Disinfo: British House of Commons considers coronavirus a blessing

Summary

The coronavirus crisis revealed the difference in the perception of humanity between the West and China. The deliberations of the House of Commons controlled by the Conservative Party sparked a Malthusian view of the crisis, who thought the world’s population increases faster than food resources and thus saw the future of humankind threatened.

What took place in the House of Commons shows that there are those who consider Corona’s epidemic a blessing to reduce the world’s population. Since China is the most populous country, reducing the size of the population in China and the world may be a positive factor. This is racism par excellence where the life of a white man is more important than that of a man with a different colour of skin.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation narrative claiming that the West is plotting a Malthusian conspiracy to reduce the global population.

This article involves a number of false claims provided with no evidence or proper reference to the mentioned incidence that the House of Commons is thinking positively of the population reduction prospects caused by the coronavirus; it is unclear if any such discussion has any basis in reality. The article also reached a conclusion that British lawmakers think positively at the possibility of mass deaths in China, and are, therefore "racist par excellence". The article conveniently papers over the fact that people from all backgrounds will be affected by the pandemic. For example, so far Europe and the Americas have been the regions with the highest number of deaths.

Please see similar cases that the US power elite is using coronavirus to reduce the global population, that the coronavirus is a pretext for the global elites' ambitions to reduce world population, and that the coronavirus is a US biological weapon to reduce the planet's population.

NATO declares that Ukraine will be supported as an anti-Russian country

A report of NATO says that everything within the Alliance is as usual. There is a paragraph which declares that Ukraine will not become a member of NATO but it will be additionally trained and supported to stay an anti-Russian country.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO threatening or encircling Russia.

The Annual Report for 2019, to which Russian media refer, does not mention that Ukraine will be supported as an anti-Russian country nor that Ukraine will not become a member of Alliance. The report briefly describes NATO's cooperation with Ukraine throughout 2019 and reiterates that "Allies remained firm in their support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity."

Coronavirus is man-made

For China, it has been exposed to the Coronavirus virus in the Chinese city of Wuhan since the fall of 2019, specifically after the Military Olympics in that city. Chinese leaders consider that the epidemic was introduced to China by the American military delegation participating in these games. This entry might be a coincidence after the virus was engineered in a US military laboratory without taking the necessary precautions if the Chinese leadership wanted not to assume bad faith on the part of the Americans.

What strengthens the Chinese allegation is the recognition by Robert Radfield, the director of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), that a number of infections were discovered in the United States before they spread to China. But there is another account that says that the virus was French-made (made in 2003) and was transferred to a Sino-French joint laboratory that opened in 2017 in the city of Wuhan. Bats were experimented with, but one of the bats escaped from the laboratory and the epidemic occurred. However, regardless of the accounts and their accuracy, it has become clear that the greatest possibility is that the virus is man-made and not natural, and therefore open questions about bacterial experiments in laboratories and their feasibility and the possibility of turning them into a weapon of mass destruction.

Disproof

A recurring conspiracy theory that echo pro-Kremlin disinformation about coronavirus being man-made.

The current coronavirus (2019-nCoV) comes from a family of viruses that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. The identity of the animal source of the coronavirus, named nCoV-2019, has been one of the key questions for researchers. Coronaviruses are known to circulate in mammals and birds, and scientists have already suggested that nCoV-2019 originally came from bats. One of the previous coronaviruses that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, spread from bats to civet cats to humans.

At the times of the coronavirus pandemic the EUMM helps Tbilisi to violate the border with South Ossetia

The Tbilisi regime is using the corona virus pandemic to exacerbates the situation on the state border [with South Ossetia].

On the night of March 22-23, the Georgian side, with the active support of the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM), used three balloons and one light UAV to conduct optical reconnaissance over the South Ossetian territory, positions of the South Ossetian KGB and border patrols of Russian FSB.

While Russia provides humanitarian and medical assistance to Italy in the fight against the coronavirus, the EUMM, with its mandate, actually covers up the irresponsible activities of the Georgian security forces, which aim to complicate the functioning of the state border between South Ossetia and Georgia and create additional security threats.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the EU's Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM).

The EUMM was deployed immediately following the war between Russia and Georgia in 2008. Its mandate is to support the restoration of ordinary life, to prevent a return to hostilities, to build confidence among the conflict parties and to inform about EU policy.
