Disinfo: Coronavirus is another biological war against China and Iran

Summary

The Coronavirus may be caused by a US biological attack that targeted China first and then Iran.

There are great scientists who confirmed this concept (biological attack), including the Russian biological scientist Igor (Nikulin) who emphasised that this is not a normal virus and was formulated in laboratories.

The US has 25 dangerous laboratories surrounding China, Russia and Iran.

Even in American films, we see that the American administration carries about experiments and testing on Americans themselves.

It’s quite possible that Europe and America will gradually reveal the fact that they already possess a vaccine (for the Coronavirus), but are just waiting for the price to be raised in order to make more money by using it later on commercially. 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the coronavirus.

See related disinformation cases alleging that the coronavirus is a plot against China, that the West has a cure for the coronavirus , that it is an artificial disease which specifically targets Chinese DNA, that it was created by American secret labs with economic goals, that some American movies have revealed what is happening behind “the secret American doors”.

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 the 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.

Norway infringes on the rights of Crimeans

Norwegian MP Hendrik Weber said that the Norwegian authorities are putting pressure on freedom of opinion and do not want to hear the real voices of people from Crimea. He commented on the refusal of the Norwegian Embassy to issue a visa to Russian citizen Aleksandr Mashchenko, a journalist from the Crimea, who was going to attend an international conference about Crimea in Norway.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Crimea.

Norway refused to allow Aleksandr Mashchenko, the representative of the occupying Russian government of Crimea, to enter its territory. He intended to obtain a visa for a visit to Oslo through a “Russian Crimean” passport, which is not recognised in all Schengen countries. The Embassy of Norway did not recognise Mashchenko’s passport, refused to issue a visa and offered him, as a citizen of Ukraine, to use Ukrainian biometric documents instead. At the same time, on February 27, during a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna, the European Union once again emphasised that it would not recognise the occupation of Crimea or the “Russian citizenship” issued by the Kremlin on the peninsula.

The Assange case represents Donald Trump’s capitulation to the Deep State

One thing we learned during Donald Trump’s presidency is that the Deep State is real: during the last three years we have seen it launching plot after plot to get the elections nullified, starting with the false “Intelligence Evaluation” of former CIA director John Brennan about Russia’s involvement in the elections in 2016. One of the things that candidate Trump did to become a target of the Deep State was to praise Wikileaks repeatedly. But then he was elected, and the real tragedy of Trump’s presidency is best represented by his 180-degree turn about Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange, now facing a sentence of 175 years in prison. The same Deep State that Trump is serving by persecuting Assange is the same that is plotting his overthrow.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory with no evidence provided to support any of the multiple claims. It follows several recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, one denying any Russian interference in foreign elections (despite overwhelming evidence, both in the US and in other countries), and another about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called ‘Deep State’ in the United States that, among other things, aims to prevent US reconciliation with Russia.

You can find many examples of the first narrative in the EUvsDisinfo database, such as allegations that neither the US Intelligence Committee report nor the Mueller report found any evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, or that “absurd” accusations against Russia are an attempt to demonise it.
