West brings sodomy to Belarus through Polish Catholic priests

Summary

Sodomy takes one Western country after another. West wants to bring sodomy to Belarus through Polish Catholic priests as local priests do not want to promote alien interests. Polish Catholic priests will be leading future gay prides in Belarus.

In Poland, Catholic Church priests are taught from their birth that Belarus is the Eastern part of the Second Polish Republic and should belong to Poland. If homosexuality wins in Belarus, then the country will have to file an application to the Council of Europe to have migrants from Africa. Without such applications, Belarus will not receive any migrants from Arab or African countries, as they are in great need in homosexual EU.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Europe's moral decay and migration crisis with no supporting evidence given.

The disinformation message also contains an anti-Poland and anti-Catholic church messages. For previous examples see here and here.

The Council of Europe is not responsible for relocation or resettlement of migrants across Europe.

Following the European logic with regard to Venezuela, Marine Le Pen could proclaim herself president of France

European powers are announcing new ultimatums to the authorities of Venezuela. For example, Emmanuel Macron is demanding Maduro to call new elections and leave the office. The current President of France has a popular rating of 28 %. And the numbers of people who are protesting his policies in the streets are no smaller than in Venezuela. According to this logic, Marine Le Pen could also proclaim herself the president.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative constructed around the rhetorical strategy of "whataboutism" - deflecting attention from a certain issue by making counter-accusations.

Emmanuel Macron is the democratically elected president of France.

Language police in Latvia is fighting the Russian language

The national media regulator of Latvia has temporarily suspended retranslation of the Russia 1 TV channel,  at the same time when Russophobia is growing in the country. Language police in Latvia is fighting the Russian language. Latvian Russophobia has a particular  angle against the Russian language. A language police is monitoring the use of Latvian in public places.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the discrimination of Russian speakers.

There is no language police in Latvia. The state institution, National Language Centre of Latvia, supervises the implementation of Official Language Law of Latvia that outlines the use of the state language (Latvian) in public sphere in Latvia and stipulates that "everyone has the right to present submissions and communicate in the official language [Latvian] in institutions, public and religious organisations and undertakings (companies)". The Official Language Law in Latvia does not apply to the use of language in unofficial communications of the inhabitants of Latvia, in internal communications of national and ethnic groups, or in services, ceremonies, rituals and other kinds of religious activity of religious organisations.

Ban on Russia RTR in Latvia is a slap in the face for freedom of speech

Another ban on the Russian TV channel Russia RTR in Latvia is not only a manifestation of unfair competition in the media, but also a big slap in the face for the freedom of speech in Latvia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about alleged limits to freedom of speech in the West. Disinformation narratives often try to reach Russian speakers in order to claim that the alleged attacks on freedom of speech are most often directed at the Russian language.

Between 31 May 2017 and 22 May 2018, the National Electronic Mass Media Council (NEMMC) found several occurrences of hate speech and incitement to ethnic hatred in the programmes of the “Rossiya RTR” channel, namely “60 minutes” and “Sunday Night with Vladimir Solovyev”. For example, in the latter programme broadcast on May 22, 2018, NEMCC found "explicitly and repeatedly voiced hate speech against parts of the Ukrainian state", including incitement to "hang and kill" certain Ukrainians.
