Disinfo: Czech NGO People in Need is a Soros-funded intelligence organisation

Summary

People in Need (the Czech humanitarian NGO) is in fact an intelligence organisation serving in favour of NED and George Soros’ OSF, which are providing its financing. That is why the People in Need were expelled from DPR by local separatists.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming  George Soros aims to destabilise countries and topple regimes in post-communist  Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. See here for similar cases.

Visa-liberalisation with Ukraine will flood Europe with Ukrainian Nazis

Visa-liberalisation with Ukraine will lead to the influx of Ukrainian neonazis into Europe. Also, there is a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.

Disproof

The visa liberalisation will grant Ukrainians only short-term visits to Europe (90 days every half a year), and is not connected to the issue of labour liberalisation for Ukrainians. The visa liberalisation doesn't mean abolition of border security checks. Furthermore, all Ukrainians seeking to use the visa-free regime will have to posses a biometric passport.

A recurring narrative about Nazis in Ukraine; similar case here.

Ukraine proposes to accept middle-Eastern migrants in exchange for visa-free travel into the EU

Ukraine proposes to accept middle-Eastern migrants in exchange for visa-free travel into the EU.

Disproof

The headline does not correspond with the content of the article. The visa liberalisation is not linked to migration policies but is based on benchmarks fulfilled by Ukraine. The proposal referred to was voiced by a civil servant on his personal Facebook page. It is not Ukrainian official policy.
