Disinfo: Europe and NATO try to force Georgians to become LGBT

Summary

Europe and NATO try to force Georgians to become LGBT and turn children immoral, so that later they would arrange Maidan and colour revolutions in Russia. The European Court ruled that the law on gay-propaganda passed by the Russian parliament discriminates children, as information on LGBT is not provided to them at early age. After this decision, it will be easy to pressure Georgia to do what the European Court wants.

Disproof

No evidence given. In June 2017, the European Court of Human Rights found that legislation in Russia banning the promotion of homosexuality breaches freedom of expression and is discriminatory. bit.ly/2sdnBA8, The Court did not find that children would have been discriminated because of lack of information on LGBT at early age. Instead it found that the authorities had reinforced stigma and prejudice and encouraged homophobia, which was incompatible with the values – of equality, pluralism and tolerance – of a democratic society. Russia, as well as Georgia, as member states of the Council of Europe, are party to the European Convention on Human Rights.

Ukrainians from government-controlled Donbas territories are traveling to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic for free medical treatment, since it is difficult to obtain medical care in Ukraine, particularly free care, which is readily available in separatist controlled territories.

Disproof

The myth of free medical care in the self-proclaimed republics has been debunked more than once bit.ly/2v2ehAl, . The claims about the lack of medical care in Ukraine have also been refuted, for example the funding for cancer care increased from 397 million hryvnia in 2016 to 445 million in 2017. bit.ly/2u3PBdd,

Visa-free travel for Ukranians is useless since Ukrainians are anyway denied entry to Bulgaria.

Disproof

Disinformation about the new visa-free regime for Ukraine has been recurring since it came into effect. Bulgaria is a member country of the EU and Ukrainian citizens are able to travel there without visa for up to 90 days. The incident referred to had nothing to do with the new visa-free travel rules or with Bulgarian border guards, but rather, with the incompetence of one tour operator, who later published an apology on its Facebook page saying they had made a mistake. bit.ly/2tZ8Y7D,
