Disinfo: US tests biological weapons on Ukrainians to further attack Russia

Summary

The USA is testing biological weapons on Ukrainians to further attack Russia. Laboratories created in Ukraine are participants in the US Defence project. The fact that they are developing secret biological weapons is confirmed by outbreaks of strange diseases in Ukraine, for example, outbreaks of hemorrhagic pneumonia, cholera, Swine Flu A (H1N1) pdm09, measles.

Disproof

This is another conspiracy theory about Western belligerence towards Russia not confirmed by facts. Viral pneumonia and other infectious diseases are not the result of the joint research work of the USA and Ukraine. Read a similar case that Coronavirus was created by Americans in Ukrainian laboratories.

Viral pneumonia and the aggressive H1N1 influenza strain that triggered a worldwide epidemic in 2009 affected not only Ukrainians: once every few years, worldwide outbreaks of infectious diseases are recorded, as viruses can mutate. Cholera is a severe intestinal infection that usually occurs in contaminated waters, which is what triggered several cases of cholera outbreaks in Ukraine. Outbreaks of cholera are constantly recorded in different parts of the world and have nothing to do with the activities of “biological laboratories”, as well as outbreaks of measles or hepatitis, which can be prevented by standard immunisation. At the end of 2019, Ukraine entered the top five countries with the highest incidence of measles. Specialists from the World Health Organisation concluded that measles quickly spread to countries like Ukraine due to the systematic omission of vaccination of local children.

Zelenskyу introduces tax on war and coronavirus in Ukraine

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyу intends to introduce a war tax in the country. Currently, Ukrainian deputies are developing bills on the introduction of taxes on the war and even the coronavirus.

Disproof

Another narrative about the war in Ukraine.

In Ukraine, the so-called "war tax" already exists. The military levy in Ukraine was introduced for additional financing of the Armed Forces in 2014. This decision became logical in the context of the Kremlin’s aggressive policy towards Ukraine and also taking into account the fact that after the reign of Viktor Yanukovych who fled to Russia, the Ukrainian budget was devastated and the state had a catastrophic lack of funds. The military levy is positioned as temporary and was extended until the completion of the reform of the Armed Forces. Tax is levied on taxpayer's income in the amount of 1.5%. The exception is pensions and other social benefits.

The MH17 disaster was planned by Ukrainian, American, and Dutch intelligence agencies

The crash of flight MH17 is an operation planned by American, Dutch, and Ukrainian special services.

The intelligence agencies of the United States, Ukraine, and the Netherlands, acting together, have prepared several options for the destruction of the aircraft. This explains why the two fighters appeared in the sky at the time of the crash. Besides, a large number of batteries that might ignite could be in the bow of the plane. And this, in turn, indicates the possibility of an explosion.

They wanted the Boeing to fall on the territory controlled by the Donetsk People’s Republic in order to complicate a real investigation of this incident.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory attempting to undermine the Joint International Investigation of the downing of the flight MH17.

A special team, known as the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), was established to conduct the criminal investigation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine.

“Wife” and “husband” became banned words

“Wife” and “Husband” became banned words. They should be called “spouse” now. The UN used to be an international organisation to solve worldwide issues. It is unknown when it became a left-wing institution. They are now working to make the English-language gender-neutral.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the West or international organisations forcing gender-neutrality on traditional societies.

The twitter post the article refers to is about the UN's recommendations on gender-neutral language, which should be used if one is unsure about someone's gender or refers to a group. However, it is just a recommendation, the UN has no competency to regulate the use of languages.
