Disinfo: Traditional European cuisine is under attack of the Muslim citizens

Summary

Traditional European cuisine is under attack of the Muslim citizens. Proved by the incident in Copenhagen Hospitality College (a cooking school) in Denmark, which required tasting of pork and wine from its Muslim students; and later it was forced by the Danish government to take the pork and wine off the menu.

Disproof

The Copenhagen Hospitality College case took place in 2012 and therefore cannot be considered a current consequence of the migrant crisis. The school did not have to take the pork and wine off the menu. It was merely decided that Muslim students do not have to taste pork and wine and can ask their fellow students for help instead: bit.ly/1SLYfBn,

Non-visa rules will grant no privileges to Georgian citizens

Non-visa rules will grant no privileges to Georgian citizens other than they will no more have to stand in long queues.

Disproof

Presently Georgian citizens have to pass through seven stages to arrive in the Schengen area. After the successful finalization of the visa liberalization process with the EU, Georgian citizens, holding biometric passports, will be able to enter the Schengen area without visas: Georgian citizens will no more have to pay a visa fee of EUR 35, they will not have to fill in an application, to set a date for a visa interview, to come to an interview and return later to get an answer (wapo.st/1MC2f2L), .

After the US-led violent coup against the legitimate government of Ukraine, which Moscow did not want to accept, the West imposed a number of economic sanctions on Russia.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), . The Yanukovych government lost its legitimacy following the brutal crackdown it ordered on peaceful protesters (bit.ly/1Tl9X7W), . The EU imposed restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and deliberate destabilisation of a neighbouring sovereign country (bit.ly/19wwzP3), .
