Russia’s humanitarian convoys to Donbas are inspected by customs

Summary

Russia’s 82nd humanitarian convoy delivers 700+ tonnes of supplies to the people of Donetsk and Luhansk, including food packages for children, medical equipment and first aid kits. All cargo underwent thorough customs inspection.

Disproof

These convoys cross from Russian territory into Ukrainian territory controlled by Russia. They may be inspected by the Russian Customs Service or Russia-backed separatists, but they are not inspected by the Customs Service of Ukraine, the country they are actually crossing into. The convoys go to the same forces Russia is supporting militarily and logistically. Further debunking by Polygraph.

White Helmets have started filming their ‘CW usage evidence”, support the terrorists

White Helmets have started filming their ‘CW usage evidence’, this time in Aleppo province. Containers with poison gas, most likely chlorine, delivered to the area by terrorist groups they support.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on the White Helmets to distract the audience from Syrian government's use of chemical weapons. Another round of disinformation about the White Helmets preparing a staged chemical attack in Syria started spreading on August 25 by the Russian Ministry of Defence; see latest cases on White Helmets: https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=white+helmets&disinfo_issue=&date=

The photo comes from a video of White Helmet volunteers who were participating in the “Mannequin Challenge,” a viral internet video trend from 2016, in an attempt call attention to the situation in Syria. The organization later apologized for participating in the trend.

Megyn Kelly’s Show Taken Off Air Because of Russians’ Love for Her

The program of Megyn Kelly, our favorite American TV anchor, is being taken off the air. She was fired on a completely contrived pretext — for something she did not say about the color of Halloween masks. Something like ‘if a black person can wear a white mask, why then can’t a white person wear a black mask?’ Or, maybe the opposite. However, it doesn’t matter. I am sure that the true reason is our love for her.

Disproof

NBC said the anchor would no longer host the “Megyn Kelly Today” after she made racially insensitive comments during the October 25 edition of her show.

While Kelly's remarks caused outrage, neither her critics nor NBC mentioned her stance toward Russia. Kelly has since apologized for the racially-tinged comments. Further debunking by the Polygraph.
