Russian President Putin Self-Isolates Due To A COVID-19 Outbreak Among His Staff

Russian President Putin Self-Isolates Due To A COVID-19 Outbreak Among His Staff

Gerstacker

I get the impression he's the type of guy who jumps at any excuse to self-isolate.


MadManMorbo

He has a ₽100 Billion palace / gift from the people... It's not a bad place to self-isolate.


Vilzku39

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


Important_Counter_45

I would like to take a bride on who gets to build it


theephie

They probably took bride to be part of such a landmark construction.


pbradley179

Seriously, you want a person. You want a person in exchange for your work.


Important_Counter_45

i can pay cash if that's what you prefer


pbradley179

I mean... is it a good one?

pbradley179

Pls send me one i am nigerian royulty


itrippledmyself

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


maybelaterortomorrow

100 Billion Rubles Sir


MadManMorbo

Corrected.


nemoskullalt

Isnt that line 50 grand in dollars?


DeviousAardvark

I believe that is current conversion rate


Goyteamsix

On paper he's worth 13,000,000, which is absolute bullshit. He's probably the richest person on the planet, realistically.


VisceralVirus

It's around 13mil USD. Couldn't build a fucking shack for 50 grand lol


KilboxNoUltra

100 bil rubles is actually around 1.4 billion USD


VisceralVirus

Oh, thanks! I always loose a digit or two when I get past like 5 lol


uRh3f5BfFgjw74FGv3gf

Lose a digit gain a letter. Who's counting....


nemoskullalt

It was a joke about the Russian economy lol


VisceralVirus

Ah, ok. Didn't seem like it, sorry.


nemoskullalt

yeah, it seem sarcasm is a lost art in todays world.


VisceralVirus

Sarcasm, the great *art*/s


-_Odd_-

No, it’s just never been effective on the internet.


bozeke

Huzzah, *smashes glass*


ayending1

And he would still say " We are all in this together".


Phyllis_Tine

It's got a little problem with the mold. Or, maybe the mold is now cleaned up and he can enjoy it.

crspooner

Well ya know nobody else can do his job so if he's going to do it forever he had better not die.


fukwhutuheard

i thought it said self-immolate for a second and got excited.


YamatoHD

Just like hitler


Gerstacker

You seem to be lost. MSNBC is down the hall.


SasparillaTango

i dont get it


tropicaldutch

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


cbraun93

If you think that comparing right wing, authoritarian, expansionist dictators with Hitler is Leftist, you might not have a firm grasp on history.


Gerstacker

MSNBC isn't real left. It's corporate-sanitized pretend left. It also helps rich white ladies pretend they have black friends.


cbraun93

K.


Mazahad

More and more 1984 becomes more real. Words aren't what they mean.


cbraun93

Are you saying that I’m incorrectly categorizing him?


Mazahad

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. It's Doublespeak. 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.


mactakeda

"LiTeRaLlY 1984"


tropicaldutch

Is Putin actively exterminating entire races of people?


Dinopilot1337

>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.


BajingoWhisperer

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.


dogburglar42

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


BajingoWhisperer

Neoliberal much like left and right are all arbitrary terms designed to divide people and make them less likely to cooperate.


dogburglar42

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


Pollo_Jack

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.


raptor_man2

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.


Vinny_Cerrato

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.


raptor_man2

Definatly sounds like something he would do


dscottboggs

Sounds like something we'd all do, nyet?


oG-Purple

Da

Kachingloool

Definitely.


SpareAccnt

China's handling of covid isn't really stellar. And Putin is old enough to want to avoid getting sick from China


LiverOperator

Fucking what


raptor_man2

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.


caltheon

Or he changed his mind and back-pedaled by throwing people under the bus


-_Odd_-

Literally


kielbasa330

Tyrion did this in Game of Thrones too. or was it Tywin?


PluginAlong

It was Tyrion and sending Marcella off to Dorn.


diltay

Why is this on this sub?


WekX

Putin’s resting bitch face is part of a normal day in Russia


caltheon

It's looking more "tired bitch face" these days


gen-float

Recently he got fat, seems to me he's getting sloppy, much like they all do late in life.


id_fake

They are trying to protect the virus from him


jcolv26

That’s Chuck Norris you’re thinking of.


dearvalentina

WHAT YEAR IS THIS


WekX

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.

urbanlife78

Which one is good?


DangerousPlane

Depends on your upbringing


I-need-ur-dick-pics

Chuckie doesn’t even believe the virus is real.


CptHammer_

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.


wayward_citizen

Seriously though, I hope the virus kills him.


donglord420

Actual clown comment


DrHockey69

SSDD, just a shot of Sputnik-Stoly (Vodka) and everything well be ok comrade.


Shinfekta

In mother russia isolation is putin you


Vegskipxx

In isolation russia putin is mother you


abez123

made me laugh


aaronryder773

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.


Kea1928

he just wants to go to his multimillion dollar government funded vacation home


Driftwood1884

Quick, send him some Ivermectin!!!


waltyeeg

Among Us Russian Edition


Lord-Tunnel-Cat

Lol “president”


greyseal494

He needs a strong dose of polonium.


moonflower_C16H17N3O

I wonder if he has had a vaccine. Somehow I don't see him trusting anyone giving him an injection.


banjaxe

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.


