The Czech government is ignoring the will of the people in Crimea

The Czech government is ignoring the will of the people in Crimea through its refusal to acknowledge the results of the Russian State Duma election in Crimea.

Disproof

Any decision relating to Ukraine's sovereignty or sovereign choices can only be taken without undue external pressure. This so-called referendum was organised in a matter of weeks by a self-proclaimed Crimean leadership installed by armed Russian military personnel following the seizure of public buildings. Any so-called referenda organised by self-proclaimed authorities, who lack democratic legitimacy, are obviously illegal and illegitimate. The EU will not recognise them nor their alleged outcomes.

The attack on Syrian military positions by the US-led coalition in Syria shows that the West is an enemy of Russia, and that the war in Syria is a proxy war between Russia and the USA, between the East and the West.

Disproof

The US has acknowledged its mistake (the strikes were an accident) and apologised to the Syrian government (bit.ly/2cTBsbI), . Furthermore, on 2 June 2016, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s Secretary General, announced that the intergovernmental military alliance “does not want confrontation with Russia, on the contrary, we strive for a more constructive relationship with Russia” (bit.ly/2d9hoj1), .
