Disinfo: Russia is always working on accurate implementation of UN resolutions

Summary

Through the strict and accurate implementation of UN resolution to resolve issues and international conflicts, which primarily guarantees the interests of the peoples of these countries, Russia has insisted during the last period on the necessity to activate the role of the United Nations.

Disproof

Russia is the subject of a series of UN General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions, and the history of respecting these resolutions, especially the ones related to Ukraine, tells another tale.

Just to name a few:

Article 2, paragraph 4 of the UN Charter declares without ambiguity that "all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations". Whereas a year after the illegal annexation of Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted his plan to annex Ukrainian territories.

The UN resolution 2202 (2015) pointed out on Peaceful Settlement in Eastern Ukraine by calling on all parties to fully implement the “Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements”, in which most of the measures depend heavily on Russia and its proxies.

UN Resolution 68/262 condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, and affirm the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders.

The General Assembly adopted on 17 December 2018 a resolution urging the Russian Federation to withdraw its military forces from Crimea and end its temporary occupation of Ukraine’s territory without delay.

COVID-19 is a mixture of coronavirus and HIV

What happened with the coronavirus confirms that it is manufactured, abnormal and a mix between old coronavirus components that do not infect humans and parts of the HIV virus, with the aim of producing a vaccine.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus. There is no evidence to suggest that the virus was man-made inside laboratories, let alone that it is a pretext for enforced vaccination, which is another common conspiracy theory about COVID-19. For example, the medical Journal “Emerging Microbes & Infections” specifically says there is “No credible evidence supporting claims of the laboratory engineering”.

The claim that the COVID-19 contains artificially-introduced insertions from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), thereby proving it is man-made, is based on a preprint of a research study uploaded to bioRXiV on 2 February 2020. The paper, titled "Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag", has not been peer-reviewed and was soon withdrawn by the authors after the study received extensive criticism from other scientists and the genetic information that had matched turned out to be common in many other organisms.

Protests in the US are organised by the Democratic party ahead of the presidential election

All of this is very similar to Maidan in Kyiv, when football hooligans trained specifically for street riots are released by the authorities of 34 states. And those are the US Democrat authorities. This is just one form of pre-election race.

[…]

The democrats gave a command to start and everything blew up. Everything is actually well organized, trucks are bringing bricks, the food is provided. Everything is like in Maidan.

 

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation about the US racial justice protests and Euromaidan.

The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25th of May, 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. There is no evidence to suggest that the latest wave of protests is pre-arranged or that the US Democratic party is directly involved.

Ethnic weapons have already been created

As it turned out at the end of last year, American laboratories in Armenia, together with the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) are engaged in the study of the Armenian genotype. The project is financed by NATO, the Pentagon, and the EU. The information is extremely alarming. Pentagon “biologists” have all strains of local pathogens of infections and viruses, which makes it possible to develop biological weapons.

(According to a former member of the UN Biological Weapons Commission I. Nikulin,) “In fact, ethnic weapons have already been created. At least, bird flu clearly hits the Chinese, SARS – the Europeans, the virus, for example, Ebola, Marburg – the Africans. The outbreaks of various epidemics since these laboratories appeared on the borders of the Russian Federation are ten times greater than the period when they were not there.”

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the development of biological weapons by the United States. The conspiracy about US biolabs in countries bordering Russia aiming to encircle Moscow and spread infectious diseases is a part of a years-long disinformation campaign led by the Kremlin. It is also consistent with the Pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against biological laboratories in Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine and other countries. There is no evidence to claim that the US is developing biological weapons. There is also no evidence to support the claim that partnering biolabs under the agreement have become epicentres for the spread of infectious diseases or have been used to attack populations.

The project in question is the Armenian Genome project. This is a joint initiative of the Institute of Molecular Biology of Armenia and New Ventures Funds. The project seeks to increase the amount of genetic research in the field of healthcare and has nothing to do with the creation of biological weapons.The project is not financed by the EU, NATO, or the Pentagon and did not start yet.
