Disinfo: COVID-19 vaccine will cause more deaths than COVID-19; it is a plot to reduce population


The COVID-19 vaccine has huge negative effects on human health and will cause more illness and death than COVID-19 itself. Side effects of the vaccine include infertility and miscarriage. Despite the well-known dangers of the vaccine and the clear and indisputable failure of the vaccine to protect against the COVID-19 virus, Western governments are pushing ahead with vaccinations.

Why are the authorities imposing vaccination if they know it is harmful to human health? The COVID-19 vaccination campaign could be a plot to reduce the world’s population.


Disinformation about coronavirus, promoting anti-vaccine messaging. The article’s message is also consistent with the conspiracy theory claiming that the COVID-19 pandemic and/or Western COVID-19 vaccines are being exploited by global secret elites with a Malthusian agenda to reduce the global population.

It is not true, as the article claims, that COVID-19 vaccines are more dangerous and deadly than the virus. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and are currently the most effective weapon of prevention and containment of the pandemic. Vaccine-related deaths around the world have proved extremely rare, and most side effects from COVID vaccinations are mild. Vaccination data are publicly available and updated on government platforms such as those of the United States, Canada and the European Union.

The manipulation and misuse of COVID-19 vaccines public data have been repeatedly reported as the basis of anti-vax campaigns supporting the theory that COVID-19 vaccines are as dangerous, or more dangerous, than the virus.

Furthermore, the article’s claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause infertility and miscarriage is not true. According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, COVID-19 vaccines are well-tolerated by people who are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or lactating, further suggesting the benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks. Disinformation claiming that COVID-19 vaccines cause female and male infertility has been largely disproved by specific studies and debunked in the international media, as seen here, here or here.

The article’s claim that COVID-19 vaccines increase the spread of the virus is also not true. One of the individual effects of the vaccine is to reduce the chance of infection, by up to 91% in the case of mRNA vaccines.

Read similar cases claiming that COVID-19 vaccines are more dangerous to most people than the virus itself, that Science doubts the effectiveness of vaccines, that AstraZeneca kills, and that the US power élite is using the coronavirus in order to reduce the world’s population.

Disinfo: Lithuania applies double standards to refugees

Lithuania applies double standards to refugees. People who arrived from Kabul receive full refugee privileges. They are welcome in Lithuania and the EU.

Those who arrived from Belarus will spend winter in the tents behind barbed wire. Almost all got a negative answer about asylum in Lithuania. Now it is just one question: how to kick them out of Lithuania.


This article combines the topic of the migration crisis on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border with that of the evacuation to Lithuania of Afghans who worked with Lithuanian troops.

Over 100 interpreters and their families were evacuated to Lithuania from Afghanistan. These people were in danger of repression from the Taliban due to their collaboration with Lithuanian troops.

Disinfo: Joe Biden's administration uses Russophobia to limit America's gun rights

Joe Biden's administration uses Russophobia to limit America's gun rights. The latest sanctions against Russia go beyond trying to tarnish the image of the country through unproven accusations, they are a clear attack against the Republican Party and the National Rifle Association. As a response to the alleged “poisoning of Alexei Navalny with Novichok”, the Biden Administration imposed a 12-month ban on the “permanent import of fire weapons or ammunitions fabricated or stored in Russia”. As usually happens with US sanctions, no evidence was provided to back the accusations. When it comes to use Russophobia as a geopolitical weapon of last resort, Democrats and Republicans are reading exactly the same script.


Allegations of “Russophobia” are a frequent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative to deflect any criticism for Russia’s illicit actions. In this case, it also aims to frame sanctions by the Biden Administration as a domestic partisan issue against gun rights.

The US imposed additional sanctions on Russia on 20 August 2021 over its use of a Novichok nerve agent in the poisoning of Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny the previous year. And contrary to the claim, these accusations have been proven beyond any doubt.

Disinfo: Crimea Platform was a staged show

A duet of Saakashvili and Zelenskyy put on the show one after the other. "Crimea Platform" is also a show they staged, which was not attended by a single leader of the G7 and G20 countries.


This is an emerging disinformation narrative spread by pro-Kremlin outlets in response to the Crimea Platform Summit, a high-level international conference held in August 2021 that was initiated by Ukraine and focused on Russia's illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

The Crimea Platform summit, held on 23 August in Kyiv, was an international event that established a coordination mechanism to end the occupation of Crimea and guarantee human rights on the peninsula.
