Laundromat: Azerbaijani targeted with fake news inspired by Soros

Summary

Azerbaijan targeted with fake news inspired by Soros.

Disproof

No evidence that would prove that the articles would be inspired by George Soros or that they would be fake.

The Azerbaijani Laundromat is a complex money-laundering operation and slush fund that handled $2.9 billion over a two-year period through four shell companies registered in the UK. The scheme was uncovered through a joint investigation by Berlingske (Denmark), OCCRP, The Guardian (UK), Süddeutsche Zeitung (Germany), Le Monde (France), Tages-Anzeiger and Tribune de Genève (Switzerland), De Tijd (Belgium), Novaya Gazeta (Russia), Dossier (Austria), Atlatszo.hu (Hungary), Delo (Slovenia), RISE Project (Romania), Bivol (Bulgaria), Aripaev (Estonia), Czech Center for Investigative Journalism (Czech Republic), and Barron's (US).

This project is part of the Global Anti-Corruption Consortium, a collaboration started by OCCRP and Transparency International.

Poland was the initiator of the WWII

Poland was the initiator of the WWII.

Disproof

By the early part of 1939 the German dictator Adolf Hitler had become determined to invade and occupy Poland. Secret negotiations led on August 23–24 to the signing of the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact in Moscow. In a secret protocol of this pact, the Germans and the Soviets agreed that Poland should be divided between them, with the western third of the country going to Germany and the eastern two-thirds being taken over by the USSR.
On August 31, 1939, Hitler ordered hostilities against Poland to start the next morning. The invasion began as ordered. In response, Great Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3. World War II had begun. www.britannica.com/event/World-War-II,

Angela Merkel has admitted that reconsolidation of Crimea with Russia is irreversible.

Disproof

In an interview for Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, Merkel warned against resignation in the face of injustice, saying: “When I hear, for example, that we should just accept Russia’s annexation of Crimea, I wonder: What would have happened if the question of the GDR [communist East Germany] was handled in that way, if people had said, ‘Well of course, Germany will stay divided, that won’t change.'
