Shabby lies: Ukraine and NATO against Russia and China

A shabby narrative that even Putin doesn’t use anymore is persistently repeated about NATO wanting to control Ukraine so that it can install hypersonic missiles that could hit Moscow within 4-5 minutes leaving it incapacitated to respond promptly. That justifies the Russian aggression in Ukraine, but it makes no sense – several of Russia’s neighbors are already NATO members,...

Unbecoming Post Calls for Violence and Satanizes EU and NATO

This manipulative post is spreading the well-known insulting, indecent propaganda narrative satanizing NATO and the EU. Contrary to the claim made in the post, NATO is not connected with a religious army, but the Alliance enrolls troops regardless of their religious background. The values advocated by the EU have nothing to do with legalization of pedophilia. Quite the opposite,...

Moscow doesn’t like the Prespa apples and it finds Ecuadorian bananas tastier than the Indian

If the pressure from Russia was not that obvious in the Macedonian case with the banned imports of apples from Prespa, the example of Ecuador was pretty straightforward. By skillfully manipulating the business sector, the pressure put on the Ecuadorian leadership hit success and it changed its mind on the US offer to exchange the old Soviet weaponry and...

EU’s financial assistance for Ukraine does not mean that Europe is at war with Russia

The EU has never called for a war with Russia but has helped Ukraine to preserve its territorial integrity and democratic society. Europe condemns Russian aggression and appeals for it to stop. The claim that Macedonian citizens should prepare for mobilization is just arbitrary. So far, no one has announced any kind of mobilization. This speculation has been circulated...

NMacedonia’s FM Osmani: Russia destabilizes the Western Balkans with visible steps

Bujar Osmani, the current Chairman of the OSCE and Minister of Foreign Affairs of North Macedonia, said today that the Russian Federation is a factor of destabilization in the Western Balkans region. Unlike the US and EU support for N.Macedonia and the entire region, Russia does not play the identical role in the Western Balkans, he said. “The Russian Federation...

It is not true that Russia has defeated Ukraine, nor is it at war with the EU and NATO

The post is spreading disinformation that the Russian military actions on the territory of Ukraine, which took place on 24 February completely unprovoked, are over and that, allegedly, Russia was the winner. The military invasion and the Ukrainian defense, however, are still ongoing and nothing appears to signal that they will end soon. In addition, the post provides disinformation...

Manipulation: NATO Does Not Evacuate Civilians from Israel

NATO is not involved in the evacuation of citizens of three member states, including citizens of North Macedonia. That obligation was taken over by each of the governments separately. The “Air Serbia” flight evacuating Macedonian citizens from Israel was paid from the Budget of North Macedonia, and many officers from the Macedonian diplomatic-consular representations in Tel Aviv were involved...

No Bundeswehr troops in Ukraine, nor German tank crews

Photo: Screenshot of part of the post On Sunday, the 24th of September, the German Ministry of Defense denied the information published by Russian state media that, allegedly, a German Leopard tank was destroyed along with the Bundeswehr crew in the military zone in Ukraine. Apart from that, it is general knowledge that Western countries are careful about sending their...

The claim that Russia is at war with the “Anti-religious” Western civilization is a myth

Photo: part of the post with disinformation One cannot claim – as the post does – that the anti-religious civilization, or the West, is fighting against Russia. Russia wants to impose itself as the main global defender of the traditional and religious, which could be seen from Putin’s speech, two days before the anniversary of Russian aggression. Once again, he...

The Ministry of Defense of North Macedonia is not hiring soldiers to send to Ukraine

Bearing in mind that NATO is not at war with Russia and is not sending soldiers to the front in Ukraine, as well as that the Army of the Republic of North Macedonia participates only in NATO and EU missions, one cannot claim that the MoD is hiring soldiers to fulfill Zelenskyy’s wishes i.e., to send them fighting in...

The war or peace decision on Ukraine was not in the hands of NATO or America

The fact that Putin sent a request for NATO not to expand – which was rejected – and such a draft agreement was never signed by NATO, does not shift the military responsibility onto NATO. Stoltenberg, unlike the contents of the post, does not recognize the fact that NATO could have prevented the war provided it put an end...

NATO is not at war with Russia, the Alliance is only providing support to Ukraine

Russia is not at war with NATO, hence it cannot be concluded that Russia defeated NATO. NATO condemns Russia’s brutal and unprovoked military aggression in Ukraine, which is an independent and democratic country and a close NATO partner. NATO is not sending weapons directly to Ukraine, but that is done by the member-states individually and that is stated on...

QAnon Propaganda for Satanizing NATO and EU

Two theses in this post – the one on ”the satanic NATO” and that on “the pedophile EU” – look too much alike to the disinformation propaganda spread by the Kremlin about the West, in the attempt to justify Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine. There were numerous attempts in the past by these conspiracy groups, which promote the combined...

Germany offers NATO base for Baltic Sea headquarters

Germany has offered NATO the capability to operate naval forces from a regional maritime headquarters on the Baltic Sea, Vice Admiral Jan Christian Kaack said on Sunday, writes german news agency DPA. Germany has offered NATO the capability to operate naval forces from a regional maritime headquarters on the Baltic Sea, Vice Admiral Jan Christian Kaack said on Sunday. Kaack noted...

Manipulations about Rama’s statement – Bulgaria will not attack North Macedonia

The fact-checked post, with its fuzzy text and the accompanying photos, purposefully manipulates the statement of the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, with the aim of creating a picture of some kind of military threat to North Macedonia from Bulgaria. Rama did not foresee such a thing happening but used an ironic joke to compare EU integration of the...

America didn’t promise Russia that NATO would not enlarge

There is no treaty signed by the US, Europe, and Russia specifying that NATO will not enlarge. The idea of NATO expansion beyond Germany was not on the agenda in 1989, because the Warsaw Pact still existed. Mikhail Gorbachev confirmed it in an interview in 2014, writes Truthmeter.mk. Under the content-sharing agreement between Truthmeter.mk and Meta.mk, we republish the text...

The claim that depleted uranium ammunition is used in Krivolak is sheer disinformation

Krivolak, June 2019, from the drill “Decisive Strike 19”. Photo: mod.gov.mk   The claim that military drills with depleted uranium ammunition – which is carcinogenic – are taking place in the Krivolak military training range has not been confirmed and is not substantiated. This is an intentional speculation, aiming to project a conspiracy theory thereby creating public apprehension. The Ministry of...

NATO is not sending weapons directly to Ukraine, and it has already sent aid to Slovenia for the floods

Photo: nato.int Unlike the claim in the post, NATO is not sending weapons directly to Ukraine. NATO member-states individually are sending weapons and aid, together with other countries that are not NATO members, and that is clearly stressed on NATO’s website by Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg. It is not true either that NATO has not sent aid to Slovenia after it...

Putin is not a small child whо can be “lured” into attacking Ukraine

Opposed to the claims in the post we are fact-checking, Putin is the one who made a decision – completely unprovoked – to attack the territorial integrity of a sovereign country. In addition, Washington is constantly stressing that Russia can stop the war in Ukraine as soon as tomorrow, provided it withdraws from the territory of Ukraine. This means...

Manipulative Facebook post justifying Russian invasion in Ukraine at all costs

The entire post is loaded with Russian narratives and manipulations aiming to spread propaganda and justify the Russian military aggression in Ukraine. Ukrainians are not brainwashed, as the post claims, and they are trying to defend their country from Russia. Russia is the one that initiated the war, while the Western countries are just helping Ukraine to protect itself...
