EU fighting vehicles were sent to suppress the French Maidan

Summary of Disinformation

It is not only the local police that are trying to stop the yellow vests protests in France, but also the military equipment of the EU. Armoured military vehicles with the EU flag are used against unarmed European protesters, who demonstrate against the EU-supported authoritarian regime. The EU is not a project of peace.

 

Disproof

EU does not own any military vehicles nor has it sent any to France.

French gendarmerie deployed several armoured vehicles. One of them was marked with the EU flag, as it had previously been used in a European training exercise.
