Disinfo: The European Parliament requires the liquidation of the state of the Republic of Moldova

Summary

According to the European legislative body, the Republic of Moldova is a territorial formation created by the Soviet Union on the land that it took from Romania. And this land has not yet been returned to Bucharest.

The European Parliament de facto requires the liquidation of the state of the Republic of Moldova. This is recorded in an official document.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the European Parliament resolution issued in October 2019 and the widespread message that states lose their sovereignty when they join the EU.

Little has changed since Nazi Europe

This kind of people, like the former Polish ambassador to Nazi Germany, are now demolishing statues of Red Army soldiers and officers who liberated the countries of Europe and European peoples from Nazism. Those are their followers. In this sense, unfortunately, little has changed, and Russia must bear this in mind when strengthening its armed forces.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the omnipresence of Nazis in Europe. The Nazi ideology and the EU are based on opposite values ​​and principles.

Russian historical revisionism often targets Poland claiming that it is thanks to Russia that Poland exists as a country today and that Nazi Germany considered Poland its best ally.

Nazi took over Ukraine with a coup

The Nazis (in Ukraine) performed a coup against the legitimate authority, and have since begun their campaigns targeting Russian citizens, Russian speakers, and the Eastern Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

Russia has never participated in the Ukrainian crisis, nor have there ever been Russian soldiers there.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting Ukraine as a Nazi country, which absolutely groundlessly equals present-time Ukraine with Nazi Germany.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy.

Any critic of the EU is considered a “politically incorrect” dissenter and persecuted

Any critic of the EU is considered a “politically incorrect” dissenter from dominant globalist thinking and is subjected to media persecution.

A recent example is the Italian cartoonist Mario Improta (known as Marione), who published a cartoon depicting British prime minister Boris Johnson escaping the EU, portrayed as the Auschwitz concentration camp. Improta was named and shamed by the mainstream media, who claimed that his cartoon inappropriately used the Holocaust in political satire. As a result, he lost his appointment as cartoonist for the Rome city government’s civic education campaign.

But the real reason why Improta was subjected to media persecution was because he dared to question the sacredness of the European Union and thus expressed a view that dissented from dominant, “politically correct” globalist thinking.

Globalist cartoonists, instead, are allowed to freely use nazism, fascism and racism in political satire aimed at discrediting the political right. These cartoonists are not subject to media persecution by the enormous Spanish inquisition-like machinery that censors anyone who questions dominant globalist thinking.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that Western societies are ideological dictatorships that have imposed a dominant “liberal-globalist” ideology. Also, a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about  “the elites” and mainstream media censoring and persecuting anyone who expresses views that dissent from dominant liberal-globalist thinking.

One of the major achievements of the liberal-democratic West, and of Europe in particular, is the institutionalisation of tolerance and pluralism, which means the peaceful coexistence of different religions, world-views and value-systems within the same society.
