Ukraine legalizes raider attacks on churches

The new Ukrainian law on religious communities will allow raider attacks on churches.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

In fact, according to the new Ukrainian law on religious communities, the membership in a religious community is based on the principles of free will. The decision to change the subordination of a community or transfer its property is made by the religious community itself, based on majority vote.

Germany Has Limited Sovereignty

Germany’s sovereignty is limited, therefore one cannot expect full participation of its foreign affairs’ minister in international talks. Foreign and military policy of Germany is conducted under US supervision.

By urging Russia to destroy a missile system foreign affairs minister of Germany is playing a game: showing America that he is following the US political and informational line. In fact he does not care what will happen with the missiles, it is a long-term question. He understands that it is not necessary to go with the US in all directions – Nord Stream II is more important to Germany.

 

Disproof

Ahead of the Presidential Elections Poroshenko’s Junta in Ukraine Must Report to their US Masters

Ahead of the presidential elections Poroshenko’s junta in Ukraine must report on what they achieved to their masters – the US. With destroyed economy and corruption they have nothing to present. The only explanation they have for the failure is the war with the Russians. Currently, the Americans do not know whom to bet for in the elections, as there are only bandits and criminals among the candidates. Severing ties with Russia makes Poroshenko look good before his masters in the USA.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the election in Ukraine.

The disinformation messages were a reaction to the announcement of the Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine, that the country is prepared to terminate additional 50 treaties with Russia.
