Disinfo: Western Europe is a subordinate to the Anglo-Saxon world, which is dominated by the US.

Summary

The world consists of a number of competing civilisations. Western Europe is a Germanic-Roman civilisation which is, at present, subordinate to the Anglo-Saxon one. The latter is dominated by the US. Germany is fed up with this situation and lately has been attempting, unsuccessfully, to break free from the Anglo-Saxon chains.

Disproof

This message is a conspiracy consistent with one of the most common pro-Kremlin narratives alleging that certain countries are no longer truly sovereign.

Germany and the US have close partner relations as two sovereign and independent countries.

See also earlier disinformation cases alleging that Germany is a vassal of the US, Germany is the executor of US hegemony over Europe; The USA is controlling Europe through occupied Germany; Germany will have to choose between defending Europe's interest and catering to Washington.

There are more than 4 million refugees in Germany

About 3 million Afghan refugees are stuck in Iran. Tehran with the great effort delays them, not allowing to continue their way further to Germany or France. If the Afghans succeed in entering Europe, Germany will be doomed. There are already more than 4 million refugees (mainly from Syria). And France is not in the best shape although there are not so many migrants there.But the situation in North Africa shows that Paris will still be weeping because of this problem.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the migration crisis in Europe.

Exaggerated and unproven information on 4 million refugees in Germany. No evidence or reliable sources given. During 2015 and 2016, Germany admitted more than one million persons seeking protection. Germany reported the largest total number of immigrants (917.1 thousand) in 2017. According to a recent (February 2019) factsheet from the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency), the number of refugees in Germany is 1,4 million.

George Soros controls Ukrainian leader

Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy and numerous members of his team are stooges of George Soros and the Liberals.

Disproof

The story advances the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative painting Ukraine as a geopolitical hostage of the United States, and the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory portraying philanthropist George Soros as a menace bent on weakening Russia and meddling in its "sphere of influence."

No sources are presented for the claim, and not a single member of Zelenskyy's team are named. The imagined links between Soros and Zelenskyy were first reported by Rossiyskaya Gazeta, the official newspaper of the Russian government, in a February 2019 article which counts "friends of George Soros and other globalists" among members of Zelenskyy's election team, without further elaboration.

Western elites behind ongoing genocide of Christians

A thousand French churches were vandalised in 2018, amid total media silence. European elites are not just indifferent to the ongoing genocide of Christians, but outright complicit in it. Western politicians want to get rid of Christians to implement a new world order, and are using Muslims to do their dirty job.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative portraying Christians, who account for three quarters of Europe's total population, as an oppressed minority.

A February 2019 Interior Ministry communique records 1,063 "anti-Christian acts" committed throughout 2018, without further differentiation between the type, gravity, or target of these acts. The figures have been reported in all of France's widest-read newspapers.
