation can not only worsen, but become catastrophic. Salaries in the regions are much lower than in Moscow, the ability to change jobs is less by definition, no decisions on additional payments have been made.

Repeating tough measures for ensuring self-isolation of citizens after Sergei Sobyanin, the governors are not able to provide even the small social support organized by the Moscow mayor.

High fines, a lack of livelihoods, downsizing at enterprises, and the ruin of small businesses can be the real reason for the growth of social discontent, which catalyzes processes that are much more dangerous than the coronavirus pandemic, and it is politically dangerous.

What to live, for example, on a large stratum of unformed hired workers, of whom there are at least 20 million people in Russia? And do not think that these unformed workers are malicious tax evaders who are not specially formalized in order not to pay 13% of personal income tax. They simply do not draw up employers who are not profitable to pay both salaries and contributions to funds.

Therefore, the Russian government now really turned out to be between the “hammer and a hard place" of the coronavirus and social disturbance.

Since the country's population has shown political passivity in recent years and even decades, the authorities still believe that they can curb social discontent with police measures. But if relief is not made in the isolation mode, then the degree of dissatisfaction can be very high.

In any case, Russia, its economy and the social sphere will really require resuscitation measures. Already, it would not hurt the government and the president to start practicing real, not declared, social support for the population. As an option - to provide all citizens in need with social benefits in the amount of the minimum wage per person for the duration of the self-isolation regime, introduce subsistence benefits for unemployment in the first six months after the termination of the self-isolation regime, and provide real credit vacations.

Of course, this will require a redistribution of financial flows of the state, but if this is not done, then the consequences can be most dire. The solution of the problems that had arisen, together with the victory over the epidemic, would have allowed the Russian authorities and personally Vladimir Putin to repeatedly raise their authority both nationally and globally. But for this we must not be afraid to take responsibility.

        Wait, it’s not yet time to beat the timpani, and wear laurel wreaths. Now the incidence will take the harker of a real epidemic, and the fun will begin. And then it will become clear how many ventilation devices are actually in Russia, how many of them are workers, and where is the best medicine. In Russia or the USA.

      Once again, it is obvious that their writings / A \ rchuki do not know anything about Russia and write for those who do not know anything! Therefore, it rolls TAM from them, it does not look complete with \ P \ ny ... and here, to us, it is not interesting from the definition in any way.

      It is quite adequate. About 7 years only !? Most likely, they will give “Vasya from Uralmash”, who escaped from quarantine, for 6 years, the well-known “Racer” is unlikely to receive such a term, if only her friends with whom she recharged will not give her soul to God.

        I work in a clinic. I see everything in real life. We go home, take strokes and control isolated ones. Everything according to plan, no panic. Protective equipment available. We’ll hospitalize the hard ones. Everything is as usual. Just a huge request to everyone. LEAVE HOME. hi

          Take strokes and control isolated ones.
          Please, in more detail:
          Who is treating? Self-medication? As well as self-isolation? Or were they prescribed and left? Or did they hand out the medicine and explain how to drink it, and leave? Can you buy them in pharmacies?
          I have other information.

            It's very simple. You get sick and call a doctor at home. You are prescribed treatment (usually paracetamol to lower the temperature). If you suspect a virus, they take a smear and give it to the laboratory. When confirmed (pah, pah, pah), you are treated at home as with SARS: If you have an infection, you are listed and monitored daily. If the disease is mild, take another smear on day 10 and if everything is normal, fly with a white swan with immunity. If you feel unwell, call an ambulance and be hospitalized. us so everything happens ie, for other regions and cities can not say. hi

              You are the first to clarify what I should do. Because I am sick no more than 1 time in ten years. Pah, pah, pah!
              I have someone to buy paracetamol, and if a person lives alone, he will at least get a mask so that he doesn’t infect others, will he be allowed to go to the pharmacy or somehow?

                Here, in order that “Vasya from Uralmash” would not be given 7 years in the photo it is written that it is better to stay at home.

