Kyiv is against the return of its (captured) soldiers from LDNR. The telegram channel “Klymenko Time” published on Thursday 21 January information that Kyiv is against the return of Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers to Viktor Medvedchuk.
The United States not only ignored the refugee conference held in Damascus at the initiative of Russia but also called on other countries to boycott it. This could contribute, in one way or another, to a new wave of international terrorism.
A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming the West has been worsening the humanitarian situation in Syria.
No official data or evidence backs the claim that the US lack of participation in the conference is in any way linked to the rise of global terrorism.
The reason the US and other Western countries decided not to attend the conference is because it was deemed premature, since conditions inside Syria at present do not lend themselves to the promotion of large-scale voluntary return, in conditions of safety and dignity in line with international law. This situation has been confirmed by independent media reporting and UN organisations.
For example, UNHCR states that the conditions for a safe, voluntary and dignified return, as per international law, are not currently met. Eight years after the outbreak of the conflict, the situation in Syria is still critical, with millions of Syrians displaced and in need of protection and humanitarian assistance. The potential for violence remains high. The creation of the Constitutional Committee is a positive step but much remains to be done towards a sustainable resolution of the conflict.
This disinformation message appeared in the same article as the claim that the United States has blocked humanitarian aid to Syria.
