Disinfo: Western vaccines are developed for financial speculation whereas Russian vaccines are to save lives

Summary

There are two type of Vaccines, the Western ones and the ones of the BRICS, like the Russian ones.

On the one hand, Western vaccines are based on new and unproven technologies. Their communication is orchestrated to favour speculation on the stock exchange. There is a bidding war for vaccines with efficiency of 90%, 92%, 94.8%… But the full results of the tests are not published and if some people die from the vaccine, or for another reason, the tests will have to be stopped or speed down. All of this is opaque and unclear. They progress to make the most profit from speculation.

On the other hand, Russian vaccines, like Sputnik V are base on proven technologies. Russians are totally open concerning the development of the vaccine. Everything is published, there is no shadow zone at all. They progress in a logical way in the interest of the population.

The problem is people don’t trust everything that comes from Russia. Even though we are explained that Russian science can create the best pathogen viruses and neurotoxic agent in the world. Development of a vaccine is exactly the same scientific procedure. So if they have advanced chemical weapons, it is the same with vaccines.

Disproof

Disinformation message that tries to cast doubt about the vaccines developed by Western companies.

The fact that Pfizer Chief Executive Albert Bourla sold $5.6m of stock he owned in the company is part of a pre-arranged 10b5-1 plan. Such plans allow executives and other corporate insiders to sell a number of shares within a pre-determined timeframe and price range, so as to avoid allegations of using non-public company information for personal gain.

While Russian vaccine Sputnik V was declared by the pro-Kremlin media to be the first vaccine ever registered in the world, it was announced even before the start of phase 3 of the clinical trials, normally required for any new drug. The Russian association of organisations on clinical trials urged Russia to postpone registration, because it had not even been tested by hundreds of people.

The fact that the Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology developed the vaccine Sputnik V financed by the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) rather than from a company listed on a stock exchange doesn't make the development process more transparent or free of political and financial interests. Open media published an investigation in October 2020 about the interest links of the Gamaleya Center and its subsidiaries.

No proof of human rights abuses in Crimea

According to a leading Russian politician, accusations of human rights violations on the Crimean Peninsula are an invention. Therefore, UN officials are welcome to visit Crimea and see the truth for themselves.

After the UN adopted a resolution condemning alleged discrimination in Crimea, which was reabsorbed by Russia in 2014, Leonid Slutsky, the chairman of the Russian Parliament’s Committee on International Affairs, said the body was “biased.”

Russia has repeatedly invited journalists and observers to visit the peninsula in the past. However, Kiev has sought to make any journeys difficult, threatening to blacklist and bar anyone who crosses into Crimea without having first been through Ukraine on a valid visa.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Crimea was not “reabsorbed” by Russia. It has been annexed by Russia, and its ongoing illegal occupation has yet to be accepted by any international body.

Biden risks 3 years for usurpation of power

The US State Department reminded world leaders that the counting of votes in the presidential elections is not over yet and it is too early to congratulate Biden on his victory. But despite this, the American press already considers the Democrat the new head of state, and Biden himself assures that the transfer of power cannot be stopped. He has already got used to the role, he addresses the nation every day and negotiates with the leaders of other countries on behalf of the United States, although for this violation of the law, in fact, three years in prison is imposed.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the 2020 US election.

The incoming president is called "president elect" until the inauguration in January 2021. He assembles a group called a transition team who prepare to assume power after inauguration - and the Biden team has already set up a transition website. Nothing beyond this legal framework has been done by Joe Biden to risk "3 years in prison".

Finland has decided to buy 64 fighters from the US

Finland has decided to buy 64 fifth generation fighters from the US for 12,5billion $, which are able to carry American nuclear bombs. Maybe Finns are not aware that all Iskanders [short-range ballistic missile system] at the Leningrad Oblast now most likely look not only at the Baltic countries, but also at Finns.

These new capabilities might create willingness, in the future, for Finland to redraw the map [referring to the parts of Finland lost in the WWII to the Soviet Union].

Disproof

The decision to procure multi-role fighters will be made by the Finnish Government only in 2021.

All in all, the fighter procurement will take 10 to 15 years to complete. For further details on the timeline see here. The options on the table are two fighter models from the US, and one from France, UK, and Sweden.
