Disinfo: EU legislature forces Georgian authorities to kidnap children from their parents

Summary

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!

Disproof

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.

Terrorist Sentsov is responsible for the death of Crimeans

Sentsov is a neo-Nazi terrorist and took part in the battle in front of the Crimean Supreme Court on February 26, 2014. It was Sentsov who threw a nerve gas grenade into the crowd of Crimeans defending the Supreme Council, the clash at the Council led to two deaths. Sentsov and his activists set the offices of civil society organisations – such as the “Crimean Russian Community” – ablaze as well as United Russia’s local party office.

Disproof

Oleg Sentsov was convicted in a Russian military court for terrorist offences. However, according to Amnesty International and PEN International, the trial itself was littered with irregularities: Sentsov said he was tortured, the main witness of the prosecution said his evidence had been extorted under torture and he said that no terrorist acts were committed. Moreover, Sentsov was not committed for offences committed on February 26, 2014. www.theguardian.com/world/2015/aug/25/russian-court-jails-ukrainian-filmmaker-oleg-sentsov-for-20-years-over-terror-offences, It can be confirmed that there were clashes between pro-Russian and pro-Ukrainian protesters on February 26, 2014, but there is no proof that Sentsov threw a nerve gas grenade into the crowd. Moreover, media reports suggest there was one death during the protect, and the man presumably died of a heart attack. edition.cnn.com/2014/02/26/world/europe/ukraine-politics/index.html, European Parliament has demanded that the Russian authorities immediately and unconditionally release Sentsov and more than 70 Ukrainian citizens illegally detained in Russia and on the Crimean peninsula. The EU has stated that it expects international human rights standards on the peninsula to be upheld and all illegally detained Ukrainian citizens in Russia and on the Crimean peninsula to be released without delay. eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/49296/statement-spokesperson-continuous-detention-ukrainian-film-director-oleg-sentsov_en,

An Islamic revolution has started in Sweden!

The Swedish city of Falkenberg is ruled by immigrants and there are numerous individuals sympathising with ISIS in Trollhättan. An Islamic revolution has started in Sweden.

Disproof

No evidence of an Islamic revolution in Sweden. The city of Falkenberg is actually governed by a center-right coalition.

EU is imposing paedophilia on Serbia

Paedophilia is a natural sexual orientation, just like heterosexuality, and we should treat paedophiles with the same respect as other people. This scandalous statement was made during the TEDx Talk conference at the German University of Wuerzburg. Fighters against paedophilia in Serbia warn that this is just the beginning of the campaign since “modern” Europe is planning to introduce such perverted attitudes in the Balkans.

Disproof

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/, For background see: euvsdisinfo.eu/old-disinformation-finds-fresh-ground-in-serbia-targets-the-eu/,
