Freedom Convoy Movement Continues Spreading Across the Globe: Russian Truckers to Organize Freedom Convoy


Canada’s Freedom Convoy continues to inspire the world to take action against tyrannical COVID-19 mandates and restrictions. 

The trucker convoy movement has reached Russia as the Association of Carriers of Russia(OPR) will organize its own convoy.

Russia’s Free Press writes (translated):

The Association of Carriers of Russia (OPR) intends to support its colleagues from Canada, who organized the “Convoy of Freedom”. The demands of truckers and all those who sympathize with them are shared by the overwhelming majority of citizens of the Russian Federation. Most likely, protests will begin when the weather warms up, and they can become the catalyst that will blow up our society. The patience of the people is at its limit, and no one believes one iota in the “patriotic” spells of our “guarantor”, which he was recently struck by.

“Convoy of Russia” – the future action of the ODA is a purely local project, no “proletarian internationalism”. Support for Canadians is only at the ideological level, because the citizens of each country solve their own problems. However, for the most part they are common.

And not only ours and Canadians. There is also serious unrest in the European Union, even the Baltic nationalists are going to protest. And all on the same topic. More precisely, with one starting point, which was the actions of the authorities to restrict the rights and freedoms of citizens in connection with the so-called “coronavirus”.

The officials of the whole world and the “oligarchs” behind them (again on a planetary scale!) got a taste, they are jointly building an “electronic concentration camp Earth”. The people, of course, do not like this.


The abolition of compulsory vaccination, in any of its manifestations, as well as the elimination of digital slavery and its implementation are the two main messages of the future Convoy Russia. However, it is rather on the seed. The requirements are generally more fundamental.

“As early as 2017, the Association of Russian carriers put forward the thesis of distrust in the president and the current government. Since then, the government has partially changed, but does not inspire confidence because the standard of living of Russians is changing by no means, not for the better. The person who can drastically change your life looks at you from the mirror. And the future of your children is in your hands!” the ODA said in a statement.

On February 4th, the group announced its support for the Canadian truckers and said it would begin organizing its own convoy.

OPR reported (translated):

To organize the Convoy of Russia , the ODA calls out to everyone, not only truckers, but also to all caring people in the regions of the country for further unification in order to use their right to achieve the goals of the Convoy, to openly express their will, their disagreement with the blatant violation of fundamental rights person. Namely:
– abolition of compulsory vaccination, in any of its manifestations;
– the elimination of digital slavery and its implementation. 

Sergey Vladimirov, head of the OPR, was interviewed on February 8th about the current status of the convoy.

Edward Slavsquat, a Moscow-based writer, noted these highlights from the interview on his Substack:

“If a sufficient number of people gather a sufficient number of truckers supporting people, then the convoy can take place. But we must understand that we have one big difference between Canada and Russia. Firstly, the repressive pressure in Russia is much more serious than in Canada. Secondly, truckers in Russia are not so affected by this story with restrictions at the moment, because in our country, all the strictness of the laws is compensated by their non-compliance.”

“Toll roads are being expanded, that is, there are more and more of them, the price of fuel is rising and so on. All this very much hits the pocket of both the trucker and the ordinary citizen in general, and as a citizen, since this whole story affects prices.”

“There is now a severe shortage of drivers, it is not even only in our country, it is happening all over the world, but in our country now it is already clearly visible. There are not enough professionals… The cars are parked because they can’t find drivers.”

It’s interesting Vladimirov notes how non-compliance has softened the severity of Russia’s COVID decrees. Your humble Moscow correspondent agrees with this assessment, although it’s important to recognize enforcement measures vary from region to region.

For example, in Volgograd, Andrei Purshev, an OPR representative, told local media at the end of January:

There is a stratification, a division of society into vaccinated and unvaccinated, between QR-coded and ordinary people. The situation is very tense… This is especially noticeable in public transport. People without a mask are attacked.

We’ll keep an eye on the OPR and report any convoy developments.
