The Americans acknowledged that the Russian Su-57 fighter jet is superior to the American F-35

Summary

The Americans acknowledged that the Russian Su-57 fighter jet is superior to the American F-35.

Disproof

The claim about the Su-57 fighter was made in one American journal. The journal in question, Military Watch, is hardly ever quoted anywhere but in Russia.

According to the Insider, there is no substantial background information about who owns and runs Military Watch. The journal's editor seems to have an author’s profile, which is now empty, on the strongly Kremlin-loyal English language outlet Russia Insidereuvsdisinfo.eu/antisemitism-and-pro-kremlin-propaganda/,

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.

Photo: Kosovan and Albanian migrants are “storming” the EU borders from Serbia

Photo: Kosovan and Albanian migrants are “storming” the EU borders from Serbia.

Disproof

The photo is from February 2016. It was taken at the border of FYROM and Greece and shows refugees, mainly from Syria, and migrants. Outlets such as The New York Times and Kathimerini used it back then.

The photo has served disinforming purposes on various occasions. On January 8, 2018 it depicted “200 migrants storming the Morocco-Spain border”, according to stormfront.org.

There is no “Ukraine”, only illegal regime in the Kyiv territory

There is no country “Ukraine”. There is only illegal regime in the Kyiv territory.

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.

As witnessed by the democratic Early Parliament elections held on 26 October 2014, Ukraine is governed by a democratically elected Parliament. The OSCE characterized the elections as “an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments”, offering voters “real choice” and “a general respect for fundamental freedoms”. According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook increasing attempts to derail the process. There was no possibility also to carry out the elections in the Crimean Peninsula annexed by Russia the same year http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true
