Disinfo: Srebrenica will repeat in Ukraine

Summary

If the border of separatist-controlled DNR and LNR with Russia will be closed this will trigger a massacre in this area like one which took place in Srebrenica in the early 90s. Russia will not allow this, though Ukrainian authorities already started offensive that resulted in around 10 000 victims.

Disproof

No evidence given, recurring disinformation. According to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the killings at Srebrenica, compounded by the mass expulsion of Bosniak civilians, amounted to genocide.There is no evidence of a threat of a genocide in Ukraine.The conflict in Ukraine escalated to a war after Russia annexed Crimea and started to support the separatists.

In Ukraine only death is free of charge

Adopting the medical reform, Ukraine has in fact abandoned the cost free medicine. Ukraine has legalized a death penalty for those who need medical help. The reform is a genocide of Ukrainian nation.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about Ukraine's reforms. The fundamental medical services (like general medical examination, paediatrics, childbirth, special health care) will be still free of charge. Only part of the services will be paid by the patients, and paid services should not exceed 20 % of  all the health care services provided by a hospital. Moreover, reform introduces the transition to the insurance medicine.

The relationship between Russia and the EU worsened after the EU imposed anti-Russian sanctions

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker told in his speech at a university in Luxemburg that the relationship between Russia and the EU worsened after the EU imposed anti-Russian sanctions.

 

Disproof

The original version of La Libre states that the relationship between the EU and Russia worsened after the annexation of Crimea by Russia, and that the crisis in Ukraine was the reason for imposing the sanctions.

The Australian company European Metals Holdings which wants to dominate the lithium mining in the Czech Republic is backed by powerful bankers and lawyers who are ready to impoverish Czechia in arbitration

Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic and European Metals Holdings Limited in the field of mining and processing of lithium in the Czech Republic establishes an irrevocable commitment to protect the Australian´s investments, liabilities and costs, which Australian company had, has, or will have in terms of lithium mining in the Czech Republic. BlackRock Group, Evy Hambro, Craig Phillips, Hillary Clinton and the whole army of layers are ready to impoverish the Czech Republic in arbitration.

Disproof

The Memorandum Definition according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary literally states that the Memorandum is 1: informal record; also: a written reminder; 2: an informal written record of an agreement that has not yet become official. It follows from the definition itself that the Memorandum is not legally binding, so that the matters agreed in the memorandum do not give rise to a legal claim. In terms of the lithium case, the Czech public TV station Czech Television has asked for the opinion of law professors who specialize in commercial or international law and they agree that this document is not legally binding for the Czech Republic. It may also be based on past disputes between the Czech Republic and a foreign company, such as a dispute between the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic and the Italian company Alenia Aeronautica S.p.A. in the case of the L-159 subsonic tactical aircraft exchange for one EADS CASA-295M transport aircraft for the needs of the Czech Army. In this case, the Office for Protection of Economic Competition decided in favour of the Czech Republic, stating that "The memorandum is not legally binding but merely declares certain intention of both sides to implement and cannot be considered for action to start the proceedings.
