Summary

White Helmets group, a pseudo-organisation created, funded and lead by the British security services, has recently abducted several children in order to stage a new act of provocation with chemical weapons in Syria. Children will be the victims of this new provocation.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on White Helmets and chemical attacks in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77488&date=, euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77353&date=,

Earlier, pro-Kremlin disinformation has claimed that both the 2017 attack in Khan Sheikhoun and 2018 in Douma were faked. UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Background:

On 7 April 2018, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

According to the World Health Organisation, during the shelling of Douma on Saturday, an estimated 500 patients presented to health facilities exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2018/chemical-attacks-syria/en/

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

Juncker warns: Europe will become too small and it will not be important

The president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker warns that Europe will become too “small” and it will not be important anymore on the international stage. It risks to loose its position in G7.
Disproof

In his original speech at the Carlos de Amberes foundation, president Juncker did not say that Europe will become less important or would lose its position in G7 as a whole. He mentioned that Europe's population will become smaller compared to other nations and that working together as an "indivisible entity" would be key. Here is the quote: "By the end of 20th century Europe represented 20% of global population, today - it's 6% (...). In a few years, none of the EU member states will account for even 1% of the world's population. In a few years, there will be no EU member state member of G7. Therefore, (...) we will have to rediscover our forces that make us an active whole and an indivisible entity".
