Disinfo: PESCO indicates Europe's lack of independence from the US

Summary

The Permanent Structured Cooperation on security and defence (PESCO) is nothing but a set-up enabling the US to supervise yet another major infrastructure project in Europe” and to withdraw cash from Europe. The project does not indicate Europe’s independence.

Disproof

Actually, the main aim of a Permanent Structured Cooperation on security and defence (PESCO), as outlined in the Treaty of the EU, Articles 42 (6) and 46, as well as Protocol 10 is EU Member States' closer cooperation in security and defence. Member States agreed to step up the European Union's work in this area and acknowledged that enhanced coordination, increased investment in defence and cooperation in developing defence capabilities are key requirements to achieve it. Through PESCO, Member States increase their effectiveness in addressing security challenges and advancing towards further integrating and strengthening defence cooperation within the EU framework. eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-Homepage/34226/permanent-structured-cooperation-pesco-factsheet_en,

Georgian kindergartens receive directives from UNICEF

The Georgian Education Minister Jejelava started bringing up male and female homosexuals in kindergartens. This is done under the mask of ”civilized”, ”tolerant”, ”Western experience” and the directives are received by UNICEF.

Disproof

No evidence given. UNICEF cannot decide over Georgia's school programme. Read more about what UNICEF workes with in Georgia.

The US adored the Nazi regime in Germany until 1939

Before 1939, the world community adored Hitler. America adored Hitler before the year of thirty-nine.

Disproof

No evidence given. Unlike the Soviet Russia, which in 1939 concluded with Nazi Germany the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, according to which Stalin and Hitler divided spheres of influence in Europe and attacked Poland, thereby starting WWII, the US did not enter into similar agreements with the Nazis.
