Disinfo: The autopsy showed George Floyd was killed not by the police, but by drugs

Summary

George Floyd wasn’t killed by the police. According to a toxicological report, Floyd died from the fact that he had fentanyl in his blood at a concentration three times the lethal dose.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about racial justice protests in USA.

The claim is made in the context of the idea that the murder was staged in order to artificially impose on the US a false agenda to fight racism and - by orchestrating a 'colour revolution" - to prevent the re-election of Donald Trump. Similar case see here.

In fact, George Floyd's death has been ruled a homicide, as it is shown in the medical examiner report, from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, published by American media.

US biological lab conducting deadly experiments on Georgian population

Experiments on people in Georgia. What is happening at Lugar Lab? Dangerous experiments are being carried out at the lab upon the US government’s instructions, while the Georgian government does not listen to its own population and only fulfils the US directives.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Lugar Lab.

The video offers the remarks by three Georgian respondents, portraying their opinions about the Lugar Lab as “the Georgian population’s” position. Among them is Moscow-based political analyst Alexander Chachia, Georgia’s ex-security chief in 2001-2004, famous for his anti-US stance, Valerian Khaburdzania and Moscow-based businessman Vladimir Khomeriki.

The West is helping to destabilise the situation in Belarus before the election

The West has created in Belarus a whole system of social instruments that can destabilise the situation in the country on the eve of the presidential election. The West, of course, invests such money not without reason, but for a specific purpose. This goal is the preparation of a colour revolution.

Disproof

The recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narratives about the Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus.

There is no evidence that the West is preparing a so-called colour revolution in Belarus.

Ukrainian officials are obsessed by imaginary invasions and inexistent Russian imperial ambitions

Ukrainians are hysterical about an imaginary Russian threat. In June 2020, two top Ukrainian officials gave an interview where they discussed the Russian imperial ambition and the possibility for their country to face a large scale war with their neighbor.

Psychiatrists should consider opening a whole research institute in Ukraine to assess the level of insanity prevailing among the country’s elites.

 

Disproof

Recurrent narrative aiming at dismissing warmongering and weak Ukraine, and, on the contrary, praising peaceful Russia.

The claims about Ukrainian elites lacking mental capacity are a classic example of dehumanisation as a tool of pro-Kremlin disinformation.
