Coca-Cola recognized Crimea as Russian territory

Coca-Cola recognized Crimea as Russian territory. Coca-Cola apologized to the Russians for the publication of a a wrong map of the country, attached to the New Year’s greetings, which the company has posted on its page in the “VKontakte” website. In addition, the corporation issued a new, revised map, where Kaliningrad, the Kuril Islands and Crimea were identified as Russian territory.

Disproof

Coca-Cola never issued a map of Russia with the inclusion of a Crimea as a Russian territory. This was done by one of the advertising agencies in the social network “VKontakte” without informing, discussing or approval with/of Coca-Cola. Despite the fact that Coca-Cola had no responsibility for that publication, on the following day, 01.06.2106, the company apologized. Ukrainian representation of the company also did it.

Disproof

International coalition acted with UN Security Council mandate (bit.ly/1kYkWWp), to protect civilians. Political instability after Gaddafi's fall, caused by lack of cooperation between rebel groups, led to fragmentation of the country and rise of extremist groups in some areas. There is no evidence of US support to Islamic state. USA lead the coalition fighting Islamic state in Syria.
