UN Global Compact for Migration is classified and will result in thousands of migrants coming to Georgia

Summary

UN Global Compact for Migration is a classified document.

//

It will cause a new wave of Asian and African settlement in Georgia, which can be compared to the invasions of Mongols, Turks and Persians.

Disproof

The UN Global Compact for Migration is a public document, available on the UN webpage.

//

The aim of the UN Global Compact is to better manage migration at local, national, regional and global levels, in a cooperative manner. It is non-legally binding; any measures taken to tackle migration are within the remit of the signatory countries. Therefore, the document does not force Georgia or any other country to let in any migrants and as such, cannot result in new waves of migrants.

In Ukraine, the caricature government finally squeezed out of itself a caricature church. // The false patriarch Filaret and the president Poroshenko, hated in Ukraine, handed over everything. Around ten stauropegic monasteries and dozens of churches will be handed over to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

//

[Ecumenical Patriarch] Bartholomew of Constantinople has said that the monasteries in Crimea need to be handed over, Poroshenko answered that he cannot do that. Then Bartholomew said: you have to transfer finances then.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation around the autocephaly of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

In October the St. Andrew's Church, located in Kyiv, was handed over to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople for permanent use. There has been public discussion about transferring one church in Lviv in the same manner, but there is no evidence of plans to hand over dozens of churches.

Outside the parliament there were small groups of protesters opposing the decision.
