Disinfo: COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon

Summary

COVID-19 is a dangerous, and in many cases, deadly virus artificially designed to be used against humanity – a biological weapon that has already claimed nearly 2 million lives worldwide and, according to an analysis by the WSJ, puts the actual death toll at more than 2.8 million.

It is very important to note that COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon, its main goals are to reduce the number of human beings, to destroy the economies of countries, to bring them to their knees, to put states and populations in such a state that they see no way out of the situation other than mass vaccination.

Disproof

Disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, biological weapons and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a "Deep state" or a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world.

This is part of a disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.

There is no evidence to support the claim that the coronavirus is a biological weapon. The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) comes from a family of viruses that includes 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, with new cases being reported in more that 200 countries of the world.

Read other similar cases claiming that the US is developing biological weapons in Ukraine and Georgia's Lugar Lab, that Pentagon-funded biological laboratories are involved in the creation of coronavirus and they are a threat to the Armenian nation, that the US prepares biological weapons against Russia, the US is constructing secret biological labs, the Pentagon is working out a biological war strategy in the Baltics, that the coronavirus is a bioweapon brought to Italy by the “Deep State”, that the COVID-19 is a bioweapon created by Soros, Bill Gates and the "Deep state".

Crimea is a legal part of Russia

Crimea is Russia, it has always been, is and will be!

Crimea is a legal part of Russia, and there can be no compromise with Kyiv on this issue. The reunification of the peninsula with Russia took place within the framework of international and Ukrainian laws. Crimea returned to Russia following a referendum in 2014. 96.77% of the inhabitants of the peninsula and 95.6% of the voters of Sevastopol voted for the accession.

Kyiv did not recognise the results of the vote and is making plans to “return” the region. Moscow indicates that the referendum was held in compliance with all international norms and the question of ownership of the peninsula is closed forever.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the annexation of Crimea, claiming that Crimea voted to rejoin Russia through a legal referendum.

No international body recognises the so-called referendum in Crimea. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled “Territorial integrity of Ukraine”, stating that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Democrats suppress dissent and violate human rights in the US

Unlike the pessimistic and frank Republicans, Democrats are characterised by greater hypocrisy about the need to promote democracy and human rights in the international arena, and the importance of this to them, despite their suppression of dissent and their violation of human rights in the United States itself today.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the US democratic Party overturning democracy and human rights, instigating a civil war, and committing mass election fraud.

Although democracy in US and in the entire democratic world today faces multiple and serious challenges and threats, it is not true that the Democratic Party is suppressing peaceful dissent and violating human rights. The Democratic Party is only a political party in a system based on the rule of law where human rights are guaranteed and handled by independent law enforcement institutions like the police and the judiciary.

Pfizer kills, but Sputnik V is blamed: Our vaccine is stuck in the throat of the West

Pfizer kills, but Sputnik V gets the blame. Our vaccine is stuck in the throat of the West.

The West attempts to devaluate the achievements of the Russians. Twitter has restricted the access to the Sputnik V account. The Russian vaccine, that has demonstrated its efficiency, is under a massive information attack, while the deadly Pfizer vaccine is failing.

Disproof

This is part of a disinformation campaign aiming to discredit any Western vaccines.

The claim that the West, in particular, Europe, is attacking Sputnik V vaccine is not supported by evidence. In the past the international media have reported both about the positive results of Sputnik V and international concerns about incomplete clinical trials.
