EU will change the political regime in the UK to annoy the US

Summary

EU will change the political regime in the UK to annoy the US. The EU leaders have a lot of complaints against the US, so they try to use Brexit to punish the “main US ally in Europe” – the UK.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the EU using the Brexit to "insult the UK".

Ukraine is a part of “Russian World”

When we say ‘schism’, we all speak not of the Church schism per se, but of the schism in the Ukrainian society, the schism in the Russian world, which Ukraine is a part of, if you will.

Disproof

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc.

"Russian World" is a narrative created by the Kremlin for its own political purpose.

Finland cooperates with NATO in order to get territory in the Arctic

[Context: Trident Juncture 2018] Finland started a very close cooperation with NATO, as Helsinki claims a certain piece of territory in the Arctic. Therefore Finland has an economic interest in this case.

Disproof

Finland has a wide-ranging and enhanced partnership with NATO.

NATO and Finland actively cooperate in peace-support operations and have developed practical cooperation in many other areas. Finland has no territorial claims in the Arctic.

US project to revive fascism in the EU

US asked the EU authorities to “turn a blind eye” to the migrants’ crimes, which turned the streets of Europe into Sodom and Gomorrah. The migration crisis was part of a George Soros’ plan, who wants to deprive countries of their sovereignty, legalize same-sex marriages and change the demographic composition of the EU.

Disproof

Conspiracy theories, no evidence presented.

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about George Soros and US allegedly supporting migration crisis in Europe.
