Disinfo: Footage shows Tskhinvali bombed by Georgians

Summary

On August 8, Georgia attacked South Ossetia. Director of a bakery in Tskhinvali says in the video that Georgian soldiers were entering houses in Tskhinvali and leaving hand grenades in basements. Afterwards, the video shows footage with Sophio Muradov.

Disproof

The footage is falsified: whereas NTV talks about the Georgian attacks in Tskhinvali, the footage in reality shows Gori that had been bombed by Russian Air Forces. Sophio Muradov was wounded during the bombings of residential buildings in Gori by the Russian Air Forces on August 9, 2008.

Necrophilia and bestiality are accepted norms in Sweden, Germany and Denmark

“One letter added to LGBT and crucified Orthodoxy.” The article claims that necrophilia and bestiality are accepted norms in Sweden, Germany and Denmark. They are not criminalized and may even be legalized soon. The author equals pedophilia and bestiality with homosexuality.

Disproof

Geworld’s article on the legal status of necrophilia and bestiality in Germany, Sweden and Denmark is false. In reality, necrophilia and bestiality are punishable in these countries. The source of Geworld’s fake news is the Russian federal news agency ФАН, which, in turn, is one of the projects of a notorious Russian troll factory.
