Disinfo: The world powers use Armenia as a spring board for biological war against Iran


The USA developed this biological weapon [coronavirus] in laboratories on the territory of Armenia. Armenia is a leader of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the Caucasus. Given the difficult situation in Iran, these facts indicate that the territory of Armenia, with high probability, is the spring board of the world powers for launching a biological war against Tehran.


Conspiracy theory about the coronavirus pandemic, biological weapons and one of the common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a "Deep state" or Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world and controlling leaders. Consistent with the Pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against biological laboratories in Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine and other countries.

There is no evidence to support the claim that the coronavirus is a biological weapon. The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) comes from a family of viruses that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading, with new cases being reported in more than 200 countries of the world.

Iran reported its first confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infections on 19 February 2020 in Qom. The virus may have been brought to the country by a merchant from Qom who had travelled to China. Armenia reported the first confirmed case on 1 March, the virus carrier arrived from Iran on 28 February.

See other cases claiming that Coronavirus is psychological warfare against enemies like China and Iran, or that coronavirus might easily be a US bacteriological weapon and an ethnic biological weapon, that the coronavirus is a bioweapon brought to Italy by the “Deep State”, that COVID-19 is a bioweapon created by Soros, Bill Gates and the "Deep state", and that the virus is specifically built for Iran using the genetic data of Iranians.

Russiagate is a hoax

Obama’s role in the Flynn imbroglio and in the orchestration of the Russiagate hoax is coming to light, and this is making the former US president nervous.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russiagate which denies Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Robert Mueller's investigation concluded that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election. Mueller’s report maintains that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities”. Nevertheless, it states that Russian interference activities did take place.

Kyiv’s foreign partners inflame war in Donbas to keep sanctions against Russia

All these [reforms in Ukraine, such as decommunisation] are taking place under the blessing of the so-called “foreign partners” who need to continue the conflict in Ukraine in order to keep sanctions against the Russian Federation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that international sanctions against Russia are not justified.

Since March 2014, the EU has progressively imposed restrictive measures against Russia. The measures were adopted in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine.

When coronavirus outbreak began in Wuhan, Washington was celebrating with champagne

When the coronavirus outbreak began in Wuhan, Washington was celebrating with champagne – its competitor would not come to senses soon. However, then the virus moved westwards and despair began. After all, China has been through, the country is coming to life first and taking strategic positions. China has more chances to become a winner than the USA.


Recurring conspiracy theory on coronavirus, the US and its economic rivalry with China.

One of a dozen of other similar cases about the coronavirus, which is consistent with the narrative that the spread of coronavirus is in the interest of the US, UK, and the West to weaken China economically.
