Disinfo: Officials, connected to child molestation, are behind the Lanzarote convention

Summary

The government has started the process of ratifying the Lanzarote convention. In Armenia, they are going to take another step to distort the psychology of our children and adolescents, to confuse their minds, to deprive them of their innocence. As a result, to degenerate our society. Officials from the UN and other international organisations involved and exposed in child molestation, are behind the Lanzarote Convention.

Disproof

This disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western moral decay, as well as about imposing international conventions and laws on countries that destroy the moral foundations of traditional societies.

The Council of Europe Convention on Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse, also known as “the Lanzarote Convention”, requires criminalisation of all kinds of sexual offences against children. It sets out that states in Europe, and beyond, shall adopt specific legislation and take measures to prevent sexual violence, to protect child victims and to prosecute perpetrators.

The Convention is a major step forward in the prevention of sexual offences against children, the prosecution of perpetrators and the protection of child victims. The protection of children is at the heart of this convention. It focuses throughout on respect for children’s rights, ensuring their well-being, responding to their views, needs and concerns, and acting at all times in their best interests.

All 47 Council of Europe member states have signed and 45 states have ratified the Convention.

“Western curators” are interested in freezing the conflict in the Donbas

The Western curators of the Ukrainian project are clearly aimed at freezing the conflict in the Donbas. They cannot give the go-ahead to Zelenskyy for the implementation of the political part of the Minsk agreements – this would mean the end of the war soon. That is not why they started a coup in Kyiv, in which billions of dollars were invested.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine, claiming that Ukraine refuses to implement the Minsk agreements, undermining the statehood of Ukraine, and alleging that Ukraine is a state under foreign control.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was an organic reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.

Kyiv is imposing a siege on Donbas

We hope that the siege imposed by Kyiv on Donbas will be lifted as soon as possible.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to portray the Ukrainian government as the aggressor in the Donbas, when in fact Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity continue to be violated by acts of aggression by Russian armed forces.

The territories of Donbas are internationally recognised parts of Ukraine. The EU has stressed on several occasions that Ukraine’s borders must be respected. On 27 March 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 68/262 confirming Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Moreover, the international community, including the European Union, recognises and condemns clear violations of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014.

Russia has the right to reclaim the original Russian lands from Ukraine

There should be friendly states along the perimeter of the Russian Federation that recognise the special role of Russia in the post-Soviet space. States that pursue an anti-Russian policy must understand: Russia will not make any concessions.

Russia has all the rights to reclaim the original Russian lands of southeastern Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narrative questioning Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a well-defined nation-state that has preserved language, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods of time. It is a sovereign state whose borders are guaranteed by international agreements but were violated by Russia, which started a war in Ukraine in 2014.
