Jerusalem Post 31 March headline: 2020 Putin Offered Trump Russian corona-virus help!
The same Media headlines in my home country in Holland where an article claimed that Trump accepted the help of Putin to fight the #Wuhanvirus. First there were the conspiracy theories that Russia had almost no corona-virus cases and was in bed with the Chinese for some secret world domination plan they executed. Others said after this news that Putin just wanted to have the sanctions lifted for Russia. Now these headlines made me make a few phone calls as I felt there was a bigger story looming.
The economist last weeks had their own explanation why Russian’s Covid-19 has such low numbers in Russia (the opposite is true).
Well lo and behold.. 5000+ Russians infected and hundreds are dead!
According to my sources close to the Kremlin, Putin is extremely upset with his “team” for hiding the seriousness of Covid-19. Currently his re-election is at stake. Has Putin been set up for a fall? It seems as the virus progresses in Russia like it did in other countries like the States Putin would not be re-elected, who benefits from this Trump or XI? According to multiple of my sources: at this stage over 15000 people are infected in Russia hundreds of them are dead.
The difference of Putin and Xi. “dangerous virus”?
There is no doubt that President Putin took this virus very serious, footage shows Putin taking on a heavy biological “hazmat” protective suite including covering his whole head, while visiting a hospital in Russia where he is still informed the spread is worse than it looks (still downplayed). The social media is flooded with Fake pictures (see headline picture) of Putin being scared of the virus for the purpose of public outrage.. There are also reports that Putin has the corona-virus himself now as the main doctor who shook the hands of Putin (Doctor Protsenko in this video below shook the hands of Putin before Putin was protected with his “hazmat” outfit) doctor Denis Protsenko has been diagnosed with corona-virus (what are the odds in a country with officialy “hardly” any cases) ?
Now on the contrary president Chi visited the Epicenter of the outbreak Wuhan city just parading the streets with a face mask?
Why has Beijing been not affected at all? While the world is counting the dead the Chinese government just announced basically no more cases and kick-starting their economy again by opening up the factories and stores.
Meanwhile Prime Minister Boris Johnson sits home and maybe needs to be hospitalized being infected with the corona-virus. England being on lock down for at least 6 months. Many other European countries suffering from the same #Wuhan virus measurements, is this crisis in the Kremlin the start of a friendship between Russia and the US ,will both countries unite to distance themselves from China who created this worldwide mess and hold China accountable?
