Sanctions against Russia give birth to corruption in the EU

Summary of Disinformation

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.

Disproof

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.
