Disinfo: Western campaign against COVID-19 aims to impose control over society


The anti-COVID-19 campaign conducted by the US and other Western governments is not a scientific and medical campaign with a public health agenda. It is a campaign of terror with an agenda to increase the profits of pharmaceutical corporations and an agenda to impose control by casting aside civil liberties and their legal and constitutional protections.

The illegitimate and corrupt president of the United States is used to conduct this anti-COVID-19 campaign.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about coronavirus pandemic and the efforts to tackle it.

Various lockdown measures taken by the Western democracies aim to protect public health against the COVID-19 virus, which has killed millions of people worldwide and is a real danger for populations around the world.

The article’s claim that the US and Western anti-COVID-19 campaigns aim to establish authoritarian control and to abolish individual rights and freedoms is also false. The emergency provisions, such as the curtailment of freedom of movement, are tools that democratic governments need to use, for a limited period of time, in order to rapidly and effectively protect the public health of citizens. During a state of emergency, a government is empowered to perform actions or impose policies that it would normally not be permitted to undertake. But in liberal democracies, emergency measures must be temporary, limited to what is necessary and strictly proportionate. Applying emergency measures does not mean that civil and individual rights are being set aside: human rights instruments - such as the United Nations human rights treaty system - continue to apply even during crises.

Furthermore, there is no evidence to support the article’s claim that a key goal of the anti-COVID-19 campaign in the West is to increase the profits of large pharmaceutical corporations. This claim repeats the Big Pharma conspiracy theory, which did not emerge with the COVID-19 emergency but has a longer history. The narrative of Big Pharma profiteering at the expense of public interests and public health is one of the main messages of this narrative. You can read an analytical report on the Big Pharma conspiracy theory here.

The article’s claim that Joe Biden is an “illegitimate president” is also false. Biden is the legitimate president of the United States: after winning the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden became the 46th US president, elected in what has been described as one of the most secure elections in history. The claims that the Biden administration is illegitimate, because of alleged electoral fraud to the detriment of outgoing President Donald Trump, have been solidly debunked.

Disinfo: Lithuania applies double standards to refugees

Lithuania applies double standards to refugees. People who arrived from Kabul receive full refugee privileges. They are welcome in Lithuania and the EU.

Those who arrived from Belarus will spend winter in the tents behind barbed wire. Almost all got a negative answer about asylum in Lithuania. Now it is just one question: how to kick them out of Lithuania.


This article combines the topic of the migration crisis on the Lithuanian-Belarusian border with that of the evacuation to Lithuania of Afghans who worked with Lithuanian troops.

Over 100 interpreters and their families were evacuated to Lithuania from Afghanistan. These people were in danger of repression from the Taliban due to their collaboration with Lithuanian troops.

Disinfo: Joe Biden's administration uses Russophobia to limit America's gun rights

Joe Biden's administration uses Russophobia to limit America's gun rights. The latest sanctions against Russia go beyond trying to tarnish the image of the country through unproven accusations, they are a clear attack against the Republican Party and the National Rifle Association. As a response to the alleged “poisoning of Alexei Navalny with Novichok”, the Biden Administration imposed a 12-month ban on the “permanent import of fire weapons or ammunitions fabricated or stored in Russia”. As usually happens with US sanctions, no evidence was provided to back the accusations. When it comes to use Russophobia as a geopolitical weapon of last resort, Democrats and Republicans are reading exactly the same script.


Allegations of “Russophobia” are a frequent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative to deflect any criticism for Russia’s illicit actions. In this case, it also aims to frame sanctions by the Biden Administration as a domestic partisan issue against gun rights.

The US imposed additional sanctions on Russia on 20 August 2021 over its use of a Novichok nerve agent in the poisoning of Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny the previous year. And contrary to the claim, these accusations have been proven beyond any doubt.

Disinfo: Crimea Platform was a staged show

A duet of Saakashvili and Zelenskyy put on the show one after the other. "Crimea Platform" is also a show they staged, which was not attended by a single leader of the G7 and G20 countries.


This is an emerging disinformation narrative spread by pro-Kremlin outlets in response to the Crimea Platform Summit, a high-level international conference held in August 2021 that was initiated by Ukraine and focused on Russia's illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

The Crimea Platform summit, held on 23 August in Kyiv, was an international event that established a coordination mechanism to end the occupation of Crimea and guarantee human rights on the peninsula.
