Summary

Russia is still a friendly, sovereign country that respects international law.

Disproof

Russia's actions in Ukraine are a clear violation of international law. Article 2, paragraph 4 of the UN Charter declares without ambiguity that "all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations" bit.ly/1rbGaE3, . UNGA Resolution 68/262 also affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and underscored the invalidity of the 2014 Crimean referendum bit.ly/1RZGnjo, .

USA provided Islamic state with weapons. // Claims that Flynn secretly negotiated with the Russians are fabricated. // There was nothing like annexation of Crimea, but peaceful referendum.

Disproof

No evidence given // Even Mr. Flynn already admits that he had negotiated with Russians bbc.in/2kwnomR, // Any decision relating to Ukraine's sovereignty or sovereign choices can only be taken without undue external pressure. This so-called referendum was organised in a matter of weeks by a self-proclaimed Crimean leadership lacking democratic legitimacy and installed by armed Russian military personnel following the seizure of public buildings. The EU does not recognise it.

Russia has no plans for aggression against Ukraine, so any disputes on this topic are an ‘informational hypnosis’.

Disproof

Easily disproven by the fact that Russia has been on Ukranian territory since 2014. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
