Disinfo: Maidan was organised by Georgian fighters and resulted in attacks by Ukraine on Russia

Summary

Georgian fighters organised Maidan in the center of the Ukrainian capital, and as a result the attacks on Russia began.

 

Disproof

No evidence given to prove that in 2014 any “Georgian fighters” organised protests in Ukraine.

The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT.

Finally, Ukraine has never attacked Russia nor before or after Euromaidan. On the contrary, it was Moscow, which annexed the Ukrainian territory [the Crimean Peninsula] and and started military intervention in 2014.

There is no evidence that 13 Russians influenced anything but the US has found they had influenced everybody

[The US court] has found that they [13 indicted Russians] had influenced everybody. And at the same time, there is no evidence proving they [these Russians mentioned above] had influenced something. But they had interfered.

 

Disproof

The US Justice Department charged 13 Russians and three companies on February 16, 2018. The indictment does not say that 13 Russians "influenced everybody".

The indictment presents 37 pages of evidence that the defendants "conspired to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the government through fraud and deceit for the purpose of interfering with the US. political and electoral processes, including the presidential election of 2016".

The Muslim conquest of Europe is continuing, and the West is in decline

The Muslim conquest of Europe is continuing, and the West is in decline. The situation is worst in Sweden, which only has a couple of years left. The government is raising working hours higher and higher and the pensions system needs to be reformed – all because the social welfare system is overburdened by immigrants. The second to fall will be Italy and France, especially after Emmanuel Macron announced he would start negotiations about placing France on Islamic foundations.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that Sweden is collapsing due to migration euvsdisinfo.eu/imminent-threat-of-civil-war-in-sweden/, . Actually, Sweden is doing quite well www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/why-sweden-beats-most-other-countries-at-just-about-everything/, .

President Emmanuel Macron never said he intends to negotiate about placing France on Islamic foundations.

The US fooled the Czechs by selling Czech weapons to terrorist groups

During the past decades, the US has played the role of the ‘police of the world’. Yet the US has been the one pulling the strings in the background. This is also what they are doing with the crisis in Syria: Czech media wrote that Czech weapons were found in the possession of Syrian Islamic militants, but the Czech government says it did not break any international agreements because the US bought the weapons and then gave them to the terrorist groups.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring disinformation about US supporting terrorists in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=isis+us&disinfo_issue=&date=,
