Europe and the US support the economy of Ukraine only for geopolitical interests and this support is very limited. All investments are only for the purpose of prolonging the Ukrainian conflict with Russia.
In Switzerland, it is possible to denounce a neighbour and receive 200 francs. The Swiss authorities offer to rat out your neighbour for a fee if he warms his house or flat too much. A photo of a poster with a public notice posted on the street is circulating on social media. "Swiss Civil Society" encourages denouncing neighbours if they are warmer than 19 degrees and promises money in return. The authorities have already reported that residents will be fined and imprisoned for up to three years if they keep their homes warmer than 19 degrees Celsius. It was clarified that imprisonment is foreseen for intentional violations, while a fine can be imposed in other cases.
The disinformation story is an example of inventing inauthentic sources. It refers to a fake social media poster, which promises to reward the Swiss for denouncing neighbours who heat their homes above 19 degrees.
As Simone Hug, communications specialist at the Department of Energy of Switzerland, told 20 Minuten, the Swiss government had nothing to do with this appeal and formally distanced itself from it. The Swiss federal government's logo and telephone number on the poster were said to have been misused. “There are NO such federal posters, nor do we call for people to be blackened,” says Hug. The federal government has already initiated investigations into this abuse, she added.
Beside that the logic in the claim "the EU is doomed to social disunity" is missing, Switzerland is not a member state of the EU.
