The US is provoking a civil war in Ukraine

Summary

The US is provoking a civil war in Ukraine in order to force this country to break off railway communication with Russia and thereby prevent Beijing from reviving the ‘Great Silk Road‘ from China to Europe through Russia.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. The war in Ukraine is a war between Russian-backed separatists and the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Paris cancels the annual Christmas markets, instead, it will only hold Ramadan

According to a municipality spokesman, the French capital wants the Champs-Élysées to focus on the aesthetic and cultural dimension in the Christmas season, reflecting the uniqueness of the location. Marcel Campion, who has been organizing this Christmas market since 2008, has prevented the deterioration of the quality of the markets, and he does not understand why the city management has decided to cancel them. It is strange that the city organizes a celebration of Ramadan but will not organize one simple Christmas market.

Disproof

These kind of disinformation stories regularly appear as Christmas approaches euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Christmas&disinfo_issue=&date=, . There is no link between the decision to renew the Christmas fare and Ramadan. For the past nine years, 77-year-old Marcel Campion, known as "king of the fairground" has been in charge of the event but in the summer Paris City Council voted unanimously not to renew the deal with Campion. "Paris wants to host a Christmas market on the Champs-Elysées, but we want to take the time to reflect on the best solution for Parisians and tourists," a City Hall spokesperson told Le Parisien. www.thelocal.fr/20171108/why-there-wont-be-a-christmas-market-on-the-champs-elysees-this-year, .

The European Parliament is violating the UN Convention in order to force us to accept the Muslim immigrants.

The European Parliament’s quota decisions contradict the “Convention on the Status of Refugees” adopted by all UN member states. Article 26 on Freedom of Movement states that “Each Contracting State shall allow refugees lawfully in their territory to choose a place of residence and move freely within its territory, subject to certain exceptions laid down in proceedings under the same circumstances as foreigners”. This means that nobody, not even the European Parliament, should be able to redistribute refugees.

Disproof

The EU asylum policy's objectives are to develop a common policy on asylum, subsidiary protection and temporary protection, with a view to offering an appropriate status to all third-country nationals who need international protection, and to ensure that the principle of non-refoulement is observed. This policy must be consistent with the 1951 Geneva Convention and the 1967 Protocol thereto. www.europarl.europa.eu/atyourservice/en/displayFtu.html?ftuId=FTU_5.12.2.html,

The freedom of movement as defined in Article 26 of the Convention on the Status of Refugees clearly states that each state must ensure that a refugee who is legally present on its territory has freedom of movement within the borders of that state. This means that the Czech Republic must ensure that a refugee who is legally resident in the Czech Republic can move freely within the Czech Republic.
