Summary of Disinformation

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg accused Russia of dividing the Alliance and resorting to illegal actions in the Middle East. At the same time Russia is the only country “fighting terrorists in Syria on a legitimate basis.”

Disproof

Ukraina.ru manipulates Stoltenberg’s actual words. During his conversation with Christiane Amanpour he said that "Russia is trying to divide the NATO alliance" [there is no actual split among NATO members]. Stoltenberg did not assess the legitimacy or legality of Russia’s actions in Syria. See bit.ly/1RfHHOs, .
