Disinfo: EU is considering to ban kebab and Greece is now facing a gastronomic genocide

Summary

The European Parliament could ban gyros and kebab in Greece which is a major scandal. Increasingly poor Greeks are waiting on the voting on this topic in the EP with fear. On the other hand, Serbia should consider whether it wants to join this marriage with 27 nations because of love or benefit. The marriage would be as if a victim marries his or her rapist. The oriental influences in the Serbian cuisine originate from Greece which is now threatened by a gastronomic genocide.

Disproof

The EU is not banning ‘kebab’. The disinformation was spread as the European Parliament’s Health Committee raised concerns about the impacts of phosphates that are used as food additives. www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/press-room/20171128IPR89003/meps-move-to-block-phosphate-use-in-kebabs,

According to the EU executive spokesperson, the European Commission proposed the extension of the possibility to use the food additive called ‘phosphate’ which is necessary for certain spit meat preparations, such as the types mentioned above. www.neweurope.eu/article/eu-commission-eu-not-banning-kebab/,

The word genocide is frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_language%5B%5D=rus&date=, but it seldom corresponds to the actual definition of a genocide http://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.html

The ban imposed by the IOC on Russia's participation in the Winter Olympics 2018 is a war against Russia

The ban imposed by the IOC on Russia’s participation in the Winter Olympics 2018 is a war against Russia on all fronts.

Disproof

No evidence given. It was the systematic state sponsored doping program in Russia that made the IOC decide this www.olympic.org/news/ioc-suspends-russian-noc-and-creates-a-path-for-clean-individual-athletes-to-compete-in-pyeongchang-2018-under-the-olympic-flag, . Russian athletes not convicted of doping will be allowed to compete under Olympic flag. According to the rules of the IOC, any attempt to blockade or blackmail the Olympics means the exclusion from participation in the Games for up to 8 years, so using this "opportunity" would lead to consequences.

The aim of IOC is to show that Russia is not a great power

Russia are told by the International Olympic Committee and others; guys, did you think that you are a great power? And you were put in your place.

Disproof

The aim of the IOC is to protect the integrity of the Olympic games, which has been undermined by Russian cheating.

The Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture visited Chechnya and found no evidence of extrajudicial executions

The delegation of the Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture visited Chechnya and found no evidence that extrajudicial executions were committed on the territory of the republic, as it had been reported by the media before.

Disproof

The Council of Europe has said precisely the opposite: a delegation of the Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) rejected the claims and reported: "At the end of the visit, and in accordance with usual practice, the delegation discussed the main findings of the visit during a confidential meeting with senior officials of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. The Russian authorities had authorised a representative of [Human Rights Commissioner of the Russian Federation] Ms Moskalkova’s Office to attend that meeting. After the visit, reports have appeared in the Russian media quoting Ms Moskalkova as saying that the CPT’s delegation found no confirmation of extrajudicial executions/punishments or torture. These reports are misleading and should not be considered as reflecting the CPT’s findings during this visit."www.coe.int/en/web/cpt/-/council-of-europe-anti-torture-committee-visits-the-chechen-republic-of-the-russian-federation, Newspaper Novaya Gazeta published in July 2017 an investigation according to which tens of people had been executed extrajudicially in January 2017 in Chechnya. www.novayagazeta.ru/articles/2017/07/09/73065-eto-byla-kazn-v-noch-na-26-yanvarya-v-groznom-rasstrelyany-desyatki-lyudey,
