Disinfo: Moldovan President – the only President not invited to the EaP Summit

Summary

Igor Dodon became the only one of the six Presidents of the EaP member countries who had not been invited to the Brussels Summit. Moldova was represented at the forum by Prime Minister Pavel Filip. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko refused to go to Brussels and sent his minister of foreign affairs to the Eastern Partnership Summit. The other 4 delegations were led by the Presidents of the EaP countries concerned.

Disproof
The invitations to the Eastern Partnership Summit on 24 November in Brussels were sent to the Heads of State or Government of all six partner countries and of European Union Member States, signed by President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister of Estonia (holding the presidency of the Council of the EU over the second half of 2017) Jüri Ratas. The choice of addressee was based on the constitutional responsibilities in the countries concerned.  In Georgia and the Republic of Moldova, foreign policy largely pertains to the responsibilities of Prime Ministers, while in the other four partner countries it largely rests with the Presidents.

Bill Gates wants to depopulate the world

Bill Gates wants to depopulate the world.

Disproof

Repeating old disinformation debunked many times. In 2010, Bill Gates said:

"First, we’ve got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent, but there we see an increase of about 1.3."

The EU keeps silent about a colossal corruption scandal; and glyphosate causes deformations, autism, diabetes and cancer

The EU keeps silent about a colossal corruption scandal; and glyphosate causes deformations, autism, diabetes and cancer. Now whole of Europe will be poisoned for another five years.

Disproof

No evidence given for corruption or that the EU would keep silent about it.

The glyphosate has been used by farmers for more than 40 years, but its safety was cast into doubt when a World Health Organization agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), concluded in 2015 it probably causes cancer.

Sweden is almost in a war-state. The immigrants have taken over the lead of the country. The criminality is so high that police officers are afraid to serve

The dramatic wave of crime in Sweden is no longer limited to the main cities and spreads to rural communities as well. Police warn that foreign criminals see Sweden as the most attractive country. If you steal something, the probability of being caught is almost zero. Municipalities in Sweden suffer from the lack of free houses and apartments. This is because they have to give priority to the newly arrived asylum seekers and immigrants. The Swedish government wants to accommodate more than 100,000 immigrants by 2018.

Disproof

The Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs published on its official web-site facts about migration and crime in Sweden saying that: "In recent times, simplistic and occasionally completely inaccurate information about Sweden and Swedish migration policy has been disseminated. In general terms, violence has decreased in Sweden in the last 20 years. Research shows that there is no evidence to indicate that immigration leads to increased crime. Despite the fact that the number of immigrants in Sweden has increased since the 1990s, exposure to violent crimes has declined. In 2015, almost 163 000 people sought asylum in Sweden. The measures subsequently taken by the Government, including temporary ID checks and border controls, and the new temporary asylum legislation, have led to fewer people now seeking asylum in Sweden."
