Portraying Nordic countries as especially immoral has been a recurring narrative in pro-Kremlin disinformation in Georgia and other orthodox countries. The story is in line with similar disinformation stories about moral decay in Europe. Thus, a particularly persistent claim is that sexual abuse of children is a norm in Norwegian families, and Russian nationwide TV has spent airtime explaining that embracing LGTBI rights paves the way for accepting paedohilia.euvsdisinfo.eu/no-denmark-is-not-legalising-sexual-abuse-of-animals/,

The Nazis have seized power in Ukraine

Cancer cannot be cured with aspirin. Cancer is treated only by surgical intervention. It is a cancer tumour called “Nazism”, which seized power in Ukraine, and which can be cut off by surgical means. In plain language: by military operation.

As witnessed by the democratic Early Parliament elections held on 26 October 2014, Ukraine is governed by a democratically elected Parliament. The OSCE characterized the elections as “an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments”, offering voters “real choice” and “a general respect for fundamental freedoms”. According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook increasing attempts to derail the process. There was no possibility also to carry out the elections in the Crimean Peninsula annexed by Russia the same year http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true   The far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that http://bit.ly/2dFFEdi  .

Douma doctors confirm that there was no chemical attack

The Russian Conflict Reconciliation Center claim that Syrian doctors said they did not deal with any cases of patients with signs of chemical poisoning. Also, the rescue driver said: “From 6th to 8th April, we did not have a patient suffering from chemical poisoning. Just ordinary war wounds. “

Disproof

In a joint Statement by Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America called for an end to such unacceptable Russian defamation of the OPCW. They also called the  so-called information meeting at OPCW headquarters that Russia held 'nothing more than a crude propaganda exercise'. nl.ambafrance.org/Syria-OPCW-Joint-Statement-26-april-2018,

There are several reports that Syrian doctors are forced under pressure and threat to say that the chemical attack has not occurred. Interview with one of the witnesses took place at a Syrian army facility used by Russian military advisers. www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/26/obscene-masquerade-russia-criticised-over-douma-chemical-attack-denial, , theintercept.com/2018/04/26/russia-brings-syrians-hague-make-underwhelming-case-chemical-attack-fake/, , www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/17/syria-crisis-medics-intimidated-over-douma-gas-attack,

Sergey and Julia Skripal were not poisoned by Novichok but by a different gas called BZ

Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned by an immobilizing substance called 3-Quincucnidnyl Benzilat (BZ), Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said. It was discovered by the Swiss laboratory Spiez, an internationally recognized institution. At the same time, the report says that this substance does not come from Russia but was used by the United States and the United Kingdom.

Disproof

No evidence given. The laboratory has answered that is has "no doubt that Porton Down has identified Novichock". https://twitter.com/SpiezLab/status/985243574123057152

The OPCW have confirmed the UK findings in the case. "The results of the analysis by the OPCW designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people." https://www.opcw.org/news/article/opcw-issues-report-on-technical-assistance-requested-by-the-united-kingdom/
