Disinfo: The West artificially produces hatred in the countries of ex-USSR

Summary

The West incites hatred among the people of countries of ex-USSR. There is politically-motivated and artificially produced hatred, which is offered as a consumer product. It was offered to those, who were the beneficiaries of the project [of the Soviet Union]. They [Western nations] need this hatred because it is a tool to create conflict, albeit uncompromising. This is a mechanism, which either forces you or seduces you to refuse your identity and allows them to take everything that belongs to you.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on the Western aggression and EU's Eastern neighbours. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77469&date=, The Eastern Partnership initiative is not an EU accession process. Its aim is to build a common area of shared democracy, prosperity, stability and increased cooperation. The Eastern Partnership initiative provides an inclusive framework for the European Union Member States, plus Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine to cooperate notably on: (1) economic development and market opportunities; (2) strengthening institutions and good governance; (3) connectivity, energy efficiency, environment and climate change; and (4) mobility and people-to-people contacts. Each country is free to choose the level of ambition and the goals to which it aspires in its relations with the European Union. The Eastern Partnership initiative is not against any country; it is a mutually beneficial and constructive platform for countries in the region to build a closer relationship with the EU, if they so choose. The EU does not demand that any of its partners need to make a choice between the EU or any other countries. We stand for good neighbourly relations. The Eastern Partnership respects the individual aspirations and ambition of each partner country.

Germany has a habit of building concentration camps in Poland

Refugees do not want to live in Poland, but Germany, which has a habit of building concentration camps in Poland, wants to force immigrants to live there. — Germany, which has a vast experience in building concentration camps, thought that it would digest all the refugees, but miscalculated

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about refugees and migration. Pro-Kremlin disinformation has repeatedly referred to concentration camps when talking about migration in Europe. See more: euvsdisinfo.eu/report/brussels-summit-discusses-creation-of-concentration-camps-for-migrants/, For background on the centres for migrants see: www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/07/03/report-by-president-donald-tusk-to-the-european-parliament-on-june-european-council-meetings/, and www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44652846, The European Council called in June on the Council and the Commission to swiftly explore the concept of regional disembarkation platforms, in close cooperation with relevant third countries as well as UNHCR and IOM. Such platforms should operate distinguishing individual situations, in full respect of international law and without creating a pull factor. The Council concluded that on EU territory, those who are saved, according to international law, should be taken charge of, on the basis of a shared effort, through the transfer in controlled centres set up in Member States, only on a voluntary basis, where rapid and secure processing would allow, with full EU support, to distinguish between irregular migrants, who will be returned, and those in need of international protection, for whom the principle of solidarity would apply. All the measures in the context of these controlled centres, including relocation and resettlement, will be on a voluntary basis, without prejudice to the Dublin reform. www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/06/29/20180628-euco-conclusions-final/,
