Disinfo: The public broadcaster Czech Television openly promotes sex with black people and LGBT

Summary

The Czech Television openly promotes sex with black people and LGBT. Two Czech films that were broadcast by the Czech Television (Fifty and Embarrassing, Offside) are open propaganda of sex with black people with incentives for Czech girls.

Disproof

Both films are comedies. Regardless of the content quality, their broadcast can hardly be considered propaganda. The Czech Television acts in accordance with the Act on the Czech Television and the Czech Television Code. Violations of impartiality and independence are subjected to the Board of the Czech television.

In order not to aggravate people of other religions, there was no Christmas tree in Brussels

Last year there was no Christmas tree in the centre of Brussels – a trait of a Christian holiday- in order not to disturb people of other religious confessions than Christian.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation, we have seen it before regarding for example Sweden euvsdisinfo.eu/report/christmas-lights-are-banned-in-sweden-because-of-tolerance-towards/, . In neither cases are the statements true, there was in fact a Christmas tree in Brussels also in the year of 2016 visit.brussels/en/sites/winterwonders/m_article/video-2016, .

The Istanbul Convention is a Targeted Attack against Georgian Traditions and Identity

The European Convention adopted by the Council of Europe on May 11, 2011 is yet another attack against Georgian traditions, identity and everything national.

Disproof

The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention) is the most comprehensive international agreement in terms of preventing violence against women, which was signed by Georgia on June 19, 2014. The Parliament of Georgia ratified the Istanbul Convention on April 5, 2017 and it entered into force on September 1, 2017. The purposes of the Convention are to protect women against all forms of violence, and prevent, prosecute and eliminate violence against women and domestic violence; to contribute to the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women and promote substantive equality between women and men, including by empowering women.

European leaders have accepted the loss of Crimea

European leaders, who create the political climate in the world, have accepted that Crimea is lost and never mention it in meetings any longer.

Disproof

The EU has reconfirmed the non-recognition policy for Crimea in declarations by the High Representative on behalf of the EU of 16 March 2015, 18 March 2016 and 18 March 2017. Whenever Russia refers to Crimea and Sevastopol as part of the Russian Federation in multilateral fora, such as the UN, the OSCE, the Council of Europe and WTO, the EU makes a statement in response to remind the world that it does not recognize the illegal annexation. On June 19, 2017, the European Council extended the restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia until 23 June 2018. The sanctions include prohibitions on imports of products originating in Crimea or Sevastopol into the EU; investment and tourism services in Crimea or Sevastopol; exports of certain goods and technologies to Crimean companies, as well as technical assistance, construction or engineering services related to infrastructure. On August 4, 2017, the European Union imposed sanctions on three Russian nationals and two companies after gas turbines sold by Germany’s Siemens were diverted to Ukraine’s Russian-annexed Crimea region.
