Slowly, incest is being legalised in Europe

Slowly, incest is being legalised in Europe. Especially in Scandinavia some politicians openly say that incest is a “gender norm”. Like homophobia, incestophobia will also become punishable. In 2011 in Germany, 38 500 children were taken away from their families against their will and handed over to same sex families.

Disproof

The video was published on Facebook in November 2017. On January 23 in 2018 it had been shared over 8 400 times.

The Baltic countries are driving the EU’s EaP policies with one single aim – to weaken Moscow

The Baltic countries are driving the EU’s Eastern Partnership policies with one single aim – to weaken Moscow

Disproof

No evidence given. In fact, the Eastern Partnership initiative is not against any country; it is a mutually beneficial and constructive platform for countries in the region to build a closer relationship with the EU, if they so choose. The EU does not demand that any of its partners need to make a choice between the EU or any other countries. We stand for good neighbourly relations. The Eastern Partnership respects the individual aspirations and ambition of each partner country eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/35712/myths-about-eastern-partnership-factsheet_en, .
