Czech media “lie” when they say that Russian satellite images do not prove that Turkey bought oil from the Islamic State. In Paris, there was a police and rescuers exercise right before the terrorist attacks, that simulated the exact same kind of attack. Some chosen people were even warned about.

Disproof

Doubts about the satellite images as proofs are in place: www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/the-isis-oil-trade-from-the-ground-up,

The source article of the “chosen ones, that were warned”, is an Israeli journalist saying that some people in a Jewish community were warned about a possibility of an attack in the last few months, with no specific information or details.

The Charter of Paris for a New Europe was established on the foundation of the Helsinki Accords, and was further amended in the 1999 Charter for European Security. Together, these documents form the agreed basis for the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe of which Russia (and the former USSR) has become a member: www.osce.org/mc/39516,
