NATO Secretary General accuses Russia and China of spreading misinformation

Russia and China, even in the context of the global coronavirus pandemic, continue to disseminate large amounts of misinformation, thereby trying to change the current world order. This statement was made by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Repubblica newspaper.


Answering a journalist’s question about NATO’s “propaganda of Russia and China” against the backdrop of Italy’s assistance in the fight against coronavirus, the Alliance’s Secretary General said that such actions are being taken by the two governments to “weaken democracy and destabilize the world order”.

The actors, some of whom are associated with the authorities of the Russian Federation and China, have spread a large amount of misinformation and propaganda, trying to distort the facts. Such actions are incorrect

- he said.

At the same time, Stoltenberg emphasized that, unlike Russia and China, engaged in propaganda and disinformation, NATO actually demonstrated the unity of the countries before the pandemic and their willingness to help each other.

We (NATO members) have in fact demonstrated that we are united and help each other. This, along with the work of independent media, is the best answer to so many fake News

- explained the secretary general.

In addition, Stoltenberg, answering the question about the correctness of the act of Italy, which took help in the fight against coronavirus from Russia, and not from the member countries of the alliance, said that this was the choice of Italians. He emphasized that the countries themselves decide from whom to accept assistance in such cases, but must take measures so that this assistance is not used in the dissemination of misinformation, as Russia does.

            Is it at the same time when these same countries were stealing and "confiscating" masks and medical equipment from each other?

          1399 for 50pcs. it is 26 rubles. a piece. And where is the living here? A pack of parliament costs under 200 rubles. Something no one writes that Karl Lagerfeld himself twists them

            In the package of "parliament" excise taxes and other taxes are several times higher than their cost + profit rate. The whole point is that masks a couple of months ago cost several times less. Raw materials have risen in price, or "wolf laws of the market"? But for some reason no one remembered how to demolish garages in St. Petersburg to free up a plot for the construction of a paid WHSD. They gave the owners a kick in the ass and made room for them. I don’t remember the "market" compensation for them.

              well, God be with him, with parliament. I do not smoke and do not advise others. Take ordinary men's socks. They have no more materials, but they cost from 85 rubles for a couple or more (moreover, for 85 this is frank g). Ordinary construction gloves with pimples - 25 re on average. And there, too, the contents at once shovel wave. I do not understand your selectivity.
              just how to demolish garages

              if there was an opportunity to get to the bottom of the "illegality of construction", then why be indignant if they got to the bottom of it.

                The garages were capital and in fair numbers. Everything was legal until the land under the WHSD was required. No one was paid any market compensation. In such cases, even a law was adopted on the exemption for "state needs". If the land was owned, they would be kicked out anyway. Or they would value the property for a broken penny. Kick in the ass and get out. Walk then, swallow dust on the courts for ten or twenty years.

                Read at your leisure: Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 02.04.2020 No. 417
                quote:

                3. When introducing a high alert or emergency in a territory where there is a threat of an emergency, or in an emergency zone, citizens must:

                c) upon receipt of instructions (instructions) from authorized officials, including through the media or communication operators, to evacuate from the territory in which there is a threat of an emergency, or from the emergency zone and (or) use collective and personal protection[/at] and other property (if provided by the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, local authorities and organizations[at]) designed to protect the public from emergency situations;

                The government decree says in black and white where masks (personal protective equipment) should come from and who and to whom should provide them.

                The question arises: for whom is this resolution issued if the authorities themselves do not comply with it (regarding the provision of masks and the requirement to use them)?

    I'd like to take a pan and slap it well ....

    This and we have some such individuals on grants, called the Atlantic Council. They wanted to expel the Russian ambassador. On May 9, the Russian ambassador, there people from Varna and the Russians who live in Bulgaria went to bring flowers to the monument. Then there was still quarantine and some kind of individual called the police for violating the rules. The children from the Atlantic Council were dead, because the policemen came, put on the St. George ribbons and began to act in film with the people and the ambassador. Then they said goodbye and did not write any act, but left .... laughing

    "propaganda of Russia and China" against the background of the assistance provided to Italy in the fight against coronavirus, the secretary general of the alliance said that such actions are being taken by the governments of the two countries to "weaken democracy and destabilize the world order."

    What a shitty world order they have, if you can destabilize it from a distance from a distance ....
    We don’t need to go to Europe ....
    China is clearly smarter if these themselves weaken and destabilize.
    Interestingly, does the Secretary General have a critical attitude to his own words?
    Or, disgracing the whole of Western civilization, he will continue to fool people beyond their heads with the superiority of Western civilization ...

    Russia and China, even in the face of the global coronavirus pandemic, continue to spread disinformation in large numbers, thereby trying to change the prevailing world order.

    Accuse Russia of understating mortality from coronavirus. So in the USA there are many fat people (diabetes, cardiovascular, etc.) - a risk factor for coronavirus. In the West, more elderly than in Russia are also a risk factor.
