Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

Finland practises juvenile terror: children are taken away from their parents on nonvalid grounds.


Reoccurring disinformation that has been debunked before. The Finnish Ministry for Social affairs and health care have been tackling this disinformation for years. If the health or development of a child are endangered by the child’s growth environment or the child himself or herself, supportive measures in open care must be taken without delay. If a child is in immediate danger or otherwise in need of urgent placement and substitute care, the child may be placed in care with urgency. If the supportive measures in open care are not suitable, possible or sufficient, the child must be taken into care. However, a child may be taken into care only if the substitute care is assessed to be in the best interests of the child. bit.ly/2uBZThZ, bit.ly/2ddFf4d,
