Germany has a habit of building concentration camps in Poland

Summary

Refugees do not want to live in Poland, but Germany, which has a habit of building concentration camps in Poland, wants to force immigrants to live there.

Germany, which has a vast experience in building concentration camps, thought that it would digest all the refugees, but miscalculated

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about refugees and migration. Pro-Kremlin disinformation has repeatedly referred to concentration camps when talking about migration in Europe. See more: euvsdisinfo.eu/report/brussels-summit-discusses-creation-of-concentration-camps-for-migrants/,

For background on the centres for migrants see: www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/07/03/report-by-president-donald-tusk-to-the-european-parliament-on-june-european-council-meetings/, and www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44652846,

The European Council called in June on the Council and the Commission to swiftly explore the concept of regional disembarkation platforms, in close cooperation with relevant third countries as well as UNHCR and IOM. Such platforms should operate distinguishing individual situations, in full respect of international law and without creating a pull factor.

The Council concluded that on EU territory, those who are saved, according to international law, should be taken charge of, on the basis of a shared effort, through the transfer in controlled centres set up in Member States, only on a voluntary basis, where rapid and secure processing would allow, with full EU support, to distinguish between irregular migrants, who will be returned, and those in need of international protection, for whom the principle of solidarity would apply. All the measures in the context of these controlled centres, including relocation and resettlement, will be on a voluntary basis, without prejudice to the Dublin reform. www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/06/29/20180628-euco-conclusions-final/,

Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference

The US has organised a junta in Ukraine. [—] Maidan was a US-organised coup and Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference in its internal policies. Ukraine is not a sovereign country any more.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine's statehood and Ukrainian nation. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B0%5D=77158&date=&offset=10 Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc.

There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT. The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and continues to condemn this violation of international law, and that Russia’s illegal actions remain a direct challenge to international security, with grave implications for the international legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all States.

Former Obama advisor admits that the US helped the onset of terrorism in Syria

In an interview for The Intercept, Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications for U.S. President Barack Obama, basically admitted that the US contributed to strengthening terrorists in Syria.

 

Disproof

Recurring narrative that the US aids terrorists in Syria euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77105&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77187&date=,

The title of the article in question is manipulative. In reality, Ben Rhodes does not admit that the US helped the onset of terrorism in Syria - he negates the suggestive question of the journalist and comments on the absurdity of supporting part of the opposition while considering the other part of the opposition to be terrorists, saying that "there was a slight absurdity in the fact that we were debating options to provide military support to the opposition at the same time that we were deciding to designate al-Nusra, a big chunk of that opposition, as a terrorist organization. So there was kind of a schizophrenia that’s inherent in a lot of U.S. foreign policy that came to a head in Syria".

Pentagon admits that US will be unable to protect Poland from a Russian invasion

American soldiers will be unable to stop the Russian army in case of an invasion into the Baltic states and Poland.

Disproof

The Czech-language version of Russian website Sputnik cites an article published by The Washington Post, misinterpreting its content to suit its own purposes. While the original article talks about the long time it would take the US Army to arrive at its destination  in the event of an invasion into the Baltics and Poland by Russia, the headline chosen by Sputnik only mentions Poland and the US's allegedly proclaimed inability to protect it.
