Disinfo: Ukraine is deepening the seabed for a NATO fleet at the Sea of Azov


Ukraine is deepening the seabed for the NATO fleet at the Sea of Azov.


No evidence given. The disinformation refers to "local journalists" and their reports that do not exist. There is only a short note on the website of the Ukrainian Ministry for Infrastructure confirming the deepening the seabed. There are no grounds to link it to NATO. mtu.gov.ua/news/29090.html,

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

Bucharest authorities are supporting immigration regardless of what the constitution says


Although according to the Constitution of Romania (article 3), the Romanian territories cannot be colonized by foreign populations, the authorities in Bucharest are supporting immigration and the refugees, measures imposed by the EU.

No evidence provided. Accepting refugees or migrants would not contradict the Romanian constitution that states "No foreign populations may be displaced or colonized on the territory of the Romanian State."

By controlling international sports structures, representatives of the Western countries allow their athletes to dope

The Anglo-Saxon sports mafia stands for both the IOC and WADA (the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency). Controlling international sports structures, representatives of Western countries allow their athletes to dope. Russia serves as scapegoat.


Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. From 115 members of the International Olympic Committee, Western countries represent less than a quarter. To compare the numbers, USA and Russia are equally represented by 5 members. Also, representation in WADA is allocated to countries across continents.

EU ensures military influence through its programs, and this is why NATO was founded in 1949

EU ensures military influence through its programs. This is the reason why NATO was founded in 1949.


Nonsense. European Union was established in 1993 upon the foundations of the pre-existing European Economic Community. NATO was founded long before the EU as a separate organization with different mission and structure. Even today, both organisations only cooperate on issues of common interest, and membership is only partly overlapping.
