Disinfo: The new coronavirus was engineered in France and then escaped from laboratories in China

Summary

The coronavirus Sars-2 was engineered by the Pasteur Institute, then transferred to China, in the city of Wuhan, in a P4 biological laboratory. Then by accident, it got out of the lab and started a pandemic.

This piece of information is hidden by main institutions and media because they don’t want to know where the virus comes from. But real people know it and spread the word.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence, the source are rumours, "people say that".

There is so far no evidence that the new coronavirus causing the Covid-19 has human sources. Information available point out to the natural origin.

The West is engaged in the degradation of the Ukrainian education system

The West is engaged in the degradation of the Ukrainian education system. This is all done in order to make Ukraine into some kind of agrarian neocolony. This is also an IMF requirement – degradation of the Ukrainian education system, because they do not need qualified personnel in the West, but they need cheap labour, obedient biomass.

Disproof

No evidence provided. The common pro-Kremlin narrative about the aggressive West and Ukraine as a non-sovereign country.

The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said that the new agreement with IMF does not require any conditions for structural reforms, and educational reform as well.

Donetsk and Luhansk established two republics in 2014 to oppose a coup in Kyiv

Since 2014, Ukraine has witnessed an ongoing political and military crisis in the east of the country, after the Donetsk and Luhansk regions authorities announced the creation of two republics in their territories, in opposition to a coup in Kyiv in February of the same year.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative painting the 2013-14 protests in Kyiv as a conflict between the eastern regions and Ukraine.

The war in eastern Ukraine is not a civil conflict but a well-documented act of aggression by Russian armed forces, ongoing since February 2014.

Biden’s militants set America on fire

Biden’s campaign headquarters and the Democratic Party understood the expression “go on the attack” literally. They unleashed riots and pseudo-racial war in more than 70 cities in the US. Only a third of the protesters are African-Americans, the remaining demonstrators – young white Americans.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US racial justice protests.

There is no evidence that the Democratic Party is interested in “chaos” in the USA. On the contrary, the presumptive Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential Election Joe Biden, condemned violence at the protests. “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not”, Biden said. The Governor of Minnesota from the Democratic Party Tim Walz also condemns any violence at protests.
