  1. Russia hides the truth, lies but in reality it is an incredibly poor country. Average salary is barely 200$ a month…

    • Russia had what America is heading toward. Notice I said “had” past tense. An enormous wealth gap with the poorest being literally dirt poor. Here is a perfect example of what happens when governments are allowed to let minimum wages fall far behind the cost of living & what happens when govt’s finally take action to address the poverty. In Jan 2020 the Russian gov’t increased the min monthly wage to 12,130 rubles ($195.5). States have the ability to set theirs higher and most have but the highest is Moscow at 18,781 rubles ($303) monthly. That’s the minimum monthly payment.. which means if you work 10 hours a month.. that’s the minimum you’ll be paid no matter what you do. Most households are earning around $2k a month though. The Russian median household income in 2019 was $23,000. Not so bad when you consider Russians have free healthcare & education, & most Russians own their homes outright. Rent or mortgage accounts for 30–50% of expenditures for many Americans. The median annual income in the US is $26k. The mortgage debt burden of the average Russian is $415 while the American mortgage debt of the average American is $173,000. The Russian per capita income in the 90’s had never reached $2k a year. Now the Russian per capita income, even after the sanctions & the low oil prices, is close to $14,000. By comparison the the US median wage has fallen 40% since 1989. In 1989 it was $21,000. Today it’s $26k. 1989’s $21k, adjusted for inflation, would be $36k in todays dollar valuation. While the US is falling behind with it’s decreased median wages & it’s citizens accruing substantially more debt just to stay above water – the Russians have risen from 2K to 14K, with free education, healthcare & for the majority no housing costs. Add to that utilities in Russia are dramatically lower than in the US & Russians pay a flat rate of 13% in income tax. Perhaps a little more study into the economics of Russia is in order? The information you gave is from back in the late 1980’s-early 1990’s.

    • @life isgood  Frankly, I didn’t get idea of what you meant to be said. Your narrative is such a messed up. Please, try to write in a language you speak. I have relatives living out there. So, information is pretty much reliable.

    • @wesley rodgers I wrote about of what I had relation to. Trump and US’ problems are out of my scope. But obviously, he is mismanaging this situation.

      @Русское море shoulda coulda woulda. If we ever learned we would have supported Bernie better but that’s not in Corporate Americas best interest.

      @usamail usanyc rickrollllll

    • @Reg U He’s running for President, isn’t he? If there’s corruption involved, we have a right to know.

    • @soylentdean Yep
      Let’s see any evidence.
      Both sides.

    • @TJ all there is to know is in the history books. Common the same is happening here in America. we are so screwed how can we judge others. Trump is lying to us every day. Firing all who desagree with him that is dictatorship. What is happening in NYC. And other states the anti lockdown protesters will overwhelm hospitals again. We are no better. the worst pandemic in history was the Kansas influenza pandemic. That killed up to 100 million and infected 500 million globally. But the media and the government keeps quite about it. All there is to know is in world history books. Pandemics existed as far as billion years and will continue to happenen from any Country. There are 1.5 million viruses. From a surviver of the Kansas pandemic. California then got hit the hardest because they lifted the lockdown earlier. The government lied like Trump is doing now. From a surviver of the worst pandemic in history.

    • And when Trump did something Democrat pussies said he was racist and xenophobic.
      You will be complaining about Trump for another 4 and a half years. Get used to it.

    This is the stage where almost every country has gone through or is going through.

  7. Ya, multiply Russians numbers by 10-20!! They lie to much to believe their “official” numbers!

  8. One more good reason for civilians to assassinate authoritarian leaders at any given chance.

    It’s sad for all the people. Hope they can recover.

  10. One can only imagine what it’s like inside of Russia now. Sad

      People like you go right to negativity; it’s sad.

    • I have friends who live in Russia. There are areas where the outbreaks are widespread, like it is in NY but fewer areas with large outbreaks than the US has. Hospitals there are facing the same shortage issues the US has been. My friends are Americans – he works as a liaison to the US Embassy – so they know what American hospitals are like and have said the hospitals in Russia are really very good. I think we’re pointing fingers without looking in our own backyard with a truthful eye.

    • Can’t be much worse than inside the US.

    • Russians all in China, only the anti Putin Russians still there.

      I have nothing against the Russian people, they’re good quality people like a lot of nations who some of us perceive to be our enemy. However, their governments are the true enemies. Putin needs to die.

    By “fully equipped ward” they mean a hole they dug in the back.

      Yes, in the USA terrible medicine.
      There are thousands of good hospitals in Russia. But a CNN propagandist found one small hospital and was glad that it was possible to make false propaganda against Russia. Why does CNN not show thousands of large and good Russian hospitals? Because they do not comply with anti-Russian propaganda.
      But the figures of the deceased in the United States (60 thousand) and in Russia (1 thousand) speak for themselves.

    The same Putin’s Russia that is sending medical supplies to Trump in America.

    • @conference Justice
      Trump trickle-down healthcare sponsored by the right-wing fringe.

    • conference Justice | April 30, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      Nope. It’s sponsored and paid for by George Soros.

    • @conference Justice
      Drop dead Trumpcare is sponsored and paid for by the Mercer’s and the Koch’s.

    • conference Justice | April 30, 2020 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      It’s way better than Obamacare sponsored by George Soros Cortard.

    • @conference Justice
      Go and get yourself a Trump skinny policy and put it through the test. You’ll need 20k up front to walk through the Hospital door. When Trump gets through with you, you’ll be holding a Bernie for president sign.

    What is this trend about denying how bad this virus is? Every country is suffering so there’s no need to play pretend

    • @codent That’s so true. Response times and how aggressive preventative measures are, all plays a part.

    • A) It doesn’t fit their political agenda
      B) Politicians, Billionaires and other power brokers hide in their mansions and let the commoners risk their lives.
      Nothing has really changed over the last eight thousand years.
      Roman senators, European nobles, 21st Century majority shareholders. Just different names for the same group of people.

      I’m no politician or “power broker.” I just have a 21st century set of highly marketable skills. But keep oversimplifying so that you don’t have to feel bad about your life, no one ever needed maturity and the ability to comprehend nuance to be successful in life.

      @söder bröder Russia is a beautiful country and those that visit and live there speak on it’s beauty regularly. Russia is also wholly corrupt. Everyone knows it but the majority allow it so there’s little that can be done. The US is getting a taste of that with Trump. Everyone knows he’s fleecing the federal coffers but there’s nothing to all can do about it.

    • söder bröder as if america isn’t 🤪😂😂
