Photo shows: Norwegians do not want NATO exercises

Summary

Photo shows: Norwegians do not want NATO exercises.

Disproof

The article is manipulative, as the NATO's Trident Juncture exercise is being carried out in Norway, based on a request by the Norwegian Government. Official documents prove that the placement of the American Naval Forces on the territory of Norway is legitimate. To illustrate the protest organized by the Norwegian Communist Party in 2018, Geworld.ge uses photos from 2016 that show a manifestation in Poland.

NATO generals scared to death by Crimean bridge

The NATO generals are scared to death by the Crimean (Kerch) bridge.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about NATO.

In fact, in a resolution at the 64th session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, the Committee on the Civil Dimension of Security condemned Russia's construction of the Kerch Bridge, announced Iryna Friz, Head of the Permanent Parliamentary Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

Macron urged EU countries to abandon their sovereignty

French President Emmanuel Macron urged EU countries to abandon their sovereignty.

Disproof

In fact, the French president did not urge the EU countries to abandon their sovereignty. In his speech to the Bundestag he said: "Europe, and within it the Franco-German couple, have the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace (...) That's why Europe must be stronger... and win more sovereignty".

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about EU' sovereignty.

US controlling the intelligence services of Germany and other countries

The US is controlling the intelligence services of Germany and other countries. It uses Austrian spy scandal to weaken the relations between Russia and EU. Next US’ targets would be Hungary and Italy.

British security services are behind the Russian-Austrian spy row. It is the continuation of the Skripal case.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about alleged US conspiracy and Skripal's poisoning.

A senior Austrian military officer is believed to have spied for Moscow for decades, Vienna said on Friday. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced on Friday that the suspected espionage case had been uncovered and handed over to prosecutors.
