Europe is deliberately destroying Ukraine, just as they destroyed the Baltics

Summary

Europe wants to replace Ukraine’s population with migrants from Africa and the Middle East. All young and fertile Ukrainians will move to Europe and lose their identity. Europe is deliberately destroying Ukraine, turning the country into a deserted ruin, just as they already did with the Baltics.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence.

In 2004 - 2013 the GDP per capita in the Baltic countries increased by an average 46% (p. 191).

In 2017, according to World Bank data, GDP per capita (PPP) in each of the Baltic countries is lower than on average in the EU, but higher than in the Russian Federation. See more here.

Ukraine is a priority partner for the European Union, also within the EU's Eastern Partnership. In addition to political support, the EU has pledged a €13.8 billion support package for the next few years to support the reform process. In addition, the EU is reinforcing its position as Ukraine's number one trading partner. Exports from Ukraine to the EU increased by 27% and Ukrainian imports from the EU by about 22% while overall trade increased by 24% in 2017. EU imports from Ukraine continue to increase and estimates predict a 5% increase in 2018.

Washington is preparing a Venezuelan scenario for Hungary

The Coup d’Etat-Scenario we are witnessing in Venezuela has the characteristics of the way the US and its allies interfere in other countries. One can not exclude a similar course of action in order to forge a regime change in Hungary.

Disproof

No evidence given for this conspiracy theory, broadcast by Russian State media. Hungary stands, like all EU member states, behind the sanctions against Russia introduced after the illegal annexation of Crimea, and the sanctions set up after the shooting down of the Malaysian passenger plane MH17 and the Skripal Case. The sanctions regimes have been set up in open, transparent processes, where Hungary, like all EU member states, have a say.

Consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about sanctions imposed on Russia.

RT is classified as “not credible” by CIA-designed web feature

Browser extension Newsguard, designed by people like the former chief of the CIA, marks in green good news web sites and in red the doubtful ones. RT.com and Sputnik are branded “Not Credible”.

Disproof

On the advisory board of Newsguard, there is, indeed, one former director of the CIA. The team is composed of dozens of media professionals and media managers of different outlets.

Other organisations have also found RT not living up to standards. The British media regulator, Ofcom, has published their findings on the shortcomings of the credibility of the RT.

Nothing is found in the abusive “Russia probe” investigation in the US

For 1,5 years Robert Mueller has been investigating the supposed collusion between Trump and the Russians. Nothing has been found so far. So, they arrest people, they try to make them speak; then they set them free and continue trying to make them speak.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. Read more here.

By January 25, 2019, during the investigation of 'the 2016 US-election interference by Russia and related matters' (also known as special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe) eight people have pleaded guilty or been convicted.
