Disinfo: Former President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, urged Russia to help liberate his country from the US occupation

Summary

The former Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, made his contribution at the meeting of the Valdai Discussion club in Sochi. He asked Russia and Vladimir Putin, who was present personally, to help him to liberate Afghanistan from US occupation.

Disproof

The alleged request for Russia to help Afghanistan to free itself from US occupation did not occur. Hamid Karzai, in his speech at the Valdai Discussion Club, did criticize US policy in Afghanistan and appealed to the United States to reflect on the current situation and to try to figure out how to solve their current ineffective Afghanistan policy.

Hamid Karzai (according to the Kremlin webpage): "The way forward is this: the United States of America in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage in a new contact with Afghan people. Two: the United States in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage with our neighbours and big powers of the world – that means our neighbours, that means China, that means Russia, that means India – on a clear, transparent platform of objectives. And with this in mind, the international community must support the Afghan mechanism for the resolution of the problems that we have."

Ukrainian secret service destroyed MH17 evidence

Secret documents show that just three days after the MH17 tragedy, the Ukrainian secret service conducted a special operation to wipe out all the evidence about the tragedy. They worked with the witnesses, demolished documents and relocated the military troops to other positions. President Poroshenko and his generals are guilty for shooting down the flight MH17, and the Ukraine Air Force participated in it.

Disproof

Reccuring MH17-related disinformation.

Joint Investigative Team (JIT) has concluded that flight MH17 was shot down on 17 July 2014 by a missile of the 9M38 series, launched by a BUK-TELAR, from farmland in the vicinity of Pervomaiskiy (or: Pervomaiskyi). At that time, the area was controlled by pro-Russian fighters. The BUK-TELAR was brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently, after having shot down flight MH-17, was taken back to the Russian Federation.

Ukraine asked to keep MH-17 tragedy in secret

The Dutch Council of the State allowed not to make public the details of the MH-17 tragedy for two reasons. 1. The investigators have no hard facts and they are afraid that their conclusions will be disproved. 2. Ukrainian side has asked to keep it in secret because most probably Ukraine is guilty for the tragedy.

Disproof

Reccuring MH17-related disinformation. According to the Council of State, it is necessary that the information remains confidential, as it is likely that disclosure thereof could jeopardize the proper functioning of the committee. The Council found this more important than the interest of disclosure. "The interest of disclosure does not outweigh the interest protected by the refusal, such as the relations of the Netherlands with other states and international organizations, respect for the privacy of the parties involved and the protection of personal policy views", the Council ruled.