                  Something of “Vasya infected” who escaped from the house divorced quite a lot, but for some reason nothing was heard about the pre-trial detention center with a special regime, into which you should collect such Vas before checking the number of ordinary civilians infected with these “Vasya”, which should end in court meeting and relevant decision (if Vasya does not have time to die before this moment)

    And again, our American partners are trying to pass off wishful thinking. So far, they have more than 200 thousand infected and 10 thousand victims. And the vaunted American medicine can do nothing. According to American "democracy", the notorious cove can shy away harder than in any other country in the world.
    And no monopoly on the dollar printing press will help.

      let's not get ahead of ourselves ... domestic medicine with a one-time influx of citizens of this magnitude cannot do anything either ... and like any other ... well, maybe only the PRC has demonstrated the mass mobilization of medical teams, and given the spontaneity and the fact that they first - their results can be considered exemplary ...

          Hope, as usual, will die last (source Gazeta.ru from 06.04.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX):
          20 returned to the PRC from Russiaand the Chinese revealed a new type of coronavirus, authorities in the northern province of Heilongjiang said. All patients arrived in late March - early April. As a result, the number of people infected in the region doubled - 42 carriers of coronavirus are treated there. They arrived from Moscow to Vladivostok by plane, after which they crossed the land border with China by bus and private cars. The sick people - citizens of the PRC aged 23 to 61 years - were sent to specialized infectious diseases hospitals. They became infected in Russia.

          Hence the question. And where are the preventive measures? They also had to somehow identify when flying from Moscow, even at the airport? Or no? And how many people have they “gifted” during their stay in the Russian Federation? And where did they get infected? Publications write here what exactly in the Russian Federation.

          Well, also on this topic (source https://www.rosbalt.ru/posts/2020/04/06/1836730.html):
          USA. Tests made - 1 662 081, detected infected - 312 207. Or 5,3 tests for one infected.

          Spain. Tests were made - 355 091, infected were found - 130 759. Or 2,7 tests per infected.

          Italy. Tests were made - 657 224, infected were detected - 124 632 or 5,2 tests per infected.

          Germany. Tests were made - 918 460, infected were detected - 97 074. Or 9,4 tests per infected.

          France. Tests were made - 224 254, 97 074 were found infected. Or 2,3 tests per infected.

          Iran. 3,1 tests per infected person.

          United Kingdom. 4,06 tests per infected.

          Turkey. 6,7 tests for one infected.

          Switzerland. 7,4 tests per infected person.

          Belgium. 3,5 tests per infected person.

          Netherlands. 4,2 tests per infected person.

          Sweden. 5,4 tests per infected person.

          Russia. Tests were made - 697, infected were detected - 000. Or 5389 tests per infected.

          Or the sight went astray. Or such tests here. I have no other explanation for why it is like that.


          And yet (source RBC from 06.04.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX):
          wholesale trade in medical masks and other items on the list (with the exception of those that were issued before the entry into force of the government decree) is allowed only JSC "Corporation" Roskhimzashchita "(controlled by Rostec), appointed by the federal coordinating operator, and regional operators..
          «The original price for the products will be set by the manufacturer. Currently, Rostec enterprises, including Roskhimzashchita, produce a number of products from the list specified in the resolution - these are protective suits, masks, and respirators.
          But the market is huge, one manufacturer can’t master it. Therefore, there is no question of any monopolization of the market, there is enough space for everyone ”


          I do not understand why all manufacturers should be transferred for implementation through only one company. If Rostec (in the form of its enterprise) is able to produce a lot, then well, let it saturate the market and thereby reduce the price. And if not capable, then it resembles the Plato system, only already in medicine. Chemezov, not worse than the Rotenbergs?


          PS
          Our medicine retained part of Soviet centralization and, if necessary, probably too can somehow mobilize

          Source Gazeta.ru from 06.04.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX:
          The cost of the analysis for the detection of coronavirus infection at home will be 1250 rubles, additional medical staff will be paid. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the head of laboratory medicine at the Center for Molecular Diagnostics of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor Elena Tivanova.

