Disinfo: Bill Gates seeks to reduce the global population

Summary

Take a look at the Guardian article published 10 years ago: we find out that in 2010 Bill Gates Founded a “Good Club”, together with David Rockefeller, Warren Buffett, George Soros and others. And what was the main problem in the planet, as announced by the club and which they are determined to solve? Of course, it is the overpopulation of the Earth […]

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about Bill Gates.

This TV broadcast misrepresents the Guardian article to advance conspiracy theories. The Guardian indeed reported about the meeting of billionaire philanthropists in 2009. According to the Guardian the meeting was convened "in response to the global economic downturn and the numerous health and environmental crises that are plaguing the globe".

According to the Guardian: " The topics focused on education, emergency relief, government reform, the expected depth of the economic crisis and global health issues such as overpopulation and disease. One of the themes was new ways to get ordinary people to donate small amounts to global issues."

There is no evidence to suggest, as the TV broadcast does, that the global elites are scheming to reduce the global population.

US instigates wars and revolutions to flood Europe with refugees

The United States enters a country and starts bombing it: completely overturns the anthill, creates civil tension, wars, partisan wars, hatred, a huge number of deaths, and in the end, Europeans must accept these refugees. It turns out that this is a definite cynical tool. And now, once again, in the wake of the crisis, it will be possible to start a war somewhere, and from there, NATO will go to Europe… It can all be like a strategy, why not. After stirring up social tension in five different places, in different countries, making revolutions, making Maidans, a million refugees will fall upon Europe.

Disproof

One of many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: alleging that the US is behind the so-called colour revolutions around the world; blaming Western governments for deliberately provoking massive migration flows to Europe; undermining Ukraine's statehood and claiming that the Euromaidan protests were organised by foreign forces.

Previous pro-Kremlin disinformation claim that Obama and Soros were jointly provoking colour revolutions; that Belarus is to become a colony of the West; that gender theories and identity policies are used by the US to bring down disobeying governments and that Ukraine is enslaved to Europe after Maidan.

No evidence of Russian meddling in 2016 US presidential election

When Mueller’s final report came out, in the spring of 2019, it found zero evidence of collusion but insisted there had been Russian meddling in the election. The only trouble was that he had no proof of meddling, basing it entirely on US intelligence community “assessments and his own indictments.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying Moscow's interference in the 2016 US presidential election and, by extension, other well-documented instances of such meddling in Western democracies (see the section on Elections).

The Mueller report is not based on the January 2017 ICA (intelligence community assessment). It arrives at similar conclusions, but is based on its own body of investigative and counterintelligence evidence-gathering. During its two-year investigation, "the [Special Counsel's] Office issued more than 2,800 subpoeanas; [...] executed nearly 500 search-and-seizure warrants; [...] obtained more than 230 orders for communications records; [...] and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses, including almost 80 before a hgrand jury" (Mueller report, p. 13).

It is a lie, that the USSR along with Germany is responsible for the outbreak of the WWII

In the USA and European countries, different statements are made about the role of the USSR in the Victory. Unfortunately, there are attempts to review the results and reasons for the outbreak of war and the role of the USSR in the defeat of fascism in this war. This includes those positions when the USSR, along with Germany, is accused of starting this war. This can be called, nothing other than a lie.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism – it accuses the West of the “falsification and re-writing” of WWII history in order to “minimise the role of the USSR in victory over Nazism” and to “get rid of its share of the blame for the outbreak of WWII”. It is also an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

Both Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR were harsh totalitarian regimes, which directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of people. The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and the condemnation of totalitarian ideologies. Western countries do not question the role of the USSR in the victory over Nazi Germany.
