President Putin BANS Mandatory Vaccinations in Russia: ‘We Are a Free Country’

President Vladimir Putin has declared that mandatory vaccinations will never be allowed because Russia is a free country and its people are sovereign.

“No one should be forced to get a jab. Pressure, where people may lose their jobs, is NOT acceptable,” Putin said during a recent speech.

Arabnews.com reports: Putin said Wednesday that some 23 million Russians had received the jab and said the country’s homegrown vaccines were better than foreign alternatives, naming AstraZeneca and Pfizer.

“We are doing fine,” he said.

The 68-year-old leader also addressed widespread vaccine skepticism in the country and urged Russians to listen to “specialists.”

“It is necessary to listen, not to people who understand little about this and spread rumors, but to specialists,” he told Russians, the majority of whom polls show oppose receiving coronavirus jabs.

Putin has in recent months urged Russians to get vaccinated and announced earlier this year he had got the jab, without specifying which one of the country’s four vaccines he had received.

On Wednesday he announced he was inoculated with Sputnik V, the first vaccine registered in Russia.

Officials have been accused of underreporting fatalities, counting only cases when coronavirus was found to be the primary cause of death after autopsy.

Authorities on Tuesday reported 652 coronavirus fatalities, topping a record that was set in December last year.

  1. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but
    I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very hard to
    set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Cheers

  2. La búsqueda del brillo es constante y harán lo que
    sea para conseguirlo. Es decir, la preocupación por su propia imagen o la búsqueda de
    reconocimiento tiene diferentes formas; unas más explicitas y otras
    más sutiles. Suelen anteponer las necesidades de los
    demás a las suyas propias, pero no sin esperar reconocimiento a cabio.
    Un éxito que muchas veces pasa por viejas ideas de reconocimiento extremo De
    hecho, la pasión típica por la vanidad del eneatipo tres,
    en el subtipo social se cambia por prestigio. Cuando el niño señala que
    ya lo ha hecho, el mago le dice el resultado del cálculo total.
    De hecho, en los conservación veremos la curiosa
    contra-vanidad que les hace merecedores del título
    de contra-número del tres. Sienten que si se reconocieran de verdad ante el mundo, les embargaría un gran vacío
    y se quedarían totalmente en pelotas. Este es el punto decisivo, en que,
    quizás de la mano de un buen terapeuta, toca saltar a ese vacío.