              I don’t care whether you will do the test or not at all, the point is not at all in this. You wrote that our medicine resembles the PRC and Soviet. I showed you that the nifig does not resemble the PRC because the ill Chinese were identified only in China itself, and they traveled freely throughout the Russian Federation. Where are the measures against the spread ?!
              And the Soviet also does not resemble. The Soviet did not mean paid services, and even in the context of a mass pandemic, and even more so, what kind of paid services can we talk about? Or the state decided a little more on this and cut off the headstock ?!
              Well, the fact that you are in facts (the sources of information I brought), you see a panic, so this is a feature of your personal perception and nothing more. hi

                Paid services confuse you? But nothing that we have 30 years as capitalism? Nobody is obliged to give us anything for free, communism is over.
                The sick people were identified in China, yes, but where were they supposed to be identified, in Moscow or Vladivostok? The alarm was sounded when the virus became a reality, when it spread throughout the world, including and in Russia. Once the focus of the disease is China, it is completely natural that the first doctors to find it were Chinese. So far, our people have admitted that this virus is a real threat, while they have developed solutions to the fight, then yes ... how much time has passed. Normal process.
                My friend, here you can sit back and moan for an arbitrarily long time about the imperfections of Russia in general and Russian health care in particular, but absolutely all countries have managed and were not ready for the new virus. Even a rich and prosperous Europe managed in full. So what to talk about us, the poor and the wretched)))
                In general, brace yourself and hope that the disease passes by you. Health to you and your loved ones.

        In particular, Peskov announced the testing of everyone who meets with the Russian president.

        Answering the question whether the president is in a regime of self-isolation, Peskov recalled that the day before the president arrived in the Kremlin to hold a meeting on the development of the Far East. According to the spokesperson, the president continues to meet with a small number of people.

        "Those who participate in these meetings undergo a thorough medical examination and are tested, and in advance," Peskov said.

        He added that, as a rule, we are talking about people who take special precautions in terms of the regime of self-isolation despite the working regime.

        Journalists also noticed that the personnel from the meeting show that the president shakes hands.

        Peskov replied that the participants in the meeting had been carefully checked, so "in this case, the president reserves the right to adhere to the usual rules of greeting, which are considered appropriate for him."

        Peskov also said that Putin passes the coronavirus test as often as his doctor considers appropriate.

        The spokesman added that the test report was not known to him in detail.


        That is, even Peskov himself does not pass any tests ..

    The American edition considered coronavirus a challenge to Putin's system

    American media is for Americans ... fool
    A pandemic of the media began to gain momentum in the world, looking for the origins of the coronavirus and those responsible for its spread. If Russia challenges the West in that it has “approached” the borders of NATO, why not admit that it is Putin’s system that should be the target of a major coronavirus attack.
    We are in a hurry to upset you, dear "members" and "circles" of the fun edition of Vox, for the demented.
    Coronavirus showed the inability of the civilized world in its existing organization to confront a serious threat. And Russia with the system that has developed in it is not in the best situation to talk about unaffected state and constitutional principles and order. Forced measures, but it was precisely the government that was poorly prepared for the threats of mass infection.
    You need to think and think hard. This is a virus, and there are also different parasites, or even worse, ticks. And with the complete extinction of bees, which just die as a result of the "mass appearance of ticks," humanity will be measured out several years of life.
    So is it worth ignoring the challenges of nature for the sake of satisfying one's own needs (and what ???) and a whim, to be higher than the bulk of the population, in order to simply die within the walls of his mansion, waiting for death as deliverance?

    governors are not able to provide even the small social support organized by the Moscow mayor

    It is very interesting to me and what kind of social support did the Reindeer Herder provide to Muscovites? 2 thousand people over 65? The second then, 2 thousand, received not all over 65. Meanwhile, in USA: payment of medical insurance, one-time payments to those whose income is not higher than $ 75 thousand per year - at 1200 bucks per adult and by 500 per child. Even impoverished Greece: one-time allowance 800 Euro. For each child - 90 euros for food between March 11 and May 4 as an alternative to school meals. The state pays for medical insurance and pays 60% rental housing - if this is the only person housing.

