ER Editor: A shoutout to AlethoNews for making this RT story below available to us here in Europe.
But first, a word on this Russian withdrawal from international organisations from former RT editor and journalist Edward Slavsquat (aka Riley Waggaman) in a piece titled Russia might shred WHO agreements. The question that Slavsquat poses is what effect this withdrawal will have on current and upcoming global (so-called) agreements for Russia. But what about the effect on the rest of us regarding, for example, the pandemic treaty that members of the WHO are expected to vote on later this month, which could become international law.
He (humourously) writes,
The World Health Organization is terrible and Russia must immediately cancel its membership in this Bill Gates-sponsored international murder club. Everyone agrees. It’s a no-brainer.
The problem is, many high-ranking Russian government goons think Dr. Tedros is a total hunk and want to take him to prom and get him pregnant.
The weird thing is, this disgusting infatuation isn’t even mutual. The WHO passed a resolution last week threatening to vacate its office in Moscow. In response, Russia just kind of… moped.
But this is (slowly) starting to change? Interfax has the latest WHO-Russia drama alert:
A list of agreements between the Russian Federation and international organizations for consideration for their denunciation has been sent to the State Duma, said the vice speaker of the lower house, Pyotr Tolstoy.
“The Foreign Ministry has sent a list of such agreements to the State Duma, and together with the Federation Council we plan to analyze them and propose to denounce them,” Tolstoy said on Tuesday in the upper house.
“Russia withdrew from the Council of Europe, now the next step is to withdraw from the WTO (World Trade Organization) and WHO (World Health Organization), which have neglected all obligations towards our country,” Tolstoy added.
“There is work to be done to revise our international obligations, treaties, which today bring not benefit, but direct damage to our country,” the parliamentarian said.
… we are pleased to read that lawmakers are starting to take action. Tolstoy isn’t some no-name chump, either: he’s an influential and powerful politician and an all-star among Russian conservatives.
In October, Tolstoy famously berated the government for not being more transparent about its coercive vaccination campaign (“There are few answers to the questions why those who are vaccinated are ill, why those who are vaccinated die, why there are problems and complications after the vaccinations themselves”).
All in all, he’s a good egg.
So… what comes next?
On May 22, the WHO will meet in Geneva for the 75th World Murder Assembly.
The agenda will focus mainly on murder and how to keep doing it. Probably the delegates will also brainstorm a name for the next bogus plague that will force the world to adopt bug-burgers and central bank e-coins: will they choose Monkey Herpes or Sneaky Sigma? It’s a surprise.
To be honest—and honesty is always the best policy—there’s a decent chance that in the very near future we’ll all be locked in our homes, without food, Shanghai-style, forever.
But maybe Russia will say Nyet? Please? We can’t do this again. We need a hug.
A word from Thierry Meyssan about Russia proposing to leave the WTO in view of the illegal sanctions launched against it:
Russia to quit WTO
VOLTAIRE NETWORK |
After the United Kingdom announced that it would cease all exports to Russia, in violation of WTO rules, the United Russia Party tabled a bill in the Duma to withdraw Russia from the World Trade Organization (WTO) so as not to have to fulfill unilaterally the commitments of the organization.
Globalization as we have known it for thirty years is dying. The splitting of the world into two distinct zones should ultimately bring about the economic downfall of the West.
Additional note: Russia is also planning its withdrawal from the Council of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania). See here.
Russia moves to withdraw from WTO, WHO
Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, is planning to discuss the potential withdrawal of the country from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), according to Pyotr Tolstoy, the vice speaker of the parliament.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a list of such agreements to the State Duma, and together with the Federation Council [upper house of parliament] we are planning to evaluate them and then propose to withdraw from them,” Tolstoy said on Tuesday.
The vice speaker said that Russia had already canceled its membership in the Council of Europe, and that leaving the WTO and WHO is next.
“Russia withdrew from the Council of Europe, now the next step is to withdraw from the WTO and the WHO, which have neglected all obligations in relation to our country,” he said.
Tolstoy added that the government is expected to revise Russia’s international obligations and treaties that do not currently bring any benefit but directly damage the country.
In April, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the “illegal” restrictions placed on Russian companies by Western states run counter to WTO rules, and told the government to update Russia’s strategy in the organization by June 1.
The decision came amid the sweeping Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over its military operation in Ukraine launched in late February. Since then, Russia has been subjected to around 10,000 targeted restrictions, making it the world’s most sanctioned country.
