Disinfo: The Tavistock Institute is largely responsible for the proliferation of perverts all over the world

Summary

The Tavistock Institute in London is largely responsible for the proliferation of perverts all over the world, under the smokescreen of tolerance. The Tavistock Institute, which conducts rather serious work in the fields of social engineering and manipulation, is also currently involved in supporting colour revolutions.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

The claim advanced recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives that certain Western organisations exercise an enormous amount of secret influence on global affairs. Pro-Kremlin outlets have singled out various organisations as alleged secret centres of global power. For example, the Bilderberg Group is often depicted by pro-Kremlin conspiracy theories as a  secret “world government”.

The London-based Tavistock Institute has been depicted by some pro-Kremlin outlets as a secret organisation that shapes and controls global culture and public opinion. For example, such outlets have alleged that the Tavistock Institute created the Beatles and the subculture of rebellion, drugs and sexual permissiveness surrounding them.

These narratives relayed by pro-Kremlin media are based on a number of conspiracy theories about the Tavistock Institute developed by Western authors.

These conspiracy theories are completely devoid of any factual basis. The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is a not-for-profit organisation specialised in applying social science to contemporary issues and problems, especially in the field of management and organisational theory and practice. The institute, a spin-off from the psychoanalytically oriented Tavistock Clinic, was established in 1947. The aim was to apply wartime breakthroughs in large-scale social psychiatry, pioneered in the army, to peacetime issues - notably the effectiveness of organisations.

The article also contains the recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative portraying the West as depraved, an immoral actor that fights against traditional values, promoting deviant sexual behaviour and endangering societies and imposing the same in other countries.

See a previous case claiming that satanic and criminal Western élites promote sexual perversions.

US imposed sanctions on Russian institutions over COVID-19 vaccine development

The second thing we [Russia] will surely see in the near future is a clash [with Western countries] over the vaccine. We are still awaiting sanctions for the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, they have already imposed sanctions on those institutions that participated in the development of it [the Russian COVID-19 vaccine].

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the western sanctions against Russia.

The US Bureau of Industry and Security is indeed imposing sanctions on three Russian research institutions. This is stated in the document of the US Bureau of Industry and Security dated 27 August. US sanctions have nothing to do with the production of a vaccine against the new strain of coronavirus. According to the document the sanctioned entities are associated with development of biological and chemical weapons in Russia:  

Alexei Navalny case: German doctors are silenced

A curious discrepancy: in Russia, the case is being freely and openly discussed by all sorts of professionals who have a say on the matter – doctors, those who treated the patient, investigators, journalists, diplomats, and politicians. However, in the West only high ranking politicians do the talking, the doctors are silent.  The doctors at the Berlin clinic Charité seem to have been gagged because they did not say anything. 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Navalny's poisoning.

The Berlin clinic Charité, where Alexei Navalny is being treated, has issued several statements with the preliminary results of medical investigation.

2008 August War is an example of how NATO poses threat to peace with its military excercises

Regular practices of conducting large-scale military exercises, such as Noble Partner 2020, in alliance with the Western states may pose a serious threat to peace and stability in the South Caucasus, the example of which was Georgia’s military aggression in August 2008. 

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on stability, NATO and the conflict between Russia and Georgia. 

The disinformation message aims to present the conflict in 2008 as "Georgian aggression" and deny Russia's role in it. In fact, according to the EU, Russian military presence in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia continues in violation of international law and commitments undertaken by Russia under the 12 August 2008 agreement.
