For example, in the US, the excess death number is closer to a half million, who wouldnt have died if trump hadn't been incompetent and dishonest.

"Excess Death"

It's an easy way to tell if the government is hiding bodies somewhere.

In other news, this sort of death toll in Russia,
coupled with the lasting echoes from WWII on their
diminishing population (which is fascinating to read about
btw...YouTube also has several good videos on it) is actually
probably one of the Primary Motives (along w his insatiable
will to recapture the glory of the Soviet Empire days) for Putin
to move forward with an invasion of Ukraine in the near future.

Putin desperately needs more human fodder for his armies/plans,
as Russia is slowly being killed off on its own due to an aging
population and the effects of WWII and now Covid upon its population.

"Excess deaths " seen by demographers and statisticians as the most reliable indicator of lives lost to the pandemic " are calculated by comparing the total number of fatalities from all causes during the pandemic with those registered in the same period before the coronavirus."

Seriously? If this doesn't give Putin a get-out-of-jail free card for human rights abuses, it will when someone finally whistleblows. He can kill anyone he wants now without it ever even being suspect. Just say it was an excess death and then articles like this will come out and insinuate that those excess deaths are just bad covid tracking. Freaking amazing how the world gives him the power to do that. I mean, he could always do it but there would always be suspicion. Now, there doesn't even have to be any suspicion.

Unlike yourself, most people can tell the difference between excess covid deaths and assassinations.

Why are you whining about putin and his human rights abuses? He funds your party and controls your cult leader.

I guess whining about the boss is normal in america, so carry on.
