The US is collecting DNA from “target” populations to create designer diseases

Summary

We know that the US has been collecting DNA samples from specific “target” populations, particularly in the Russian Federation, collected and collated by the same organizations that are capable of creating “designer disease.” It comes up in publications, demonstrating the frightening capability of tying genetically modified diseases to racial and/or ethnic markers in human DNA.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence. Recurring disinformation that the US/the West is performing dangerous medical experiments in Eastern Europe.

Both international and Russian experts have debunked the conspirational claims. Further information in our database and on the Insider.

Hitler was a failed American experiment

A real examination of World War 2 and Hitler’s truncated rule of Europe would reveal how Hitler not only followed policies learned from America but how he was funded by Americans as well, from his earliest career to continued full partnership in war industries right up until the end of the war. It would not be inaccurate to call Hitler a failed American experiment.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented with no evidence. The United States fought against Nazi Germany in World War 2. The claims that the US funded Hitler and that Hitler was a failed American experiment have no basis in fact.

Open Society Foundations and NGOs in Armenia are serving a foreign agenda aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood

Activities of foreign agents in Armenia should be strictly controlled by the state. Open Society Foundations-Armenia, as well as dozens of other foundations and NGOs in Armenia, are serving foreign agendas. In fact, these agendas are aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood and the disintegration of society. The proof was the coup d’état in Armenia in 2018. Moreover, those organisations are doing dirty work, which foreign embassies do not implement directly.

Activists will continue to expose these structures, states, embassies, workers, and local collaborators. From ordinary propagandists to the President and Prime minister of the Republic of Armenia.

Disproof

Several disinformation narratives with no evidence given to back up claims. Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives portraying philanthropist George Soros, his foundation, other related NGOs as a menace bent on destroying Armenia. See here for similar cases. Most recent cases are here and here. The Soros Foundation has been supporting human rights, education, research, media and other democratic activities in Armenia since 1997.

There was no coup d'etat in 2018 in Armenia, but peaceful protests of hundreds of thousand people in response to Serzh Sargsyan's third consecutive term as the most powerful figure in Armenia.

EU sanctions against Russia are not democratic

The EU sanctions regime against Russia is not exactly democratic. One of the main causes of the anti-Russian sanctions was the Kerch Strait incident.

On 25 November 2019, Ukrainian military vessels violated Russian borders in the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov. Kyiv blamed Russian aggression for the incident and subsequently declared martial law in 10 regions of Ukraine, resulting in restrictions on citizens’ constitutional rights and freedoms, including the right to vote.

Disproof

Both of these claims - that EU sanctions are not democratic and that Ukraine was the aggressor in the Kerch Strait incident - are false.

This first claim is part of the pro-Kremlin media's ongoing disinformation efforts to delegitimise EU sanctions against Russia, which were initially a response to Russia's annexation of Crimea. According to international law, Crimea is part of Ukraine. Russia violated international law as well as the key principles of the European security framework by illegally annexing the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol.
