This summer, 44-year-old actor Yegor Beroev was at the center of a scandal when he came to the TEFI – Chronicle of Victory award ceremony with a yellow star on his jacket. All Jews in Germany were required to wear such a sign during the Holocaust. Thus, the actor spoke out against the “discrimination” of those not vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Continuing to oppose compulsory vaccination, Beroev made a bold statement the other day. This time he wrote a post about the Nazi document Ahnenpaß – the so-called “certificate of origin”, which was “received by the true Aryans”, thus drawing a parallel with the current QR codes about vaccinations:
The document served as a confirmation of the Aryan origin (heredity) and was issued on the basis of a hereditary check of two generations (the applicant's parents and their parents). Those who were certified were considered “purebred Aryans” and at first the certification was voluntary. The authorities argued that the lack of a certificate did not lead to a loss of rights, and conversely, possession of the certificate provided additional preferences to the already existing rights.
Beginning in 1935, a certificate was required when applying for a job. In the same year, the certificate became mandatory for all civil servants, teachers, doctors and lawyers. Those without a certificate were fired. Later, the certificate became required for visiting educational institutions, churches, theaters and travel on public transport,
– Beroev explained on his Facebook.
The actor's publication found a great response among netizens. While some supported Beroev for such a comparison, others criticized him, recalling that the epidemiological situation in the country is now almost catastrophic.
Yegor, stop speculating on this. In a country where more than a thousand people die a day from a disease that can be prevented or alleviated by vaccination, this is simply unacceptable. You are an artist and a public figure, but not a medic,
– the web user wrote to him.
They touched the words of Beroev and his famous colleagues. So, the producer Alexander Rodnyansky could not keep silent, who called the comparison to which the actor resorted, “monstrously stupid and absolutely offensive.”
This is not the first time Beroev has compared the vaccination process, which protects against a deadly virus, with the worst tragedy of the 20th century – the Holocaust, which claimed the lives of six million people, including dozens of my relatives, who were killed just because they were Jews. Beroev first allowed himself to go on stage with a yellow star sewn on, which in itself was an act of absolute disrespect for the memory of millions of innocent victims. But he did not stop at this meanness and compared the vaccine with a “certificate of origin”.
To allow oneself to similar, to put it mildly, stupid comparisons can be made either by an idiot, or a mentally ill, or a malicious person. I hope you agree with me.
– said Rodnyansky.
Not only his followers agreed with the director, but also celebrities, among whom were Sofya Kapkova, Alexander Tsypkin, Bozhena Rynska, Igor Vernik and others.
I am also torn with indignation, as people do not understand the obvious difference,
– wrote Kapkova.
And Ksenia Sobchak was marked by an ambiguous “oh”.
Now the authorities are introducing new restrictions due to the difficult situation with the coronavirus. The country breaks mortality records every day – over the past 24 hours, a new maximum of deaths from coronavirus was recorded in Russia (1,028 people died). Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that in September the number of detected cases of COVID-19 in the capital quadrupled compared to August – up to 42 thousand per week.
In connection with the increase in the incidence, today Vladimir Putin announced a non-working week from October 30 to November 7.
