Disinfo: Coronovirus is Western operation, the WHO is controlled by Bill Gates


In the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak the US waged an information war against China. Through US-controlled foundations and media, mass hysteria was organised, with the aim of isolating China and attacking its economy. Later on, another virus strain was discovered in Italy but ignorant media continued sowing panic around “Chinese coronavirus.” In addition to fake media reporting about over-crowded hospitals and long lines of ambulances, producers and distributors of surgical masks, disinfectant, lab coats, lung ventilators, toilet paper, etc. also created an inflated demand based on coronavirus speculation. Now companies producing digital equipment for controlling people’s mobility come on up.

The World Health Organisation announced a pandemic although this decision goes in contrast to its own criteria. They say that a pandemic can be announced only if the share of infected people exceeds 5%. This controversy is logical, though, if one takes into account that the WHO is largely, by 75%, financed by international pharmaceutical companies and acts in their interests. Given that the annual returns of pharmaceutical giants have declined over the last years, they found a new business model focused on prevention of disease through vaccination of the population. The problem is that, in many countries, vaccination is voluntary. To overcome this problem and to make vaccination mandatory, the world should be frightened to the extent that people beg to be vaccinated. The WHO completed this mission by announcing a pandemic.

The US refuses to finance the WHO because Donald Trump does not wish to fund Bill Gates’ initiatives. The thing is the US contributions account for 15% of WHO budget, while all the other countries’ contributions stand at an additional 10%. At the same time, Bill Gates’ foundation contributes to 32% of WHO budget, which makes Gates the largest WHO sponsor.


An unfounded coronavirus-related conspiracy theory about WHO and Bill Gates, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about a plot of mighty corporations and US operations to attack China.

The claims concerning the WHO criteria for the announcement of a pandemic and collusion with pharmaceutical companies to drive mass-scale vaccination are unfounded. There is no requirement to have at least 5% of the population infected to announce the pandemic as claimed. Epidemic experts say there are no global criteria. A pandemic is the worldwide spread of a new disease, one of the articles on WHO website says. According to another publication, a classical epidemiological definition of a pandemic says it is “an epidemic occurring worldwide, or over a very wide area, crossing international boundaries and usually affecting a large number of people."

Vaccine hesitancy is identified by WHO as one of the top ten global health threats of 2019. There is an overwhelming scientific consensus about the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

The claim that the Trump stopped WHO funding because of his strained relationship with Gates is unfounded. The decision to halt contributions to WHO was made until a review is conducted over WHO's management of the coronavirus spread.

WHO’s Programme Budget is financed through a mix of assessed and voluntary contributions. Assessed contributions are the dues countries pay in order to be a member of the Organisation. The amount each Member State must pay is calculated relative to the country's wealth and population, the WHO website explains. It is not true that all other countries apart from the US contribute only 10% of WHO funding while Bill Gates' foundation accounts for 32%. In fact, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation accounts for 9.76% of WHO's budget, while other (other than the US) countries' contributions exceed 30% of the WHO budget. Anyway, there no proof that private foundations which sponsor the WHO, impact the WHO's decision-making as they wish.

See similar cases claming that Bill Gates and Co aspire to a reduction in population, that survivors will be poisoned with vaccines, that Covid-19 will allow total control of the population through forced vaccination and chips, that WHO may be involved in a plot to reduce global population, and that the WHO overestimates the mortality statistics of coronavirus.

Coronavirus is a US biological weapon against China, it replaces a nuclear bomb

The coronavirus epidemic revealed a complete failure of the American way of life. The US is facing increasingly frequent assumptions about the Anglo-Saxon origin of the virus, economic crisis and the threat of hunger riots, all threatening to undermine the US hegemonic status. Furthermore, the US has a huge debt to China. Given this, the American political establishment started pointing its finger at China in an attempt to walk away from paying the debts. Hence US senators put forward allegations that COVID-19 could have leaked from Wuhan lab and that Chinese authorities covered up information about the epidemic development. Therefore, they aim at writing off part of the US debt as compensation for the losses associated with the epidemic.

