While so-called “free” and “democratic” nations pushing for vaccine passports are spending billions to get the public to take the COVID shot, Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated his stance on mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations last Wednesday that his government will not force his citizens to take the jab.  

“I want to state my position again,” Putin said, before claiming Russia’s “Sputnik V” vaccine is the safest. “I think that mandatory vaccination isn’t appropriate and can’t be introduced.”

He said it is up to the citizens to realize the need for the jab and understand that without the vaccination, they could face “serious or even mortal danger.” He said it is “counterproductive and unnecessary to introduce mandatory vaccinations.”

Russia has 144.4 million people, and 11.8 percent of its population is fully vaccinated, which amounts to 8.2 percent. Russia was the first country to approve its vaccine for public use. Putin said,

“I would like to emphasize once again and to appeal to all our citizens: think carefully, keep in mind that the Russian vaccine—the practice has really shown that millions (of people) have used it—is currently the most reliable and the safest. All conditions for vaccination have been created in our country.”

TRENDPOST: Russians have been hesitant to take the shot. Moscow, a city of 12 million, has 1.3 million vaccinated. 

“We were the first major city in the world to announce the start of mass vaccination. And what? The percentage of vaccinated people in Moscow is less than in any European city. In some cases, several times over,” Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.

    Karl Marxist stated that Communism/ Capitalism both swing slowly over time like a pendulum.

    Our beautiful so called capitalism system is becoming closer to communism.

    The Russian people have grown up with tyranny and now they have more freedoms so they can spot it from a mile away. Their leaders know this too and will not force this on them. We who have grown up with massive freedoms cannot even see the bull with wings that flies over us and shits on our heads!

      Well stated. Shows how 80+ years of no freedom has led the Russians to appreciate FREEDOM. Americans have been brainwashed by TV, media, and our wonderful college/university professors who live in a cocoon believing their communistic fantasies are real. Mis-educated jackasses.
