Disinfo: EU must realise that Ukraine’s Government stands for radical nationalism

Summary

According to Anna Soroka, representative of the Luhansk separatists, it is necessary for the EU to realise that the prevalent rhetoric in Ukraine is that of radical nationalism.

Disproof

Repeating a myth about "radical nationalists governing Ukraine" that has already been debunked many times. The vast majority of Ukrainians want peace, stability and democracy, as witnessed by the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held in May 2014, and confirmed by Palriamentary elections held in October 2014.

The EU is draining the Czech Republic economically

The EU is draining the Czech Republic economically. But the true threat of the EU for the Czech Republic is that it supports and manages the Islamic invasion of Europe.

Disproof

The EU does not manage an Islamic invasion. According to the Pew Research Centre, the proportion of Muslims in Europe will rise from 6% to 8% between 2010 and 2030. As regards the EU budget, the Czech Republic receives more than it contributes. In 2015, it received CZK 193.7 billion from the EU budget, whilst contributing CZK 41.9 billion. According to a study by the Office of the Government, without the EU cohesion policy, the Czech GDP would be lower by 4.7% in the long run. More details here and here,
