DISINFO: WHO does not cure, but cripples


WHO recommendations (for the treatment of coronavirus) contain many controversial, unfounded prescriptions. WHO does not cure, but cripples. And here it is - the beginning of solving the problem of overpopulation of our planet. And vaccination is a control shot.

Аlmost a fifth of the WHO budget is in the hands of private lobbyists pursuing their own interests, including organisations officially recognised as undesirable in Russia, such as the Soros Foundations and the MacArthur Foundation. Together, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world's leading vaccine and pharmaceutical lobbyist, and the GAVI vaccine alliance they created, accounted for 18.75% of WHO's budget in 2018-2019.


Conspiracy theory not backed by evidence, exploiting recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about WHO, Bill Gates and the coronavirus pandemic.

This is part of a long-term disinformation campaign exploiting COVID-19 and its consequences.

The WHO COVID-19 Clinical living guidance contains the Organization’s most up-to-date recommendations for the clinical management of people with COVID-19. The WHO treatment recommendations are based on enormous trials conducted by many medical centres and researchers around the world and are judged by experts.

WHO’s Programme Budget is financed through a mix of assessed and voluntary contributions, the WHO website explains. There is no proof that private foundations, like Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or Soros Foundation, which sponsor the WHO, impact the WHO's decision-making as they wish.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Coronovirus is a Western operation, the WHO is controlled by Bill Gates, that WHO proves to be a criminal organisation, or that WHO is involved with vaccines (or rather, chemical weapons), which should reduce the population.