French virologist & Nobel laureate has claimed that the novel coronavirus originated in a lab as it contains HIV sequences. Everything seems to point to the secret development of weapon-like viruses in the leading labs around the world, in the US in the first place, since the early 2000s. Therefore US senators actions look like a thief shouting “Stop the thief!” Russia finds itself as in the Manhattan Project when the USSR had to quickly create nuclear arms to prevent its destruction by the US. Nowadays microbiologists have replaced nuclear specialists. New types of arms come up to the stage, but adversaries remain the same.


This is a mix of conspiracies about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus aimed to present the novel coronavirus as the US / UK biological weapon. It also promotes the disinformation narrative that the US / West is collapsing as a result of the coronavirus crisis. The publication speaks about the so-called Anglo-Saxons. In the pro-Kremlin media, the term “Anglo-Saxons” means “evil”, “belligerent” and “morally corrupt” Westerners, as explained in our earlier analysis.

There is no evidence to suggest that the virus is being used as a weapon against other states or that is was fabricated inside laboratories. The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no credible evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering. The medical Journal “Emerging Microbes & Infections” specifically said there is “No credible evidence supporting claims of the laboratory engineering.” Read the debunk about HIV sequences in COVID-19 here.

Czechia is US’s puppet, removal of Konev’s monument was sanctioned by Washington

The reason behind the removal of Konev’s monument in Prague was the decision taken by the US embassy in Czechia. Americans pointed out to the Czech MFA that Prague should have a place where the WWII victory can be celebrated without paying attention to the USSR’s decisive contribution in the Hitler’s Germany defeat. The US wanted to see the Interbrigady Square, as such place as it is associated with the victory over fascism. Hence amid the coronavirus outbreak Czechs had a go-ahead from Americans to remove Konev’s monument from the selected square. Therefore Czechia is not really independent, its master decides instead. Not to say that Czechia is US’s 51st state, but Prague is sort of Washington’s district.


Conspiracy consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narratives about EU countries as US puppets and the supposedly hostile anti-Russian intentions of the West.

The democratically elected municipal council of Prague 6 voted for the removal of the Konev's statue. Using the protocol of the Politbureau's assembly, Czech historians established that on 8-14 May 1968 Konev chaired the Soviet military delegation sent to Prague to prepare the military invasion of Czechoslovakia. Konev was also chief of the Soviet troops in East Germany during the Berlin wall crisis in 1961. In other words, the Red Army brought not only liberation but also the terror to Czechia, as the mayor of Prague 6, Ondřej Kolář, reminded.

Opposition groups in Belarus, like Satanists, attacked Orthodox church believers

The Orthodox Easter turned out to be complicated for Belarus due to the coronavirus pandemic and outrage by Satanists, who literally shut the road to church for believers and called them to protest against the state authorities instead. Opposition activists, nationalists, bloggers, and journalists played the role of Satanists. They waged a propaganda campaign, harassment and persecution of believers. To choose a square instead of church is akin to replacing the belief in God with serving the devil.


This is a conspiracy consistent with a pro-Kremlin propaganda narrative about the Belarusian opposition's attempts to organise a full-scale split from the Russian Orthodox Church. Often the Belarusian opposition is accused of being funded by the West and therefore its alleged anti-Orthodox activities are presented as attempts by the West to destabilise Belarus and organise a colour revolution there.

A number of political groups, civil activists, bloggers and journalists in Belarus informed about the need for further reduction of physical contact in Belarus to minimise the risks of infection during the epidemic. Belarusian media informed about the Ministry of Health recommendations to avoid attending churches for people with symptoms and to organise Easter services outside churches. Each of three opposition candidates for presidency who were taking part in primaries recorded Easter greetings (1, 2, and 3) and no one harassed or persecuted Orthodox church believers as alleged.
