State owned Russia Today reported that Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin issued an order to close Russia’s border with China in the Far East.
The Far East is Russia’s largest region in terms of landmass and it’s also the most remote area of the country.
This decision is following Vladimir Putin’s instructions on Wednesday when he requested that government officials do whatever they can to prevent the dissemination of the Chinese coronavirus.
Furthermore, Mishushtin directed Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova to update the public on a daily basis on the status of coronavirus in Russia. As of now, the Russian government has not confirmed any cases of the virus.
“An order has been signed today, it has become operational,” Mishustin informed ministers in Moscow.
“We will inform everyone today of the relevant measures to close the border in the Far East region and other measures the government has taken [to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Russia].”
Similarly, Moscow temporarily suspended the issuance of electronic visas to Chinese nationals, according to a Foreign Ministry announcement on Thursday afternoon.
These measures will apply to border checkpoints in the Far East and Kaliningrad, in addition to all entry points in the Leningrad region and St Petersburg. On top of that, it advised Russian travelers to not travel to China, unless the trip is absolutely necessary.
The Russian government’s announcements came on the heels of Chinese authorities revealing on Thursday morning that the number of people who caught the virus stood at 7,700 thousand, with at least 170 people dying from the virus. 38 of those deaths took place within the timespan of Wednesday and Thursday.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
