Disinfo: The rejection of the Russian vaccine is a planned destruction of the Ukrainian people

Summary

Consent to any surrogate: Ukraine decided on a Chinese vaccine that has not proven its effectiveness. The rejection of the Russian vaccine is nothing more than planned destruction of the Ukrainian people.

Disproof

Disinformation that exploits the coronavirus pandemic to push a recurring narrative about Ukrainian statehood and a Russophobic narrative towards the possible Sputnik V vaccine.

Ukraine does not prohibit the use of the potential “Sputnik V” vaccine just because it is Russian.

In general, the Sputnik V vaccine has been met with international scepticism and even the World Health Organisation expressed some reservations especially that it hasn’t completed large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy, and rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger people who receive it.

The Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy was clear when he said: "If someone has a vaccine for COVID-19, Ukraine will buy it.” He even pointed out the same argument regarding any vaccine from the EU by stating "The EU has confirmed that it will help Ukraine get a real vaccine when it appears and when it does not have doubts cast by scientists."

Background:

Ukraine has signed a contract to buy 1.8 million doses of China’s Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine, the presidential office said on Wednesday, with the shots expected in “the shortest possible time.”

Sinovac is seeking to consolidate data from global trials that include Indonesia, Chile, Turkey and Brazil. Brazil has reported the vaccine’s efficacy at between 50% and 90%, having delayed the release of data three times.

This week, two Turkish doctors told Reuters that at least a couple more weeks were probably needed for the Sinovac trial results to prove decisive since the sample size needed to grow.

See a similar case: "Ukraine continues 'policy of genocide' because it will not buy Russian covid vaccine".

Other disinfo cases about the Sputnik V vaccine: that ugly commercial interests are behind the criticism of the Russian COVID-19 vaccine or that WHO confirms the "Sputnik-V" vaccine is safe and effective, or that Ukraine may buy the Russian vaccine against COVID-19 indirectly through EU, or that the IMF define and control Ukraine.

Zelenskyy and Erdogan are planning a war on Donbas

Volodymyr Zelenskyy is preparing for the resumption of hostilities on Donbas. He has already announced that Ukraine will withdraw from the Minsk Group if the agreements do not yield results within a year. The red line in this story is Ukraine’s cooperation with Turkey, which, having played enough in Karabakh, has decided to “help Nezalezhnoy [an offensive term in Russian for Ukraine]”.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the war in Ukraine.

In October, Ukraine and Turkey published a joint statement following the meeting between Zelenskyy and Erdogan. It says that Turkey will:

Rejection of Sputnik V is a planned operation to kill Ukrainians

The rejection of purchasing the Russian COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V by Ukrainian authorities is a planned operation to kill Ukrainians.

Disproof

This is a pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Sputnik V vaccine as well as Ukraine.

In general, the Sputnik V vaccine has been met with international skepticism and even the World Health Organisation expressed some reservations, especially as it hasn’t completed large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger people who receive it.

Democrats and globalist Republicans stole Donald Trump's victory in US presidential elections 2020

Stealing the elections that President Donald Trump actually won with a huge electoral advantage required such an enormous effort from the Democrats and the globalist Republicans operating with them at the same time, that almost all the masks were thrown off. The moment of truth has come. It became clear to everyone what was going on, that there was practically no democracy and real freedom in the United States, and Americans now have not the slightest moral right to teach anyone about this.

Disproof

Disinformation about the US in the context of the US presidential election. In its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was:

"competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

There were extensive investigations about possible fraud, which turned out to be unfounded. This unprecedented scrutiny led to the conclusion that the November 3rd elections were the most secure elections in the history of the United States.
