Disinfo: Amnesty International has secret links to international terror groups

Summary

Amnesty International has secret links to international terror groups. The organisation has received a “multi-million budget in U.S. dollars,” that was earmarked to covertly “encourage international terrorism.”

Disproof

No evidence given for the claims.

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting civil uprisings in other states as US-funded "colour revolutions", consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role. 

Amnesty International is one of the worlds biggest and most well-renowned Human Rights organisations. They investigate and expose the facts in cases of abuses of human rights. More on the funding of Amnesty here

Kyiv attempts to enter Russian airspace, flying over Crimea

Kyiv attempts to enter Russian airspace, flying over Crimea.

Disproof

According to Ukraine, Kyiv has not violated Russian airspace and according to ICAO rules, Ukraine can do what it likes within the confines of its own airspace without any coordination with neighboring countries. In 2014 the International Civil Aviation Organization officially confirmed that the airspace over Crimea belongs to Ukraine. More details from StopFake.

Czech NGO People in Need is a Soros-funded intelligence organisation

People in Need (the Czech humanitarian NGO) is in fact an intelligence organisation serving in favour of NED and George Soros’ OSF, which are providing its financing. That is why the People in Need were expelled from DPR by local separatists.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming  George Soros aims to destabilise countries and topple regimes in post-communist  Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. See here for similar cases.

Ukraine is playing the victim after one year without Russian gas

Forbes article states that Ukraine is playing the victim after one year without Russian gas.

Disproof

Distorted translation. In fact, the Forbes article does not mention anything about Ukraine being a victim, on the contrary the article states that Ukraine is celebrating their one year of independence from Russian gas bit.ly/2h30vtW, .
