Disinfo: Pro-Turkish Soros wants to appoint a president in Karabakh

Summary

Soros supported Ankara during the Russian-Turkish conflict. It was also the position of the West. And Soros is one of the main tools of that West. Soros forms a coalition government in Armenia; Now Soros wants to appoint a president in Karabakh.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence given. This is an attempt to discredit one of the presidental candidates before the elections. Soros has been accused (without evidence) of a wide range of sins such as: destabilising Europe, organising colour revolutions, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film "the Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions.

These narratives portray George Soros and his foundation as villainous and bent on destroying Armenia and other countries by threatening national values. Read similar cases claiming that the Soros foundation is organising clashes in Armenia and serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood and that Armenia is occupied by Soros, that Soros’ “Army of Grant Eaters” is a threat to Armenian national security or how Soros’ office involvement in active transgender propaganda.

Coronavirus was created in a laboratory

Coronavirus is created in a laboratory. “COVID-19 has been “collected” from the bat coronavirus, snake coronavirus and the glycoprotein component of HIV. Such a combination cannot occur in nature. The United States should allow international observers to enter its laboratories. Оtherwise, they would be the first to be suspected of developing the coronavirus. There are well known laboratory-borne infections like avian flu, coronavirus, Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theories that echo pro-Kremlin disinformation about coronavirus. The narratives also resemble a recurring conspiracy theory about the Lugar Lab in Georgia.

There is no evidence that SARS, MERS, or avian influenzas were created in laboratories.

The White Helmets are storing toxic chemicals

White Helmets are storing toxic chemicals at its headquarters under the supervision of Turkish and American intelligence agents.

Disproof

A recurring narrative about White Helmets that routinely accuse the organisation of “working for terrorists”. No evidence is given to support these claims.

The "White Helmets" movement originated in Syria in 2012. The organisation - which is made up of 3,400 volunteers including teachers, engineers, tailors and firefighters - states that it has no affiliation to any political or military actor and is committed to render services to anyone in need. Volunteers save people from the rubble after bombings, despite the danger of dying themselves as a result of repeated airstrikes.

Coronavirus – artificially created biological weapon

If we take each chain separately from what is happening now, then the main thing will become clear – everything is man-made, starting with the coronavirus. And if you invite bioengineers, they will be able to tell how this strain is synthesized. Moreover, it is well known that only one country can do this. And it is the country that has an extensive network of secret biological laboratories around the world, including in Ukraine.

Americans are testing viruses with might and main on our, in fact, compatriots. So they have a full arsenal of biological weapons. What is happening today, we discussed with you a year ago, and two, and three, and four, we all foresaw this. And this manifestation of the US hybrid warfare against the economic sectors they do not control is perfectly understandable and logical.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about coronavirus as a biological weapon against China, also in line with narrative claiming that Americans have secret biological laboratories in many countries. A similar case, claiming that COVID-19 is a part of the hybrid war against China, read here.

No evidence is given. According to the World Health Organization, coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV)A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Researches done so far show that it is a virus named ”zoonotic”, meaning it is transmitted between animals and people. Read more about Coronavirus find here.
