Summary

According to international law there is no problem of recognizing Crimea as a part of Russia. What is missing is the political will. It is all a long-term policy of the USA to withhold Russia.

Disproof

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution No. 68/262 adopted on 27 March 2014, supported by 100 states clearly states that Russia's actions in the peninsula as well as the referendum held in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea violate international law (bit.ly/1RZGnjo), .

Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” 

Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” which is demonstrated through her alleged quote: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president we will attack Iran and we could obliterate all Iranians.” She put Victoria Nuland in the ministry of foreign affairs so that she could organize the US coup in Ukraine.

Disproof

Hillary Clinton said this in 2009 as a response to a question how she would handle Iran if it used nuclear weapons against Israel.

The claim about the organised coup in Ukraine is a conspiracy theory without evidence and a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative.

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified. The US opinion poll agencies are ready to create numbers on demand, just like in case of Brexit where the opinion polls agencies were bribed in favour of supporters of remaining in the EU.

Disproof

Polling agencies’ surveys‘ results over the Brexit referendum have not shown clear support to either exit or remain. In June there were 32 surveys, of which 16 showed a lead for exit and 15 showed a lead for remain. See here for more information.

No evidence to supports the other claims.

Vladimir Zhirinovsky said that in Estonia, from September 1, nothing will be taught in school in Russian language, leaving an impression that teaching in Russian in Estonia will be banned.

Disproof

All students who complete a Russian-language basic school and choose to go on to secondary school will receive 60% of their teaching in Estonian and 40% in Russian: bit.ly/2cStyhU,
