Merkel recognized the failure of the German migration policy

German Chancellor Angela Merkel recognized, in Chemnitz, the failure of the German migration policy.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Angela Merkel. During her visit to Chemnitz, Angela Merkel appealed to residents not to let extremists set the agenda. She admitted that mistakes had been made over Germany's refugee policy, but said that the mistake wasn't in helping asylum-seekers at short notice.

Ukraine and the USA do not condemn Nazism

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 neighbours. www.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.
