Summary

The Ukrainian authorities are sliding even deeper into fascist darkness.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine governed by Nazis. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=ukraine+&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77101&date=,

As witnessed by the democratic Early Parliament elections held on 26 October 2014, Ukraine is governed by a democratically elected Parliament. 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 http://bit.ly/2dFFEdi

EU membership has led to economic collapse in Bulgaria and Romania

After joining the European Union, Bulgaria’s and Romania’s expectations for a better economic situation were not met, as enterprises and factories were shut down and the rates of unemployment reached an alarming level. The same will happen in Georgia, especially in the spheres of wine-making and viticulture.

Disproof

Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union in 2007; as a result, their GDP, export, average annual wages, as well as a share of products created in their economies by industrial sector increased. In addition, European countries account for 84% and 78% of Romanian and Bulgarian exports, respectively. No indication that it would be bad for Georgia to cooperate or join the EU.

OPCW Got its Chemical Weapons Samples from Jihadists

In fact, the entire OPCW account is based on witness testimonies and material evidence provided by selected NGOs as well as medical records offered by the same questionable sources, including Belgium-based Same Justice/Chemical Violations Documentation Center of Syria (CVDCS), the notorious Syrian Civil Defense (SCD) – better known as White Helmets – and the US-based Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), as confirmed by a former UK ambassador.

Disproof

No evidence given. OPCW has previously been targeted with disinformation from Russian sources. The White Helmets have long been the target of a smear campaign promoted by the Russian and Syrian governments, as well as by conspiracy theorists in the West who typically use Russian sources like RT and Sputnik.

Furthermore, the quoted former UK ambassador has been the director of a pro-Assad lobbying group since April 2017. That group, the British Syrian Society, was founded by Fawas Akhras, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s father-in-law. Further debunking by Polygraph.info.
