Criticism of NATO is more and more heard in the West, because of insufficient assistance to member states of the military bloc, for example to Spain and Italy. Experts note the failure of the alliance in a pandemic. It turns out that NATO is fighting only with the far-fetched “Russian threat”. But when it comes to real danger, the bloc shows its inefficiency. Coronavirus has proven the futility of NATO.
What do Taz and Spiegel have in common? Both newspapers can be considered mainstream: well-behaved Russophobes and trusting in the corona regime. At the moment the Basic Law, the basis of state order in Germany, is de facto overruled by a small group of politicians and media owners: the legally guaranteed freedom of assembly is abolished. They (the two publications) rely on the Russophobia that has been common in Germany since Hitler.
No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that portrays any outside criticism of Russia as a symptom of Russophobia. The article also contains elements of conspiracy theory about the coronavirus pandemic. Taz and Der Spiegelare prominent and respected German media; they represent a wide range of political opinions and do not have a single editorial policy for any country or topic. There is no "corona regime" - this is a baseless conspiracy theory and part of the Kremlin’s ongoing disinformation campaign around the coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) comes from a family of viruses that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading, with new cases being reported in more than 200 countries of the world. There are now more than 5,500,000 confirmed coronavirus cases globally. More than 350,000 people died because of Covid-19. An updated situation report from WHO on the coronavirus pandemic can be found here. Read similar disinformation cases alleging that coronavirus pandemic is exaggerated in order to turn countries into fascist hygiene dictatorships, that the Masters of Darkness invented the COVID-19 and seek world domination and that German media are Russophobic.
