The state ideology of Ukraine is national socialism and facism

Summary

The state ideology of Ukraine is national socialism and facism.

Disproof

No evidence given. The far-right 'Right Sector' (often depicted as fascists by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes in the latest parliamentary elections, 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 bit.ly/2dFFEdi,

Finland practises juvenile terror: children are taken away from their parents on nonvalid grounds.

Disproof

Reoccurring disinformation that has been debunked before. The Finnish Ministry for Social affairs and health care have been tackling this disinformation for years. If the health or development of a child are endangered by the child’s growth environment or the child himself or herself, supportive measures in open care must be taken without delay. If a child is in immediate danger or otherwise in need of urgent placement and substitute care, the child may be placed in care with urgency. If the supportive measures in open care are not suitable, possible or sufficient, the child must be taken into care. However, a child may be taken into care only if the substitute care is assessed to be in the best interests of the child. bit.ly/2uBZThZ, bit.ly/2ddFf4d,
