Disinfo: US biological lab conducting deadly experiments on Georgian population

Summary

Experiments on people in Georgia. What is happening at Lugar Lab? Dangerous experiments are being carried out at the lab upon the US government’s instructions, while the Georgian government does not listen to its own population and only fulfils the US directives.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Lugar Lab.

The video offers the remarks by three Georgian respondents, portraying their opinions about the Lugar Lab as “the Georgian population’s” position. Among them is Moscow-based political analyst Alexander Chachia, Georgia’s ex-security chief in 2001-2004, famous for his anti-US stance, Valerian Khaburdzania and Moscow-based businessman Vladimir Khomeriki.

The Richard Lugar Centre for Public Health Research is a facility of the National Centre for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC), which became operational in August 2013. The Lugar centre is a top-tiered institution in NCDC’s laboratory network and serves as a reference laboratory for Georgia’s public health system. Under no circumstances has this laboratory been designed or redesigned to build biological weapons.

The West is helping to destabilise the situation in Belarus before the election

The West has created in Belarus a whole system of social instruments that can destabilise the situation in the country on the eve of the presidential election. The West, of course, invests such money not without reason, but for a specific purpose. This goal is the preparation of a colour revolution.

Disproof

The recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narratives about the Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus.

There is no evidence that the West is preparing a so-called colour revolution in Belarus.

Ukrainian officials are obsessed by imaginary invasions and inexistent Russian imperial ambitions

Ukrainians are hysterical about an imaginary Russian threat. In June 2020, two top Ukrainian officials gave an interview where they discussed the Russian imperial ambition and the possibility for their country to face a large scale war with their neighbor.

Psychiatrists should consider opening a whole research institute in Ukraine to assess the level of insanity prevailing among the country’s elites.

 

Disproof

Recurrent narrative aiming at dismissing warmongering and weak Ukraine, and, on the contrary, praising peaceful Russia.

The claims about Ukrainian elites lacking mental capacity are a classic example of dehumanisation as a tool of pro-Kremlin disinformation.

The US created ISIS and terrorism in the Middle East

The US created ISIS and terrorism in the Middle East

Disproof

No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US is supporting or working together with ISIS in the Middle East and that ISIS has been supported by the US, British, French and Israeli intelligence services in order to demolish Syria.

This message is part of a broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States has created and supported many jihadi terrorist organisations and controls global terrorism.
