Disinfo: The Great Reset plan aims to establish total control over people’s minds

Summary

The Great Reset plan, devised by globalist élites, aims to use the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse to establish total control over people’s minds by means of total surveillance, censorship and manipulation of social media, and the collection of data on everyone.

Disproof

Disinformation presented without supporting evidence. This article combines recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about secret global elites who rule the world with the new Great Reset conspiracy theory. It is also consistent with narratives about the Covid-19 pandemic that are often spread by pro-Kremlin outlets.

The Great Reset is an unfounded conspiracy theory claiming the existence of a plot to create a global totalitarian regime to completely control the world's population by exploiting Covid-19. It is completely unfounded.

The Great Reset conspiracy first surfaced in June 2020 after the World Economic Forum (WEF) - a global NGO established nearly 50 years ago by the engineer and economist Klaus Schwab - introduced “The Great Reset” initiative, an effort to reduce global inequality, to find a solution to climate change, and to assess how countries might recover from the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The concept of a Great Reset was proposed at the 2020 World Economic Forum by Prince Charles along with Klaus Schwab. The idea of seeking a response to the economic and pandemic crisis and climate change was later echoed by the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Great Reset concept was later manipulated by conspiracy theorists to claim that a “Great Reset plot” existed, orchestrated by “globalist élites”.

Disinformation narratives about the Covid-19 pandemic are being used in various ways to reinforce the credibility of the Great Reset conspiracy theory. Such narratives claim, for example, that “globalist elites” use the pandemic to justify a state of emergency that will become permanent, as well as to justify violations of fundamental rights, forced vaccinations, media censorship, digital surveillance, and the abolition of private property.

The Great Reset conspiracy theory has been analysed and debunked by several scholars and by the BBC, as well as Reuters and AFP.

Read similar cases claiming that the Great Reset is a global plan by the secret elites to subjugate humanity, that Global Elites are preparing a big coup d’etat - The Great Reset, and that the pandemic is an operation to forward the interests of the global elites.

US regards Ukraine as tool of containment against Russia

On the grand chessboard, the United States regards Ukraine as a tool of containment against Russia. This is what US President Joe Biden has virtually said. The Paris-Berlin-Moscow-Beijing axis is being created, and the US position in Europe is questioned. The US will be at least striving to return European countries to the situation before 2014 when there was a consensus about imposing sanctions on Russia.

Disproof

This is a recurrent disinformation narrative by the pro-Kremlin media in Ukraine.

Both the European Union and the United States support Ukraine in its war against pro-Russian separatists in the eastern region of Donbas. The US also provides Ukraine with military equipment. All under transparent schemes.

Moldovan doctors await Sputnik V, refusing to get vaccinated with AstraZeneca

Moldovan doctors are waiting for Sputnik V, refusing the Romanian AstraZeneca. Specialists in the field do not trust the Romanian AstraZeneca and are waiting for the Russian Sputnik V to arrive in the republic.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about vaccination, presenting the vaccines approved by WHO as not so efficient as Russian Sputnik V. See here a similar case claiming that Moldovan doctors refuse to be vaccinated, in general, against COVID-19.

The claim comes as two groups of doctors from the Gagauz autonomy of the Republic of Moldova asked the Ministry of Health not to send them AstraZeneca vaccines, donated by Romania, as there are no people willing to be vaccinated. The text quotes the head of the hospital in Ceadir-Lunga with the statement: “Our team agrees to be vaccinated. But they want either Pfizer or Sputnik V.”

Russia already destroyed its chemical stockpile, the US didn’t

The United States assumed the role of a warrior to "prohibit the production" of chemical weapons, despite the fact that Russia had fulfilled its obligations several years ago to get rid of chemical weapons, and the United States, which took upon itself obligations, did not fulfil them, and these chemical weapons are still in its possession and have not been destroyed.

Disproof

A recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative that Russia shut down all its chemical weapons programmes while trying to make it seem as if the US is not committed to destroying its own stockpile.

In September 2017, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) did in fact confirm the full destruction of the 39,967 tonnes of chemical weapons possessed by Russia, but Novichoks were never declared to the OPCW and were not included in the Chemical Weapons Convention until 2019. Russia is a member of OPCW.
