The public opinion is turning from politically correct liberal ideology to mental illness

Summary

The rise in activities against the Russian threat is directly connected to drafting the new Norwegian defence budget.

Facts are not noticed even when Moscow is waving them under the nose, this happened with the witnesses of the Douma fake gas attack who were brought to Hague.

The situation is becoming worse as the public opinion is turning from politically correct liberal ideology to becoming mentally ill.

 

Disproof

Regarding the draft defence budget, its actually exactly the opposite - European countries have been increasing their defence spending after the acts of aggression by Russian  military forces in Ukraine.

The claim is probably a reference to Russia bringing witnesses to a meeting at OPCW. "Russia has been accused of carrying out an “obscene masquerade” for transporting 17 Syrian people to Europe to assert that no chemical weapons attack occurred in the town of Douma earlier this month," The Guardian reports. Numerous countries called for an end to such unacceptable Russian defamation of the OPCW. They also called the so-called information meeting at OPCW headquarters that Russia held 'nothing more than a crude propaganda exercise'. See similar cases here. 

Claims about public opinion are similar to other examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation about the moral decay of Europe. "Threatened values" is one of the most common narratives used by pro-Kremlin outlets. See also earlier cases alleging that in contrast to Russia, western Europe is abandoning Christian roots and that unlike Russia, the West is not about fairness or solidarity and it degrades traditional values and endangers societies. Furthermore, all-Russian history is highly moral as opposed to the Western one, which is full of violence and evil, and all high-ranking politicians in the Baltic states are likely implicated in paedophilia.

The change of the situation in Donbas depends solely on Kyiv

The normalisation of relations with Russia is determined by the implementation of the Minsk agreements, but here everything is very complicated. (…) The change of the situation in Donbas depends solely on Kyiv. Therefore, the conditions imposed on Russia are practically unattainable.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine and the Minsk agreements, portraying Ukraine as the primary violator of the cease-fire.

The change of the situation in Donbas depends not only on Ukraine, but also on Russia. There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine. The EU has condemned the clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014.

Poland wants to divide Europe into two camps to strengthen its leadership within Europe

Poland might divide NATO and Europe into two camps in the near future. Poland says that its energy security is provided not by Germany or France, but  by the US. They want to buy American liquefied natural gas even though it is more expensive than Russian gas. Because of political reasons, Poland is going to divide Europe to carry out its plans and strengthen its dominant role in Europe.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory perpetuating a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about russophobic Poland and the US presence in Europe.

Poland and the Baltic States are often accused by the pro-Kremlin media of obeying the USA in order to counter Western Europe.

The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is not an “unusual” document

For some reason, there is an impression that the non-aggression pact was signed only between Germany and the USSR. Before the outbreak of WWII, the UK, France, Lithuania, Latvia, Denmark, and Estonia signed non-aggression pacts with Germany.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by the statements that other European countries signed various international agreements with Germany after Adolf Hitler came into power. See other examples referring to the Molotov-Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact here, here and here.

First of all, it is impossible to compare the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact with various agreements signed between Germany and other European countries throughout the 1930s. There is no historical evidence that these agreements contained any secret protocols, which assumed common aggressive actions of Germany and these countries against third parties.
