Disinfo: The global liberal world has collapsed

Summary

The global liberal world has collapsed before our very eyes, just as the USSR and the world socialist system fell in 1991.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the disintegration of the European Union and the collapse of the Western system.

The European Union is supporting the Member States in addressing the crisis, and mitigating the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To cushion the blow to people’s livelihoods and the economy, the European Commission has adopted a comprehensive economic response to the outbreak, applied the full flexibility of the EU fiscal rules, has revised its State Aid rules and proposed to set up a EUR 37 billion Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative to provide liquidity to small businesses and the health care sector.

To support scientific research into the COVID-19, the European Commission earmarked 47,5 million EUR for shortlisted research projects that can improve epidemiology and public health, including preparedness and response to outbreaks.

The EU has also created first ever stockpile of medical equipment.

Bill Gates Foundation manufactured Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak

Bill Gates Foundation, Rothschild Vanguard & Blackrock ChiCom manufactured the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak by funding both the creation of the virus and the vaccine.

The campaign predicting hundreds of thousands of deaths by COVID-19 is a lie

Do not let yourself be misled by the fear campaign, pointing to a Worldwide coronavirus calamity with repeated “predictions” that hundreds of thousands of people are going to die.

These are boldface lies. [—]

The unspoken truth is that the novel coronavirus provides a pretext to powerful financial interests and corrupt politicians to trigger the entire World into a spiral of  mass unemployment, bankruptcy, extreme poverty and despair.

This is the true picture of what is happening. “Planet Lockdown” is an encroachment on civil liberties. Entire national economies are in jeopardy. In some countries martial law has been declared.

Disproof

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

The number of people, sick with COVID-19 has surpassed 1 million; more than 60.000 people have died (5 April). See latest situation report from the WHO here.

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