FAKE NEWS: Forțe oculte occidentale le vor lua copiii familiilor de români

Copiii ar putea deveni proprietatea unor entităţi private, a căror existenţă a fost legiferată pe ascuns de către Parlament, la comanda forţelor oculte care doresc distrugerea poporului român. Naraţiunea a fost lansată de senatoarea independentă Diana Ivanovici Şoşoacă, în cadrul unui dialog cu Luis Lazarus, şi are ca punct de plecare dezbaterea inițiată de punere în aplicare a legii privind evidenţa persoanelor şi actele de identitate ale cetăţenilor români.

FAKE NEWS: The West and Romania will go to war on the side of Ukraine

FAKE NEWS: The West and Romania will go to war on the side of Ukraine

A multinational coalition other than NATO will go to war on the side of Ukraine, thus confirming that Moscow is, in fact, fighting the West, which is perpetuating the fratricidal Russian-Ukrainian conflict in order to achieve global economic supremacy. The false narrative was launched by journalist Ion Cristoiu. In reality, Cristoiu interprets facts and statements in a personal note, without providing any evidence to support his claims.

FAKE NEWS: European Union products will contain cricket flour, which is allergenic and leads to anaphylactic shock

FAKE NEWS: European Union products will contain cricket flour, which is allergenic and leads to anaphylactic shock

The EU imposes the use of cricket flour, which can even kill some consumers, according to fake news circulated in Romania. This resumes the false narrative that the EU will force its citizens to eat insects. In reality, Brussels has only approved the entry of a new cricket flour producer on the EU market, but the use of its products is not mandatory. Similarly, the purchase of products containing insect-based ingredients remains a consumer’s personal choice.

FAKE NEWS: Eco-dictatorship will push humanity towards a feudal social system, with people “tied to the land and totally dependent on a master”.

FAKE NEWS: Eco-dictatorship will push humanity towards a feudal social system, with people “tied to the land and totally dependent on a master”.

In the name of combating climate change, people will be forbidden to move freely, and in Oxford the implementation of this system has already begun, according to a false narrative that also appeared in Romania. This narrative, just like others, pertains to climate denialism and conspiracy theories according to which global warming is an invention intended to justify the establishment of a so-called eco-dictatorship.

DISINFORMATION: Just like Andrei Marga, Henry Kissinger claims that Ukraine must cede territories to Russia in exchange for peace

DISINFORMATION: Just like Andrei Marga, Henry Kissinger claims that Ukraine must cede territories to Russia in exchange for peace

A subjective interpretation of an editorial signed by the renowned American diplomat Henry Kissinger, recalling the narrative line promoted by Vladimir Putin prior to the start of the aggression against Ukraine, aims to justify the speech of the former Romanian Foreign Minister Andrei Marga, from mid-September, in which he says that Ukraine must cede territories to Russia, Romania, Hungary and Poland in order to obtain peace in the war with Russia. In reality, Kissinger detailed a diplomatic scenario imagined by him in spring, meant to provide a solution to reach peace following the Russian invasion of Ukraine

DISINFORMATION: Sanctions do not affect Russia, but will cause a severe economic crisis in the West

DISINFORMATION: Sanctions do not affect Russia, but will cause a severe economic crisis in the West

The economic sanctions imposed on Moscow, including the capping of oil prices, do not affect the Russian economy but cause a major economic crisis in the West, according to a false narrative spread in Romania. In fact, sanctions are being felt in Russia on a wider scale, and even though economic growth in the western world has slowed down a bit, it has not stopped.

Ukrainian refugees, between the propaganda that made them fear Romania and the one that targeted them

Ukrainian refugees, between the propaganda that made them fear Romania and the one that targeted them

Millions of Ukrainians headed to Romania when Russia attacked their country. Instead of a land of poor and hostile bandits, as the propaganda had described it, they found the help and shelter they needed - even if there were also marginal voices spreading, as everywhere in Europe, disinformation about refugees. Some of them stayed, others moved on. Veridica has the stories of some of them, from the first days of the war until now.
