Disinfo: Cancer, syphilis and “Spanish flu” are US biological weapons

Summary

Many Latin America leaders died because of cancer, most of them were against the US policy.

The Nazi specialists were also developing biological weapons and some of them were caught by US special services. Therefore the epidemic of cancer could have been caused by an American biological weapon. The US is also linked to the development of syphilis and “Spanish flu”.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about US developing biological and/or chemical weapons (mostly in order to use them against Russia). See e.g. the Disinfo Review from 4 October 2018.

The Macedonians said “no” to NATO and the EU

On the referendum regarding the new name of their country, the Macedonians said “no” to NATO and the EU.

Disproof

The referendum on changing the name of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) as part of a deal that would pave the way for EU and NATO membership had a low turnout of 37 per cent - but among those who voted it won an overwhelming support. Results showed 91.3 percent of voters approving the deal.

With the support of more than 600,000 citizens in favour of a new country's name, FYROM’s prime minister has now referred the issue to the parliament.
