NYT Discovered Who's Behind U.S.' COVID-19 Panic: It's Vladimir Putin

Click to see full-size image

In an April 13th report, the New York Times discovered that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s long-term was turning into reality with the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S.

“As the pandemic has swept the globe, it has been accompanied by a dangerous surge of false information — an “infodemic,” according to the World Health Organization. Analysts say that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has played a principal role in the spread of false information as part of his wider effort to discredit the West and destroy his enemies from within.”

It all began on February 3rd, when the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic, and “an obscure Twitter account in Moscow began retweeting an American blog. It said the pathogen was a germ weapon designed to incapacitate and kill.”

And it did that despite numerous scientists establishing that it was natural, and not man-made.

And, usually, Putin and his lackeys meddle in elections and so on, thus US officials have disregarded the disruptive work the “evil overlord” could have been carrying out against American science.

“His agents have repeatedly planted and spread the idea that viral epidemics — including flu outbreaks, Ebola and now the coronavirus — were sown by American scientists. The disinformers have also sought to undermine faith in the safety of vaccines, a triumph of public health that Mr. Putin himself promotes at home.”

As such, Putin is apparently also to blame for the popularity of anti-vaxxers.

In his quest to destroy America, Putin uses open media, “secretive trolls” and “shadowy blogs” that present US health officials as “patronizing frauds.”

“Of late, new stealth and sophistication have made his handiwork harder to see, track and fight.”

The YouTube videos of RT, Russia’s global television network, average one million views per day, “the highest among news outlets,” according to a U.S. intelligence report. Since the founding of the Russian network in 2005, its videos have received more than four billion views, analysts recently concluded.

And Putin uses RT to spread his propaganda.

The NYT cited Sandra C. Quinn, a professor of public health at the University of Maryland who has followed “Putin’s vaccine scares for more than a half-decade, said the Russian president was drawing on an old playbook. “

“The difference now is the speed with which it spreads, and the denigration of the institutions that we rely on to understand the truth,” she said in an interview. “I think we’re in dangerous territory.”

All of this is proved by the fact that when he was young Putin served in the KGB.

“The K.G.B. campaign — which cast the deadly virus that causes AIDS as a racial weapon developed by the American military to kill black citizens — was wildly successful. By 1987, fake news stories had run in 25 languages and 80 countries, undermining American diplomacy, especially in Africa. After the Cold War, in 1992, the Russians admitted that the alarms were fraudulent.”

After in 2008, Russia Today was rebranded to RT, to “hide its Russian origins,” the disinformation began.

During the global swine flu pandemic, it cited Wayne Madsen who claimed that the virus was engineered, by the US and not natural.

In 2010, RT America was founded, and its headquarters is near the White House.

In 2012 Mr. Putin added the military to his informational arsenal.

“His newly appointed head of the Russian Army, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, laid out a new doctrine of war that stressed public messaging as a means of stirring foreign dissent. That same year, a shadowy group of trolls in St. Petersburg began using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to fire salvos of junk information at millions of Americans.”

Then 2014 came, and Ebola, and Putin lost no time to have RT spread information that the US actually engineered the disease.

“The trolls in St. Petersburg amplified the claim on Twitter. The deadly virus “is government made,” one tweet declared. Another series of tweets called the microorganism “just a regular bio weapon.” The idea found an audience.

The hip-hop artist Chris Brown echoed it in 2014, telling his 13 million Twitter followers, “I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control.”

Thus, Chris Brown too is possible a Putin agent.

On March 5th, Lea Gabrielle, head of the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, which seeks to identify and fight disinformation, told a Senate hearing that Moscow had pounced on the coronavirus outbreak as a new opportunity to sow chaos and division — to “take advantage of a health crisis where people are terrified.”

“The entire ecosystem of Russian disinformation has been engaged,” she reported. Her center’s analysts and partners, Ms. Gabrielle added, have found “Russian state proxy websites, official state media, as well as swarms of online false personas pushing out false narratives.”

TASS, the Russian news agency, reported that the Foreign Ministry firmly rejected the State Department’s charge.

Regardless, “the truth” is obvious, and the reason behind the COVID-19 hysteria in the US has been discovered – and its unsurprisingly “evil overlord” Vladimir Putin, once again.

