Disinfo: Sanctions against Russia give birth to corruption in the EU


Sanctions against Russia give birth to corruption in the EU. Fruits are illegally exported from the EU to Russia through Belarus. EU farmers have to pay for getting their products into the Russian markets.


In fact, the EU sanctions against Russia do not concern the export of fruits. It was Russia introducing an import ban, including on fruits and vegetables.

Poroshenko has a power to force people to fall ill, unconscious

The president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has a power to force people to fall unconscious. At least 9 people fell unconscious during Poroshenko’s speeches.


Ukrainian population, exhausted under rule of Poroshenko, might have attacked him on a “energetic level”, but this affected people who are sitting close to the president.


Some people who don’t believe in higher powers might think these are coincidences. But Poroshenko flooded his country with blood, left millions citizens without the slightest chance for a dignified future, betrayed the Orthodox faith, turned from a parishioner of the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church into her worst persecutor, so it is unlikely that he will happily end his mandate.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy.

Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova fainted during the speech of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the program on ICTV. The president explained that the Ombudsman works 20 hours a day for the liberation of captured Ukrainian sailors in the Azov Sea.

Ukraine is the gateway for drug transit to Europe and Russia

Ukraine is one of the main gateways for drugs to get to Russia and to Europe. It was confirmed by the United Nations and the European Union. Ukrainian citizens act as couriers and suppliers, they are also organising an underground drug production and distribution in Russia.


The United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime's latest analysis of drug markets show that drugs are transported to Europe and Russia mostly from Central Asia, the Balkan route and Afghanistan.
