Chemical weapon attacks in Syria are western provocations

Summary

Bashar al- Assad did not use chemical weapons and he did not deed it at all.

Father and daughter Skripals were double agents. The British government said that they had been ”poisoned” by Putin and ”died”, however it turns out that both feel wonderful, have no problems and nothing threatens them. Now, the British Special Services have decided to hide them. What is going on is shameful. How many times Russia should defeat the West? We all know why the West started this misfortune in Syria.

Disproof

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Sergei Skripal poisoning, and chemical attack in Douma, Syria. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77329&date=, https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=, https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77353&date=

On April 7, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

The UN issues an order in Georgia to sexualise five-year-old children

The UNESCO’s revised edition of the International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education abolishes parental rights, demoralizes children and “imposes depraved ideology of homosexuals on them.” In addition “the comprehensive recommendations endorsed by the Americans” oblige kindergarten and school teachers to teach children about “gender ideology of homosexuals widespread in the West and their perverted sexual practice.”

Disproof

No evidence given. UNESCO does not have authority over UN Member States in matters relating to sexual education.

Incest is legal in Norway

Incest has been legalized in Norway. Hence, it would be better if Norwegians, who pollute the world, would not have been born at all.

Disproof

Incest is illegal in Norway, punishable with prison up to 6 years. 

Portraying Nordic countries as especially immoral has been a recurring narrative in pro-Kremlin disinformation in Georgia and other orthodox countries. The story is in line with similar disinformation stories about moral decay in Europe. Thus, a particularly persistent claim is that sexual abuse of children is a norm in Norwegian families, and Russian nationwide TV has spent airtime explaining that embracing LGTBI rights paves the way for accepting paedohilia.euvsdisinfo.eu/no-denmark-is-not-legalising-sexual-abuse-of-animals/,

The Nazis have seized power in Ukraine

Cancer cannot be cured with aspirin. Cancer is treated only by surgical intervention. It is a cancer tumour called “Nazism”, which seized power in Ukraine, and which can be cut off by surgical means. In plain language: by military operation.

As witnessed by the democratic Early Parliament elections held on 26 October 2014, Ukraine is governed by a democratically elected Parliament. The OSCE characterized the elections as “an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments”, offering voters “real choice” and “a general respect for fundamental freedoms”. According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook increasing attempts to derail the process. There was no possibility also to carry out the elections in the Crimean Peninsula annexed by Russia the same year http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true   The far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that http://bit.ly/2dFFEdi  .
