Russia did not interfere with the elections in the US or France nor has Russia anything to do with the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.


The US intelligence community have evidence that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 presidential election in the US bit.ly/2iRbS9b, , there are also documents indicating that the Russian state-controlled think-tank RISS draw up a plan to influence the election reut.rs/2osYIxO, . There are indications that Russian hackers attempted to interfere with the French election this year bit.ly/2tMoDDC, . See also the statement of former FBI chief Comey about Russian interference bit.ly/2rj0KBQ, . Denial of Russian involvement in the conflict in Ukraine is one of the most repeated pro-Kremlin disinformations. But the evidence to the contrary is overwhelming, much of it coming, inadvertently or deliberately, from Russian troops themselves.

Finland practises juvenile terror: children are taken away from their parents on nonvalid grounds.


Reoccurring disinformation that has been debunked before. The Finnish Ministry for Social affairs and health care have been tackling this disinformation for years. If the health or development of a child are endangered by the child’s growth environment or the child himself or herself, supportive measures in open care must be taken without delay. If a child is in immediate danger or otherwise in need of urgent placement and substitute care, the child may be placed in care with urgency. If the supportive measures in open care are not suitable, possible or sufficient, the child must be taken into care. However, a child may be taken into care only if the substitute care is assessed to be in the best interests of the child. bit.ly/2uBZThZ, bit.ly/2ddFf4d,
