Disinfo: NATO did not help Spain fight coronavirus

Summary

Spain has not received any assistance from NATO in the fight against coronavirus.

Disproof

The statement is not backed up with facts. Read similar cases that the EU refused to help Italy with the coronavirus and that the coronavirus epidemic proves that the EU has abandoned Ukraine.

The coordination and delivery of urgently needed medical supplies, such as personal protective equipment, respirators and test kits, is organised by NATO’s disaster response centre following requests by Allies and partner countries. The Alliance’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC), set up in 1998 to deal with disasters such as earthquakes, floods and forest fires, is now at the forefront of NATO’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, eleven countries, including Spain, have asked the NATO centre for help.

The first country to respond to a request from Spain was the Czech Republic, which sent 10,000 items of personal protective equipment. Then NATO's disaster response centre facilitated Germany's delivery of ventilators to Spain; Turkey has delivered medical supplies to Spain; Luxembourg has donated protective equipment material to Spain.

WHO overestimates the mortality statistics of coronavirus

The World Health Organisation is directly involved in increasing the figures of transmission of COVID-19 and mortality rates of this type of coronavirus. WHO requires doctors around the world to lie in medical history about the causes of death of patients.

Disproof

Disinformation about coronavirus, targeting the World Health Organisation.

The World Health Organisation released classification guidelines for certification and classification of COVID-19 as the cause of death. However, the document does not speak of “forcing mortality rates to rise”. On the contrary, the manual explains in which cases should indicate COVID-19 as the main cause of death, and which ones should not.

Ukraine became a US testing site for developing biological weapons

The statement of the US Embassy that there are American biological laboratories in Ukraine, puts the country in the same basket as Georgia and turns it in a testing ground for development of new types of biological weapons. [Supposedly] these biological laboratories were built “to benefit” Ukrainians. They develop various new viruses and then test vaccines against them on Ukrainians.

It is scary that Ukraine has become a testing ground for the creation and testing of new types of biological weapons.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that the US is building biological laboratories in Eastern Europe, particularly in Ukraine and Georgia. For instance, see this claim alleging that the US experimented on people in Georgia.

Ukraine and the US have signed a partnership agreement to reduce biological threats. "The U.S. Department of Defence’s Biological Threat Reduction Program works with the Ukrainian Government to consolidate and secure pathogens and toxins of security concern in Ukrainian government facilities, while allowing for peaceful research and vaccine development. We also work with our Ukrainian partners to ensure Ukraine can detect and report outbreaks caused by dangerous pathogens before they pose security or stability threats," informs the US Embassy in Ukraine in a recent statement.

George Soros finances organisations that deal with subversive activities

If we analyse the activities of George Soros funds, we see that their main goal is to finance organisations that are engaged in subversive activities: promoting “liberal values”, primarily homosexuality, the fight against Christianity, the massive importation of immigrants who are ethnically and culturally alien to Europe to the population. All this is covered by the beautiful slogans of “open society”, “protection of human rights”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, promoting the pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, claiming that NGO-s and pro-Western political parties are controlled from abroad and follow an agenda established by George Soros or other external ”curators”, aiming to change the political system in the country and destroy national values. See here a similar case claiming that Soros network aims to legalise paedophilia in Romania or a case about how George Soros invests in education to destroy the national spirit.

The Soros Foundation has been working in Moldova since 1992, financing and promoting programmes and activities in areas such as media, justice and human rights, good governance, and public health with the aim to support the development of an open society. Since then, dozens of Moldovan specialists have been employed by the foundation or collaborated in its programmes.
