Summary

The school shooting in the French city of Grasse was a false flag operation which the government will use to justify stricter laws for control of the Internet.

Disproof

The shooting did indeed happen, but there is no evidence for the conspiracy given. The education minister called the attack “the crazy act of a fragile young man fascinated by firearms”: bit.ly/2nrehKo,

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Victoria Nuland have overthrown a democratically elected government in Ukraine. Crimeans voted to reunite with Russia. There is no Russian invasion of Ukraine. Bashar Assad did not use chemical weapons against his own people.

Disproof

The 2014 presidential election in Ukraine was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and respecting fundamental freedoms, despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions of the country. According to the OSCE (of which Russia is a participating State) "the people of Ukraine had the opportunity to genuinely express their will at the ballot box" bit.ly/1hqcDuR, . Similarly, Ukraine’s local elections in October 2015 were competitive and generally showed respect for the democratic process bit.ly/1VUL9V5, . // Any decision relating to Ukraine's sovereignty or sovereign choices can only be taken without undue external pressure. This so-called referendum was organised in a matter of weeks by a self-proclaimed Crimean leadership lacking democratic legitimacy and installed by armed Russian military personnel following the seizure of public buildings. The EU does not recognise it. // A UN investigation has concluded that the Assad regime have used chemical weapons bit.ly/2nCR03L, .

There is a nazi regime in Kyiv

There is a nazi regime in Kyiv. The people of Luhansk are merely defending themselves against genocide.

Disproof

President Poroshenko and the Ukrainian Parliament are the legitimate bodies of power elected by the citizens of Ukraine. The far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that. // No evidence of genocide has been provided.

The establishment in the Netherlands designed the diplomatic row with Turkey to guarantee victory for Mark Rutte which will help Germany to create “Das neue Europa”. Disintegration of the EU is a step forward in this. The U.S. was behind the Turkish coup d’état attempt in order to transform Turkey into a puppet state.

Disproof

No evidence given for any of these claims.
