There is a witch hunt in Lithuania against Russian-language print media

While the Lithuanian president is speaking about the freedom of speech, there is a witch hunt going on in the country against Russian-language print media, searching for alleged state enemies.

Disproof

The National Lithuanian Radio and Television Commission has proposed to block TV channels spreading propaganda on the internet, which initiative is also supported by the Lithuanian Cable Television Association (LKTA).

The USA forced the EU to impose sanctions against Russia

The USA forced the EU to impose sanctions against Russia and does not allow Russia to solve the problem.

Disproof

All EU sanctions against Russia were imposed after major illegal actions by the Russian Federation, or against persons that have directly threatened the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The first round of EU sanctions against Russia was introduced on 17 March 2014. The first bans and asset freezes against persons involved in actions against Ukraine's territorial integrity followed Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea.
