The Russian experts have provided the Netherlands with key evidence of Russia’s innocence and Ukraine’s involvement in the tragedy, but the investigation has not taken them into account. Only now, 5 years after the tragedy and in a hopeless situation, the Dutch parliament began to doubt the official version.
US media reports that the Obama administration had a plan to occupy the Black Sea Fleet base in Crimea and use the peninsula’s strategic location to take control over the Black Sea, Turkey and Iran. After ousting Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych, the US intended to move into Crimea and deploy nuclear weapons at the Sevastopol base in order to destroy Russia.
The referendum, which saw a practically unanimous Crimea citizens’ vote to join Russia, prevented the US from realising these plans.
Recurring disinformation narrative of the US as a highly aggressive and conspirating actor, Ukraine being a puppet of the US, US backing the "coup" in Ukraine, and Crimea's peaceful and voluntary return to Russia. Conspiracy theory with no evidence provided for any of the claims.
Fact checkers organisations label the source cited source - American Herald Tribune - as a conspiracy website which offers a mixture of unrelated events (such as the fact that USAID and Gallup conducted public opinion polls in Crimea in 2013 and 2014) and complete fabrications (the war in Ukraine started before 2014, as a "subterranean war by Washington to take over Ukraine" and similar) as "proof" of alleged nefarious plans of the US.
