Disinfo: The European Parliament and OSCE promote false history

Summary

By the false history, I understand something that is widely distributed, among others, by the European Parliament in Strasbourg and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The Western reaction to the article of Putin has been furious, outraged and simply funny.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism. It accuses the EU and particular EU members such as the Baltic states and Poland of the  “falsification and re-writing” of WWII history. Any disagreement with the official Kremlin’s view on the history of WWII is automatically labelled by Russia as support for “Nazism” or “falcification of history”.

The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and condemnation of totalitarian ideologies.

It is a proven fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact enabled the German and Soviet military aggression against Poland in September 1939, which resulted in the occupation of this country by Germany and USSR, triggering the beginning of WWII.

This article contained another disinformation message about the USA and NATO carrying out a propaganda war around WWII history in order to defame and isolate Russia and President Putin.

See other examples of this message: “Fake history” became a norm in the Western World, Western countries revise WWII history to evade responsibility for allowing Hitler to gather strength for the attack on the USSR and The European Parliament resolution on the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is aimed at the demonisation of Russia.

Elites have created and imposed a new religion based on hedonism and nihilism

Elites have created and imposed a new religion according to which hedonism is God and nihilism is the prophet. They have instilled compulsive consumerism among the population and facilitated the emergence of economic globalisation to satisfy the population’s dependence on consumption.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s claims.

The article seeks to discredit liberal democracy by repeating   pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the West’s moral decadence, materialism, hedonism, perverted values, and hostility to traditional religion, which Western governments allegedly seek to undermine and to replace with pseudo-religions (such as LGBT ideology).

This Malai book has the answers to MH17

Author Mahadzir Ibrahim who has published his book on the causes of the crash of the MH17 Malaysian passenger plane means that Malaysia has adopted its position on the cause of the tragedy.

The writer pays special attention to the various supposed causes of the plane crash, and the motives that prompted the participants in the investigation of this disaster, and confirms that the United States is using the accident to justify the need for new sanctions against Russia.

Disproof

A recurrent narrative on the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine, aiming to discredit the criminal trial and the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

While it is not sure on which book this statement was referring to, the only book regarding MH17 assigned to “Mahadzir Ibrahim” is titled “Membongkar Misteri Tragedi MH370 & MH17, Angkara Yahudi Dajjal Illuminati”, which reads in English “Exposing the Mysteries of the MH370 & MH17 Tragedy, a Jewish Illuminati false messiah”, in which the author discusses both tragedies as an Illuminati Antichrist conspiracy.
