The 35 for 35 prisoner swap between Ukraine and Russia once again revealed the two-faced stance of the so-called ‘Civilized World’ towards the MH17 tragedy in eastern Ukraine. Ahead of the prisoner swap, the Netherlands urged Ukraine to not hand over Vladimir Tsemakh to Russia. By this move, the Netherlands admitted that it is not a neutral side and is not interested in an objective investigation of the MH17 tragedy. The Dutch side had a lot of time to question the supposed witness. However, this was not enough and it wanted the person to remain in Ukraine, where Tsemakh would be subjected to constant physical and psychological pressure. The Dutch government, which is allegedly a neutral side in the MH17 case, is de facto impeding the objective investigation of the tragedy.
In 1941 attack of the Soviet Union Adolf Hitler was accompanied by multi-national forces, which can be named the European Union. The WWII was a point after which Europe stopped its existence as an independent actor on international stage. Americans not only made a fortune and solved all their domestic problems but also removed annoying competitors, i.e. the satellites of Hitler’s Germany, the so called European Union, and the UK. The UK became a younger US ally if not its client. The only empire in the world remained the US, the Soviet Union cannot be called empire.
This is a manipulative message consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the EU being a Nazi project, aggressive West, and the EU under US control. The European Union was set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War. As of 1950, the European Coal and Steel Community begins to unite European countries economically and politically in order to secure lasting peace. The six founding countries were Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Of these, four countries (all but Italy) were occupied by Nazi Germany by 1941. The Nazi ideology and the EU are based on opposite values and principles. Read more here. In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing the causes of peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. Read a past summary on how pro-Kremlin outlets use the accusation of Nazism to discredit the Western countries.. See earlier disinformation publications claiming that the the resent ruling elites of the West follow many concepts of Nazi Germany, that the EU was invented in the Third Reich and created by US agents, and that the West has aggressive intentions against Russia and its allies just as in 1938.
