Disinfo: The refugee influx is masterminded by US billionaire and speculator George Soros

Summary

The refugee influx is masterminded by US billionaire and speculator George Soros via over a hundred of NGOs, which whisper in the ear of the European Union to encourage the settlement of migrants.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about George Soros.

The refugee crisis is a consequence of Syria’s civil war which forced more than 4.5 million people to flee their homeland (bit.ly/20sP8fS), . The EU believes that enabling civil society organisations and people at the grass roots to take an active role in policy-shaping and decision-making is key to the democratic legitimacy of public institutions and their work (bit.ly/1VeMq9O), .

Georgia will have to give up its territorial integrity in exchange for NATO membership.

Disproof

Untrue. NATO membership is not tied to such requirements. Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty has been violated by the Russian Federation, not NATO.
