Disinfo: China is preparing to resist a US attack of mass destruction

Summary

China is preparing to resist an attack of weapons of mass destruction. The biggest pharmaceutical companies are in the US, the secret services which use weapons of mass destruction are also in the US. And who do they consider their main adversaries? China and Russia! In countries neighboring Russia there already are labs developing biological weapons,

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

In response to the outbreak of the corona virus the Chinese authorities have placed more than a dozen cities under quarantine. The World Health Organisation is working with Chinese authorities and global experts to learn more about the virus. The virus "2019-nCoV” comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold, and viruses such as SARS and MERS. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed artificially as a weapon of mass destruction.

The conspiracy theory also repeats the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Lugar lab in Tbilisi, Georgia. See more here.

Russophobia is thriving in today’s world

Russophobia is thriving in today’s world. It is now necessary to show that Russians are the same fascists as Hitler, there’s a necessity to erase the heroic deeds of the Soviets. In Poland, the Baltic States, UK, the US we observe closing of Russian schools, accusations of starting the WW2, sanctions – all of it is Russophobia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinfromation narrative about Russophobia. By accusing Western societies of “Russophobia”, pro-Kremlin propaganda outlets downgrade criticism of Kremlin policies and actions to being somehow irrational and not worthy of a serious reply. At the same time, the term tries to turn the tables against the West, which in pro-Kremlin media is often depicted as a place where the fight against intolerance has gone too far.

See previous disinformation cases, alleging that WWII anniversary in Poland is anti-Russian gathering; aggression towards Russia derives from American culture; Russophobic Baltic States are beggars and vassals of the West; Russophobic and Nazi Ukraine will be destroyed by Russia and many more.

Soros’s movements have led to hundreds of thousands of deaths around the world

[Soros’s] movements, as a sort of guarantor that globalists’ interests are realized has led to tens, if not hundreds of thousands of deaths and chaos throughout the world.

A recent and quite vivid example is the situation in Ukraine, where Soros and his partners endorsed the 2014 coup, and then have, despite fighting for liberalism, supported the side of the pro-Nazi Kiev regime.

Prior to that, in 2008, he was involved in supporting the Mikheil Saakashvili government in Georgia, which failed after the attempt at aggression in South Ossetia, despite the MSM [mainstream media] propagated narrative of a Russian invasion.

This newest push, apart from specifically targeting US President Donald Trump’s potential re-election, focuses on Russia, Venezuela and Iran.

Russian general elections are expected to take place in 2021, and presidential elections are coming in 2024. Thus, the “forces of democracy” would need some foreign funding to operate, since that is also the principal reason they function.

Disproof

A unfounded conspiracy theory, attempting to depict expressions of popular discontent all over the world as results of schemes of George Soros and other foreign actors.

Similar narratives unfoundedly claim that Soros’ offices around the world are tools of civil revolutions, that the prime minister of Armenia is destroying countries statehood in line with Soros program, and that Soros been linked to the identity of the anonymous whistleblower of Ukrainegate.

Over 80,000 people froze to death in the US during this winter

There is a big difference between how many people died because of the new coronavirus and how many people froze in the US. Open source data indicates that over 80,000 people froze in the US so far during this winter. However, this might not be a national catastrophe for them, because they do not treat people living on the streets as equal citizens.

Disproof

This statistic is fake and cannot be backed up with available data. No mass cases of people freezing to death in the US during this winter have been reported. Last winter, at least 21 people died in one of the worst cold snaps to hit the US Midwest in decades.

Read earlier cases of fake statistics alleging that the EU countries’ economies are on the brink of default, with over 20% unemployment rates, that in Chile, 10 kilograms of bread costs as much as an average monthly salary, and that 20,000 armed migrants are getting ready to break into the EU.
