Swine fever prepares the ground for the influx of Danish and Dutch farmers to Romania

The African swine fever is just a pretext to abolish peasant farms in Romania and prepare the ground for Danish and Dutch farmers, according to Deutsche Welle. These farmers will move to Romania and Baltic states, bringing with them the environmental problems.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about swine fever. This messaging has been spread a few weeks ago by multiple versions of Sputnik, Ria Novosti, TV Zvezda, Regnum, and other pro-Kremlin sources.

The Deutsche Welle article does not link the swine fever with the intention of some Dutch and Danish farmers to come to Romania. It states that, according to an environmental activist, they might move their farms to Romania and Baltic states, due to some possible restrictions of using pesticides and claims regarding animal rights in their own countries.
