This will be a little article about Dagestan and what is currently going on here.
I myself live in Dagestan and can only tell that the brain capacity from the people are not measurable in this current situation.
Many die and the hospitals are packed fully, medical equipment is missing while staff workers dont get paid. They try to talk to the representive of the Russian Federation.
First they did not listen and didnt believed the existence of the virus and now they say that the president is fault.
No one is allowed to go outside and yet most dont give a damn. They say „We need to work otherwise we have no money for food“.
Unfortuanatly they are correct and the salary here is ‚extremely‘ low. Many houses are bought with a mortgage and cant be paid. Still the bank’s give out credits, knowing that people wont be able to pay it back.
Still no one really cares about holding distance, there are few but not all. Everyone gets infected and overload the capacity’s from near hospitals which are already low.
The people want money from the government. I absolutely understand that there is no money for quite a lot of people and so they try to work.
The problem in russia is the insane corrupt political aspect. Many here would kill you for money and this is still said mildly!
The government said self isolation! No quarantine! Why ? Because otherwise they would need to pay money for the people. Yes they do help now but with what ? A family with a child from 3 to 12 years will get 10.000 roubles. What about the rest ?
Dispite the fact, no one will die here because there was no food. The people are very friendly and give a lot for free. They are very polite and big hearted specially the old people. And yet there is not much given them back from the government.
But very sadly, a lot of trouble is going on behind the scenes. This place has no real structure, no money, greedy people which hide under a mask of being true to their religion.
The beauty of the mountains throw a dark and wide shadow over Dagestan. This all because of corruption and self interest.
Lets see what will happen. The people were i live, still dont care and walk around like nothing is going on.
Many hope that this place will change. Yes it is a lot better than the times with stalin in power. However no real jobs with enough salary to feed a family. Often people work 12 to 14 hours a day with 2 jobs to get over the month.
Thats why many flee from here to S.Petersberg, Moscow, Germany, France and so on.
The kids dont have a bright future here.
When anyone got interest, i will make another blog to Dagestan and behind the scenes.
See ya 🙂