“Putin has disseminated false and alarming health narratives not only about pathogens and vaccines but also about radio waves, bioengineered genes, industrial chemicals and other intangibles of modern life. The knotty topics often defy public understanding, making them ideal candidates for sowing confusion over what’s safe and dangerous.

Thank God I read this before going too RT. Whereas before I didn’t realise I was being brainwashed with Putin’s insidious propaganda , now I will Know. If only I had read NYT before , well I did try but the bullshit was so thick I preferred to immerse myself in Putin’s propaganda which tasted much better.

namulit emperor

Look at the comments of the NYT article. They probably all think to be educated people and are completely gullible to ‘Putin did it’… The US has even part of the Coast Guard budget set aside for propaganda expenses…


“Knotty topics defy public understanding”, so it’s quite clear that Putin is responsible for all problems. The Chinese and the US didn’t create the problems, Putin obviously is the problem.

This is fake news corupt shit.The only fault on Putin is he were to busy babysitting Erdogan instead of implementing Brix currency.To avoid petrol dollar and yuan biological weapon currency.


The virus is obviously a NATO Zionist scam of the century. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fe65db2189a6f927e3404b9865ea5606b6d3f76047b9e9c5d52f8cdad0a1c9a7.png


The virus is obviously a NATO Zionist scam of the century. With 90% of the “virus deaths” coming out of NATO countries. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1f872e6f53dd339ff40b6226550a57d0a5833bbdacf6cc8bb4094468f75e6628.png


– Dr. Birx Confirms Anyone Who Dies WITH Coronavirus, Regardless of Any Underlying Health Condition, is Being Counted as a COVID-19 Death –


“The President of the German Robert Koch Institute confirmed on March 20, 2020 that test-positive deceased people are counted as “corona deaths” regardless of the real cause of death: “We consider someone with a corona virus infection to be a corona death … said the RKI President when asked a journalist (see video below).

According to experts, the number of deaths is severely relativized, since the patients die in many cases from their previous illnesses and not from the virus. Data from Italy show that over 99% of the deceased had one or more chronic medical conditions, including cancer and heart problems, and only 12% mentioned the coronavirus on the death certificate as a cofactor.”

– RKI relativizes “corona deaths” –


“I want to stress that they have died having coronavirus, not because of it”, the head of the country’s Civil Protection Department, Angelo Borrelli said at a briefing.”

– Italy’s COVID-19 Death Toll Surges by 627 to 4,032 Over Past 24 Hours – Health Official –

“Prof Ricciardi added that Italy’s death rate may also appear high because of how doctors record fatalities.

“The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus. …

“On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three,” he says.”

– Why have so many coronavirus patients died in Italy?

The country’s high death toll is due to an ageing population, overstretched health system and the way fatalities are reported –


You can’t have global pandemic when only 1 out of the 40 largest cities on the planet, NYC the Jew capitol of the US, has anyone substantially dying of the disease. The virus pandemic is an obvious massive scam. Almost none of the most densely populated areas on the planet. Which are extremely difficult or almost impossible to quarantine for a disease as infectious as the common cold and seasonal flu. Has anyone dying of it in any appreciable numbers that come even close to justifying imploding local, national and the global economies.

I love how brazenly these American government bodies and media outlets accuse others of doing what they do themselves.

New York Times should be renamed to Pot Kettle Black.

Jens Holm

I only see a white chair and not his behind.

I wonder if he will replace Stalin, when he dies.

Traiano Welcome

I’m sure that when he dies he will replace Stalin. If anyone can govern from beyond the grave it is Putin.


There is no controlling stupid. The NYT has been a lost cause for a very longtime.

Traiano Welcome

According to Leviticus 13:21, the priest was to inspect someone who had a disease and could “isolate the affected person for seven days.” He would then re-examine them and could “isolate them for another seven days.”… 14 days … Our quarrantine period seems to be based on quaint old biblical practices ..

“New York City, already a world epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, sharply increased its death toll by more than 3,700 victims on Tuesday, after officials said they were now including people who had never tested positive for the virus but were presumed to have died of it.”
