Disinfo: Anglo-Saxons changing the rules and cancelling globalisation because China began to win

Summary

China won globalisation which made the Anglo-Saxons change the rules of the game because they cannot allow the Chinese to lead. The Anglo-Saxons decided to totally destroy the model of globalisation and to start from scratch, and this was basically implemented. The globalisation model was torn to pieces and we returned to the Westphalia system.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory aimed at discrediting the West and the so-called Anglo-Saxons. In the pro-Kremlin media, the term “Anglo-Saxons” means “evil”, “belligerent” and “morally corrupt” Westerners, as explained in our earlier analysis.

There are no grounds to believe that Anglo-Saxons crashed the globalisation system in order to prevent China's global leadership.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that coronavirus is the West’s revenge for China refusing to become hostile towards Russia, and that coronavirus is a Western tool to attack the Chinese economy.

Konev’s monument in Prague was removed with the aim to insult Russia

Apparently, the transfers of Soviet war memorials in Poland, the Bronze Soldier in Tallinn or removal of Konev’s monument in Prague are not about domestic affairs but about the wish to insult Russia and provoke its emotional reaction. Instead, the Russian state started calmly and decisively to respond. Russian society’s emotions concerning these actions are similar to the ones that Islamists provoked upon destroying Buddha monuments in Afghanistan.

Disproof

This is a false claim and one of several disinformation cases about the statue of Marshall Konev in Prague. It is also consistent with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Russophobia and the supposedly hostile anti-Russian intentions of the West, based on which Russia can cast itself as the victim.

The democratically elected municipal council of Prague 6 voted for the removal of the statue. Using the protocol of the Politbureau's assembly, Czech historians established that on 8-14 May 1968 Konev chaired the Soviet military delegation sent to Prague to prepare the military invasion of Czechoslovakia. Konev was also chief of the Soviet troops in East Germany during the Berlin wall crisis in 1961. In other words, the Red Army brought not only liberation but also the terror to Czechia, as the mayor of Prague 6, Ondřej Kolář, reminded.

Sooner or later, Americans will have to choose between freedom or a vaccine with a microchip

In order to return to normality, a possible requirement, besides social distancing, will be mandatory participation in a global vaccination programme, underwritten by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Big Pharma and many other supposed “philanthropists”. Efforts to introduce a vaccine containing nanotechnology to “mark” and keep those injected under surveillance received a big boost, with Bill Gates at its head.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence provided to support the claim. This is a mix of a long-established conspiracy theory about a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world (a formulation that aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions) with bogus narratives against billionaire Bill Gates and attacking vaccination programmes. They also fit into an ongoing disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Some elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications and by the European External Action Service.

EUvsDisinfo database has a long set of Kremlin-linked disinformation cases on the Shadow Government and coronavirus, such as claims that Covid-19 vaccines will lead to Full Spectrum Dominance by the Deep Dark State; that vaccine production is part of the agenda for a New World Order; that the coronavirus pandemic is being exaggerated in order to turn countries into fascist hygiene dictatorships; that the Covid-19 outbreak is not about a virus but about power; or that those who survive the pandemic will be poisoned this way for population reduction purposes.

Anybody dying today is listed as a victim of the pandemic

Anybody dying today with even a trace of Corona virus in their system is automatically listed as a victim of the pandemic, so publicly cited statistics could be made to look more intimidating.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

There is no evidence to suggest that the statistics about COVID-19 cases and mortality rate are manipulated to exaggerate the numbers. The World Health Organisation has recently issued  classification guidelines for certification and classification of COVID-19 as the cause of death.
