Pentagon’s biological experiments worse than ISIS; pose a direct threat to Georgia

Summary

Pentagon’s biological experiments pose a direct threat to Georgia… Laboratories under the Pentagon’s roof are not charity organizations. The big question is, why Americans spend huge amounts of money on microbiological research in a remote and prosperous country in terms of epidemiology. In accordance with the US legislation, American “researchers” in Georgia can prepare for a bacteriological war with complete impunity. Their activities are far more dangerous than ISIS – for Georgia and the rest of the world.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory and a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Lugar Lab in Georgia and US creating biological weapons encircling and targeting Russia.

Richard Lugar Center for Public Health Research is a facility of the National Centre for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC), which became operational in August 2013. The Lugar centre is a top-tiered institution in NCDC’s laboratory network and serves as a reference laboratory of Georgia’s public health system.

Provocation: EU observers violated South Ossetia’s border with Georgia

South Ossetian border control officers stopped the patrol of EUMM that violated the republic’s border with Georgia in the vicinity of Tsneilisi populated area. This was a provocation and inadmissible step on the part of the mission members.

Disproof

The statement is untrue. On October 24, a patrol of the EUMM was held by armed South Ossetian security actors, while conducting a patrol in the Chorchana-Tsnelisi area. EU Monitoring Mission released a statement noting that the incident "happened in an area understood to be on Tbilisi-Administered Territory in accordance with the traditional interpretation of the Administrative Boundary Line in that area."

EUMM mission was deployed immediately following the war between Russia and Georgia in 2008. The mandate is to support the restoration of ordinary life, to prevent a return to hostilities, to build confidence among the conflict parties and to inform about EU policy.

Today it is Halloween, tomorrow it’s a rubber woman

Halloween is a completely artificial holiday, which is accepted because it is fashionable in the West. That is the idiocy. Today it is Halloween, and tomorrow it is a rubber woman. This is unnatural, not normal.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about West's moral decay. Read similar cases claiming that Western males are feminised semi-men and the West is lobbying for perversion.

The tradition of Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honour all saints.

In Syria the White Helmets stage false chemical attacks and are involved in human organ trafficking

In Syria the White Helmets stage false chemical attacks, are involved in human organ trafficking and remove the  organs of the people they claimed to save.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said it found reasonable grounds to believe that chlorine was used as a weapon in the Douma district of Eastern Ghouta, Syria in April 2018. The OPCW Fact-Finding Mission also confirmed use of chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun on 4 April 2017.

The UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for the attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018, Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. In June, the OPCW members granted it power to assign blame for chemical attacks.
