Moldovan parliament ready to give up on Transnistria for the EU and NATO

Summary

The Moldovan parliament is ready to give up on Transnistria in order to join the EU and NATO. Romania announced that it wants to make Moldova part of a Great Romania.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Moldova and Romania, specifically focused on questioning Moldova's integrity and undermining Moldova's EU aspirations.

There is no evidence that Romania is considering annexing Moldova.

Regarding Transnistria, the speaker of the Moldovan Parliament, Andrian Candu, said in an interview: "I am sure that once - although, unfortunately, not tomorrow and, apparently, not in the near future - but in the medium term, we will be able to agree on the return of Transnistria in the status of autonomy and the beginning of reintegration".

Muslim immigrants are provoking a new Holocaust

Muslim immigrants are currently provoking a new Holocaust. Islamists are demonstrating freely in European cities under the slogan “All Jews to the furnace!”. And the elimination of Jews is just the beginning of the Islamic conquest. 

Victims of migrant anti-Semitism are also old Holocaust survivors, who are being assaulted with knives and thrown from balconies by their Muslim neighbours.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Islamisation of Europe and migrants as threats to security.

The immigrants are not provoking a Holocaust.

Poroshenko is preparing new provocation in the Kerch Strait in order to destroy his political enemies

Ukraine is preparing another provocation in the Kerch Strait. Such a provocation would help initiate new sanctions against Russia and increase Poroshenko’s ratings ahead of the election. The provocation would help make an unpopular candidate popular. Poroshenko will impose martial law, postpone elections, and start looking for “Moscow agents” to destroy his political competitors.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence given.Ukrainian ships, sailing through Ukrainian waters cannot be viewed as a "provocation". The use of the Kerch strait and the Sea of Azov is regulated by a bilateral treaty between Russia and Ukraine, signed in 2003 and ratified by Russia in 2004. According to the document, the Sea of Azov is considered to be the “internal waters” of both Russia and Ukraine.

Consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the Azov Sea and presidential elections in Ukraine.

Europe brings totalitarian feminism to Belarus to destroy social values

Europe is breaking down under the weight of feminism. Feminist bullying of men who display any sexual interest in women has provoked a situation whereby even thinking about women in Europe is considered to degrade their honour and dignity. As a result, men in Europe have begun thinking about other men. This development is encouraged by laws on same-sex marriage in Europe.

This is what “innocent” gender equality leads to and what the Belarusian opposition wants to have in Belarus through the use of Swedish grants for the promotion of gender quality. Totalitarian feminism in some aspects is scarier than Ukrainian nationalism. Totalitarian feminism brings a collapse of the whole system of values including education, culture, religion, and politics.

Disproof

This disinformation message is related to the pro-Kremlin narrative on homosexuality propaganda in Europe and wrongly equates the concepts of feminism and gender equality with persecution for sexual abuse.

The EU advances gender equality between women and men as a fundamental human right.
