My people, how far? I hope you guys, your family, friends and loved ones are all in good health?

I no really get much update, just wanted to drop by and check on you guys.

Omo this Coronavirus situation is really scary. This year isn’t really going the way anyone expected. People are dying, Companies are shutting down. I'm afraid that even when this whole Coronovirus issue is over, the economic impact will last for years. A part of me feels like even if the whole world recovers from this pandemic soon, the impact on the global economy will be hard to recover from and that could even cause more deaths. I also fear that at some point, The US, Europe, China and all other developed countries will handle their coronavirus and recover and then it will hit Africa hard and the whole world will move on and not care. I really hope it doesn't get to that point because Nigeria and African in general is not ready or equipped to handle such an outbreak. It will be catastrophic.

We are currently in quarantine hre in Russia. The situation here isn't as bad as in The US Italy or Spain. The total cases in Russia is currently 2,777 and total deaths are 24. There is a feeling among Russians that the real figure hasn't been reported. I don't ever want to say anything about that before they arrest me because here in Russia, people get arrested for posting anything that is considered anti government on social media.

About school. President Putin declared this week a public holiday of some sort. It's not a holiday per say because everybody is mandated to stay indoors this week. You can only go outside to buy essential things like medicine or groceries. You could get arrested if you're caught outside this week. So that's the current situation in Russia, everybody is under house arrest hahaha no movement this week. Everything resumes next week Monday. My school has also decided to use distance learning to deliver our classes for now.

One funny thing happened a few days ago, my parents called to tell me to stay indoors because they heard Putin released lions in the streets of Russia to attack anyone who violates the stay at home order hahaha. I obviously told them is fake news but they still think it's true hahahaha

My friend S who studies in the same program with me, the one that owns that cute cat I posted before. She traveled to her hometown because of this quarantine (she wants to spend it with her parents and her boyfriend) so she asked me to stay in her apartment till she returns so of course the first thing I did was bring out my phone and made cute pictures of Misha the cat hahaha. I'm really happy my friend asked me to stay in her apartment during this quarantine period because I can't imagine spending the quarantine locked up with my annoying roommates in the dormitory hahaha.

Also, some weeks back, the vice president of the Nigerian community in Saint Petersburg celebrated his birthday and they organised a football match in his honour so I'll share some pictures from that. The video is on my YouTube channel.

Oga president sharply denied and said he didn't make such comment.

The Government didn't introduce any stimulus package or bailouts, this week is a public holiday (stay at home) so Putin mandated all companies to give all employees a paid leave this week. That's all, no allowance like America, Canada and Germany smh.

Btw I feel eally bad for women in abusive relationships cos right now they are forced to stay at home 24/7 with their abusers smh. Domestic violence is decriminalized in Russia which basically gives men in Russia the free hand to beat and abuse their wives and girlfriends without consequences. There is an old Russian belief that if a man beats his wife or gf, that means he truly loves her. It's a really fuc*ked up and primitive way to think and I can't believe the Russian Govt doesn't want to make domestic violence a punishable offense. Was just thinking about it this morning and it made me really sad. cry

So if a woman is mortally beaten by a spouse she can't report a case of assault? if so, do they sell Rat poison? grin I guess the woman will also walk free if she takes the law into her hands

Do not pretend you are an angel.

OK. Russia has no democracy, President Putin is a dictator, Russia is not civilized, Russia's economy is poorer than other European countries, Russian media are censored, bla bla bla.

So please, come back to Nigeria to develop your homeland. The country is in need of human resources like you to develop. You should also go back to marry Nigerian women. They are waiting for you. Do not try to flirt and pursue Russian women.

Russia doesn't need you running around to make a joke.

I see you're the latest attention seeker on here. You'll probably start attacking every single travel thread on nairaland.

Is he an illegal immigrant?

Has he committed any crime?

When will you dumbos learn that people travel all around the world for different reasons. This guy has never for once mentioned that he traveled to live permanently in Russia. He's in Russia studying!! There are thousands of Americans studying all over the world, thousands of Chinese studying all over the world, same for Europeans, same for every fucking country in the world. So don't be stupid.

Find another thread to display your anger and fustrations emanating from the Hunger this quarantine session has brought on you.

You don't understand what I mean, do you?

I mean, he doesn't need to pretend to be an angel.

He thinks Russian men are abusive husbands and he is the savior for Russian women? He think Russia has no freedom? He think that he is better than Russian.

He should go home to change Nigeria first and leave Russia alone.

But I bet that he would find a way and would rather die to stay in Russia instead of going back to Nigeria. Trust me wink

This guy has basically said good things about Russia and the people since he started his thread. Says the good part about them and ignore the terrible ones. I don't think you followed his thread from the very beginning. The guy has painted a perspective of Russians as nice and friendly people even though they're mostly cold and hostile especially to Africans. This is the first time he'll mention the negative aspects a little and you're pissed.

The thing is he's trying to positively talk about Russia the best way he can. Try to read his thread from the beginning before you go all out attacking him.

Btwn, everything he said about Russia and women rights is very true. It might be exactly the same thing in Nigeria but someone going to a supposedly more civilized and developed country like Russia would be shocked how common domestic violence against women is.

Update no too dey for now, we're still on lock down. It's been a month now since the lock down and we've been having classes online now. The Semester is still on and the schedule is still the same but we have classes online using Microsoft teams or zoom depending on the professor.

I made a video recently asking Russians (students in our dorm) to pronounce some difficult words in English and it was really funny.

The corona cases in Russia just increased to 93,558 confirmed cases and 867 total deaths and it's getting worse. Everything is on total lock down now till April 30th then Putin will either extend the lock down or relax it a bit.

I hope you guys are in good health and staying safe.
