Disinfo: More than half of the young people in Sweden are criminals

Summary

According to statistics from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, more than half of the children in the tenth grade have performed crime. At the same time, almost half say that they have suffered from criminal acts.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation claim on crime in Europe, in this case Sweden, consistent with a narrative of a Western collapse. The survey from 2019, referred to in the claim, establishes that 52 percent of boys - have performed petty crimes, like shoplifting, trespassing.

It can also be mentioned that there is no tenth grade in Swedish schools.

The article is illustrated with a young man with a gun, giving the impression that Swedish armed youth roam the cities.

64 people have died in Sweden from side effects of vaccination

In Sweden around 64 deaths have occured due to side effects of vaccination against the coronavirus. This reports the daily Aftonbladet, referring to the kingdom’s medical products agency. /…/ The kingdom is mainly exploiting the vaccines from Pfizer.

Disproof

An unfounded claim, attempting to discredit the Pfizer vaccine, the outlet is deliberately misleading readers distorting the original Swedish text from the daily Aftonbladet:

Totally 64 cases of deaths have been reported to the Medical Product Agency. All of those have been elderly people with underlying medical conditions. The Agency concludes that there is no suspicions on connections between the deaths and the vaccine.

EU is always craving for conflicts and wars

If we look at the history of the European Union, the European Union did not reconcile with any party, and did not stop any war, but was creating new problems and crises one after the other, participated in violence against Iraq and participated in acts of violence against Libya. Hostilities and wars against Yugoslavia, this is funny and they should be ashamed to talk of any peaceful and democratic European society. This is far from democracy.

It is funny to talk about Russian violence … the European Union is the one who helped the Ukrainian putschists to overthrow the legally elected president (Viktor Yanukovych). It is the EU who deployed forces against Russia in Poland and the Baltic countries and is now trying to deploy new forces in Finland, it’s not Russia who is trying to spread and expand its influence.

The European Union is made up of very violent and aggressive countries who have a very extremist ideology. They look at Russia, China and several countries in the Middle East as enemies, and as countries where government systems must change, and this is quite clear.

What we often hear about Russia’s poisoning of Navalny and Skripal, the father and daughter, is not proven by evidence and represents just blunt accusations from EU countries.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative targeting the real value of the European Union, the reality of the Euromaidan protests, and the fact that there is substantial evidence of Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and Navalny.

Ever since the 1970s, the EU has adopted an independent role in global affairs, an identity based on peace and stability and the rule of law, in addition to pursuing a foreign policy premised on achieving peace for the world, while taking into consideration that supporting democracy worldwide is a priority for the European Union, and any allegations that protests around the world are incited and/or funded by Western states, such as colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the Arab Spring revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia, is recurring disinformation presented with no evidence.

Novichok-poisoning of Alexei Navalny was a made-up and staged production

Why should Putin have taken back his alleged order of assassination? Why is it suddenly enough for him to put his arch-rival away for 2.5 years? This defies all logic. Even more so the inexorable logic of an assassination warrant – unless there was no [assassination warrant]. It has been made-up. And the Novichok story was nothing but a staged production.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative portraying the poisoning of prominent Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny as a staged production. In this narrative, the poisoning is interconnected with the detention and imprisonment of Navalny in Russia.

The prominent Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny fell ill during a flight from Siberia to Moscow on the 20th of August. Initially hospitalised in Omsk, at the request of his family he was transferred to Charité hospital in Berlin.
