Russia and China cooperate with peddling madness US COVID lab theory
The PAVEL GOLOVKIN / POOL / AFP Cold War via Getty Images could come back with revenge, and the top US enemies are crushing some old Soviet tactics. Russian and Chinese government officials recently collaborated to publicly condemn the creation of the United States Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council, told the Russian daily Kommersant on Thursday: It states as follows. Under US control, it is growing exponentially around the world. And, by a strange coincidence, it is mainly near the border between Russia and China. “The outbreak of a characteristic disease,” added Patrushev, who was the director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the successor to the Soviet KGB. “These areas” are recorded in the areas adjacent to these alleged biolabs. He then publicly accused the United States of developing biological weapons at these facilities. Like a clockwork, the Russian mass media repeatedly spread Patrushev’s criticism of the United States, but this time with an official statement tweeted by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian: “U.S.A. Bio-military activities are not transparent, safe, or justified. In Ukraine alone, the United States has set up 16 biolabs. Why does the United States need so many laboratories around the world? Fort What are they doing at these laboratories, including the Detrick Institute? ”Russian national media is preparing for the war’to the West’Zhao at an official press conference A case that expressed the same accusations and identified Russia as his source of information. “I recently noticed that Russia asked the United States again about its military and biological activities in Fort Detrick and Ukraine,” Zhao said. “Other countries have expressed similar concerns.” Unfounded claims against the United States and Ukraine have recently come at a particularly convenient time for Putin, who has stepped up the Kremlin’s efforts to absorb the Donbas region. In February of this year, the President of Russia, ominously, promised:[The Kremlin] Never turn [its] Kremlin-funded RT and Sputnik editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan doubled to encourage Russia to take over East Ukraine and repeatedly urged “mother Russia” to “take Donbas home.” Kremlin is very coveted, just as Trump helped the outbreak of violence against Asia by presenting Ukraine as a national security threat to Russia and claiming its involvement in the production of deadly biological weapons. An increasingly aggressive attitude towards the affected neighborhoods can be further justified-Americans call COVID-19 the “Chinese virus” and make unfounded claims that the virus was created at the Wuhan Institute of Veterans Affairs. By spreading, US opposition has sought to foster that kind of hostility towards the United States on a global scale. Both Russia and China are standing. It is even more so for the Kremlin if it can benefit from blaming the US pandemic, and Ukraine is also theoretically involved. This is not the first time Russia claims that the United States has caused and spread deadly illnesses around the world. In 1992, Russia perpetuated the KGB’s information breach campaign, falsely claiming that the virus that caused AIDS was the result of a biological weapons experiment. During the 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, Russian propaganda outlets spread a conspiracy theory that the virus was created by the United States in collaboration with the United Kingdom and South Africa. These leaking tactics have another common denominator. In addition to accusing the United States of engaging in global biological weapons, the Kremlin also positions itself as a lone savior. “[Russia] Saved Africa from Ebola. ” Olga Skaveeva of Russia’s national television 60 Minutes proudly declared last month. Russian state media are trying to undermine the credibility of the COVID-19 vaccine produced by Western nations, while the world’s “Sputnik V” continues to emerge despite nasty information about Russian-made vaccines. Frequently praised as the best coronavirus vaccine. Russian propagandists do not believe in the idea that the United States could commit the worst kind of abuse against humanity and are resorting to the now too familiar dehumanization tactics to promote it.[Americans] RT Margherita Simonyan recently declared on Russian television. “We are soulful.
