Summary of Disinformation

Police have already reported that eight children were “taken away” from families on the very first day of enactment of the law. After three months of raising in special camps, children will be adopted by other families. Dutch Ombudsman for Children, Aster Maria Jacobs said that the State is doing its utmost to help new generation avoid “a nightmare of intolerance.


The information spread by Geworld.ge is not true. The story was fabricated by a satirical online edition and then spread like genuine information in Russian sources. In addition, the photo attached to the article has actually been taken in Poland rather than in the Netherlands.
