Disproof

Recurring disinformation related to the MH17 tragedy.

On top of that, the claims made by the alleged eyewitness entirely contradict the results in Bellingcat’s open source investigation referred to above. Read more on our website.

Disinfo: Arab refugees tried to kill two Czech boys

Just before Christmas, three Arab refugees attacked two Czechs. In front of a club in Brno, a fight broke out in the early morning, when the refugees verbally attacked a girl. Two Czechs wanted to protect this girl so they got involved. They were then attacked with a knife and seriously injured by the Arabs. The attackers clearly aimed at the arteries on their throats and wanted to kill the Czechs, they failed only because of the rapid and good reaction of the Czechs.

Disproof

The Czech police have issued a statement that they are clearly not refugees. All of the perpetrators have been living in the Czech Republic for several years and they speak Czech. All offenders were caught and will be tried under Czech law, like any other Czech citizen. www.policie.cz/clanek/hadka-mela-krvavou-dohru.aspx, , twitter.com/CTHH_MV/status/945990424803532802,

Disinfo: The US threatened Georgia with sanctions due to UN vote

The UN General Assembly vote on recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel led to that, as Georgian representation did not participate in the vote, the Americans have introduced a legal bill on imposing sanctions on Georgia, formulated by the congressmen of the US.

Disproof

In fact, a press-release published on Steve Russell’s official webpage on December 6 notes that the International Anti-Corruption Legal Bill is a response to the violation of contracts with the American companies and the US’ allies by the Government of Georgia russell.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-russell-introduces-international-anti-corruption-bill, .

Disinfo: Modern Europe has recognised Sodomy, incest and other immoralities as a norm

Modern Europe has recognised Sodomy, incest and other immoralities as a norm… the European Union by its satanic laws acquired a completely different meaning. It seems that the EU now resembles the Tower of Babel, therefore its laws and advices are completely unacceptable for Georgia.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the EU in Georgia. Incest is illegal in all European countries and there are no "satanic" laws imposed on Georgia by the EU.
