The Macedonians said “no” to NATO and the EU

On the referendum regarding the new name of their country, the Macedonians said “no” to NATO and the EU.

Disproof

The referendum on changing the name of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) as part of a deal that would pave the way for EU and NATO membership had a low turnout of 37 per cent - but among those who voted it won an overwhelming support. Results showed 91.3 percent of voters approving the deal.

With the support of more than 600,000 citizens in favour of a new country's name, FYROM’s prime minister has now referred the issue to the parliament.

Norwegian delegation says Crimea is part of Russia and sanctions are “nonsense”

The head of Norwegian delegation that visited Crimea in September said that this peninsula is an inseparable part of the Russian Federation. In his opinion, the sanctions are a “nonsense” and Crimea doesn’t feel their impact.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about "official delegations" allegedly visiting Crimea.

This was not an official delegation. Norway does not recognize the Russian presidential election in Crimea. "Norway will continue to support the EU’s non-recognition policy", said the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This isn't an official delegation. According to local media, the Norwegian delegation includes a member of the Norwegian Physicians against Nuclear Weapons, an actress, Professor of Statistics at the Department of Economics of the University of Oslo, as well as farmers, entrepreneurs, and public figures.
