Disinfo: The West is blackmailing everyone: if you don’t go to Bill Gates for a vaccine, millions will die

Summary

This is a matter of Russia’s security, which is quite frankly pushed to the limit: go to Bill Gates in the West and bow to him, get a vaccine, if you don’t go – millions will die. All this is too serious not to sound the alarm bells.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that blames the Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates and other “global elites” for the COVID-19 pandemic and for trying to exploit the situation to increase their wealth, to reduce the world’s population and/or to create a global surveillance network by vaccinating people in order to secretly install tracking chips inside them. There is no evidence for any of these claims.

Most conspiracy theories about Bill Gates’ alleged project to use microchip implants to fight the coronavirus are based on a March 19 article posted on the 'Biohackinfo' website (see here). The 'Biohackinfo' article misleadingly says that “quantum dot dye,” a technology indeed founded by the Gates Foundation, would be used as “human-implantable capsules that have ‘digital certificates’ which can show who has been tested for the coronavirus”. Kevin McHugh, one of the lead authors of the “quantum dot dye” research paper, said, “The quantum dot dye technology is not a microchip or human-implantable capsule and to my knowledge there are no plans to use this for coronavirus.”

The 'Biohackinfo' article also misleadingly quotes one of Gates’s remarks made in an interview given to Reddit. In this interview, Gates did mention the possibility of having a “digital certificate” for health records “eventually,” but he did not say these certificates would be microchip implants. For a full debunking of this conspiracy theory against Bill Gates, see here.

Read previous cases claiming that Bill Gates is planning to use microchip implants to fight the coronavirus, that Covid-19 will allow total control of the population through forced vaccination and chips and that Bill Gates, Rockefeller and other “global elites” seek to reduce the world’s population and that the survivors will be poisoned with vaccines.

Russia respects the sovereignty of all states

Russia is a country that adheres to the limits of decent foreign policy, and is always keen on respecting the sovereignty of all states; it does not resort to media games, hybrid warfare, or inciting peoples against their symbols and political systems.

Disproof

A pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russia being respectful of international law, and never interfering in other country's affairs. Russia has a long record of violating other states' sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Since 1991, Russia was involved in several international conflicts, including intervention in neighbouring states, such as Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014. Many international organisations condemned Russian occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the CSCE statement here and the European Parliament's declaration.

Bill Gates seeks to reduce the global population

Take a look at the Guardian article published 10 years ago: we find out that in 2010 Bill Gates Founded a “Good Club”, together with David Rockefeller, Warren Buffett, George Soros and others. And what was the main problem in the planet, as announced by the club and which they are determined to solve? Of course, it is the overpopulation of the Earth […]

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about Bill Gates.

This TV broadcast misrepresents the Guardian article to advance conspiracy theories. The Guardian indeed reported about the meeting of billionaire philanthropists in 2009. According to the Guardian the meeting was convened "in response to the global economic downturn and the numerous health and environmental crises that are plaguing the globe".

US instigates wars and revolutions to flood Europe with refugees

The United States enters a country and starts bombing it: completely overturns the anthill, creates civil tension, wars, partisan wars, hatred, a huge number of deaths, and in the end, Europeans must accept these refugees. It turns out that this is a definite cynical tool. And now, once again, in the wake of the crisis, it will be possible to start a war somewhere, and from there, NATO will go to Europe… It can all be like a strategy, why not. After stirring up social tension in five different places, in different countries, making revolutions, making Maidans, a million refugees will fall upon Europe.

Disproof

One of many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: alleging that the US is behind the so-called colour revolutions around the world; blaming Western governments for deliberately provoking massive migration flows to Europe; undermining Ukraine's statehood and claiming that the Euromaidan protests were organised by foreign forces.

Previous pro-Kremlin disinformation claim that Obama and Soros were jointly provoking colour revolutions; that Belarus is to become a colony of the West; that gender theories and identity policies are used by the US to bring down disobeying governments and that Ukraine is enslaved to Europe after Maidan.
