Federica Mogherini and Donald Tusk spread disinformation on Syria

EU top diplomat Federica Mogherini and European Council President Donald Tusk are spreading disinformation on the situation concerning humanitarian aid to Syria. Russia has been providing humanitarian aid to Aleppo for years and also urging the UN to solve the situation for the civilian population but someone is discouraging the UN from acting.

Disproof

Actually, Russia has twice vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions, in October and December, that demanded an immediate end to air strikes and military flights over Syria's Aleppo city and called for a truce and humanitarian aid access throughout Syria. The EU through Federica Mogherini is working with the UN to call on the Russian and Syrian authorities to protect civilians so that the UN can complete the delivery of humanitarian aid.

On December 19, the UNSC (including Russia) has passed a resolution sending observers to Aleppo:

No one has yet seen the humanitarian aid EU is providing Syria

No one has yet seen the humanitarian aid the European Union is providing in Syria.

Disproof

The EU is the leading donor in the international response to the Syrian crisis, with over €8.9 billion from the EU and Member States collectively allocated in humanitarian, stabilisation and development assistance since the start of the conflict . Furthermore, Russia has twice vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions, in October and December, that demanded an immediate end to air strikes and military flights over Syria's Aleppo city and called for a truce and humanitarian aid access throughout Syria

Western values means having no moral

Western values means having no moral. Moral dignity should not exist according to these values, only “human rights” are important. For example, you can walk naked in the street and this will be your right. Somebody can marry a cat or a dog and this will be his/her right.

Disproof

A pro-Kremlin attempt to forward a narrative about the decaying values of the Western society. More about human rights here.
