The White Helmets, together with terrorists, have chosen 22 families with children, as well as orphans kidnapped from refugee camps to participate in their staged filming.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on White Helmets and chemical attacks in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77488&date= euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77353&date=

Earlier, pro-Kremlin disinformation has claimed that both the 2017 attack in Khan Sheikhoun and 2018 in Douma were faked. UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Background:

On 7 April 2018, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

According to the World Health Organisation, during the shelling of Douma on Saturday, an estimated 500 patients presented to health facilities exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2018/chemical-attacks-syria/en/

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

A network of US military laboratories deployed across Georgia to deal with biological weapons

The lab in Georgia is nothing else but “a military biological base of the US Army on Georgian soil”.

//

US-funded medical facility, known as the Richard G. Lugar Center for Public Health Research, in Georgia could be a cover for a bioweapons laboratory.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that the US/the West is building biological laboratories in the Caucasus region in order to use them as a test site https://euvsdisinfo.eu/shock-conspiracy-chemical-attack/ euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77462&date=

There was no Russian occupation in Georgia

A host of TV Obiektivi, Valeri Kvaratskhelia, denied the occupation of Georgia by Russia: “When you are asked a question about occupation, why do not you answer straightly that there has been no such thing as occupation? There is not even a hint of occupation.”

“If we recognize that Abkhazia and Ossetia are occupied by Russia, then the remaining part of Georgia is occupied by Americans. They are everywhere. They rule Georgia”, said Kvaratskhelia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Georgia being allegedly occupied by the US.

Georgia is a sovereign country. Many international organizations condemned the occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the OSCE statements here and here and European Parliament's declaration.
