Disinfo: Ukrainian Nazi soldiers to be declared national heroes

Summary

The soldiers of Nazi Ukrainian formations will be declared heroes by the Kyiv authorities.

Disproof

Ukraine does not recognize Ukrainian Nazi soldiers as heroes. None of the organizations mentioned in the new Ukrainian law about social protection of participants in the struggle for country's independence in the 20th century are Nazi. This law also does not declare their members "heroes". Ukraine condemns Nazi regime and the promotion of its symbols. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that is repeated ever since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution. Further debunking by The Insider.

Poroshenko is willing to provoke bloodshed to get re-elected

Poroshenko is, as we see in Kerch, as we see in Donbas, willing to do anything and provoke any kind of bloodshed in order to secure his re-election, however improbable it is.

Disproof

Expired products allowed to be sold in Ukraine

Ukraine’s parliament allowed expired products to be sold to consumers. The MPs happily adopted laws that degrade the quality of food in Ukraine.

Disproof

The new Ukrainian law on information for food consumers is aimed at protecting consumers and establishing a product labelling system in accordance with EU's regulations. The new law does change the expiration labelling of food products. For example, foods that are stored for a period of not more than three months must be labelled to indicate both the day and month of the date they should be used by. For goods that have longer shelf lives, the label must indicate the month and year of expiration. According to the new law, the manufacturers are also obliged to list the ingredients of a product.

The European leaders don't have children because they don't care about world's future

The European leaders, specifically Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, Theresa May, Jean-Claude Juncker and the PMs of Luxembourg, Scotland, The Netherlands and Sweden, don’t have children because they don’t care about world’s future. These people don’t have an inner need for the future of the world, but only in their power over it. They don’t feel to have a home, therefore they gave Europe to migrants.

Disproof

No evidence given, conspiracy theory. In addition, there is no Prime Minister of Scotland.
