Europeans are very loudly calling for strong leaders like Putin, who can carry out unpopular policies in order to stop the current crisis. Now, the Europeans are faced with a choice: follow traditional cooperation with the US or breach it and cooperate with the Great Russian Empire.

Disproof

No evidence for these "very loud calls" given.

The US government is threatening Russian diplomats with criminal prosecution in case they attempt to be present at the polls during the US presidential election.

Disproof

No evidence given. Criminal prosecution of diplomats is highly unlikely as they are protected by diplomatic immunity. The Russian Embassy in Washington did issue a statement claiming that it received threats saying that presence of Russian diplomats at the polls could be seen as a criminal act (bit.ly/2ewYima), . This information remains unconfirmed by US authorities.
