Moscow’s Sanitary Shield will normalize useless PCR tests and “vaccines”
Riley Waggaman – Off Guardian –
In April 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced ambitious plans to keep the country safe from future coronavirus-like plagues.
“In the event of an infection as dangerous as the coronavirus or perhaps more, God forbid, Russia must be ready within four days—precisely within four days—to develop its own test systems, and in the shortest possible time to create an effective domestic vaccine, to start its mass production,” Putin said during a speech to the Federation Council, Russia’s upper house of parliament.
The rapid development of tests and vaccines would be part of a “powerful and reliable shield in the field of sanitary and biological safety” that should be functional in the next three years and fully operational by 2030, the Russian leader told lawmakers.
Although far from completion, Russia’s “Sanitary Shield”—a network of laboratories and border checkpoints tasked with ensuring the country’s biosecurity—sprang into action in response to the curious emergence of monkeypox in early May.
But will this “shield” actually keep Russians safe and healthy? Or is it just another gross scam? We investigated and you will probably not be even the tiniest bit surprised by what we found.
“AN EPIDEMIC WITHOUT A LOCKDOWN”
Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova—a passionate advocate for ineffective and potentially dangerous medications—has played a central role in Sanitary Shield’s development.
“Today we believe that this project is one of the most important, because this won’t be the only pandemic that we will have to face in our lives,” Golikova said while speaking at the New Knowledge conference in Moscow in September.
“In addition to the research centers, infrastructure will also be laid down to test new arrivals to the country. We are planning to create, at checkpoints along the whole border of the Russian Federation, express diagnostics units that can test for any virus within an hour,” she explained.
As for Sanitary Shield vaccine development: Golikova cited Sputnik V as a model to emulate, dismissing completely accurate accusations that Russia had rushed the drug’s development and safety testing.
“Today, science and engineering has reached a level that allows us to build [vaccines] like a designer, using biological, mathematical and other methods,” the deputy prime minister claimed.
Rospotrebnadzor chief Anna Popova, speaking last June at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, was similarly optimistic about Sanitary Shield’s potential, describing the program’s slogan as: “An epidemic without a lockdown.”
“This is the task that we have set. We must ensure the functioning of the country, both the economy and social relations, by preventing the spread of infection,” she said. “The task is very difficult, but we have prioritized it: new conditions, new rules you follow, that’s all.”
INVESTING IN A GLOBAL MECHANISM
Russia is so confident in its Sanitary Shield that it has already pitched the idea to other countries.
Commenting on the results of the G20 summit held in Rome at the end of October 2021, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said he had lobbied other nations to adopt Moscow’s approach to biosecurity.
“Russia is helping other countries to fight the pandemic, both on the bilateral and on the multilateral level: in the form of delivering vaccines, personal protection equipment, medicines and providing other technical assistance,” Siluanov told the gathering of G20 ministers.
The Russian finance minister also informed his counterparts about “measures that Russia is implementing on the national level, particularly the ‘Sanitary Shield’ project” and “suggested creating a similar mechanism on the global level.”
Although recent geopolitical events have undoubtedly complicated Russia’s relationship with its (former?) “western partners,” Siluanov’s dream of a global Sanitary Shield should not be dismissed as mere fantasy.
Tellingly, the development of the fabled Shield is on the agenda at this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Described as “Russia’s answer to Davos,” SPIEF has boasted VIP guests such as Klaus Schwab and Henry Kissinger.
