Ukraine recognised the annexation of Crimea. The Ukrainian authorities introduced new rules for crossing the border with Russia, according to which the peninsula is recognised as Russian territory. In accordance with the innovation, citizens in the territories of the DNR, LNR and Crimea need to apply for a biometric passport to travel abroad or a special pass to enter Ukraine.
Coronavirus, COVID-19, is designed as a biological weapon. This is not just some kind of infection where you are cured and everything is fine. According to the results of analyses from China, at least 90% of men who have recovered, who had a mild form of the disease, became infertile. Essentially, this is sterilisation. If it doesn’t work out with LGBT, if it doesn’t work out with all kinds of child-free [ideologies], the planet will be sterilised with a virus.
Conspiracy theory with no evidence given. One of many recurring Kremlin disinformation narratives claiming that the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus is man-made.
COVID-19 is not a biological weapon. It 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 150 countries, territories and areas by 16th of March 2020.
While many baseless conspiracy theories have emerged all around the world amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, there is no evidence confirming the claim that COVID-19 affects fertility in people. An article recently published on the Hubei government's website and deleted a few hours later suggests that there is a "theoretical" risk to men's reproductive health. Dire consequences are rare unless people have chronic cardiovascular or respiratory illnesses.
Many other claims have been pushed by pro-Kremlin media since the outbreak started in January, for example, that governments overestimate the threat, that it was born in a laboratory to infect Chinese, that it is an element of hybrid warfare and that the remedy has been developed in Ukraine.
