Disinfo: Europe justifies the Munich Agreement with Hitler

Summary

Until recently it was unthinkable that the fierce debates on the reasons and consequences of WWII will take place in Europe, which equates the USSR and Nazi Germany. And is doing it as if there was no “Munich” before the “Pact”. Where to find objective history? The truth is revealed in a Cambridge Scholars Publishing book called “History of International Relations and Russian Foreign Policy in the 20th Century”. It restores realism in international relations.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by stating that other European countries signed various international agreements with Germany throughout 1930s. The Munich Agreement (signed 30 September 1938), did indeed permit German annexation of the Sudetenland, in western Czechoslovakia. The policy of appeasement towards Adolf Hitler was heavily criticised in Europe and proved to be a disastrous move. World War II began in Europe on 1 September 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, knowing that the Soviet Union did not oppose them and would also invade Poland from the east. Great Britain and France responded by declaring war on Germany on 3 September. The "Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact" was accompanied by a secret supplementary protocol on the delimitation of areas of mutual interest in Eastern Europe. In particular, Hitler and Stalin agreed to divide Poland. The agreement also indicated that the Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, as well as Bessarabia and Finland, also belonged to the respective areas of interest of Germany and the USSR. Just a week after the signing of the Pact, the German attack on Poland started World War II. Two weeks later, Soviet troops entered Polish territory. It should, perhaps, be noted that the publisher 'Cambridge Scholars', is not related to Cambridge University Press or the University of Cambridge. This information is published on their website.

Jackie Chan gets coronavirus

The famous actor and film director Jackie Chan was quarantined with suspected coronavirus. The artist became infected with a coronavirus at a private party.

Disproof

The spread of coronavirus in the world is accompanied by a huge amount of fake news. Read similar cases that China coronavirus was predicted by Nostradamus and that Russia has found a way to treat coronavirus. Jackie Chan is denying reports that he has been placed under quarantine over coronavirus concerns. “Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ for everybody’s concern” Chan stated on his own website and social media accounts. “I’m very healthy and safe, and haven’t been quarantined. I’ve received many messages from friends asking if I’m ok. Your love and concern is so heartwarming.”

Coronavirus is found in countries which want to cooperate with Russia

All the “fairy tales” that the Chinese are eating “everything that moves”, and that is why it all started in China now seems to be a lie. Let’s pay attention. France has suddenly begun talking about the need to liquidate NATO, and suggests forming a defence alliance with Russia. A couple of weeks later, the coronavirus was discovered in France. Italy has officially called on the EU to drop sanctions against Russia. And again, after a couple of weeks, they discover this virus also in Italy.

Disproof

Conspiracy theories about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus. The coronavirus (2019-nCoV) comes from a family of viruses that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading with new cases being reported in the Asia-Pacific region as well as Europe, North America and the Middle East, causing more than 3584 deaths by 08 March 2020. As of 8th March 2020, coronavirus was confirmed in over 100 countries in all continents (except Antarctica). Read similar cases claiming that Coronavirus an Anglo-Saxon biological warning: originates in US labs; targets opponents of the US, Coronavirus was created on purpose, probably by the same British lab which poisoned the Skripals.

NATO spreads the coronavirus in the EU

The coronavirus represents a deliberately planned and targeted attack in the form of bio terrorism, whereby NATO aims to spread the pandemic throughout the EU in order to fend off Russia. Europe finds itself at the receiving end of the US’s utilisation of NATO for defeating Moscow as its arch enemy.

Disproof

Recurring narrative of a Western-led plot to spread the Coronavirus. The article quotes a little known expert from Russia’s Baltic fleet with the aim of fueling a conspiracy by drawing an unfounded link between the conduct of NATO’s DEFENDER Europe-20 military exercise with an ulterior motive to spread a Coronavirus pandemic in Europe as the fastest way of being able to neutralise Russian forces. There is no evidence that suggests that the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is used as a weapon against other states. It comes from a family of viruses that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading with new cases being reported in the Asia-Pacific region as well as Europe, North America and the Middle East, causing more than 3584 deaths by 08 March 2020. As of 8th March 2020, coronavirus was confirmed in over 100 countries in all continents (except Antarctica). The identity of the animal source of the coronavirus, named nCoV-2019, has been one of the key questions for the researchers. Coronaviruses are known to circulate in mammals and birds, and scientists have already suggested that nCoV-2019 originally came from bats. One of the previous coronaviruses that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, spread from bats to civet cats to humans. The South China Agricultural University in Guangzhou says that two of its researchers have identified the pangolin as the potential source of nCoV-2019. This was announced to reporters at a press conference on 7 February 2020.
