Disinfo: The majority of newborns in Brussels are from the new Islamic community

Summary

Europe is experiencing a great migration of nations. 65 million refugees can already reach Europe. They are mostly men coming from Africa. These people go to Europe to live according to their own rules. Nowadays the majority of newborns in Brussels are from the new Islamic community.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about migrants and Islamisation. There is no data proving the claim that the majority of infants currently born in Brussels are from the new Islamic community. According to the Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis, the precise data cannot be acquired. However, data from the Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences shows that the dominant religion in Belgium is Catholicism (52,9% in 2015), while there are only 5,2% Muslims in the country. According to official statistics, the number of people residing in an EU Member State with citizenship of a non-member country on 1 January 2018 was 22,3 million, representing merely 4,4% of the EU-28 population. In addition, there were 17,6 million persons living in a given EU Member State as of 1 January 2018 with citizenship of another EU Member State. In absolute terms, the largest numbers of non-nationals living in the EU Member States on 1 January 2018 were found in Germany (9,7 million persons), the United Kingdom (6,3 million), Italy (5,1 million), France (4,7 million) and Spain (4,6 million). Similar disinformation cases can be found here and here.

Sweden cancelled Christmas TV concert not to irritate migrants

Swedish TV cancelled broadcast of the most popular Christmas concert, in order not to irritate Muslim immigrants.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about the decline of Christianity in Europe. The outdoor concert 'O, Holy Night' was broadcast live from the city of Örebro by national broadcaster TV4. The broadcast last Christmas was cancelled, due to contract issues, as English language Swedish site The Local writes.

Ukraine is a vassal to the US, Nato and the EU

For the past five years, the Kiev-dominated Ukrainian state has been nothing but a puppet regime for Washington, NATO and to a lesser extent the European Union. It has served as a spearhead against Russia with vile provocations and slander. It is in fact an abomination of international law and democratic principles.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative, challenging Ukraine's statehood. Similar cases can be studied here, here and here. Ukraine is a sovereign state, one of the founding members of the United Nations. Neither US, nor the EU countries in general or Germany in particular control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, but were violated by Russia in 2014.

Religious organisations are employed in the Western war against Armenia

As Western NGOs have failed to draw Armenia away from its ties to Russia, religious organisations, representing the Global Government, have been employed. In the Western undeclared war on Yerevan, Mormons are playing the role of intelligence agents, as they are capable of collecting information across Armenian territory freely. In turn, the Jehovah’s Witnesses perform the role of a military service that occupies entire cities and villages, while forming their new legions from local citizens. In essence, the purpose of these sects is to conduct subversive activities, to destroy the foundations of statehood under the pretext of promoting faith.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood.
