Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives claiming that global secret elites have orchestrated the coronavirus pandemic and are exploiting it to increase their wealth, to establish new forms of authoritarian or totalitarian control over the masses, and to achieve other objectives. The article's message is also consistent with Big Pharma conspiracy theory and with anti-vaccine narratives.
It is not true, as the article claims, that the pandemic is “fake” (as claimed in the title of the article) and has been “orchestrated” to achieve the hidden economic and political objectives of “global élites”. The pandemic is not “fake”: it is a real, global health emergency that has caused millions of deaths worldwide due to the Sars-CoV-2 virus.
The article’s claim that the pandemic was “orchestrated” to increase the profits of “Big Pharma” and to establish authoritarian forms of social control over the masses in democratic nations is a conspiracy theory that lacks any supporting evidence.
The so-called Big Pharma conspiracy theory did not emerge with the COVID-19 emergency but has a longer history. The narrative of Big Pharma profiteering at the expense of public interests and public health by deliberately obscuring viable cures or creating viruses is one of the main conspiracy theories of the COVID era.
It is also not true, as the article suggests, that Western government’s anti-COVID measures have led to the collapse of democracy and the establishment of authoritarian social control. Such emergency provisions - such as the temporary limitations of freedom of movement and social distancing - are tools that democratic governments need to use, for a limited period of time, in order to effectively protect the public health of citizens.
The article’s claim that vaccines are unsafe and release variants is also not true. This claim has been disproven. Vaccines are safe and effective in containing the pandemic, and in protecting against the most serious effects of the virus. Here is an explanation from the World Health Organisation (WHO) about vaccine efficacy and effectiveness parameters.
Although there can be adverse reactions to vaccines, the most common of these adverse reactions are mild and temporary. Serious adverse reactions are considered rare, according to publicly available, monitored and investigated data on vaccine-related issues. Vaccination data are publicly available and updated on government platforms such as those of the United States, Canada and Europe.
The article suggests that the pandemic also serves a “darker” agenda, beyond Big Pharma profits and authoritarian control, hinting that this agenda could be the reduction of the world’s population. The “depopulation conspiracy theory” has a long history and is now being exploited and spread in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
