Disinfo: The West is to blame for what’s happening in Syria

Summary

The West is to blame for what’s happening in Syria. However, the Syrian people have risen and are still fighting for their culture, independence and future, in spite of the fascist West and their Arab allies, treacherous NGOs, media etc. Russians came to rescue Syrian people and since then over one million of Syrians have returned home.

Disproof

No evidence for any of these claims. The claims about a million refugees returning home can be found only on pro-Kremlin sites.

A new bail-in system came into effect for all European banks on 1st of January. To save banks during a crisis, money will be taken from everyone with more than 100 000 euro on their bank accounts.

Disproof

The bail-in system is a way how to avoid taxpayers losing money when their bank is in the crisis. The directive makes the shareholders and bond holders (not the account holders) take a hit first when the bank is struggling: bit.ly/1RuROor,
