Disinfo: Netherlands MH17 hysteria demonstrates Dutch government complicity in the tragedy

Summary

The Dutch government, as a agent of the Euro-Atlantic establishment, has lost all links to the reality and is not even pretending that it cares about the human rights and the objective investigation; Representatives of the European elite involved in covering up the truth behind the MH17 crash are panicking because the mainstream ‘Russia is guilty’ narrative has collapsed.

Dutch government tried to pay a bribe to Tsemakh for his loyality and participation in the MH17 farce by proposing him to move to the Netherlands.

Under international law (as well as laws of a majority of the states), the concealment of facts related to the crime is a signal of complicity in the crime. The Dutch government, which is allegedly a neutral side in the MH17 case, is de-facto impeding the objective investigation of the tragedy.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Joint International Investigation and the downing of the flight MH17. 

The disinformation message appeared after the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service claimed that Russia willingly allowed Mr Tsemakh, a suspect in the MH17 case, to leave the Russian Federation and refused to execute the Dutch request for extradition. Read more here. Ukraine has also issued the warrant for Volodymyr Tsemakh.

A special team, known as the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), was established to conduct the criminal investigation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine.  On the basis of the investigation conducted by the JIT  the Dutch Public Persecution service will persecute 4 individuals for causing the crash of the MH17 and murdering of 289 persons on board.

The JIT has launched an appeal for witnesses who might have more information about the persons involved in the downing of the MH17. Every witness who comes forward maybe offered a witness safety and protection program. If necessary the program can protect witness identities and may include the use of assumed identities and may include re-location and in some cases permanent re-settling in another country.

Greta Thunberg declared war against white men

The “green madness” spanning the western world is already leading to serious economic repercussions.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg are against the so-called “patriarchal system of oppression” and urge to refrain from having children. They also declare that it is the locals’ racism that makes migrants to commit crimes.

If Ocasio-Cortez and Thunberg succeed in their environmental plans, the world will never be the same, and Russia and China are likely to remain the last islands of common sense. The flow of tourists from the European Union will go to Russia, because only in Russia (and in China, but we are closer) you can safely eat natural (rather than soy) meat and ride a gasoline car without being tormented by the conscience and the “ecological moral police” – the social network activists.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a conspiracy about the West allegedly exploiting the environmental agenda and climate change topic.

See earlier disinformation cases claiming that Greta Thunberg is a political tool, key targets for “green blows” will be Russia and China, that the climate mafia is exploiting Greta Thunberg to lower living standards, and that Greta Thunberg is a prophet of a new totalitarian wave equalling to radical Islam.

The Baltics have lost industry, agriculture, and population as a result of EU membership

As a result of their membership in the EU, the Baltic States have lost industry and agriculture and a third of their populations. During Soviet times, the Baltic republics where certain showcases; their cultural levels were improved thanks to other Soviet peoples. The Baltic States’ establishments thought this would continue to be the case. Instead, they have again returned to the boondocks, the place that they always had in Europe.

Disproof

This case is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about socio-economic degradation in the Baltic States as opposed to their alleged well-being under the USSR. In fact, the economic situation of all three Baltic States is strong and demonstrates some of the leading economic growth indicators in the EU. The dynamics over the past years are available here.

See similar disinformation cases about the Baltic States alleging that Latvia is a US vassal state, that Lithuania is a "typical dying young democracy", that decaying Latvia and Lithuania envy Belarus its strategic relations with Russia, and that the Baltic States are dying because they chose not to be with Russia.

Russia’s prospective Olympic ban is a symptom of Western Russophobia

The potential olympic ban on Russian athletes is a symptom of the wider global tendency to blame Moscow for nearly everything.

Russia gets accused of something in every aspect of international life, be it conflicts, economics, energy or gas pipelines. Everywhere Russia is said to be in violation of something or doing something that one or several Western nations find detrimental to their interest.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that any criticism of Russia voiced by any non-Russian entity, be it an NGO, a government, or a media outlet, is a symptom of pathological Russophobia afflicting all such institutions.

In the course of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADA) investigation into the alleged state-sponsored doping operation, Russia has received the same treatment as any other country probed for doping violations. See here and here for comprehensive debunking by Polygraph.info.
