European countries accuse Ukraine of releasing a radioactive isotope into the continent’s atmosphere.

Disproof

No European publication has reported that the leak originated in Ukraine. Only Russian media, such as RIA Novosti Ukraina, Komsomolskaya Pravda, Anna News, Forum.msk.ru, Operativnaya Linia, Otkrytaya elektronnaya gazeta claimed that the source of the leak was Ukraine. According to the Independent ind.pn/2m70708, , the traces found in Northern Europe could have been inadvertently released by a pharmaceutical company that produces radioactive medicines. Russian media regularly publish stories about what it calls extremely dangerous Ukrainian nuclear power plants, predicting that Ukraine’s atomic sector is on the point of collapse and it has been debunked before by StopFake. Ukraine’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency states that there were no nuclear mishaps in Ukraine that could have resulted in an iodine-131 leak. bit.ly/2n30sBD,

Swedish society is willing to watch as their country is raped. Sweden is today the proud holder of the title of “Rape Capital of Europe”.

Disproof

Sweden does have 63.5 reported rape incidents per 100,000 citizens, however, this is attributable to differences in how a country reports crime. In Sweden, each case of sexual violence is reported as a separate incident, for example, if someone says they were raped by a partner every day for a fortnight, officers will record 14 potential crimes. In other countries, the claim could be logged as a single incident. The definition of rape is also broader in Sweden than it is elsewhere.
