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.

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.

Not a single criminal case has been opened in Germany for more than 500 sex crimes committed by refugees

Not a single criminal case has been opened in Germany for more than 500 sex crimes committed by refugees. // George Soros stands behind the refugee crisis in Europe.

Disproof

The German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) releases an annual situation report on crime in Germany, with an emphasis on criminality among immigrants. www.bka.de/SharedDocs/Downloads/DE/Publikationen/PolizeilicheKriminalstatistik/2017/pks2017ImkBericht.html?nn=96600,

Out of 9.414 cases of rape/sexual assault 37% (=3.483) in 2017 included a non-German suspect and 15.9% (=1.469) included an immigrant suspect.  The definition of immigrant includes asylum-seekers; those who have been allowed to stay temporarily despite not having received asylum status; illegal immigrants; and refugees who have been brought into Germany on the basis of quotas. Suspects whose asylum applications have been approved are not included.

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/,

Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference

The US has organised a junta in Ukraine. [—] Maidan was a US-organised coup and Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference in its internal policies. Ukraine is not a sovereign country any more.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine's statehood and Ukrainian nation. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B0%5D=77158&date=&offset=10 Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc.

There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT. The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and continues to condemn this violation of international law, and that Russia’s illegal actions remain a direct challenge to international security, with grave implications for the international legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all States.
