Disinfo: 150 tons of medical cargo disappeared from the Ukrainian superplane

Summary

If it is true that Ukrainian plane “Antonov” brought only 90 tons of cargo, it means that with a lifting capacity of 250 tons the plane used less than 1/3 (sic) of its transport capabilities. Kombinat Górniczo-Hutniczy Miedzi is the Polish state corporation responsible for the transaction. It paid 12 million zlotys. This is a gigantic mismanagement, for which someone should answer criminally. Thus, Internet users conclude that the fate of at least 150 tons of medical equipment is unknown.

Disproof

The conclusion in this article that "Poles wonder where the 150 tons of cargo go" is based on one Facebook post.

Ukraine's An-225 Mriya plane (the world's largest transport aircraft) has delivered a record medical cargo from China to Poland - 100 tonnes, the press service of the Antonov Company has reported on Facebook. It notes that in China, about 100 tonnes of medicines, laboratory tests, medical masks and other remedies were loaded into the aircraft.

As mentioned in Ukrainian media, the aircraft will deliver the rest of the cargo to Poland on the second flight. According to the Polish Ministry of State Assets, the Ukrainian giant will bring the country nearly 400 tons of medical cargo purchased from China. However, due to the fact that the aircraft is only capable of carrying up to 250 tons of cargo at a time, it will likely have to make at least two round trips to fulfill the Polish contract.

Ursula von der Leyen adopts laws under Greta Thunberg’s dictatorship

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen adopts laws under activist Greta Thunberg’s dictatorship. The whole “wave” associated with Greta Tunberg is certainly blackmail in the direction of environmentally friendly production, and “ecological neutrality”.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative targeting Greta Thunberg.

The European Commission unveiled a “climate law” on 6th February 2020 to make the EU’s 2050 net zero emissions target legally binding. Swedish activist Greta Thunberg and NGOs criticised this new law, describing it as a surrender to the environmental crisis. Greta Thunberg and NGOs say more urgent action is needed to beat the climate crisis.

Bill Gates and George Soros are to blame for the artificially created coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic could be a rehearsal for biological warfare. This idea was expressed by the President of the National Medical Chamber, Leonid Roshal. No matter how terrifying the idea that it would be beneficial for someone to destroy half of humanity is, it finds its supporters, including prominent experts worldwide.

Available information on the global epidemiological situation with the infection caused by the new coronavirus CoViD-19 suggests that it did not emerge accidentally, it was “composed” for a specific purpose. If CoViD-19 was of natural origin, then Chinese scientists would have already picked it out from animal populations that own it.

A publication in the Nature magazine supports this “theory”. Dated November 2015, it relates the trials on coronavirus that started in 2014. The theory that the origin of the virus is a laboratory in Wuhan has been also confirmed by scientists in India.

From the very first minutes that the virus spread, most Western media rushed to express the idea of ​​a virus leaking from a laboratory in Wuhan. But the Chinese immediately took up a defensive position. The first outbreaks of coronavirus were deaths related to electronic cigarettes in the United States last August: “Symptoms and conditions could not be explained by electronic cigarettes.” After some time, it became clear that there is not just one viral laboratory in Wuhan. Another research centre, funded by the famous banker George Soros, is also studying dangerous viruses.

But this particular video really makes the blood colder. In it, in 2015, Bill Gates told why mankind would die. And at Event 201 sponsored by him, which took place in October 2019 in New York, the powers that be were discussing the coronavirus pandemic.

Disproof

The article contains a variety of misleading claims, confusing established facts and opinions and versions. So far, scientists have proven that the new coronavirus could not have had been created in a lab. In Nature medicine magazine, scientists entirely disproved the idea that this virus resulted from a laboratory manipulation. In the study, the researchers examined what could be deduced from the original coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, working with a comparative analysis of genetic data. In the article, they describe the notable characteristics of its genome and discuss the scenarios in which it could reproduce. Their analyses clearly show that the SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construction or a deliberately manipulated virus and is of animal origin. The research results are supported by leading research institutions in the world.

The Indian scientists to which Life.Ru refers, retracted their own article, previously published as a preprint:

The coronavirus might be an act of Anglo-Saxon revenge

Prince Charles’ recent recovery from coronavirus, his successful reunion to his family, who for a while publicly kept a distance from their future king, bears witness of an antidote [against the COVID-19]. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s recover demonstrates the same. [—]

Should the Anglo-Saxons just desert the dominating position they have held for hundreds of years? No, this is not in the genes of the descendants of pirates like Drake and Morgan! Now is a suitable time to restore London’s authority and influence. Global networks fall apart, new will appear in new forms and shapes. This is time for the British Crown [“Korona” in Russian].

All this lends to the question: are we observing the revenge of the Anglo-Saxons in real time? Great Britain will have vengeance for China’s cunning actions in Hong Kong; for the Yank’s “indecent proposals”, suggesting a leash around the neck of the proud Britons, and for “all good things”, that the Brits had to endure from an ever growing pressure from the bureaucrats in Brussels, all still very much in fresh memory. Can you even imagine that Her Majesty should yield to the instructions from the Brussels’ bureaucrats, especially as they lack “noble blood”?

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence. A pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative linking Britain and Russophobia.
