Some are accusing Russia of promoting fake news. One of the hypotheses circulating intensively these days is that the United States is behind the spread of the coronavirus, as a result of the presence of American laboratories that manufacture this biological weapon, and that the US wants to hit China economically. Russia is accused of propagating this information, and the US State Department issued a statement accusing Russia in this regard .
There is no evidence that this information was invented by Russia. Any information without any evidence or proof is fake news. After analysing the Russian media outlets, blogs and news agency, we did not find any talk accusing the US [of having invented the virus].
