Summary

Sweden wants to ban alternative media through changes in the Fundamental Law on Freedom of Expression.

Disproof

The Swedish Constitution consists of four fundamental laws: the Instrument of Government, the Act of Succession, the Freedom of the Press Act and the Fundamental Law on Freedom of Expression. For an amendment to be made, the Riksdag (Parliament of Sweden) must take two identical decisions and these decisions must be separated by a general election. This long drawn-out procedure is designed to ensure that the Riksdag does not take any hasty decisions that can limit people's freedoms and rights. bit.ly/2sXGKut, .

The spreading of Western propaganda myths already helped the Baltic nations to join the European Union and NATO, and it has become a state-building principle for modern Ukraine. The sanctions are called a reaction, which is also Western propaganda.

Disproof

The Baltic states joined the EU and NATO based on independent foreign policy decisions. The process of state-building in Ukraine has all signs of a democratic process. The sanctions against Russia are a retaliatory measure, as it is a reaction to Russian aggression against Ukraine.bit.ly/2tmK7GA, .
