World Russian People's Assembly, led by Patriarch Kirill, demands investigation into causes of pandemic

Moscow, May 18, Interfax - The human rights center of the World Russian People's Assembly, which is led by Patriarch Kirill, has asked Russia's Prosecutor General's Office and Investigative Committee to look into the circumstances under which the coronavirus pandemic arose and turn their attention to the production of a vaccine.

"We are asking for a prosecutorial probe with a subsequent objective investigation into the circumstances that led to the appearance and spread [...] of the Covid-19 virus pandemic worldwide and in Russia, including those which led to death and to the infliction of harm to the health of Russian citizens," the appeal, which was obtained by Interfax, said.

The authors of the appeal are concerned about the indications of coronavirus having been deliberately created, as well as the malicious spread of both the infection and fake information about it on the Russian segment of the Internet.

In addition, the World Russian People's Assembly is calling for a prosecutorial probe in the sphere of the development and production of a Covid-19 vaccine with regard for a national security strategy, including a probe into whether independent studies in this sphere are being conducted solely by Russian scientists and under the control of the relevant Russian bodies.

The World Russian People's Assembly is also concerned about centralized development and production of vaccines and the creation of a genetic database of various ethnicities, which creates the preconditions for the creation of ethnic-genetic biological weapons in the situation of it falling into the hands of persons with malicious intentions.

The World Russian People's Assembly is an international public organization. It was created in 1993. In 2005, the World Russian People's Assembly was granted a special consultative status in the UN.
