Former Obama advisor admits that the US helped the onset of terrorism in Syria

In an interview for The Intercept, Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications for U.S. President Barack Obama, basically admitted that the US contributed to strengthening terrorists in Syria.

Disproof

Recurring narrative that the US aids terrorists in Syria euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77105&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77187&date=, The title of the article in question is manipulative. In reality, Ben Rhodes does not admit that the US helped the onset of terrorism in Syria - he negates the suggestive question of the journalist and comments on the absurdity of supporting part of the opposition while considering the other part of the opposition to be terrorists, saying that "there was a slight absurdity in the fact that we were debating options to provide military support to the opposition at the same time that we were deciding to designate al-Nusra, a big chunk of that opposition, as a terrorist organization. So there was kind of a schizophrenia that’s inherent in a lot of U.S. foreign policy that came to a head in Syria".

Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference

The US has organised a junta in Ukraine. [—] Maidan was a US-organised coup and Ukraine is a victim of US aggression and interference in its internal policies. Ukraine is not a sovereign country any more.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine's statehood and Ukrainian nation. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B0%5D=77158&date=&offset=10 Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT. The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and continues to condemn this violation of international law, and that Russia’s illegal actions remain a direct challenge to international security, with grave implications for the international legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all States.

NATO is an aggressive and criminal organisation with homosexual army

NATO is an aggressive, criminal, military and political organisation. But its army is homosexual. We [Russians] feel some kind of disgust about them, not fear.
