Putin did not approve a law under which rape victims would have the right to kill the perpetrator
Contrary to the typical media claims circulating when a case of rape or other sexual violence comes to light, Russian President Vladimir Putin did not sign a law that would legally allow rape victims to kill the perpetrator.
In this instance, an article originally published by "Preduzetnica" media outlet claimed that, "Russian women will now be free to kill a man who tries to rape them, and that will automatically be treated as a self-defense, and that woman will not be criminally liable for that act."
Quite the contrary, Russian activists believe that the law that Putin signed in 2017 on the decriminalization of some forms of domestic violence has actually contributed to the increase in violence against women.
RTRS and “Antimigrant” website term migrants as “terrorists” - again
Radio Television of Republika Srpska (RTRS) and some pro-SNSD websites again cited unsubstantiated "security experts" making unfounded claims that migrants are terrorists and members of ISIS.
The State Investigation and Protection Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina refuted allegations that there are members of Al Qaeda and ISIL among migrants, emphasizing that they have identified no individuals in contact with terrorist organizations among the foreign citizens on the territory of BiH.
QAnon Theories: There is no “adrenochrome children’s farm” under Capitol Hill
The "Istinom protiv laži" (Truth Against Lies) website is perhaps the biggest promoter of conspiracy theories related to the QAnon movement in the Western Balkans.
The website promoted allegations of children being tortured in the tunnels of Capitol Hill for the production of adrenochrome. Conspiracy theorists maintain that this is a substance that, once allegedly obtained from children’s blood, is used for adult physical rejuvenation.
Milorad Dodik's lobbyist Steven Meyer described as "former CIA chief"
Numerous ultranationalist media recently reported on the "Republika Srpska pred novim izazovima” (Republika Srpska Facing New Challenges) Forum held in Belgrade in February 2021. One of the speakers was Steven Meyer.
Steven Meyer is a RS lobbyist in Washington DC. To bolster his credibility in the region numerous media outlets in the region have promoted him with interviews and quotes, putting fictitious titles next to his name. Citations of Meyer are made without mentioning his connection to the Bosnia’s Republika Srpska entity’s lobbying efforts.
Among various fictious attributions, these outlets at times identify him as former CIA chief, or CIA chief for the Balkans. However, his biography states that he was only an analyst and manager in CIA before leaving the agency in 2011.
