Integritatea teritorială a României este amenințată și doar o apropiere de Moscova ar putea împiedica pierderea Transilvaniei, potrivit unei narațiuni false promovate de senatoarea independentă Diana Șoșoacă.

Subiectul a fost amplificat prin speculații și narațiuni false care devin evidente prin simpla consultare a istoricului „problemei Bîstroe” sau dacă sunt întrebați specialiștii, care sunt gata să explice cât de inepte sunt unele din ideile apărute în spațiul public – de exemplu cea cu dispariția Deltei. Nu este însă prima oară, de la începutul războiului din Ucraina, când în România e lansată o campanie menită să pună într-o lumină nefavorabilă țara vecină și să submineze sprijinul pentru aceasta.

Thousands of Polish and Romanian servicemen are fighting against Russia wearing the Ukrainian military uniform, according to a former American intelligence officer, quoted by activenews.ro.

The ex-officer in question, Scott Ritter, is known for spreading fake news and was handed a prison sentence for corruption of minors.
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.
