Disinfo: Pentagon develops ethnic biological weapons in the US biolabs in post-Soviet republics


In 2016, the US Department of Defense built a scientific facility in Kazakhstan - the Central Reference Laboratory. This is a facility where they work on very dangerous pathogens and viruses.

At various research facilities, the US specialists are studying the diseases that are characteristic of the population of the region, as well as methods of their spread with the help of animals and insects. The purpose is, firstly, to protect their troops in the event of invasion and occupation of this land, and secondly, to prepare for and conduct a biological war in the Central Asian region.

Former Soviet labs throughout post-Soviet states are now occupied by the Americans. This has happened in Ukraine, Georgia, Uzbekistan and Moldova, and now in Kazakhstan. The US produces very dangerous toxins, bacteria and viruses, in violation of the UN Convention on the Prohibition of Biological Weapons.

Currently, the Pentagon is trying to create an ethnic biological weapon to destroy certain genotypes or ethnic groups. The US collects biomaterials of Russians and Chinese.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US and biological weapons. Consistent with the Pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against biological laboratories in Kazakhstan, Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine and other countries.

The disinformation about US bio labs aiming to encircle Moscow and spread infectious diseases is a part of a years-long disinformation campaign led by the Kremlin. In fact, biological laboratories are involved in preventing the risks of complex diseases and, together with other similar projects, counteracting bioterrorism.

The article does not present any evidence that supports the claim that the US is secretly developing biological weapons in laboratories around the world, thus making unfounded accusations.

The Central Reference Laboratory in Almaty was opened in 2016. Kazakhstan officially denied that its territory is used for the development of biological weapons. Instead, the Central Reference Laboratory helps to fight such kinds of disasters as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This narrative is part of a larger-scale disinformation campaign.

Disinfo: COVID-19: The Americans are testing a new means of enslaving the world

The modern world has implemented some limitations on the Americans. To erase an enemy from the face of the Earth without receiving a thermo-nuclear reply is impossible. The old tricks with manipulation of the prices of oil and the use of terrorists do not work as well anymore. As it has become impossible to wage a world war of the usual kind, it was necessary to come up with something new. And the solution was - viruses. Even serious Western researchers admit openly that someone (not hard to understand who) has been working hard on the already existing coronavirus in laboratories, to make it enough dangerous and contagious, but not too lethal; just enough to harm and scare the world population. As a consequence, the richest and most powerful get richer, while weaker stakeholders will have to sell out their business for peanuts after facing COVID-restrictions.

The shadow-rulers of the world have prepared to use this new and horrible weapon for political reasons for a long time.


An unfounded recurrent conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence. Similar claims are frequent; the EUvsDisinfo database contains over 1.500 examples of conspiracy theories.

Pro-Kremlin media have, ever since the first cases of the COVID-19, attempted to describe the disease as man-made and with military and/or political aims, without any evidence.

Disinfo: The West is rehearsing in Belarus to hit Russia

The West is rehearsing in Belarus to hit Russia. Belarus is now the EU’s punching ball because it is where the EU and NATO are training in the new Cold War.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about encircling Russia, Belarus as an innocent victim of the West and Russia as the ultimate target of international events. By framing it this way, these disinformation messages aim to deflect any criticism on the illicit actions of Russia and its allies, in this case, Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s regime in Belarus.

Contrary to the claim, the EU’s current policy towards Belarus is not a rehearsal to hit Russia but a reaction to the fraudulent nature of the August 2020 presidential elections in the country and the intimidation and violent repression of peaceful protesters, opposition members and journalists, as well as to the forced landing of a Ryanair flight in Minsk in May 2021 that endangered aviation safety and the subsequent detention by Belarusian authorities of journalist Raman Pratasevich and Sofia Sapega.

Disinfo: Russian athletes are forbidden to compete under the Russian flag because of the West's cold war against Russia

Russian athletes will not compete under the Russian flag during the olympics in Tokyo. Their uniforms will not have any symbols, reminding of Russia. Those sanctions are formally introduced because of the doping scandals, but in reality it is a part of the logics behind the West's cold war against Russia.


An unfounded claim, presented without any evidence.

Russia did violate the rules of international sports; organising a state-sponsored system of doping athletes. Russia has failed to set up mechanisms to guarantee that similar schemes are not used.
