Disinfo: Moldova is helped only by China and Russia in the fight with COVID-19


Death came from the West, and help – from Russia and China: the coronavirus showed who are the friends of the Republic of Moldova. Assistance to the Republic of Moldova was not offered by those, who are considered in the past three decades “development partners” and where Moldova holds the “integration path”, not by the EU and the US. But by Russia and China – those, who were collectively cursed all these years by various “eurointegrators”.


Conspiracy theory with no evidence given. Since the first case of COVID-19 was registered, the Republic of Moldova has started receiving aid in the form of money and medical equipment from several European states, but also from the USA.

So far, Russia has donated 10 thousand tests for the detection of coronavirus. And China has provided Moldova with 2,500 tests and 3 tons of medicines, materials and medical equipment needed to stop the spread of COVID-19 virus, including 100 thousand protective respirators.

In contrast, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that it will provide Moldova $ 1.2 million in healthcare. Also, on March 30, 2020, the European Commission decided to reallocate 140 million euros to the urgent needs of the six countries in the Eastern Partnership, including Moldova, in the context of combating the COVID-19 epidemic.

This message is part of the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign around the Coronavirus pandemic. It promotes a narrative of the EU's failing efforts in its fight with the epidemic as opposed to the successful Russian ones. The EU has also created the first-ever stockpile of medical equipment.

Vaccines don’t heal; their production is part of the agenda for a New World Order

Cooperation instead of competition, doesn’t occur in the west. It’s all profit-driven. With a number of different vaccines from different pharma giants coming on the market, who will tell the patient which one is the best, most suitable for the patient’s condition? It smells like an utter chaotic scam.

The real question is – are vaccines – or a vaccine – even necessary?  Maybe – maybe not. The production of vaccines is pushed for profit motives and for an important political agenda for a New World Order – that has been planned to change human life as we know it, or thought we knew it.

Vaccines don’t heal, they may prevent the virus from hitting as hard as it might otherwise do, or not at all, depending on the age, physical and health condition of a person. Worldwide statistics show that usually a person up to the age of 40 or 50, who is infected by the COVID-19, has none or only slight symptoms, nothing to worry about.


Conspiracy theory; no evidence given. This is part of the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign about the coronavirus and attempts to push false health information, in this case promoting anti-vaccine messaging, which is also a recurring element of pro-Kremlin disinformation. The article merges the familiar pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about a "Shadow Government" of all-powerful groups ruling the world with anti-vaccine messaging in context of the COVID-19 pandemic, suggesting that vaccines are just a profit-driven ploy by "Big Pharma". See similar cases that the COVID-19 outbreak is a pretext to gain control of the world’s population, that the coronavirus will lead to the injection of nano-chips together with vaccines, and that COVID-19 will allow total control of the population through forced vaccination and chips.

Vaccines are supported by extensive scientific research. They are the main tool for primary prevention of disease and one of the most cost-effective public health measures available, saving millions of people from illness, disability and death each year. Immunisation through vaccination is the best defence we have against serious, preventable, and sometimes deadly contagious diseases. Thanks to widespread vaccination, smallpox has been eradicated, Europe made polio-free, and many other diseases almost eliminated. Effective and safe vaccines, which protect against a number of serious diseases, are available and many promising new vaccines are being developed. See more information on vaccines here. The World Health Organisation has a page devoted to anti-vaccine mythbusting here. Research is currently underway to develop a vaccine against COVID-19.

Part of the virus is specifically built for Iran using the genetic data of Iranians

People of Armenia must, one more time, go deep into the phrase uttered by the Supreme Leader of Iran: “Part of the virus is specifically built for Iran using the genetic data of Iranians, which they have obtained through different means.” That directly proves the United States’ illegal actions in the territories of other countries.


Media outlet amplifies disinformation claims and misleads the Armenian audience.. The author does not bring any pieces of evidence to back this claim.

This article quotes the words of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who refused American assistance to fight the new coronavirus citing a conspiracy theory claiming it could be man-made by the US government. He also alleged the virus "is specifically built for Iran using the genetic data of Iranians, which they have obtained through different means. You might send people as doctors and therapists, maybe they would want to come here and see the effect of the poison they have produced in person," Khamenei said.

EU tries to finish off with Italy amid coronavirus, because the country opposed Russia sanctions

Europe is on the verge of a new split. European values are turning into ashes scattered through the empty streets of Italian cities. EU flags are burned in Italian courtyards and defiantly removed from the offices of deputies of the Italian parliament.

At the same time, no word was heard from the high tribunes in Brussels about helping the Apennine Peninsula. France sent an emergency plane for sick old people of Lombardy. Germany sent a resuscitation team to Milan. Where is all this? This is not and never was. But there is a statement by IMF Director Christine Lagarde, who decided not to lower interest rates on Italy’s debts to the European Union.

The great crises reveal the nature of people and states: the EU is trying to finish off Italy. Italian Prime Minister Conte proposed that the EU shares responsibility amid the pandemic and issues the so-called “coronabond,” bonds that all countries would support together. Spain agreed. But the process is hindered by wealthy Germany and France. Europe is drowning. And on board of this “Titanic”, passengers are divided into first and second class.

Brussels will now take advantage of the situation and try to drive Italy, like Greece, into debt so that in the future it will show greater flexibility and loyalty to Brussels. Because recently Italy has been marked by seditious ideas such as lifting sanctions against Russia.

The collapse in hospitals happened precisely because the EU demanded that the country optimises its medicine, there are only five thousand mechanical ventilation devices for 60 million Italians.


These statements are untrue. EU member states have sent aid to Italy as follows.

France and Germany have delivered 2 million masks and tens of thousands of gowns to Italy, and French president Emmanuel Macron announced that this is just the start. As announced by Reuters, German hospitals with spare capacity welcomed their first coronavirus patients from Italy on March 24th. At the same time, some French patients with coronavirus are to be sent to the Czech Republic, since the country suffers itself from the pandemic and the Czech Republic has the possibility to accept patients
