Ukrainian MFA commits a “water genocide” against Crimean residents

Summary

Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin is organizing a “water genocide” against Crimean residents. Klimkin said that Ukraine would never allow water supplies to Crimea.

Disproof

The word genocide is frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_language%5B%5D=rus&date= but it seldom corresponds to the actual definition of a genocide http://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.html

Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin said that "Ukraine was aware of questionable Russian plans to build a new water supply route and would never allow water supplies to the occupied peninsula under a contract where Crimea was deemed to be part of Russia".

Idlib: Another provocation, which is likely to be carried out by the so-called White Helmets, is being prepared

Another provocation, which is likely to be carried out by the so-called White Helmets, is being prepared. — The White Helmets and Nusra Front terrorists have approved videos of two scenes which will be transferred to the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons; the rest will be distributed in social networks, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation noted.

White Helmets Stage Attacks to Give Pretext to US to Attack Syria.

The White Helmets, together with terrorists, have chosen 22 families with children, as well as orphans kidnapped from refugee camps to participate in their staged filming.

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.

A network of US military laboratories deployed across Georgia to deal with biological weapons

The lab in Georgia is nothing else but “a military biological base of the US Army on Georgian soil”.

//

US-funded medical facility, known as the Richard G. Lugar Center for Public Health Research, in Georgia could be a cover for a bioweapons laboratory.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that the US/the West is building biological laboratories in the Caucasus region in order to use them as a test site https://euvsdisinfo.eu/shock-conspiracy-chemical-attack/ euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77462&date=

There was no Russian occupation in Georgia

A host of TV Obiektivi, Valeri Kvaratskhelia, denied the occupation of Georgia by Russia: “When you are asked a question about occupation, why do not you answer straightly that there has been no such thing as occupation? There is not even a hint of occupation.”

“If we recognize that Abkhazia and Ossetia are occupied by Russia, then the remaining part of Georgia is occupied by Americans. They are everywhere. They rule Georgia”, said Kvaratskhelia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Georgia being allegedly occupied by the US.

Georgia is a sovereign country. Many international organizations condemned the occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the OSCE statements here and here and European Parliament's declaration.
