An anti-vax conspiracy theorist, who previously protested outside Leo Varadkar’s home, has claimed that “Ukraine are bombing their own people” in his latest rant.

Graham Carey, one of many of anti-vaxxers who has been involved in protests outside the private addresses of politicians in the past year, shared his latest conspiracy theory about the Russian invasion of Ukraine in a video posted on Twitter by Ireland Against Fascism.

In the clip, the Finglas native makes a series of bizarre claims about Ukraine’s “puppet government” and the invasion by Russian forces.

“[Ukraine] blocking me because of what’s going on in Russia because I’m telling you the truth,” he says in the video.

“Many others are going to get blocked and have their pages removed. They are applying to Google and Facebook to remove accounts who are spreading disinformation about Ukraine,” he adds, using his fingers to imply air quotes.

“Ukraine are bombing their own people, it looks like. From what I’m seeing, they’re bombing their own people.

“A lot of mistakes were made from the mainstream media. They’re not mistakes – they're purposely lying to you about it and are going to be blocking people like me for telling you the truth.

“Putin has destroyed 11 biolabs in Ukraine that were brought in by the Biden family back in 2014/2015.

“We also have Ukrainian rebels fighting on the side of the Russians. You won’t hear any of this on the news. They’re trying to get rid of their government because they’re evil b*****ds.”

He then says that NATO are “parking weapons on Russia’s doorstep.”

Carey’s claims have been debunked by fact-checking organisation Politifact.

The website states that there are no US-run biological weapons labs operating in Ukraine.

"While the US may provide funding to upgrade or build labs in other countries, the labs are run by the partnering nations and the program’s goal is to prevent biological threats, not create them. It’s the latest claim in a series of disinformation efforts by the Russians," the website says.

There is no evidence to back up the other claims made in the video.
