Compiled by Chen Chengliang/Comprehensive Report]The Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) epidemic has not ceased. Countries all over the world are racing against time to develop vaccines. The British Chief of Defense Staff Nick Carter warned that China and Russia are actively launching a “political war”, spreading false news about vaccines, undermining the unity of the West, and attempting to destabilize countries.

Earlier, the New York Times revealed in August that in order to steal the research and development data of the Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) vaccine in the United States, China used its influence in the World Health Organization (WHO) to obtain relevant information and also locked in information The weaker North Carolina University and other academic research institutions engaged in cutting-edge research attacked.

In a speech in a think tank, Carter stated that the Western “authoritarian rivals (meaning China and Russia) manipulate the information environment” and use the epidemic to seek political gain, such as “pro-Russian vaccine politics”.

Russia is trying to destabilize countries by spreading false information about vaccines. He also pointed out that China and Russia are actively launching “political wars” “in order to undermine the cohesion of the entire West.”

He pointed out that anti-vaccine groups in China and Russia spread false news on social media. He cited, for example, that in the pro-Russian city of Luhansk in eastern Ukraine, a website published a fake news in July, falsely claiming that the United States had recruited Ukrainian volunteers to conduct vaccine trials, and some people died in the process. The false information spread quickly.

Carter said that the fake vaccine news is an example of “digital authoritarianism”, in line with Russian President Putin’s Internet and hacker attacks. He emphasized that China is also adopting similar “digital authoritarian” methods to implement Large-scale monitoring and social credit rating mechanisms.

Carter pointed out that China and Russia now regard the strategic environment as a continuous struggle, with the goal of achieving victory without the need to fight: “Using a method that does not trigger a war and hitting our will to achieve our goals.”
