Disinfo: Douma chemichal attack was a provocation by the White Helmets


The alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma was a grotesque provocation by US-backed terrorists and their propaganda agents, known as the White Helmets.

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on chemical attack in Douma, Syria and the White Helmets. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=douma&disinfo_issue=&date= On 7 April 2018, 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. According to the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission's preliminary report, various chlorinated organic chemicals were found in samples. No organophosphorus nerve agents or their degradation products were detected.

Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. UN-OPCW 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. http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HRC/IICISyria/Pages/IndependentInternationalCommission.aspx

English-speaking experts arrived to Idlib to perform chemical attack

Világyfigyelő reported that Russian Ministry of Defense spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said English-speaking specialist had arrived to Idlib, who would then stage a chemical attack against the civilian population there “within two days.” Konashenkov said that the attack would take place in the town of Kafer-Zait. Vilagfigyelo added that the attack will be blamed on the Assad regime. Konasenkov added that Washington and his allies are preparing another aggressive step, which is evidenced by the fact – for example – that on August 22, representatives of the US, UK and France said that they would respond “as determinedly as possible” if the Syrian government wanted to use chemical weapons. According to Konashenkov, there was “no basis” for this statement.


There is no evidence given either by the article or the Russian MoD that militiants or Western powers are preparing a staged chemical attack in Syria. The Kremlin and the Syrian regime has long blamed the West for chemical attacks/staging chamical attacks in the country. Additionally, the joint statement of the US, UK and France was not without any basis, as they made the statement on the occasion of the fifth annyversary of the Ghouta sarin gas attack. abcn.ws/2Nalye8, The attack should have already happened - which is clearly not the case.

Europe is close to legalising paedophilia

On June 20, a video recording of TV Channel TED’s educational programme was published. It focused on the following main points: – paedophiles are also human beings, this is not a crime, but sexual orientation -a paedophile cannot be held responsible for his/her feelings. He / she is not a criminal -we should respect others’ sexual orientation -we should not exasperate paedophiles’ pain by ridiculing, judging and persecuting them -we should see the difference between paedophilia and sexual violence against children. Violence is bad, paedophilia is good and normal -sexual violence against children is the result of the weakness of a paedophile’s delicate soul, as a paedophile cannot speak openly about his / her orientation. Permanent social pressure is added to this: it is difficult for a ”poor” paedophile to appear at the beach, as there are children there and they all wear bathing suits. -society is responsible for paedophiles’ sexual crime It seems that transformation from the stage of ”unimaginable” to ”an effective norm” with regard to paedophilia is going on extremely quickly in Europe.


A recurring conspiracy theory in pro-Kremlin disinformation euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=paedophilia&disinfo_issue=&date=, . There are no plans to legalise paedophilia, on the contrary, the Council and the European Parliament adopted on 13 December 2011a Directive on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, stepping up the fight against child sexual abuse. ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/organized-crime-and-human-trafficking/child-sexual-abuse_en, Read more on the controversial TEDx Talk here www.snopes.com/fact-check/tedx-pedophilia-sexual-orientation/, See more here: euvsdisinfo.eu/old-disinformation-finds-fresh-ground-in-serbia-targets-the-eu/,

EU legislature forces Georgian authorities to kidnap children from their parents

The agency of Sergeenko [Minister of Health, Labour, and Social Affairs] started kidnapping children from parents on the basis of the European-Juvenile legislature initiated by Tsulukiani [Minister of Justice]… So, the juvenile-satanic justice (about which our newspaper has warned about for years) was put in action with its hellish abnormality!


It is not clear what legislation the disinformation is referring to, but there is no EU legislation that would force any Government (be it an EU or non-EU state) to steal children from their parents. It is, however, a recurring disinformation narrative in the pro-Kremlin sphere. See here for a similar case.
