Summary of Disinformation

NATO and EU supports neo-Nazi tendencies in Europe, the latest example being the neo-Nazi march in Latvian Riga where people marched on 16 March to commemorate the Latvian legionnaires that fought under the Waffen SS division.

Disproof

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia has informed that: "the 16 March is not an official remembrance day, and people, on their own private initiative, pay their respects to the fallen soldiers. Senior officials and members of the government do not participate in those commemorative gatherings in the centre of Latvia’s capital city." http://bit.ly/2nZOyEX
