Disinfo: The coronavirus is a US biological weapon to reduce the planet’s population

Summary

Americans have a full arsenal of biological weapons. And this manifestation of the US hybrid warfare against the economic sectors they do not control is perfectly understandable and logical.

Primitive Malthusian ideas still prevail there, one can constantly hear that there are too many humanity, that the planet, they say, cannot survive so many people, and so on. Therefore, they die today, you look, mostly people of the yellow race, so to speak. This is China, Korea, Japan. Among Europeans, such a tragic fate befell people with reduced immunity, the elderly, who are traditionally regarded as ballast for this ideology of the “golden billion”.

 

 

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about "secret elites" controlling world leaders.

The Italian government might fuel the hysteria to gain benefits from EU funding

These numbers [of COVID-19 cases in Italy] cause reasonable questions because there are not so much explanations of the observed crisis in Europe. So, the entire Italian government is disfunctional and demonstrates a criminal negligence, or the available statistics exaggerates the scale of crisis. If one supposes that the Italian government is interested in fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals (to support the global campaign in the field or gain tactical economic benefits as additional funding from the EU), it may look that authorities count any virus infection death or even deaths caused some other reasons as coronavirus-caused deaths.

Disproof

Claiming that something or someone is or has failed is a common disinformation tactic in the pro-Kremlin media. Examples of such claimed failures include Hitler was a failed American experiment; Ukraine has failed as a political nation; the EU has failed; Robert Mueller failed.

As for the criminal negligence of the Italian government, there is no proof. The same goes for the "fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals".

US is going to teach tolerance of sodomy through social networks

US government-funded LGBT New World Society is launching a “Tolerance Landing” programme to spread LGBT propaganda on social media.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on identity and Western values.

LGBT New World Society does not exist. This organisation is not in the list of LGBT organisations registered in the US. Victoria Heels, cited as the programme director also does not exist.

Russian defendant in MH17 trial denied access to own case file

Since the Dutch court presiding over the MH17crash case is not obligated to translate all the case materials — with the case file consisting of 36,000 pages — the sole Russian defendant represented at the trial may be left without the possibility to study all the documents.

According to a court representative, if the defendants are present in the courtroom and cannot understand Dutch or English, the judge will provide a certified interpreter. Translation of the file case can be provided by the lawyer of the defendants, but not by the court. The court is in Dutch, so all files and hearings will be in Dutch. No translation other than an interpreter is obligatory.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aiming to discredit the investigation of the Joint International Team (JIT) into the downing of flight MH17.

The report implies that without access to the entire 36,000-page case file, the accused Russian national will not be able to mount an effective defence. It also falsely claims that translation of case files and any other relevant documents can only be provided by the lawyer of the defendant.
