The United States is considering delivering deadly weapons to Ukraine. They want the conflict to escalate.

According to a special US ambassador to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, the US wants to deliver deadly weapons to Ukraine. This means that the US is interested in escalating the conflict in Ukraine because it allows them to get closer to the Russian-Ukrainian border. America again shows its aggressive policy and the essence of its relationship to the south-east of Ukraine.

Disproof

The US Special Envoy to Ukraine described the conflict in the southeast of Ukraine as "a hot war". According to his observation, the Ukrainian government forces needed help with the challenges to better defend themselves against separatist attacks. "Defensive weapons, those that would allow Ukraine to defend itself, and take out tanks for example, would actually help." He stressed, however, that no such decision has been made.

The US Government Pressured Twitter to Ban Sputnik and RT Ads

The network Twitter demonstratively banned the accounts of RT and Sputnik from advertising. The decision can be only be explained by pressure from the [U.S.] government and intelligence services.

Disproof

While the findings of the intelligence community partially influenced Twitter’s decision, no evidence of any pressure from the government has emerged, and Twitter is a private company in an industry that has taken the public stance of resisting government pressures. Twitter’s statement says: "Early this year, the U.S. intelligence community named RT and Sputnik as implementing state-sponsored Russian efforts to interfere with and disrupt the 2016 Presidential election, which is not something we want on Twitter. This decision is restricted to these two entities based our internal investigation of their behavior as well as their inclusion in the January 2017 DNI report." Further debuking: Polygraph.info
