Disinfo: The World Economic Forum aims to reduce the human population

Summary

The World Economic Forum (WEF) aims to reduce the human population to 1 billion “chosen” people because there are not enough places and sources in the world for the whole population. For this, the WEF created a “Reset” plan. The plan is in the implementation stage through wars and pandemics, using the poison named “COVID-19 vaccine”.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory about the so-called “Reset” plan.

The claim is presented without any evidence. The World Economic Forum is a well-known independent international organisation. As mentioned in the programme of the Forum's 2023 Annual Meeting, the current event addresses different crises, including the war in Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic. The agenda of the Forum “will have the dual focus of looking at levers to address the current challenges while at the same time setting them against the backdrop of attendant system transformation imperatives”.

A conspiracy theory about ”the Great Reset”, the so-called global plan to change the world in the interest of ”economic elites”, is still repeated periodically, even if it was debunked in November 2020 by BBC's reality check.

Disinfo: The West and Kyiv are responsible for the Ukrainian deaths in Bakhmut

The Bakhmut slaughter was predictable. The Ukrainians waited for help from the West which never arrived. [It was] a real massacre, with huge losses on the Ukrainian side.

Unfortunately, the Kyiv government preferred to let the majority of its soldiers die in a slaughter.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about the large losses of Ukrainian army, allegedly because of lack of European support.

The important level of losses in Bakhmut is partially true, but Russia is the only one responsible for those deaths. The argument that Europeans did not provide enough defensive military equipment to sustain massive Russian assaults, and therefore that Russian responsibility for the deaths could be transferred to European is specious. Just like the argument that Kyiv is responsible for the destruction of the country because it resists the Russian invasion as stated Sergey Lavrov in May 2022, this is wrong.

Disinfo: Russia hits only military targets in Ukraine

The Russian armed forces do not strike at residential buildings or social infrastructure facilities. Only military targets – whether obvious or camouflaged – are being hit.

Disproof

This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that Russian troops do not hit civilian objects and accusing Ukrainian troops of doing so.

In reality, there are numerous cases of Russian troops hitting residential buildings and civilian facilities. Russian forces regularly strike at civilian objects in Ukraine, killing and wounding dozens of people. On 14 January 2023, at least 40 people were killed and 76 were wounded in a Russian missile attack on the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro when an apartment building was hit. According to spokesman of Ukraine's Air Force Yuri Ihnat, a Russian Kh-22 missile hit the building. 72 flats were destroyed and more than 230 flats were damaged in the attack. The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) published the names of some Russian servicemen involved in the attack.

Disinfo: A French witness proved that the crimes in Bucha were organised by Ukraine

In the spring of 2022, Adrien Bocquet arrived in Ukraine on a humanitarian mission as a volunteer. Following his trip, he said he witnessed numerous war crimes committed by the Kyiv armed forces. The Frenchman claims to have witnessed the preparation of a staging of the massacre of civilians in Bucha by the Ukrainian side.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about staged imaginary war crimes fabricated by Ukraine to damage Russia's reputation.

Adrien Bocquet, expressed in autumn 2022 his desire to receive Russian citizenship and in the winter of 2022 he applied for political asylum. In France he made strong declarations about so-called "staged war crimes" in Bucha that were proved to be completely fabricated when fact-checked. Journalists also proved that many stories about his trip to Ukraine and his past were also the result of his fruitful imagination, he also photoshopped pictures to support his (mis)representation of events.
