Disinfo: The Lanzarote Convention is about defiling children

Summary

The Lanzarote Convention is about defiling children. The title of the convention is a veil. In reality, this is about defiling. Only a paedophile can write such a thing. A tolerance to perversions will be imposed on our children.

Disproof

The disinformation message consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western moral decay, as well as about imposing on countries international conventions and laws that destroy the moral foundations of traditional societies.

The Council of Europe Convention on Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse, also known as “the Lanzarote Convention”, requires criminalisation of all kinds of sexual offences against children. It sets out that states in Europe and beyond shall adopt specific legislation and take measures to prevent sexual violence, to protect child victims and to prosecute perpetrators.

The Convention is a major step forward in the prevention of sexual offences against children, the prosecution of perpetrators and the protection of child victims. Protecting children is at the heart of this convention. It focuses throughout on respect for children’s rights, ensuring their well-being, responding to their views, needs and concerns, and acting at all times in their best interests.

All 47 Council of Europe member states have signed and 45 states have ratified the Convention.

Poland creates and promotes its historical myths in an active and aggressive way

Today, Poland actively and aggressively promotes its vision of history and the post-Yalta world order. Most probably, there is no such country in the EU, which creates and implements its historical policy and historical myths in such a way as Poland.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism – it accuses Poland in “falsification and re-writing” of its history. According to this policy, the Russian official historiography is the only “true” way of interpretation of historical events for the countries of Eastern and Central Europe.

The Polish historical policy is based on objective historical facts, shared by the predominant majority of mainstream historians.

Evidence in failed Trump-Russia collusion probe was fabricated by Ukrainians

Earlier this month, investigative US media revealed that a key piece of “evidence” used by the Obama White House to start the FBI probe into possible Trump-Russia collusion in 2016. The so-called “black ledger” of secret cash payments to Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort during his work in Ukraine, was a complete fabrication created from scratch by Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau and leaked to US media in the summer of 2016.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and painting Ukraine as a Washington-controlled vassal state.

The "investigative US media" invoked by Sputnik is just one article from February 2020, whose author falsely claims that the ledger "suddenly appeared in Kyiv during the 2016 US election." The article, which is mostly based on older opinion columns by the same author.
