Russo-Georgian war was between Georgia and South Ossetia

Russia recognized 11 years ago the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which had been part of the former Soviet Socialist Republic of Georgia and were seeking independence even before the disintegration of the Soviet Union. This occurred after a five-day war between Georgia and South Ossetia in August 2008, which killed 1,692 people and injured about 1,500 civilians in South Ossetia.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative trying to deny any role for Russia in the Russo-Georgian 2008 war, and presenting it instead as a conflict between South Ossetia and Georgia. South Ossetia and Abkhazia did not claim independence from Georgia but were occupied by Russia.

Currently, Russia occupies 20% of Georgia's territory, about 11 years after the Russo-Georgian War, and continues to breach its international obligations by consolidating its control in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The EU imposes gender neutrality on Georgian kindergartens

Based on EU recommendations, the Georgian government introduced gender neutral education in kindergartens. Under the new rules, children will not be distinguished by their gender. Children will decide for themselves whether they want to be a girl or a boy in the future. 

 

 

Disproof

No evidence given to support this claim. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the moral decay of Europe and propaganda of the morally corrupt West. The Georgian government’s 2017 professional standards on preschool education outline an inclusive approach to children, i.e. that they should be equally involved in all preschool activities despite their religion, ethnic background, gender, etc. Teachers should not discriminate against children based on their gender and should facilitate their full and equal inclusion in the preschool education programme. These standards stipulate nothing about allowing children to choose their own gender.

 

The Moldovan Government is a “puppet” of George Soros

The Moldova’s minister of justice Ms Stamate did not work in vain at the Soros Foundation. After the training she is set up and acting not in the public interest, but according to the clear instructions of foreign curators.

The main goal of the prime minister and her ministers is not the welfare of the Moldovan Republic, but only the creation of conditions for the external management of the state.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, reinforcing a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that pro Western political parties or activists are under external control exercised by George Soros or the US, following a foreign agenda from the external ”curators”.

The Soros Foundation has been working in Moldova since 1992, financing and promoting programs and activities in areas such as media, justice and human rights, good governance, and public health with the aim to support the development of an open society. Since then, dozens of Moldovan specialists have been employed by the foundation or collaborated in its programs. Many of them have continued their careers in various organizations, including in government structures. From the current government two ministries from 12 Government members have previously worked in Soros Foundation programs.
