Disinfo: The Swedish city of Malmö is plagued by crime due…

Summary

The Swedish city of Malmö is plagued by crime due to the high number of refugees, 50 murders were recorded during last year and the unemployment is 63%. There are official no-go zones where the police does not go.

Disproof

During last year, 12 - not 50 - murders were recorded in the city, which is in fact an unusually high number. There is no evidence that this has anything to do with refugees. The unemployment rate is not 63% - thats the employment rate, the unemployment is in fact 10,5%. The disinformation concerning no-go zones has been debunked before and is often repeated, there are no official no-go zones according to the Swedish authorities. Further debunking of that claim by Buzzfeed bzfd.it/2lBQfdQ, .

USA provided Islamic state with weapons

USA provided Islamic state with weapons. // Claims that Flynn secretly negotiated with the Russians are fabricated. // There was nothing like annexation of Crimea, but peaceful referendum.

Disproof

No evidence given // Even Mr. Flynn already admits that he had negotiated with Russians bbc.in/2kwnomR, // 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.

Russia has no plans for aggression against Ukraine, so any disputes on this topic are an ‘informational hypnosis’.

Disproof

Easily disproven by the fact that Russia has been on Ukranian territory since 2014. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
