The EU imposes gender neutrality on Georgian kindergartens

Summary

Based on EU recommendations, the Georgian government introduced gender neutral education in kindergartens. Under the new rules, children will not be distinguished by their gender. Children will decide for themselves whether they want to be a girl or a boy in the future. 

 

 

Disproof

No evidence given to support this claim. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the moral decay of Europe and propaganda of the morally corrupt West. The Georgian government’s 2017 professional standards on preschool education outline an inclusive approach to children, i.e. that they should be equally involved in all preschool activities despite their religion, ethnic background, gender, etc. Teachers should not discriminate against children based on their gender and should facilitate their full and equal inclusion in the preschool education programme. These standards stipulate nothing about allowing children to choose their own gender.

The Moldovan Government is a “puppet” of George Soros

The Moldova’s minister of justice Ms Stamate did not work in vain at the Soros Foundation. After the training she is set up and acting not in the public interest, but according to the clear instructions of foreign curators.

The main goal of the prime minister and her ministers is not the welfare of the Moldovan Republic, but only the creation of conditions for the external management of the state.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, reinforcing a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that pro Western political parties or activists are under external control exercised by George Soros or the US, following a foreign agenda from the external ”curators”.

The Soros Foundation has been working in Moldova since 1992, financing and promoting programs and activities in areas such as media, justice and human rights, good governance, and public health with the aim to support the development of an open society. Since then, dozens of Moldovan specialists have been employed by the foundation or collaborated in its programs. Many of them have continued their careers in various organizations, including in government structures. From the current government two ministries from 12 Government members have previously worked in Soros Foundation programs.

US brought Poroshenko to power via armed coup

In 2014, the US brought Ukrainian President Poroshenko to power by way of an armed coup.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative painting the 2013-14 events in Ukraine as a Western-backed coup, and casting the country as a failing state incapable of making its own domestic or foreign-policy choices.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of numerous parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. See the full debunk here.

24 crew members of Ukrainian ships violated Russian maritime borders in the Kerch Strait

24 crew members of Ukrainian ships were arrested by the Russian Coast Guard in November 2018 for violating Russian maritime borders in the Kerch Strait.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the Kerch incident.

On the 25th of November 2018, border patrol boats belonging to Russia’s FSB security service seized two small Ukrainian armoured artillery vessels and a tug boat and their crews after shooting at them, wounding several Ukrainian servicemen and arresting 24 members.
