EU wants to ban information about the of country of origin on the food labels

EU wants to ban information about the of country of origin on food labels. This measure is applied in order to fight against the nationalistic tendencies in member states.


The original text from Italian website Afffaritalini  is about a quarrel between the European Commision and Italy, since Italy started to demand from producers to write on food labels where the product was produced and packed.

According to the European Commission, the current approach is that the country of origin or place of provenance labelling on food is voluntary, unless its absence could mislead consumers.

Former President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, urged Russia to help liberate his country from the US occupation

The former Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, made his contribution at the meeting of the Valdai Discussion club in Sochi. He asked Russia and Vladimir Putin, who was present personally, to help him to liberate Afghanistan from US occupation.


The alleged request for Russia to help Afghanistan to free itself from US occupation did not occur. Hamid Karzai, in his speech at the Valdai Discussion Club, did criticize US policy in Afghanistan and appealed to the United States to reflect on the current situation and to try to figure out how to solve their current ineffective Afghanistan policy.

Hamid Karzai (according to the Kremlin webpage): "The way forward is this: the United States of America in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage in a new contact with Afghan people. Two: the United States in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage with our neighbours and big powers of the world – that means our neighbours, that means China, that means Russia, that means India – on a clear, transparent platform of objectives. And with this in mind, the international community must support the Afghan mechanism for the resolution of the problems that we have."

Ukrainian secret service destroyed MH17 evidence

Secret documents show that just three days after the MH17 tragedy, the Ukrainian secret service conducted a special operation to wipe out all the evidence about the tragedy. They worked with the witnesses, demolished documents and relocated the military troops to other positions. President Poroshenko and his generals are guilty for shooting down the flight MH17, and the Ukraine Air Force participated in it.


Reccuring MH17-related disinformation.

Joint Investigative Team (JIT) has concluded that flight MH17 was shot down on 17 July 2014 by a missile of the 9M38 series, launched by a BUK-TELAR, from farmland in the vicinity of Pervomaiskiy (or: Pervomaiskyi). At that time, the area was controlled by pro-Russian fighters. The BUK-TELAR was brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently, after having shot down flight MH-17, was taken back to the Russian Federation.
