Terrorists receive residence permits in EU countries

Summary of Disinformation

As time has shown, Europeans are not able to distinguish a terrorist from a refugee. As a result, residence permits in European capitals have been given to those who a couple of years ago were beheading, hanging and killing the civil population of Syria.


Recurring Kremlin disinformation narrative about the weak West, the migration crisis, islamisation of Europe, inability to fight terror and to distinguish terrorists from refugees. To receive a residence permit in EU countries, people go through lengthy checks, verifications and controls. Many can wait for years and be refused. Over the past 20 years, the European Union has put in place some of the highest common asylum standards in the world. More information can be found here.
