Disinfo: Western values eventually eliminate nations

Summary

The introduction of recent, postmodern Western values ​​in Georgia will lead to the devaluation of national values ​​and, consequently, the liquidation of the Georgian nation.

The campaign to discredit the Orthodox religion and the legalisation of same sex marriage are two events whose introduction into Georgian society will lead to the complete devaluation of the main identifying characteristic of the Georgian nation – the Orthodox religion. This process will automatically lead to the disintegration of the united Georgian nation into easily manipulated individuals, which will inevitably end with the liquidation of the nation’s historical-cultural unity.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aimed at portraying the West and the Western values as pernicious, immoral, degenerate and a threat to traditional values. The narrative about “threatened values”, one of the most common pro-Kremlin narratives, suggests that those who are committed to traditional values are now threatened by those who oppose them and instead seek to establish a morally bankrupt dystopia.

These narratives aim at portraying the West as depraved and endangering societies by imposing the same beliefs on other countries. It undermines progressive Western attitudes about a variety of normative issues, including the rights of women, ethnic and religious minorities, and LGBTQ groups, among others.

Read similar cases claiming that Western societies are decadent, worship money and are devoted to the obsessive search for pleasure, that the West seeks to degrade and discredit traditional values, the Vatican lobbies for sodomy, that Belgium is to prosecute the promotion of traditional family values, Europe legalises and declares paedophilia as a norm, Germany and the EU want to legalise paedophilia, or Incest is being legalised in Europe, and The West is lobbying for perversion.

Disinfo: The EU must stop suffocating Donbas residents

The EU considers defending human rights one of its main goals worldwide, but it essentially became compliant in suffocating the residents of Donbas. They decided not to recognise the Russian passports issued to locals for humanitarian reasons, as they did with Crimea.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the European Union's role in Ukraine.

The European Union is in fact providing support for the most vulnerable people affected by the ongoing hostilities. In April 2020, Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic announced EUR 13 million to support conflict affected population. In October 2020, the EU allocated a further EUR 10 million to "support the most vulnerable people in eastern Ukraine ahead of the upcoming winter and in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic."

Disinfo: Genocide invented by Ukraine is "hype, which has no plot"

Ukraine is stubbornly trying to create “hype” on this topic [Holodomor], not noticing that there is no plot for this.

Natural factors played a huge role. In 1932, the El Niño climatic cycle ended and famine was raging throughout the northern hemisphere due to drought and crop failure.

The famine of 1932-33 was not ethnically directed against the Ukrainians.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Holodomor in Ukraine.

In fact, the Holodomor was not caused by a poor harvest. It was caused by the directed actions of the Soviet authorities - the destruction by famine - against the Ukrainian countryside. In 1932, no critical weather conditions were recorded that could lead to grain shortages and the deaths of more than 7 million people. This year, compared to 1931, less grain was actually harvested (12.8 million tons against 17.7 million tons in 1931). The reason for lower yields was the ill-considered policy of grain procurement: in the villages, there was not enough grain to sow the fields, it was increasingly taken out of the USSR, leaving nothing for sowing. But even that number would be enough to avoid famine if the policy of genocide were not directed.

Disinfo: In Ukraine, it will be forbidden to communicate in Russian from January 2021

From January 16, 2021 it will be necessary to use the state language when ordering a cup of coffee, buying medicine. The so-called “language ombudsman” Taras Kremin underscoredthat from January 16, 2021, the service sector should switch exclusively to the Ukrainian language.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narrative about the alleged discrimination of Ukraine's Russian-speaking minority and the country's ubiquitous Russophobia.

This is one in a series of news stories with false and manipulative headlines. The Russian language will not be banned in Ukraine. In Ukraine, service workers must start a conversation in Ukrainian from January 16, 2021, but they can change the language of communication at the request of the client. This is a quote taken out of context by the Commissioner for the Protection of the State Language Taras Kremlin. He recalled that "at the request of the client, his/her personal service can be carried out in another language."
