Israel will not be able to host Eurovision 2019

Summary

Modern Europe’s anti-Semitic rhetoric is shocking. Many artists, whose statements sound more like ordinary Nazism, signed an appeal to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), claiming that it’s unacceptable to organize Eurovision song contest in Israel.

Disproof

There is no official statement that Israel will not be able to host Eurovision 2019. A number of artists from Europe and beyond voiced support for the appeal from Palestinian artists to boycott the contest next year. Their letter said that "until Palestinians can enjoy freedom, justice and equal rights, there should be no business-as-usual with the state that is denying them their basic rights." Such a political viewpoint cannot be equated to anti-Semitism or Nazism. Typical pro-Kremlin narrative seeking to find "evidence" of such extremism in Europe, see e.g. euvsdisinfo.eu/nazi-east-nazi-west-nazi-over-the-cuckoos-nest/,

The main destabilizing factor in Ukraine is the US

The main destabilizing factor in Ukraine is the activity of the United States of America. It was they who destabilized Ukraine in 2014.

Disproof

The main destabilising factor in Ukraine is the country that illegally invaded Ukraine - i.e. Russia.

The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT. The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and continues to condemn this violation of international law, and that Russia’s illegal actions remain a direct challenge to international security, with grave implications for the international legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all States.

The Skripals “never came home”

There were plenty of baseless allegations against Moscow. According to the information voiced by Theresa May, the suspects reached the home of Skripals at approximately noon on March 4, whereas earlier in all police reports it was stated that the Skripals left their house that day early in the morning and never returned. So how come they touched the allegedly poisoned door handle of their house,” said Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya.

Disproof

British police have never said the Skripals went out for the whole day, and there’s good evidence to suggest they did in fact return home in the afternoon. Within a fortnight of the incident, CCTV footage emerged showing Sergei’s maroon BMW very close to his home.

UK doesn’t have any evidence of what happened in Salisbury, it wants to start an anti-Russian hysteria

“London needs this story for one purpose only – to start a disgusting anti-Russian hysteria and to get other countries involved in it. The number of inconsistencies and unanswered questions concerning the new British “evidence” is through the roof,” said the Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya at the Security Council.

“The British authorities still don’t have any evidence on or convincing versions of what happened”, he added.
