Disinfo: Coronavirus is a colour revolution technology

Summary

The current coronavirus pandemic can be compare to the technology of “colour revolutions.” In fact, the same technology is being worked out, but with different materials. We get the same technology and the hysteria around it. The training manual is a little bit different, but we see the same signs, the same blanks, and even the same goals. The goal is not to change only one country but the world order to suit someone’s interests. Now, this technology is being developed on a global scale and this is the main problem. We are faced with a new type of weapon of mass destruction, a psychological weapon that affects hundreds of millions of people. It doesn’t affect the lungs, it affects the brain and makes people an ordinary dumb herd, the cattle that run where they are told to run.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. One of many recurring Kremlin disinformation narratives claiming that the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus is man-made. Consistent with a narrative suggesting that the West is using biological weapons to stage "colour revolutions" in other countries.

COVID-19 is not a biological weapon and it was not developed as an instrument to provoke "colour revolutions". A recent analysis of the genome sequence of SARS-CoV-2 virus found no evidence that it was developed artificially in a lab or otherwise engineered. Most probably the disease originated in a Wuhan wet market. The virus comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading across the world, with cases being reported in 168 countries, territories and areas by 19 March 2020.

Many other claims have been pushed by pro-Kremlin media since the outbreak started in January, for example, that COVID-19 is a biological weapon to make planet's population infertile, that it was born in a laboratory to infect the Chinese, that it is an element of hybrid warfare and that it is a pretext to introduce tyranny by the ruling class.

There is no solution for the Ukraine. None whatsoever.

There is no solution for the Ukraine.  None whatsoever.

So what could happen next?

The basic ingredients are pretty predictable: protests, civil unrest, violence and, eventually, a break-up of the Ukraine into several entities.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Ukraine is a failed, disintegrating state with no sovereignty and under Western control.

Refering to Ukraine as "The Ukraine" is offensive, suggesting Ukraine's colonial dependence.

Zelenskii is unable to handle the Ukronazis

Zelenskii has proven to be a total ZERO.  Simply put, neither he not his team can get anything done, anything at all. Nothing, nothing at all.

While initially the victory of Zelenskii seem to indicate that the Ukronazis had suffered a crushing defeat, it now is completely obvious that Zelenskii lacks the will, or the means, or both, to tackle this huge problem.  Now the Ukronazis are back in force, they provoke Zelenskii on a daily basis, but the man is simply unable to react and reassert his authority.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives painting the 2013-14 Ukrainian revolution as a coup d'etat, and Ukrainian politics as dominated by fascist/Nazi groups and ideology.

The Euromaidan was not a coup but a nationwide popular protest against the government's sudden announcement that it would not sign the EU Association Agreement. See the full debunk here.

US uses fascist instruments to control satellite countries

The United States has established a system of world domination, and the United States uses fascist and Nazi instruments to control its satellite countries. To this end, ethnic conflicts are specifically fomented and they [the US] are trying to bring these countries to war. For example, it set up Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia in 2008, killing hundreds of Ossetians there and committing genocide.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. It is one of many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives alleging that the US is behind the so-called colour revolutions around the world. It is also consistent with a narrative denying any role for Russia in the Russo-Georgian 2008 war, and presenting it instead as a conflict between South Ossetia and Georgia. See related disinformation claims alleging that the US was behind the public protests in Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia, France, Georgia, Venezuela, and Russia.

The European Union reiterates its firm support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders.
