Disinfo: The EU is a nazi brainchild

Summary

The EU is a nazi brainchild: it is a bureaucratic, centralised, dictatorial European federal super state that Hitler planned to realize after the Second World War.

Disproof

The European Union was set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War. Today, it consists of 28 independent and sovereign member countries (bit.ly/1g2oBJj), .

The refugee influx is masterminded by US billionaire and speculator George Soros

The refugee influx is masterminded by US billionaire and speculator George Soros via over a hundred of NGOs, which whisper in the ear of the European Union to encourage the settlement of migrants.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about George Soros.

The refugee crisis is a consequence of Syria’s civil war which forced more than 4.5 million people to flee their homeland (bit.ly/20sP8fS), . The EU believes that enabling civil society organisations and people at the grass roots to take an active role in policy-shaping and decision-making is key to the democratic legitimacy of public institutions and their work (bit.ly/1VeMq9O), .

The war of sanctions is losing its supporters in Europe

The war of sanctions is losing its supporters in Europe. In addition to economic losses, there is another reason of growing anti-sanction sentiment in the EU: Europeans fear of strengthening of the U.S. hegemony.

Disproof

On March 10 the European Council extended until 15 September 2016 EU restrictive measures against 146 people and 37 companies, in view of the continuing undermining or threatening of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine (bit.ly/1SUhHZO), . Following the Foreign Affairs Council on 14 March 2016, the HRVP recalled that the implementation of the Minsk agreement is a key condition for any substantial change in the EU's stance towards Russia (bit.ly/22cDUNo), .
