Disinfo: Ukraine has not fulfilled one single point in the Minsk agreement

Summary

The war in Donbas is in its eight year. In 2015, the second Minsk agreement was signed to stop the bloodshed. But Kyiv continues to ignore this document. Not one single point of this document has been fulfilled by Ukraine.

The EU policy is always: to press, to beat, to lie, to sanction and persuasion to surrender

The EU will not sever diplomatic relations with Russia, because Europe is also always for dialogue. Their paradigm always requires persuasion and persuasion. To press and persuade to surrender. To beat and persuade to surrender. To lie to your eyes and persuade you to give up. Sanctions, eye contact and surrender. Therefore, all ambassadors will remain in their places. And they will be persuaded to surrender.

Disproof

A recurrent narrative on the EU's aggressive anti-Russian ambitions. The EU, its member states and most of the world community demand that Russia fulfils its obligations as a member of the UN, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and other international organisations, as well as Russia's own legislation.

The EU and Russia have committed to upholding and respecting the fundamental values and principles of democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the market economy. These values underpin EU-Russia relations.

More than half of the young people in Sweden are criminals

According to statistics from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, more than half of the children in the tenth grade have performed crime. At the same time, almost half say that they have suffered from criminal acts.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation claim on crime in Europe, in this case Sweden, consistent with a narrative of a Western collapse. The survey from 2019, referred to in the claim, establishes that 52 percent of boys - have performed petty crimes, like shoplifting, trespassing.

It can also be mentioned that there is no tenth grade in Swedish schools.

64 people have died in Sweden from side effects of vaccination

In Sweden around 64 deaths have occurred due to side effects of vaccination against the coronavirus. This reports the daily Aftonbladet, referring to the kingdom’s medical products agency. /…/ The kingdom is mainly exploiting the vaccines from Pfizer.

Disproof

An unfounded claim, attempting to discredit the Pfizer vaccine, the outlet is deliberately misleading readers distorting the original Swedish text from the daily Aftonbladet:

Totally 64 cases of deaths have been reported to the Medical Product Agency. All of those have been elderly people with underlying medical conditions. The Agency concludes that there is no suspicions on connections between the deaths and the vaccine.
