Disinfo: The West uses Ukraine to destroy Russia like it used the Nazi Germany to destroy USSR in 1938

Summary

The West wants to destroy Russia, just as it did in 1938 through the Munich Agreement, by using the Nazi Germany. Now it uses Ukraine as a “battering ram” to destroy “our country”. The West also does this through sanctions, political pressure and NATO exercises, said Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the magazine ‘Natsionalnaya oborona’, member of the Public Council under the Russian Ministry of Defense.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on sanctions and West's aggression. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sanctions&disinfo_issue=&date= euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77319&date= Between the years 1939 and 1941, it was Soviet Russia who was Nazi Germany's ally - the two countries simultaneously invading Poland. Later during WWII, Soviet Russia, the UK, the US and many other countries were the allies in an anti-Hitler coalition. The 1938 Munich agreement had nothing to do with Soviet Russia. The EU's most recent policy vis-a-vis Russia has been formulated in 2016 in the Five Guiding Principles that include selective engagement with Russia on issues like migration, counter-terrorism, or climate change; or support for Russia's civil society. The 28 EU Member States imposed restrictive measures against the Russian Federation unanimously and transparently because of the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of a neighbouring sovereign country.

Angela Merkel publicly insulted Theresa May

Angela Merkel demonstratively humiliated the British PM Theresa May in Salzburg, by refusing to shake her hand. In this way Merkel avenged May for the “Brexit”.

Disproof

In fact, the video from the summit in Salzburg shows that May stands in the crowd of her colleagues and shakes hands with them, and Merkel approaches this crowd. The British PM turns to Merkel for a moment, smiling. Then the Chancellor of Germany shakes hands with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite, who stands next to May. She also begins to shake hands with the rest of her colleagues, still with a smile on her face. As Merkel stands with her back to the camera, throughout the scene we do not see the expression on her face. It is worth noting that on the videos published earlier that day, we see that May and Merkel enter the building of the summit together, talking between themselves. It is therefore not surprising that later they welcomed other colleagues - they had already greeted each other earlier. Further debunk by The Insider.

A map shows: Kyiv's eccentricity has already split the country

[A map of Ukraine divided between Russia, Hungary, Romania and Poland is shown on the studio screen with just a rump state left around Kyiv.] “Kyiv’s eccentricity has already split the country”. Since Transcarpathia belonged to Hungary prior to the beginning of the 20th century, Budapest wants to “regain control” of the region, “even if no one is openly talking about it”. “In the south it’s not at all historically Ukrainian either” and “the Poles are keeping an eye on Ukrainian Galicia, Polissia and Volhynia”.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation undermining Ukraine's statehood and territorial integrity. No EU country claims any territory from Ukraine. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=ukraine+romania&disinfo_issue=&date= As for Moscow's aggression: The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.

Europeanization of Moldova can turn into Islamisation

The Europeanization of the Republic of Moldova can turn into Islamisation. Moldova surrendered its economy through the free trade (agreement) with the EU. Many important Moldovan politicians are under the influence of the Arab sheikhs. Over the past two years, there were numerous trips of leading politicians to such countries as Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia and vice versa. It seems that these countries are intensively sent to Moldova to colonize it. Thus, the Islamisation of the Republic of Moldova will take place in the near future.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about islamisation: euvsdisinfo.eu/figure-of-the-week-50/, No evidence given. Regarding the The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), this is compatible with all other free trade agreements that Moldova is part of, and does not limit Moldova's ability to export its products to other countries. Moldova also retains full sovereignty over its trade policy since it is not a member of any customs union. The EU is Moldova’s first trading partner and biggest investor in the country. In 2016, it accounted for 66% of Moldova’s overall exports and 55% of total trade.