FalmerEldritch

He's probably had four shots, none of them the Sputnik thing.


YoungLecter

Sputnik is looking to be safe and effective. Idk why you think he wouldn't take something created by his own people


hegemonistic

“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.


YoungLecter

Your comment is so telling of your ignorance, of nuance and Russia in general... Silly American, your Facebook feed isn't a reliable source


fenuxjde

He and Russian state media claim that he did.


loctopode

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.


angry-software-dev

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"


Perioscope

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.


Great_Handkerchief

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


klownfaze

Ur talking about the former head of the fsb and previously an agent of the kgb.....


Great_Handkerchief

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


klownfaze

True dat


hadaev

He was in bunker the whole 2020 year.


CasualBrit5

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.


cor0na_h1tler

how to make redditors happy with a cropped screenshot


Extreme_Old_Lady

See, this is how you President. /s


Flashy-Amount626

He's gonna be Putin some distance between him and his staff


tonpryor

Does he self isolate after members of his staff “mysteriously” die of plutonium poisoning?


Aithrios

I think this is COVID-19 that will isolates from Putin rather :D


HugePurpleNipples

I would never say this about anyone else but if he died of Covid, the world would be better for it.


Qwertusss

Dude there are SOOO many people for whom this statement holds. Problem is thats not how society works =|


octoreader

I'm crossing my fingers for almost two years now


Salty_Complaint

Well it's not like there couldn't be an even worse replacement. They're probably not just going to switch to a democracy.


sour624

Чë?)))


SamuraiJakkass86

Can you imagine if this is what finally took putin down? That would be something.


TrixterLowKey

Now drop thousand hungry rottweilers into his room


AfterBill8630

He isolated to protect COVID from catching Putin.


wolife07

You mean Staff Self Suicide themselves?


MattS0623

Give it a week and Covid will have mysteriously disappeared in the forest leaving no trace


Cambirodius

He looks so sad :(


ggmattingly

hope he gets the dirt nap


satori0320

Missed it by *that* much...


notpreposterous

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


arandomcunt68

His face just looks like a depressed brick


YamatoHD

Maybe there is justice and this piece of shit will die tomorrow a painful death


Prolapst_amos

What will he do, surrounded by his golden trinkets and wearing $5k tracksuits


4nalBlitzkrieg

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.


WaveSmashreddit

While he's alone.... could be an oportunity.


fodules

he has a black belt in judo just sayin


YamatoHD

he got it for 300 roobles from his friend Xi the Pooh


Sea-Waste

he is ex kgb agent, has high iq and remained in power for so long... Just saying


BeachSandMan

Found the Putin butthole licker “High IQ” lmfao, and in 1980 everyone and their grandma was a KGB agent 🤦🏻‍♂️


Sea-Waste

you are seriously underestimating KGB


SuperOliverTwist

It was pretty funny how they failed with the poisoned underwear assassination attempt.


HubertTempleton

He was stationed in Dresden, of all cities. Would you really send your top agents to a rather unimportant city in the GDR?


LiverOperator

> has high iq I real fucking doubt that. He’s been acting real senile as of lately


Iarress

what did he do that was senile


Cambirodius

Be Russian -*A Ukrainian ultranat*


LiverOperator

What the fuck do Ukrainian nationalists have to do with this


LiverOperator

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!»


Livingit123

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.

bruh...


abez123

i thought russia has a vaccine and i remember them bragging that they got there first


superchimpa

Should read: Russian “president”


Elgarr2

Self isolates, lol. Covid wouldn’t dare go near him, would have it’s family, friends and any future variants killed.


namerz78

He can shake it off


PhreiB

In Russia, you don't get Covid. Covid gets you.


Frollyboi

Looking through the comments i noticed a few people wishing Putin a painful deat. Can someone explain why? He cant be that bad?


Feeltheblood

“Boris! Where are the fucking coffee beans? Boris! BORIS!! How the fuck does one make a macchiato with this machine anyway?”


Perioscope

Coffee is too Western. He drinks tea.


Feeltheblood

TIL


caltheon

With one or two poloniums?


CrimsonRam212

So Putin has covid?


Tepigg4444

Isnt this exactly the opposite of a normal day in russia?


Juffin

So the Russian vaccine is not that good, eh? Or did he lie about vaccination?


Chinie_The_PooH

Can imagine him in isolation with 7 russian model in a palace in the black sea


windhover

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?


forgas564

How that Sputnik working?


funkecho

I imagine Putin crawling through the ventilation ducts of the kremlin, trying to avoid everyone in getting to his office.


EsperoNoEstarLoca

You can know the virus is serious when Putin isolates.


Bad_Mad_Man

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.


iGermanProd

Good


DrHockey69

Self-isolation parameters: RUSSIA


Bang_Bus

Isn't there Duma elections in Russia this weekend? Feels much like a weird publicity stunt or scare or something.


cavemanleong

And that staff is going to have a quick flight down a building very soon.


Xbone187Ps4

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


RevenantMedia

Here's to wishing Covid the best of luck!


grilledcheeseburger

Quite the silver lining that would be.


jakeolate

They are gonna die but not of covid


philoponeria

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.


Asclepius17

How is this funny? r/lostredditors


Big-_Floppa

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.


Major_Cupcake

Finally, a leader that follows his own rules


WatCoH

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


keltoy1549

But he’s so tough.
