Jewish prime minister and president of Ukraine are a cover up for country’s Nazism

Summary

Ukrainians are Nazis. Ukraine is adopting Nazi laws. A Jewish prime minister and a Jewish president are a cover up. Ukraine lives by the Nazi ideology and its national holidays are Nazi too.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, without evidence. One of the many recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Nazi Ukraine.

“Chernobyl” series intended to help Rosatom’s competitors

The reason why the HBO series “Chernobyl” is released now (as it’s not linked to a proper anniversary) is because Rosatom, created in 2007, became a dangerous competitor to the US, France and Japan in the area of nuclear energy.

Rosatom became a powerful player, especially after the sanctions introduces in 2014. And suddenly, the series tries to show how wild, stupid and careless Russians are, causing an unprecedented ecological catastrophe in Europe with sloppy built reactors.

Disproof

No evidence given.

This is a disinformation narrative about Chernobyl accident in 1986 and a pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about the West trying to limit the power of Russia.

France is a new look on tyranny

They say that the word ‘dictatorship’ for the French situation is too strong. Of course, if you compare it with the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, it will seem exaggerated. Still, there are ‘dead’ people too, because of capital, because of capitalism. Everything we eat, we ingest that causes cancer, all the people who kill one other, who are taking antibiotics and antidepressants, they are living dead. The destruction is almost invisible, but it is still there. Tyranny is invisible, but it is there.

Disproof

"Tyranny" or "dictatorship" are used to qualify political systems based on whether they respect or disrespect the civil and fundamental rights of the population (freedom of speech, of assembly etc.) and not the quality of food, antibiotics, or more broadly speaking, social rights. Politically free countries enjoy a high standard of social rights, including France.

This is a recurring disinformation narrative presenting Western countries as dictatorships. According to Freedom House, "the French political system features vibrant democratic processes and affords generally strong protections to civil liberties and political rights. However, due to a number of deadly terrorist attacks in recent years, successive governments have been willing to curtail constitutional protections and empower law enforcement. Anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment have also increased."
