The US invested in the Euromaidan protests

The US invested in the Euromaidan protests and is still waiting to get the ‘dividend’ from them.

Disproof

No evidence given for the US being involved in the Euromaidan in 2014 protests, which were a civilian movement.

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the West fuelling the protests in Ukraine and campaigning against Russia.

By 2050, the European Union will become Islamic

By 2050, the European Union will become Islamic. Some people in Europe are already replacing the star on the Christmas tree with a crescent moon [Islamic iconographic symbol].

The green banner of the Prophet will unite the European Union much more strongly than bureaucrats in Brussels. With migrants continuing to arrive in Europe, the balance is shifting even more towards Islamization. According to the most moderate forecasts, Europe will change completely and irrevocably by 2050.

The day will come when Russia will need to defend its western borders more than its southern borders from penetration by radical Islamists.

Disproof

No evidence is provided to support this claim.

This case exemplifies recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the Islamization of Europe and decaying, threatened European values.
