Disinfo: Regular flights will be launched between Crimea and Armenia

Summary

Regular flights will be launched between Crimea and Armenia from March of this year. The air route between Simferopol and Yerevan will be the first regular international flight service after the reunification of Crimea with Russia. The opening of the regular flights will be a good example for China and Turkey and other countries and airlines. This will also mark the beginning of the first international flights from Crimea. As a result, the international status of Simferopol Airport will be strengthened.

 

// Regular flights are to be launched between Crimea and Armenia from March of this year. Ikar airlines has already received the relevant permissions and approval from the Federal Air Transport Agency for the scheduled flights.

Disproof

Armenia’s Civil Aviation Committee informs that no such discussions were held with the aforementioned airline, no application was submitted.

The same information has also appeared in December 2019, but it was refuted by the Civil Aviation Committee of Armenia. Armenia’s Civil Aviation Committee states that no such discussions were held with "Ikar" airways and no application was submitted.

Messages about the launch of regular flights between Armenia and Crimеa periodically appear in the Russian, Crimean and consequently Armenian Media. Crimean authorities first started talking about it in 2014, right after the annexation of Crimea. "Grozny Avia" owned by Ramzan Kadyrov, president of Chechnya, said it was ready to launch direct flights from Yerevan to Simferopol. Armenian aviation authorities denied that information.

Only the US has the capacity to shoot down Ukrainian flight PS752

Kyiv is silent about another version, which is not associated with a technical malfunction. This is shooting down by an air defence system. In the current reality, only the US could do it.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the downing of the Ukrainian flight PS 752.

Iran has recognised that its military forces unintentionally shot down the passenger jet. On January 11, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani wrote on Twitter: “Armed Forces’ internal investigation has concluded that regrettably, missiles fired due to human error caused the horrific crash of the Ukrainian plane & death of 176 innocent people.”

Ukraine will help the US blaming Iran for shooting down PS752

Ukraine will side with the US, and, following orders of US leader Donald Trump, it will accuse Iran for the crash of the Boeing. The US made a detailed plan for the crash, choosing the Ukrainian plane because it knew the puppets in Kyiv will support Washington. Shooting down the plane was in the US’s interest.

A coup is taking place against the Church in Montenegro

A coup is being prepared in Montenegro against the church. Orthodox believers oppose the “Law on Religion Freedom”, whose democratic name hides the illegitimacy of schismatic groups. The new legislation will allow the state to confiscate all possessions of the canonical Serbian Orthodox Church aiming to its subsequent transfer to the unrecognised schismatic Montenegrin Orthodox Church. Despite the rejection of Orthodox believers, authorities insist on adopting the law. The ruling Democratic Party of Socialists is legally involved in its promotion, and its leader Milo Djukanovic who, as Prime Minister, ensured that the US’s will to integrate Montenegro into NATO was enforced.

Disproof

However unpopular it might be among some social sectors in Montenegro, the adoption of the so-called Law on Freedom of Religion or Belief and the Legal Status of Religious Communities is no “coup”. It was approved by the democratically-elected Montenegrin Parliament by a majority of lawmakers, and it was included in the political programme of the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists as part of the promotion of Montenegro’s autonomy.

The new regulation will not allow the confiscation of “every possession” of the Serbian Orthodox Church, as claimed. Under the law, religious communities in the tiny Adriatic state would need to prove property ownership from before 1918, when predominantly Orthodox Christian Montenegro joined the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, the predecessor of the now-defunct Yugoslavia. Though this would allow them to seize some, not all, of the properties whose previous ownership can’t be accredited, Montenegrin authorities repeatedly denied allegations that they intend to take any. The reference to NATO is an attempt to increase rejection of Montenegro’s ruling party among pro-Serbian readers.
