Disinfo: Belarusian opposition plans genocide with coronavirus-infected, Soros funded, test tubes, given by Pompeo

Summary

George Soros advocates for the reduction of the global population and sponsors related programmes. Soros funded the Belarusian opposition, which hates the Belarusian people and wishes to wage genocide in Belarus and takes part in this mission. They tried to organise revolutions in Belarus in 2006 and 2010 for Soros’ money. Once the opposition gets in power, they will apply their “kill lists” to reduce the population, targeting police, officials, judges, teachers, and others. Recently, Soros started a biological weapon, a test tube with the coronavirus infection. The Belarusian opposition already has it, it was passed on by the US delegation headed by Mike Pompeo. During his visit to Minsk in February, Pompeo met so called civil society which exists thanks to Soros’ grants. Each of the activists received a special gift from Mr. Soros, a coronavirus test tube. From now on, their bank accounts depend not on their popularity but on the number of civil victims. The people should not be panicking though. They should just decide what to do with the enemies and traitors.

Disproof

This is a mix of unfounded conspiracies concerning the coronavirus outbreak aimed to discredit the Belarusian opposition and the US, consistent with recurrent pro-Kremlin narratives about Soros and "secret elites" controlling the global development and Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus. On February 1st 2020, US State Secretary Mike Pompeo indeed visited Minsk and met the Belarusian president and other officials as well as a few Belarusian civil society activists. The accusation that he handed them test-tubes of coronavirus is completely unfounded. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that that coronavirus originated in a laboratory sponsored by George Soros, that the pro-Western Belarusian opposition is preparing a genocide, that the Belarusian opposition, civic activists and independent journalists make kill lists for Western security bodies, and Belarusian opposition leader Andrei Sannikau prepares a coup with US military assistance.

The coronavirus outbreak is a magnificent example of global brainwashing

The wicked social control experiment using virus as the pretext for further enslavement is performing magnificently by implanting a sense of helplessness, dependence, and blind conformism. It should be noted that the favorable atmosphere enabling Them (whoever they are) to accomplish just that was contrived by the controlled and unscrupulous media in under a month of intense, coordinated, global brainwashing.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about "secret elites" controlling world leaders. See related pro-Kremlin disinformation cases about the coronavirus.

The US ambassador was evacuated from Moldova

Diplomats from the US embassy in Moldova and the citizens of the United States were evacuated. More than that, the US Ambassador to Moldova, Dereck Hogan, went overseas on March 16, one day before the state of emergency was announced. Did he know anything?

Disproof

This is a false claim that capitalises on the coronavirus pandemic to spread a conspiracy theory about the US and specifically the US ambassador to Moldova. Spreading conspiracy theories about US in context of the coronavirus has emerged as a recurring theme in the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign around the outbreak. After speculation emerged that Ambassador Dereck J. Hogan was leaving the country, the US Embassy published the following statement on its Facebook page: "The United States Embassy in Chisinau continues to operate. Ambassador Dereck J. Hogan and the Embassy's American and Moldovan staff members remain in Chisinau, working to maintain the strong bilateral relationship the United States and Moldova have enjoyed for years."

Kyiv stops public transport, Nazis are patrolling the streets

Kyiv stopped public transportation except for essential personnel. The local authorities will involve organizations with a membership consisting almost exclusively of Nazis. These “activists” will check the travel permits of Ukrainian citizens, whether they use a mask and their IDs.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about the involvement of Nazis in various layers of Ukrainian public life. In fact, the mayor of Kyiv, Vitaliy Klitschko, said that during quarantine at least two National Police officers and one representative of the “Municipal Guard” would be present in all public transport. “Municipal Guard” was established in 2015 as a public organisation for law enforcement. The mayor of Kyiv, Vitaliy Klitschko, noted that the creation of such a unit is “the first step towards the emergence of the municipal police in the Ukrainian capital.” It was not set up as a right-wing organisation; among its members are veterans who have returned from Donbas and want to help ensure the rule of law in Kyiv. Read similar case claiming that in Kyiv, during the quarantine, the far-right will check transport and documents of citizens.
