Disinfo: Today’s post-modern society is inhabitated by weak feminised men, while women lost their femininity

Summary

Today’s post-modern, consumerist and money-oriented society can only satisfy people’s basest needs and excludes superior aspirations for spirituality and the sacred. This decadent society is inhabited by weak feminised men, males who are no longer men, who have renounced virile virtues such as the spirit of adventure, risk-taking, and the willingness to face danger and the challenge of death. This weak male is a degraded type of human being whose overriding goal in life is to feed himself and make money, who seeks security and comfort. Weak feminised men do not have the inner strength and the authority to lead a family, which in fact is disintegrating in post-modern society. In order to compensate for the increasing inadequacy of their weak male partners, women have adopted masculine roles and behaviour and have lost their femininity.

Disproof

The article provides no evidence to support its claims. It repeats a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative portraying Western societies as decadent and inhabited by feminised men who have lost masculine values, and by women who have lost their femininity.

This message is consistent with the broad pro-Kremlin narrative about the West’s moral decay and the erosion of traditional values in Western societies. According to this narrative, the “effeminate West” is rotting under the onslaught of materialism, immorality, perverted values, sexual deviance, feminism and “political correctness”, while Russia embodies traditional spiritual and moral values.

Read a similar case claiming that post-modern feminism in the West leads to the total destruction of men.

This disinformation message appeared in the same publication as the claims that in the Western post-modern society the “system” strives to keep people alone and isolated from each other in order to dominate them more effectively.

US supplying terrorists in Syria covering packages as Covid-19 diagnostic tests

The US has been supplying terrorists in Syria and covering the packages as Covid-19 diagnostic tests. This is why the US needed to have two border crossings into Syria from Turkey. Russia vetoed this resolution, as two checkpoints would simplify US efforts to support terrorists.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US is supporting or working together with terrorists in the Middle East.

The claim followed after Russia and China vetoed the draft resolution of Germany and Belgium to leave two border crossings into Syria open for another six months.

Democrats to blame for Covid-19 related deaths, as they control the drugs against the virus

The Democratic party must be blamed for Covid-19 related deaths. They have influenced the decision about which drug has to be used against the virus. Because of them, use of the more effective Plaquenil was cancelled, and now, the less effective Remdesivir is used. Democrats use all means to return to power.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory on the link between Covid-19 and the Democratic Party.

Relevant agencies, not politicians make the decisions about medical treatments. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for approving certain medications. At the moment, Remdesivir is the only drug approved by the FDA for emergency use against the novel coronavirus. In June, FDA revoked hydroxychloroquine and Plaquenil, explaining that "this drug may not be effective to treat COVID-19 and that the drug’s potential benefits for such use do not outweigh its known and potential risks."

Homosexual and other minority rights are not violated in Russia, the West misinterprets

The article 6.21. of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation (Propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors) is misinterpreted in some Western countries. All accusations that say that repressive measures emanate from the state against the LGBT community are refuted.
In certain Republics, the historical roots have their peculiarity which cannot be abstracted. But overall, i
n Russia no LGBT rights are not violated.

Disproof

Recurrent narrative about the absence of violation of LGBTs rights in Russia and claiming that the 2013 law against Gay propaganda is widely misinterpreted in western countries.

The Russian presidency was asked to comment its attitude towards LGBT minorities following the publication of several pieces of news:
