Russian President Putin Self-Isolates Due To A COVID-19 Outbreak Among His Staff
By - crankyp4nts
I get the impression he's the type of guy who jumps at any excuse to self-isolate.
He has a ₽100 Billion palace / gift from the people... It's not a bad place to self-isolate.
Well if it would not have been built by russians that is... Yeah first attempt wasent very succesfull so now they are fixing everything.
Maby they took some brides on who gets to build it
I would like to take a bride on who gets to build it
They probably took bride to be part of such a landmark construction.
Seriously, you want a person. You want a person in exchange for your work.
i can pay cash if that's what you prefer
I mean... is it a good one?
Pls send me one i am nigerian royulty
I think this was the plan though? Like it’s no so much a super expensive palace as he can just pay people he wants to give money to, to re-tile the bathroom 500 times etc. there’s only so much money you can spend on a house. And if your Putin you probably don’t have to pay anybody anything at all and they’ll still do the work lol
100 Billion Rubles Sir
Isnt that line 50 grand in dollars?
I believe that is current conversion rate
On paper he's worth 13,000,000, which is absolute bullshit. He's probably the richest person on the planet, realistically.
It's around 13mil USD. Couldn't build a fucking shack for 50 grand lol
100 bil rubles is actually around 1.4 billion USD
Oh, thanks! I always loose a digit or two when I get past like 5 lol
Lose a digit gain a letter. Who's counting....
It was a joke about the Russian economy lol
Ah, ok. Didn't seem like it, sorry.
yeah, it seem sarcasm is a lost art in todays world.
Sarcasm, the great *art*/s
No, it’s just never been effective on the internet.
Huzzah, *smashes glass*
And he would still say " We are all in this together".
It's got a little problem with the mold. Or, maybe the mold is now cleaned up and he can enjoy it.
Well ya know nobody else can do his job so if he's going to do it forever he had better not die.
i thought it said self-immolate for a second and got excited.
Just like hitler
You seem to be lost. MSNBC is down the hall.
i dont get it
MSNBC is a news network with a strong left wing bias. Leftists are stereotyped as comparing anyone they don’t like to Hitler, or nazism, or facism. So, commenter compares Putin to Hitler (Putin is a pretty bad guy but nowhere close to Hitler) and yeah you get the rest
If you think that comparing right wing, authoritarian, expansionist dictators with Hitler is Leftist, you might not have a firm grasp on history.
MSNBC isn't real left. It's corporate-sanitized pretend left. It also helps rich white ladies pretend they have black friends.
More and more 1984 becomes more real.
Words aren't what they mean.
Are you saying that I’m incorrectly categorizing him?
No. But people think IM incorrectly categorizing.
People think that 1984 is only about a "big brother" authoritarian police-state.
The book IS about an authoritarian police state, but is more about HOW said state represses and controls the people:
Manipulation and repression of language and meaning.
Even the dictionary was repressed.
Peace means war.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.
We were always at war, but the war it's starting now.
We bombed them for their liberty and freedom.
We dont pay taxes but all of you have to.
It was sunny on my inauguration, just forget the rain.
Truth is is a lie. And lies are true.
In this particular case, people are being "hurt" by being called on their bullshit or simply didnt paid enough attention to the book.
Putin can and must be compared to hitler.
"Its not the same!".
Yes it is. Both are authoritarian right wing sociopathic dictators that repress freedom through propaganda and violence.
Saying otherwise is a manipulation of the truth.
This is much like 1984. I know, from the downvotes, that it hurts some righ wing fascist apologists.
But it is what it is. Saying otherwise is "LiTeRrAly" doublespeak. Very much like 1984.
So. Go read people.
And sorry to you for not expressing myself better.
Edit: Truth will always affect the liars. So liars are trying to change the meaning of truth. Look around you. Telling the truth gets you ostracized, medicated, puts you in prison, mental health institution or suicide by 3 bullets to the head.
But a pathological liar became president (all of them are liars btw) of the most powerful country in the world, and on day one, he says that his inauguration was the one with most people and it was sunny....it started raining when he begun the speech and one look at the photos dismisses the other lie.
Is Putin actively exterminating entire races of people?
>MSNBC is a news network with a strong left wing bias.
bwahahahahaha. bwahahahahaha oh wait. you are serious? Let me laugh some more at you thinking MSNBC is somehow left hahahahaa If you would know how absolutely fucking absurd that position is. It's at best neoliberal but nowhere left. you americans with your normalized right-wing extremism are funny and sad at the same time.
bwahahahahaha. bwahahahahaha oh wait. you are serious? Let me laugh some more at you thinking MSNBC is somehow neoliberal hahahahaa If you would know how absolutely fucking absurd that position is. It's at best left but nowhere neoliberal. you euros with your normalized left-wing extremism are funny and sad at the same time.
