West’s “espionage conspiracy” failed

West’s espionage conspiracy failed. The attempt of Western countries to unite against Russia, while simultaneously accusing it of secret illegal activities, does not make sense – writes The New Yorker.

Disproof

The original article say nothing about a "Western conspiracy". One of the respondents merely describes the reaction of the West as not sufficient to change Russia's aggressive behaviour: "Russia is on a clear course of more aggressive behavior toward the West. Strong statements and narrow sanctions won’t change that," said Alina Polyakova from the Brookings Institute to the New Yorker.

Recurring narrative about conspiracies in the pro-Kremlin media. The Western countries recently reacted to Russia's illegal activities such as: annexation of Crimea, Skripal's poisoning and OPCW targeting.

Cancer, syphilis and “Spanish flu” are US biological weapons

Many Latin America leaders died because of cancer, most of them were against the US policy.

The Nazi specialists were also developing biological weapons and some of them were caught by US special services. Therefore the epidemic of cancer could have been caused by an American biological weapon. The US is also linked to the development of syphilis and “Spanish flu”.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about US developing biological and/or chemical weapons (mostly in order to use them against Russia). See e.g. the Disinfo Review from 4 October 2018.
