Eastern Europe is left behind as the rich Europeans unite

Summary

The Aachen agreement between Germany and France creates a high-speed Europe relying on French nuclear weapons and German industry. Eastern Europe will be hopelessly outside this Brave New World, created by the rich Europeans.

Disproof

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, stated at a speech on the occasion of the signing of the Aachen agreement, that the agreement is strengthening European integration

According to the Financial Times, rather than an inevitable march towards a Franco-German superstate, diplomats say the treaty is like its predecessors: a way to avoid outright economic and diplomatic competition between the EU’s strongest continental powers and keep some focus on shared projects.

Neo-Nazis are increasingly influential in the Ukrainian parliament and government

In Ukraine, neo-Nazis are increasingly influential in the parliamentary system and government. Their presence in political system is the result of the Maidan coup in Ukraine.

“Reports about the murderous activities of the neo-Nazis and their dominating influence on parliament and government are completely taboo”.

“The East Ukrainian population resisted the Maidan coup and since then has to suffer Poroshenko leading one military attack after another against them”.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that has been repeated since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution and coup in Ukraine.

There are no Nazis in the government nor in the parliament of Ukraine. The insignificance of the "Right Sector" is evident from the election results – their candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections. It is far short of the threshold needed to enter the parliament.

Russia has the lowest child mortality rate in the world

Russia has the lowest child mortality rate in the world. It is an official UN data. Last year, we had a record low child mortality rate.

Disproof

According to the data for 2017, provided by the UNICEF, a specialised UN agency, child mortality rate (under age 5, per 1,000 live births) in the Russian Federation equals 7.6. It is one of the highest in Europe. The child mortality rate in the US is 6.6, in the UK – 4.3, in Belarus and Germany - 3.7, in Estonia – 2.7. The lowest child mortality were noted for Norway (2.6), Finland (2.3), and Iceland (2.1).

The same data is provided by the World Bank.

Russian movies as target of language inquisition in Latvia

Russian movies have become the target of ‘language inquisition’ in Latvia.

The movie theatre in Daugavpils was charged for showing movies in Russian language.

Disproof

According to the Latvian law, movies can be shown in the original language, but have to be subtitled or dubbed in Latvian. In practice, if the movie theatres can provide parallel movie séances, then the movies can also be shown in original language without subtitling or dubbing or can be shown with dubbing or subtitling in other languages. This is the case in other movie theatres that show, for example, Hollywood produced animations for kids, in parallel with movie séances dubbed in Latvian and in Russian.

The movie theatre in Daugavpils was charged neither for showing Russian movies nor for showing movies in Russian language, but for not providing the same movie dubbed or even subtitled in Latvian.