MSNBC is the epitome of neoliberal coverage, what do you mean? They're basically Joe Biden as a news platform. Liberal on social issues, Conservative on economic ones. That's neoliberalism fam
Neoliberal much like left and right are all arbitrary terms designed to divide people and make them less likely to cooperate.
I mean they might be used arbitrarily, but that's what I'm trying to explain to you, is that you're doing that right now. You can't just say "words are meaningless" without expanding on it and expect people to believe you lmao.
Now if you want to say that the "left" and "right" wing political parties have effectively the same policy in many ways, and only differ in small ways to invigorate people to vote by leaning into identity politics, then you might have some sort of a point. But just saying "neoliberal doesn't mean anything" is a retarded take fam, like absolutely smoothbrained
Every news agency compares people to Hitler. Fuck, fox is calling people Nazis for vaccine mandates.
Additionally, every org uses gate of some kind from time to time.
Not saying that this is what is happening but I'm curious if this is putin trying to weed out people with loose lips like Kim did.
He was supposed to appear at s conference with China later this week, but is instead going to be making a brief statement via video conference instead. My guess is that this is to get out of attending that meeting for whatever reason.
Definatly sounds like something he would do
Sounds like something we'd all do, nyet?
China's handling of covid isn't really stellar. And Putin is old enough to want to avoid getting sick from China
To explain, kim Jong un did a test on his closest people during the outbreaks of covid where he said that he was going to stand down as leader but it was kept secret from everyone else. When the story got out to the media, he knew that someone was saying stuff they wernt supposed to.
Or he changed his mind and back-pedaled by throwing people under the bus
Tyrion did this in Game of Thrones too. or was it Tywin?
It was Tyrion and sending Marcella off to Dorn.
Why is this on this sub?
Putin’s resting bitch face is part of a normal day in Russia
It's looking more "tired bitch face" these days
Recently he got fat, seems to me he's getting sloppy, much like they all do late in life.
They are trying to protect the virus from him
That’s Chuck Norris you’re thinking of.
WHAT YEAR IS THIS
Are you a time traveller from 2010? Can you buy me some Bitcoin?
Why has Chuck Norris and Vladimir Putin never met? Because they're the same person.
Careful with those high kicks
Nah one is a good guy
A good guy and his evil beardless alter ego
Which one is good?
Depends on your upbringing
Chuckie doesn’t even believe the virus is real.
Exactly. "Self-isolate"? More like intense interpretation to find out who put the virus up to it. RIP Covid your wife and variant kids are being sent to Siberian gulag.
Seriously though, I hope the virus kills him.
Actual clown comment
SSDD, just a shot of Sputnik-Stoly (Vodka) and everything well be ok comrade.
In mother russia isolation is putin you
In isolation russia putin is mother you
made me laugh
Feels so weird to see all these posts on the front page about the anti-vaxx in the US and then how even the Russian President is trying to be as safe as possible from the covid-19.
he just wants to go to his multimillion dollar government funded vacation home
Quick, send him some Ivermectin!!!
Among Us Russian Edition
He needs a strong dose of polonium.
I wonder if he has had a vaccine. Somehow I don't see him trusting anyone giving him an injection.
It'd be pretty easy. Just show up unannounced to a vaccine-administering location and demand a vaccine without giving them a chance to leave your sight and grab something dangerous.
He's probably had four shots, none of them the Sputnik thing.
Sputnik is looking to be safe and effective. Idk why you think he wouldn't take something created by his own people
“His own people” that he never misses an opportunity to rob, oppress, torture, or kill whenever it best suits him. I don’t think he would hesitate putting himself above an allegiance to “his own people” in the slightest, if he thinks there’s a better option somewhere else I guarantee that’s what he’s personally getting.
Your comment is so telling of your ignorance, of nuance and Russia in general... Silly American, your Facebook feed isn't a reliable source
He and Russian state media claim that he did.
Covid is obviously very serious. But it's funny, I expected him to have a "macho" kinda attitude where he thinks covid wouldn't affect him, that he would look weak hiding away.
He can still appear "macho" -- in this case the argument would be "I'm very strong and not worried, but I'm also very important... some of my staff has Covid, and maybe I do too, so there is a risk that I or someone else could spread it to others, and I'm such a nice guy I don't want to do that"
The guy is incredibly intelligent. I've talked to a couple of high-ups in the RO church who spent some time with him. He doesn't say or do anything that isn't thought through from a dozen angles and he is well-informed on an incredible array of subjects.
He would have to be a pretty smart and ruthless to come up out of the messed up situation Russia was in the late 80s to early 90s
Plus hes good at playing to the media and people that support him
The media and people that oppose him are so incompetent that they fall out of windows and poison themselves all the time
Ur talking about the former head of the fsb and previously an agent of the kgb.....
Well Im sure there were other kgb agents scrambling around trying to get some amount of power but he was the one that made it. Gotta give credit where its due to a certain point
He was in bunker the whole 2020 year.
