Disinfo: Coronavirus is the West’s revenge for China refusing to become hostile towards Russia

Summary

The new coronavirus is a comprehensive, multi-factor special operation by UK-US alliance. Brexit and coronavirus are linked because Britain’s exit from the EU allows the UK not to face losses to be inflicted by coronavirus upon the EU. The people in charge of the operation ‘coronavirus’ decide if the virus should spread to Belarus or not.

Since 2013 China has attempted to go away from the strategy imposed by the West, namely the confrontation with Russia. The West boosted China with the aim to throw it against Russia.

To constrain China, thanks to the hysteria around coronavirus and growing Sinophobia, soon the West will start blocking Chinese trade routes and make the presence of Chinese business in Europe more problematic.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory, one of a dozen of other similar cases about the coronavirus, which is consistent with the narrative that the spread of coronavirus is a controlled operation by the US, UK, and the West to weaken China economically. Furthermore, it follows a recurring propagandistic narrative about the West's anti-Russian activities. The claim that the West has been pushing China to wage war against Russia which Beijing ultimately refused to do, is groundless.

The virus migrated from animals to humans, and while the scientists continue to track its origins there is no evidence to suggest it has been made artificially. In response to the outbreak of the coronavirus, 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.

Read previous pro-Kremlin disinformation cases, alleging that Bill Gates is sponsoring the coronavirus, that the Rockefeller foundation owns the patent for Zika virus, and that Hong Kong protests are the West’s revenge on China for not waging war against Russia.

Europe not prepared to admit that Poland and others colluded with Nazi Germany

Russia possesses documents confirming that several European countries, including Poland, engaged in negotiations with Nazi Germany. Europe is not yet prepared to admit this part of its history: that Poland and other European countries colluded with Nazi Germany. Moreover, Lipski, the Polish ambassador to the Third Reich, had promised to erect a monument to Adolf Hitler for the Führer’s plan to deport Polish Jews to Africa.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that attempts to relativise and erode the disastrous historical role of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact by stating that other countries signed various international agreements with Adolf Hitler throughout the 1930s and that Poland was an ally of Nazi Germany. The article also contains the recurrent disinformation message that accuses Poland of anti-Semitism.

The claim that Poland was “an ally of Nazi Germany” goes against all available historical documents. It is impossible to compare the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact of 1934 with the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, as the former was a standard international agreement aimed at the mutual recognition of borders and a declaration that existing political conflicts would be solved through diplomatic tools. There is no historical evidence that this pact contained any secret protocols which assumed common aggressive actions of Germany and Poland against third parties.

Terrorists and the White Helmets plan false flag attacks in Syria

Syrian terrorists are, together with the NGO White Helmets, preparing false flag attacks, using poisonous materials. According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, unidentified personnel travelled to the Idlib region with three tanker lorries with canisters of chemical substances, escorted by armed terrorists,

 

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative, portraying the White Helmets as a Western-backed terrorist proxy and, implicitly, denying the responsibility of the Assad regime for chemical attacks perpetrated during the Syrian civil war.

Read similar cases claiming that the White Helmets were involved in the production of videos of staged “chemical attacks” and that the White Helmets have close links to Al-Qaeda and falsify chemical attacks evidence.

Coronavirus is a Western tool to attack Chinese economy

The UK and US benefit from the situation around the coronavirus. They intentionally hype the threat and stir up a panic around the coronavirus, provoking a rise of Sinophobia. The virus must mostly have an artificial, man-made origin, and the way the Western media report about it points at this version. It is no coincidence that it came up at a time of second round of US-China negotiations and Brexit. The UK is becoming a new global actor, the new dawn of the British empire begins.

Given that China proclaimed its own course in contradiction to West’s, soon China may experience much larger economic problems stemming from the coronavirus infection. Chinese postal deliveries may be threatened which will bring colossal losses to China. The World Health Organization may also announce an epidemiological danger coming from China. This will result in further deterioration of China’s international image, panicking at Chinese stock exchange markets, a blow to Chinese currency and possible political escalation.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory, one of a dozen of other similar cases about the coronavirus, which is consistent with the narrative that the spread of coronavirus is in the interest of the US, UK, and the West to weaken China economically.

The virus migrated from animals to humans, and while the scientists continue to track its origins there is no evidence to suggest it has been made artificially. The claims implicating the UK and US media in stirring up panic and Western plans to harm Chinese postal deliveries and the country's economy through the World Health Organization are also groundless.
