By 2050, the European Union will become Islamic

By 2050, the European Union will become Islamic. Some people in Europe are already replacing the star on the Christmas tree with a crescent moon [Islamic iconographic symbol].

The green banner of the Prophet will unite the European Union much more strongly than bureaucrats in Brussels. With migrants continuing to arrive in Europe, the balance is shifting even more towards Islamization. According to the most moderate forecasts, Europe will change completely and irrevocably by 2050.

The day will come when Russia will need to defend its western borders more than its southern borders from penetration by radical Islamists.

Disproof

No evidence is provided to support this claim.

This case exemplifies recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the Islamization of Europe and decaying, threatened European values.

Ukraine is preparing a new provocation in the Kerch Strait

Kyiv is preparing a new provocation in the Kerch Strait. According to a video, Kyiv has transferred military boats to Odessa.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Ukraine and "provocation" in Kerch strait.

According to Stop Fake, the Youtube video quoted by Russian media shows tugs and pontoons, not military boats. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported that in November specialists of the Ukrainian Armed Forces participated in competitions for the best pontoon platoon.