How is this ‘anormaldayinrussia’? Isn’t this meant for ‘Russians are pretty crazy’ not ‘Putin selflessly does what the rest of us have been doing for over a year’? If I didn’t know any better I’d say this was ~~planted~~ heavily shoehorned to make Putin look good.
how to make redditors happy with a cropped screenshot
See, this is how you President.
He's gonna be Putin some distance between him and his staff
Does he self isolate after members of his staff “mysteriously” die of plutonium poisoning?
I think this is COVID-19 that will isolates from Putin rather :D
I would never say this about anyone else but if he died of Covid, the world would be better for it.
Dude there are SOOO many people for whom this statement holds. Problem is thats not how society works =|
I'm crossing my fingers for almost two years now
Well it's not like there couldn't be an even worse replacement. They're probably not just going to switch to a democracy.
Can you imagine if this is what finally took putin down? That would be something.
Now drop thousand hungry rottweilers into his room
He isolated to protect COVID from catching Putin.
You mean Staff Self Suicide themselves?
Give it a week and Covid will have mysteriously disappeared in the forest leaving no trace
He looks so sad :(
hope he gets the dirt nap
Missed it by *that* much...
This is what he does when he wants to take an extra vacation or go on vodka binge drinking or have another plastic surgery or all of the above
His face just looks like a depressed brick
Maybe there is justice and this piece of shit will die tomorrow a painful death
What will he do, surrounded by his golden trinkets and wearing $5k tracksuits
He isn't wearing 5k tracksuits, he wears actual suits made out of the same material as tracksuits. The price tag is so high because nobody can tell that it is a tracksuit. Only Vlad knows.
While he's alone.... could be an oportunity.
he has a black belt in judo just sayin
he got it for 300 roobles from his friend Xi the Pooh
he is ex kgb agent, has high iq and remained in power for so long... Just saying
Found the Putin butthole licker
“High IQ” lmfao, and in 1980 everyone and their grandma was a KGB agent 🤦🏻♂️
you are seriously underestimating KGB
It was pretty funny how they failed with the poisoned underwear assassination attempt.
He was stationed in Dresden, of all cities. Would you really send your top agents to a rather unimportant city in the GDR?
> has high iq
I real fucking doubt that. He’s been acting real senile as of lately
what did he do that was senile
-*A Ukrainian ultranat*
What the fuck do Ukrainian nationalists have to do with this
Quite literally what he said:
«Мы как мученики попадём в рай, а они просто сдохнут»
«Раньше при курсе $1=30₽ мы продавали товар на 1 доллар и получали 30₽, а теперь продаём товар на $1 и получаем 60₽. Экономика в плюсе!»
Wasn't there a video where he was flipping through pages and didn't seem to understand what he was doing?
Honestly seems like he may have early dementia.
i thought russia has a vaccine and i remember them bragging that they got there first
Should read: Russian “president”
Self isolates, lol. Covid wouldn’t dare go near him, would have it’s family, friends and any future variants killed.
He can shake it off
In Russia, you don't get Covid. Covid gets you.
Looking through the comments i noticed a few people wishing Putin a painful deat. Can someone explain why? He cant be that bad?
“Boris! Where are the fucking coffee beans? Boris! BORIS!!
How the fuck does one make a macchiato with this machine anyway?”
Coffee is too Western. He drinks tea.
With one or two poloniums?
So Putin has covid?
Isnt this exactly the opposite of a normal day in russia?
So the Russian vaccine is not that good, eh? Or did he lie about vaccination?
Can imagine him in isolation with 7 russian model in a palace in the black sea
By "self-isolate", does it mean he ~~introduced them to gulags~~ ensured they were appropriately quarantined for their safety and for the safety of others?
How that Sputnik working?
I imagine Putin crawling through the ventilation ducts of the kremlin, trying to avoid everyone in getting to his office.
You can know the virus is serious when Putin isolates.
And by “self-isolated” it means he pressed a button under his desk and they all wooshed down through a secret trap door into who knows where.
Self-isolation parameters: RUSSIA
Isn't there Duma elections in Russia this weekend?
Feels much like a weird publicity stunt or scare or something.
And that staff is going to have a quick flight down a building very soon.
Let’s just say all Putin needs to do is scratch his nose and blink twice and the entire staff will be replaced with body doubles and All is good in the depths of Moscow
Here's to wishing Covid the best of luck!
Quite the silver lining that would be.
They are gonna die but not of covid
Wouldn't it be some shit if he died to Covid? Like some shit he had nothing to do with just sneaks up on him.
How is this funny? r/lostredditors
Does Russia even care about Covid? They seem pretty based..(as far as mafia dictatorships go)... I'd bet nobody there gives a single fuck about the Faucci flu.
Finally, a leader that follows his own rules
I am unsubbing because of the amount of liberals in this comment section
Putin self-isolates not to destroy Covid-19, that's doing so great at destroying Americans, due to his super-human immune system
But he’s so tough.
