The head of the Doctors ‘Alliance trade union Anastasia Vasilyeva published a post on Thursday in which she asked not to associate her with the Anti-Corruption Fund (to clarify that Doctors’ Alliance is declared a foreign agent in Russia, and FBK is an extremist organization).
Friends, it is hard for me to write these words, but in connection with the latest events that are taking place with me and my like-minded people, I want about painful things.
Our “Alliance of Doctors” appeared in August 2018. I decided to take up trade union activities to make life easier for my fellow doctors. This has always been and remains my main motivation.
During the pandemic, informational assistance was provided by the FBK. But only those in need of us disappeared – they forgot about us. Used and thrown away …
From now on, I ask you not to associate me and the Alliance of Doctors with FBK
I’m very disappointed. FBK managers are now destroying what we all created with such labor: for Volkov, Zhdanov, Singers, power and money turned out to be more important than fate.
They are now in Europe, while others are in prison. Do you feel the difference? Anyone who believed him is now under the threat of criminal prosecution. And when they are imprisoned, he will not remember about them.
From now on, I ask you not to associate me and the Alliance of Doctors with FBK. I certainly do not give up and the union will continue its work. We ourselves will deal with our criminal cases and cope with the pressure that is being put on us.
In winter, Anastasia Vasilyeva actively fought to ensure that Alexei Navalny was provided with proper medical care in the colony. Many commentators found it difficult to believe that she could publish such a post, and they assumed that it was a hack.
A very strange story. Looks like a hijacking without details …
Now it’s fashionable to break pages and write fakes.
However, Vasilyeva’s press secretary confirmed To Meduza (announced by the Russian authorities as a foreign agent) that the post is genuine. The fact that the statement was published on the last day before the elections makes many commentators sad. A comparison often comes up with Roman Protasevich, the former editor-in-chief of the Belarusian telegram channel NEXTA, who has “reformed” into a supporter of Lukashenka.
The real name of Vasilyeva from the “Alliance of Doctors” at the moment is Protasevich.
Well, or Pyotr Yakir …
Our version of Protasevich. The day before the election. Quite clumsy.
Anastasia Vasilyeva, leader of the Alliance of Doctors, unexpectedly criticized FBK (banned on the territory of the Russian Federation). It is unclear what motivated her statement: 1) they put a knife to her throat, threatening to declare the Alliance an undesirable organization, and to deprive her of her parental rights and imprison her for a long time if she does not say so; 2) she was promised support if she “cheats on Navalny” and goes over to the side of the authorities; 3) she is just tired and scared and does not want to go to jail or emigrate. In any case, it is written as a dictation and is not just a statement of a break with former associates. Its purpose is to unnecessarily discredit structures that are all prohibited anyway, so it announces the termination of cooperation with them (especially with the liquidated FBK) of any practical sense. […]
In any case, the text is written as dictation
After such a post, it is quite believable that she will now “sort out” the pressure and criminal cases on her own. However, this is very similar to the case of Protasevich. And ashamed and sorry at the same time.
Navalny’s associate Ivan Zhdanov wrote that Vasilyeva’s life has recently been “turned into hell.”
Some details of this hell are well known. Vasilyeva is a suspect in the “sanitary case” (about the violation of epidemiological rules at rallies in support of Navalny in January 2021). She had to spend some time under house arrest. Since the beginning of the year, they managed to check her for “spreading fakes about the coronavirus” and fined her 180 thousand rubles for a picket outside the colony where Navalny is sitting. Unlike other defendants in the “sanitary case”, she has not yet been sentenced. Many commentators are sure that pressure on the most sensitive points has not been done here, and sincerely sympathize with Vasilyeva.
Humanly, everything is very clear. Anastasia is raising two children alone, she is the only one who has not yet been sentenced on the “sanitary case”, recently she was dragged to court by force, etc.). It is difficult for her and she is pressed.
But, of course, all this is very sad. It is sad that the man was broken. It is sad that the government uses such dirty technologies.
In my opinion, this perfectly shows the whole weight of the load taken on by a few daredevils. Sometimes the pressure is overwhelming. Without broad support, even a very tough person can not stand it, it’s only a matter of time. Especially if the regime manages to hook on the most painful – the child …
By analogy with Protasevich, many expect the worst.
Apparently, it will soon surface in the ONF. Or in the Public Chamber.
One way or another, it is obvious that the Kremlin propaganda will exploit this “renunciation” with might and main.
I don’t know what really happened there, but turning FBK into mercantile ones on the eve of the elections is convenient for only one structure. In any case, the text of the accusation almost word for word coincides with the previous claims of the hostages that were already there. Anastasia has strength and patience! FBK, of course, too.
In the pro-Kremlin blogs – a celebration of schadenfreude.
The training manual was delivered to the propagandists on time.
There are also posts that assure the reader that Vasilyeva really could sincerely disown the FBK.
Vasilyeva is never a significant figure to put pressure on her, forcing her to write this. They don’t solve anything. Most likely PZhiV (Pevchikh, Zhdanov and Volkov) stupidly threw her in Russia. Nastya felt hurt. Understand.
In any case, I do not blame her FOR THIS.
I’m not at all sure that Vasiliev can be somehow compared with Protasevich. By the way, but those who write about Protasevich in a banter format have already served their time in the camps or are they writing directly from there from a gadget brought in for a bribe?
Rather, Vasilieva does not want to become like Kolesnikova. So you all admire Kolesnikova’s courage, do not remember Maxim Znak, who was sentenced in the same case, but what is it to them. Imagine the conditions in which they are sitting. And Russia is really testing the tactics of fighting the opposition in Belarus, and now they are being arrested for telegram channels.
For you, Kolesnikov is an informational occasion to write about courage. Alien. Vasiliev, in principle, too. A fearless doctor breaks through to Navalny to help … So if it is closed, you will write a maximum of two posts, as about Kolesnikova.
Russia is really testing the tactics of fighting the opposition in Belarus
And besides, she is doomed to be involved in a trade union, which is recognized as a foreign agent. Some serious medical practice for her, even in private medicine, consider that it is impossible. In the amount to contain children at least.
But what makes her in common with Protasevich, and Kolesnikova, by the way. Companions need alive, healthy and free. Navalny’s associates, of course, cannot do something for Vasilyeva. They can support with a word. At least when her finger was broken during the next detention. They don’t want to, not before …
In fact, it is important not to live to see sitting down even in the same field with the bastard Serukanov. Because the line is thin, there will certainly be proposals. And courageous readers will push her from the sofas with their hate, so this also has to be endured.
If you need heroes, then no one prevents you from becoming them. Be like Kolesnikova, to whom you dedicated two posts each. And don’t be like Maxim Znak, which you forgot about (as, by the way, they don’t really remember in Belarus either).
Some pro-government channels are already burying Navalny and his structures as a political force.
This is a fixation of the political death of Navalny himself. By the time he is released from prison, there will be no structure under him. It is impossible to collect the quarreling environment at the click of your fingers. And having felt freedom and full-fledged leadership, the former comrades-in-arms themselves will not want to go back into the shadows to Navalny.
After being removed from the leader, the FBK leadership structure was unable to maintain its former stability. The key actors of Navalny’s team began their struggle for power, destroyed the already built elements of the “FBK system”.
That’s it, the sharashkin’s office went haywire as soon as Nauvoo was planted, and the rest were dumped to the West.
Probably it was “death”. Navalny explains that on Friday morning, Google and Apple, at the request of the Russian authorities, removed the AppStore and the Google Play application named after him from the stores.
