Does Russia Force Underage Girls to Take Virginity Tests? Western Media Says “Yes”, Reality Says “Nope”

_________________________

Editor:

This is much like the story on alleged gay concentration camps run by Kadyrov in Chechnya. It’s 100 percent pure unadulterated unalloyed bullshit. Nothing more need be said on the matter… read it and see how stupid Western liberals are. They really believe this shit.

Did you know that Russian doctors are required by law to check the “integrity” of each and every young Russian hymen, and then report any signs of sexual activity to the police? We didn’t know either! Until of course, we read this brave report published by the Independent:

Doctors in Russia have reportedly been instructed to perform virginity tests on underage girls. […] Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov said doctors must follow the order and “inform police about all cases when virginity was lost as well as about cases of pregnancies and abortions involving girls under 16-years-old”. The order instructs doctors to check the “integrity of the hymen” and look for signs of damage.

Where to begin? Well, for starters… Russia’s Health Minister is V I Skvortsova. This Vladimir guy is the health minister of Saratov Oblast, which is sort of like being the head health honcho of Tumbleweed NE. Amazingly, even the garbage Daily Mail article cited by the Independent managed to correctly identify Shuldyakov as the Health Minister of a small region of Russia. However, the Independent simply refers to him as “Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov”; Saratov isn’t even mentioned in the Independent’s report. Also, Shuldyakov cancelled his order three days before the Independent published its hymen horror story:

Minister of Health of the Saratov Oblast Vladimir Shuldyakov cancelled his order, according to which doctors were obliged to inform the police about cases of deprivation of virginity and pregnancy of schoolgirls, the head of the press service of the regional Ministry of Health, Aleksandr Kolokolov, told RIA Novosti.

Will the Independent correct its story? Or, at least “update” it? Of course not. Friends… we’re reaching levels of bullshit that’d make William Randolph Hearst blush. He’s the creep who invented the modern “save the young girls from the savages!” tabloid story. So just to recap, the Independent:

  1. Portrayed a provincial official as Russia’s top health official
  2. Reported on an “order” that was cancelled three days prior

What we enjoy most about this hilariously 100 percent false story is that the Independent cited a tabloid… and then somehow managed to make the story even more wrong. Say what you will, but that requires “skill sets”.

Russia SLAMS Trump’s Cuba policy

Russia supports the legacy of Comrade Fidel and respects Cuba’s socialist vision

________________________

The MID RF expressed solidarity with Cuba and cautioned against a return to “Cold War rhetoric”. It condemned moves by the Trump Administration to reimpose a ban on Americans travailing to Cuba as well as a likely return to many previously lifted sanctions dropped during Barack Obama’s historic thaw with Havana. Trump came out with hardline policies on Cuba in a lengthy campaign-style speech from Miami, home to many anti-Communist Cubans. The MID RF released a condemnatory statement saying that the USA’s “arrogant style of doing business with Cuba is pointless”. It also said that if the USA fully returns to the era of embargo, blockade, and sanctions, the USA would be totally out of step with the expressed will of the UN General Assembly. Russia reaffirmed its position on Cuba in the following way:

We reaffirm our unwavering solidarity with Cuba… a friendly peace-loving country, an authoritative member of the international community, which has a recognised constructive role in Latin America and in world affairs.

Moscow and Havana have been close ever since the Cuban Revolution of 1959, relations were somewhat strained in the 1990s but have seen become close and fruitful again under President Putin. In many ways, this is the clearest sign yet that Trump intends to run for President in 2020. Republicans long used the issue with Cuba to cultivate votes among anti-Communist Cubans living in the important state of Florida. Trump’s Cuba policy is likely nothing more than an attempt to win future votes in an important US state.

The MID RF reaffirmed Russia’s support for the Island of Freedom and its socialist vision. Those who say that Russia is “conservative” can eat shit and die!

Why Putin Won’t Reveal the Names and Ages of His Grandchildren

______________________________

Editor:

Compare Putin’s sanity to the sick publicity-seeking of such amoral filth such as Donald Trump and the Clintons (and their dysfunctional families). I needn’t add anything more.

As a popular and influential world leader, V V Putin faces a serious dilemma… how can his family expect to lead a normal dignified existence when there are so many crazy people with selfie sticks who’d love to chase them down in the streets of Moscow? Of course, this is more or less standard practise in the “civilised” Anglo-Saxon world, where they fawn over royal babies from birth, who then later in life develop cocaine habits; and in America, they even make goofy movies starring Sinbad about the First Kid. Imagine the psychological trauma. Putin doesn’t want his grandchildren growing up to be Chelsea Clinton. Therefore, on Thursday, during his nationally broadcasted Q&A session, he made it clear why he doesn’t parade his family around the Kremlin for the tabloid press (in fact, he doesn’t even feel the need to divulge the names of his grandchildren, or even how old they are):

You know, my children, my daughters, live a normal life here in Moscow, contrary to all rumours. I also have grandchildren. They live a normal life, too. I don’t want them to grow up as “blue bloods”; I want them to develop into normal human beings. For that, they need ordinary human interaction as part of a children’s community. Once I expose their ages and names, they’d harass them immediately. That would damage a child’s development. Therefore, I’d like to ask you to treat my position with understanding.

We can already imagine the Daily Beast headline:

“Putin threatens to kill journalists who stalk his infant grandchildren”.

VVP Puts a Smartass Western Journalist in Their Place

This is what the USA does. It has the goddamn gall to lecture others on moral behaviour. I need to find a corner to be sick in…

________________________

If while expressing their point of view people break the law in our country, then, law enforcement has to do its job, as in any other country, but unlike other countries, our police don’t use batons or tear gas as we often see in your country. Your law enforcement disassembled the Occupy movement into pieces and dissolved it; I don’t ask you how are things with democracy in your country. Why do you think you have a right to ask us these questions, to teach us morals and to teach us how to live our life? We welcome constructive criticism if it comes from a good place in an effort to foster a closer relationship, but we don’t accept it when you use it as a tool of political pressure.

V  V Putin

President of the Russian Federation