You tell employers this, you will laugh at your dreams for a long time. As soon as the weekly quarantine was announced, as if not half of the employers forced the workers to write a letter of leave without maintenance. Others warned of a big cut after this whistle. Many have already been working since Monday, and they wanted to spit on all the government’s announcements, one condition is either working, or goodbye.

                The conversation was actually about the States, not about me.
                Well, what do you answer the comment. That my wife is a medic and she is now at work for 10 - 12 hours, every day. And she better understands, in all this mess, what is necessary for her beloved husband.

    At VO there was a rotation of personnel ?! Articles have recently been distinguished by their hysteria and alarmism. Throw out this liberalist!

    VOx and VO are twins / brothers? laughing

    It was necessary to write “mode” in the heading of the article instead of “system” and a touching unity would be obtained.

    For fun, he opened the New York Times in English. They don’t write a damn about Russia, even upset. And here on the branch there is a direct resonance to the letter of the writer’s scribbler. Here, read about this bunch of Vox and everything will become clear.

      The editor-in-chief of the VOX web portal is Jew Ezra Klein, a notorious liberal, Russophobe and Israeli lobbyist in the United States.

      Much more relevant would be an article on the contribution of the Jewish community of New York, other American megacities and refugees from Israel to fueling the US coronavirus epidemic by demonstratively refusing to comply with quarantine requirements.

    "the governors are not able to provide even the small social support organized by the Moscow mayor"

    And the governors of a weakly shaking shame ??? so as a governor, so once a millionaire !!! If each governor shared something with his own, they would have said thanks to him, and noted at the top, well, conscious !!!

      Dear, I'm too lazy to look in youtube for a woman regionalist in the Federation Council ... you can find it yourself. See if interested. In short, her words: “Moscow eats away all the funds, namely 25% of all the money allocated to the regions! . Therefore, the forest is cut mercilessly in the Central Federal District !!! Governors have no money! Spin, HOW NOW, as they can. Before the elections to the Duma or the elections, you yourself know who they are throwing handouts if the "plan is completed" and that’s all !!! Yes, there are those who fill their pockets from the crumbs of their regions. Someone is stirring up his business. Etc. But it was precisely the tip that brought to such a life. Stereotype and standard damn. I have a mayor in the tail, and in the mane for the road, for medicine. What will he do? Enterprises are all bankrupt. Shops remained, but a couple of sewing workshops. From whom to take it, and from it still the center sucks. So it’s not so simple. He complains to the governor, and he throws up his hands that there is no money. The center allocated 45 million rubles to us for infrastructure development !!! I have five architecture in the city of monuments, offhand. They need to be restored. Now the mayor is sitting and thinking where to put this huge money. Schools are falling, gardens are closing due to emergency conditions.

          it has become the new "ethical norm" in the ruling circles. And I'm not saying that this is not.

    High fines, a lack of livelihoods, downsizing at enterprises, and the ruin of small businesses can be the real reason for the growth of social discontent, which catalyzes processes that are much more dangerous than the coronavirus pandemic, and it is politically dangerous.

    Well, everything, trailed training manuals from the "Israeli patriots"

    In a hurry, we must be in time for May, for in May special equipment will appear (masks, respirators, antiseptics), there will be special clothing for people working with infected people, 16 medical centers across the country will be built by May 15.
    Express tests are being created and are being tested and they determine with accuracy 94% of infected. Several vaccines are undergoing clinical trials at once, a treatment strategy for the most seriously ill patients has been developed.
    And much much more - which will begin to appear as early as the month of May.

    That is why Russophobes of all stripes (taking the opportunity - April is the hardest month) are already almost open bully attack our country.
    They feel that they will soon end, therefore they go all-in and show themselves.
    But by the summer they will be responsible for everything done.
