Summary

The 700 tanks in the Donbas area could come from three sources: spoils of war captured from the Ukrainian military, sold illegally by Ukrainian commanders or they could have simply been present on the seized territory.

Disproof

There is evidence that Russia has supplied and continues to supply the self-proclaimed separatist republics in Ukraine with military equipment. NATO published satellite photos showing Russian combat troops with sophisticated heavy weaponry inside Ukraine. There are also documents showing that when separatists seized Eastern Ukraine, only 25 T-64 tanks remained in the region. Further debunking at Stopfake bit.ly/2mNVdSU,

USA provided Islamic state with weapons

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.
