Sweden's feminist government orders not to investigate rapes to protect the immigrants that committed them

Summary of Disinformation

In 2017, 22,000 sexual crimes were registered in Sweden, 7,370 of them rapes. 58% of men convicted of rape and attempted rape over the past five years were born outside the European Union, and in cases where the victims didn’t know the attackers, the proportion of foreign-born sex offenders was more than 80%. But the “feminist” Swedish government (according to its own denomination) ordered police not to investigate it.


There is no evidence to support the claim that the Swedish government has forbidden the police authority to investigate sexual violence, performed by immigrants.

The statistics reproduced in the article are genuine, extracted from an investigation by Swedish public television SVT and quoted by media like BBC. However, the narrative against immigrants and feminists is misleading and in line with a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative on migration. Similar cases can be found here.
