Germany Has Limited Sovereignty

Summary

Germany’s sovereignty is limited, therefore one cannot expect full participation of its foreign affairs’ minister in international talks. Foreign and military policy of Germany is conducted under US supervision.

By urging Russia to destroy a missile system foreign affairs minister of Germany is playing a game: showing America that he is following the US political and informational line. In fact he does not care what will happen with the missiles, it is a long-term question. He understands that it is not necessary to go with the US in all directions – Nord Stream II is more important to Germany.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about German-American relations.

For other examples see: Germany is the executor of US hegemony over Europe; The USA is controlling Europe through occupied Germany; Germany will have to choose between defending Europe's interest and catering to Washington.

The disinformation message was a reaction to German Foreign Minister urging Russia to save the IMF treaty by destroying a missile system.

Ahead of the Presidential Elections Poroshenko’s Junta in Ukraine Must Report to their US Masters

Ahead of the presidential elections Poroshenko’s junta in Ukraine must report on what they achieved to their masters – the US. With destroyed economy and corruption they have nothing to present. The only explanation they have for the failure is the war with the Russians. Currently, the Americans do not know whom to bet for in the elections, as there are only bandits and criminals among the candidates. Severing ties with Russia makes Poroshenko look good before his masters in the USA.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the election in Ukraine.

The disinformation messages were a reaction to the announcement of the Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine, that the country is prepared to terminate additional 50 treaties with Russia.

Ukrainians Occupy the Worst Jobs in Poland and are Enslaved

Ukrainians occupy the worst jobs in Poland and are enslaved.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukrainian citizens in Poland, whose aim is to exaggerate Polish-Ukrainian tensions and portray Ukraine as a country without any perspectives, forcing people to work in conditions similar to slavery in other countries.

According to the National Bank of Poland, in 2017, there were about 900.000 citizens of Ukraine living and working in Poland, who transferred approximately 8,6 billion PLN (2 billion EUR) to Ukraine.

Theresa May is Using the Case of Skripal Poisoning to Deal with her Political Enemies

Theresa May is trying to deal with her political enemies by using EU and bringing up the case of Skripal poisoning.

Theresa May is behind the EU decision to impose sanctions to GRU officials related to Skripal poisoning. It is her way of reminding British politicians that they are all part of the conspiracy around the Skripal case. This way she is reminding Boris Johnson that he publicly lied in front of cameras about having proof that Russia is behind the Skripal poisoning. Her message is “do not touch me, because if Corbyn comes to power we will all be in trouble, I will take down everyone of you with me”.

Disproof

Claims that there is UK government conspiracy behind the Skripal case is often-used method of applying a pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Salisbury poisoning. Also see here.

British Police has presented a solid chain of evidence on the Skripal Case, with pictures, connecting the suspects to the locations in the case. Parts of the material have been released to the public.
