Summary

Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Riyadh appreciated Russia’s stance on Syria.

Disproof

Adel al-Jubeir stated just the opposite: "I would like to say that we disagree with the position of Russia on the issue of members of the delegation at the Syrian talks. We believe that the only legitimate representative of the Syrian people at the talks should be the Riyadh Group," said Jubeir, referring to the Saudi-based opposition, called the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) (bit.ly/1sSup6n), .

The large-scale amassing of military power on NATO’s new Eastern Front is not justified as the threat of ongoing “Russian aggression” is merely a product of imagination.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. NATO's decision to increase its military presence in the eastern part of the alliance is a response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. The UN GA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states (bit.ly/1RZGnjo), .
