Estonian society is most concerned about the Islamization of Europe

Estonian society is most concerned about the Islamization of Europe.

Estonia sees what is done in France, England, Germany, Sweden and other countries when where they are trying to resettle Africa to Europe. Estonia sees the danger that is moving towards it too, and this is not a joke.

Disproof

According to the latest data from Eurobarometer, 65% of Estonians think that the most important issue facing the EU is immigration, on the second place is terrorism with 25% and public finances is third with 14%. The most important issues facing Estonia are inflation and rising prices, followed by healthcare and taxes. Islamization did not make it to the list.

Belarus has began de-russification and is imposing Belarusian language

Belarus is moving in the direction of a “de-russification”. This involves imposing statutory measures such as the Belarusian language, [Catholic] churches, vyshyvankas and the Latin alphabet in what is termed as a ‘gradual soft Belarusianisation’. This inevitably turns Belarus into an enemy, moving it from the Russian cultural space into a Polish-Lithuanian one.

Disproof

No evidence given.

The Belarusian constitution provides equal status of the two official languages – Belarusian and Russian (Article 17) – as well as equal status of religions in the country (Article 16). In practice, the majority of official correspondence, state media and education in Belarus operate in Russian.

The West always knew the Douma hospital videos were fake

The West knew from the beginning about the simulations of a chemical attack in Syria. The fake character of the video cannot and should not be questioned by anyone.
