In 2011 in Germany, 38 500 children were taken away from their families against their will and handed over to same sex families. // Over the last 20 years tens of thousands of families were deprived of their children by the German state. The children are then placed in juvenile justice institutions, something like concentration camps.


No evidence given. While homosexual couples can be foster families, there are no official statistics of the number of homosexual foster couples in Germany. They are estimated to 1% of foster families in big cities, says a researcher at the University of Siegen bit.ly/2ssxIlI, . In 2014, there were 41.000 registered same-sex couples in Germany, which make the numbers cited in the story quite unlikely: bit.ly/2fgMaFl, . The objective of removing children from their families is to ensure the well-being of the child. If parents protest the removal of their children, public authorities must return the child to the family or seek permission from a court: bit.ly/2sPbMUk, // There are no concentration camps in Germany.

The Western geopolitical interests are behind the recent London terror attacks. // The American secret services are the creators of the islamic fundamentalism. // The West does not want to fight terror.


Another attempt of pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets to misuse terror attacks, as described here: bit.ly/2oAtl67, // No evidence given. // The West does indeed fight terror, the US-led coalition has helped local partners push Daesh out of 62% of populated territory it once controlled in Iraq and 30% of the populated territory it once controlled in Syria: bit.ly/2s2klIH,

The accession of Montenegro to NATO is a plot of the West against Russia and a treacherous attempt to reduce significantly the real influence of Russians in this Balkan country.


No evidence given. It is, as always with NATO accessions, Montenegro itself that has applied to join NATO. The claim about NATO "expansion" misrepresents the process of NATO enlargement. NATO does not "expand" but considers the applications of candidate countries which want to join. See: bit.ly/269ONPz;, bit.ly/2e6J8oV;, bit.ly/2eFPg9s, .
