On February 8, Levan Markhulia uploaded a video to a public Facebook group “საერთო სახალხო მოძრაობა ქართველი ერის გადარჩენისთვის!” (United popular movement to save Georgian nation!) a video titled “Bill’s plans  He is now targeting Russians “. In the video, Gates says in Russian that he plans to “insert chips” in Russians first.


The Russian dubbing of the disseminated video is fake. Actually, Gates talks in English about managing COVID-19 in the US in the original video. The video belongs to a humorist user of TIkTok, who mentions in the bio that all the videos on the channel are humorous and do not correspond to reality.

  • Bill Gates and other famous people dubbed by the Russian TokToker

The video shows that it is from TikTok and it belongs to a user called a.albertum.


The bio of the given user shows a warning that all the disseminated videos are humorous.



Russian dubbing of Bill Gates, where the American philanthropist promises Russian people to insert chips in them, is a.albertum’s first video, uploaded on February 7.


In fact, the video footage is from Gates’ CNBC interview from October 14, 2020. Gates touched upon several issues in the interview, but inserting chips in Russian people was not among the said issues. In the specific segment, which was disseminated with Russian dubbing, Gates was talking about how the US could manage the spread of coronavirus. The given issue is also mentioned in the subtitles to the video.


On February 9, the same TikTok user published humorous videos dubbing Elon Musk and Angela Merkel in Russian, where Musk notes that he is not American, was living in a “Khrushchyovka” in Murmansk and it was there that he first tasted vodka, while Merkel presents herself as the most beautiful woman in the EU.
