Disinfo: Swedes will be deported from Sweden

Summary

The Arab Party of Sweden calls for the deportation of the aboriginal population of Sweden, who has a critical view on migrants and the ideas of “diversity”. This refers primarily to Swedish pensioneers.

Disproof

An unfounded claim, presented without any source, and a recurrent narrative of Sweden as a country on the verge of collapse. Similar cases can be found here.

An "Arab Party" did actually appear in Sweden in the summer of 2020; with currently around 400 followers on Facebook. According to research done by Swedish fact-checking group Källkritikbyrån, the “party” likely consists of one single individual.

No proof that Navalny was poisoned

We are seeing a very dangerous period of political pressure on Russia… The claims of (Alexei) Navalny getting poisoned is not supported by proof.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the poisoning of Alexei Navalny, portraying Western governments and institutions as inherently Russophobic and trying to harm and encircle Russia.

Clinical findings at the Charité hospital indicated that Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. Subsequent toxicological tests provided unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group in the blood samples of Alexei Navalny. 

Navalny was not poisoned, it was his chronic diseases that worsened

Nobody poisoned (Russian opposition leader Alexei) Navalny anywhere. Navalny was hospitalised only due to the worsening of his critical illnesses.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the poisoning of Alexei Navalny.

The poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was confirmed in three independent laboratories. The German Federal government said that toxicological tests provided  “unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group” in the blood samples of Alexei Navalny.

Poroshenko is planning a military coup

The information and propaganda attack on the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy from the information channels belonging to Petro Poroshenko that began in the autumn cannot be assessed as anything other than the preparation of a coup.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the 5th President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

No evidence of propaganda or disinformation about Zelenkyy is given. No evidence of Petro Poroshenko planning a coup.
