Ukraine and the USA do not condemn Nazism

Summary

Ukraine and the USA do not condemn Nazism. It’s now official. And they said so in the UN.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation. The US and Ukraine have several times voted against a resolution condemning the "glorification of Nazism", the US referring to freedom of speech issues and concerns that Russia is using the resolution to carry out political attacks against its neighbourswww.cbsnews.com/news/us-votes-against-anti-nazi-resolution-at-united-nations 

"We condemn without reservation all forms of religious and ethnic intolerance or hatred at home and around the world," - said Deputy U.S. Representative to the Economic and Social Council Stefanie Amadeo, explaining the US vote. "However, due to this resolution's overly narrow scope and politicized nature, and because it calls for unacceptable limits on the fundamental freedom of expression, the United States cannot support it," - she said in 2016.

"This resolution is an annual power play by one nation over its sovereign neighbours", the US stated in 2017.

Baltic states frightened by the single European army

Baltic states are frightened by the single European army. The new European security system will be anti-American. To the leadership of the Baltic states, based on Russophobia, this doesn’t look good.

Disproof

No evidence given.

The article mentions only quotes by Latvian representatives, which do not express any kind of fear. Commander of Latvian Armed Forces Leonīds Kalniņš stressed that "Europe already has an army of its own in a way".

Photo shows: Norwegians do not want NATO exercises

Photo shows: Norwegians do not want NATO exercises.

Disproof

The article is manipulative, as the NATO's Trident Juncture exercise is being carried out in Norway, based on a request by the Norwegian Government. Official documents prove that the placement of the American Naval Forces on the territory of Norway is legitimate. To illustrate the protest organized by the Norwegian Communist Party in 2018, Geworld.ge uses photos from 2016 that show a manifestation in Poland.

NATO generals scared to death by Crimean bridge

The NATO generals are scared to death by the Crimean (Kerch) bridge.

Disproof
