The European Parliament is preparing to adopt a resolution, targeting Orthodox “propaganda”

Summary

The European Parliament is preparing to adopt a resolution on “combating ideological diversion”. Its purpose is to ban Orthodox “propaganda”. These actions are aimed at all the Orthodox EU countries.

Disproof

The resolution referred to is about strenghtening EU strategic communication to counteract anti-EU propaganda by third parties. Not once does it mention the word Orthodox.

The LPR is bound to receive official recognition

The LPR is bound to receive official status on the world stage, and the rights and freedoms of its citizens will be ensured. Ukraine will never regain control over Luhansk.

Visa-liberalisation for Ukrainians will lead to fewer working opportunities for Czechs

Visa-liberalisation for Ukrainians will lead to fewer working opportunities for Czechs; it may also lead to the spreading of Ukrainian mafias and ultranationalists into Europe. Ukraine is violating the rights of whole groups of its population.

Disproof

The visa liberalisation will grant Ukrainians only short-term visits to Europe (90 days every half a year), and is not connected to the issue of labour liberalisation for Ukrainians. The visa liberalisation doesn't mean abolition of border security checks. Furthermore, all Ukrainians seeking to use the visa-free regime will have to posses a biometric passport. (More details on the visa process here).

Ukraine has no policy of repressions towards any of its population groups.
