Summary

The Council of Europe decision declares Abkhazia’s and South Ossetia’s fictitious attachment to Georgia, and makes an effort to place on Russia the responsibility for Georgia’s conflict-ridden relations with these republics, which never belonged to Georgia.

Disproof

The Council of Europe reiterates its support for Georgia in this document bit.ly/2qI5BAH, . Abkhazia and South Ossetia are historically integral parts of Georgia, and also Russia has recognized them as parts of Georgia in multiple international agreements, including numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions dating back to 1993. The narrative that they never belonged to Georgia is seemingly a new one. bit.ly/2pNQ39I,

The US is trying to take control of Russian sea ports.

Disproof

No evidence given. On May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed revised legislation outlining the American response to new threats posed by North Korea’s nuclear aspirations. H.R.1644, the Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act, sets out enhanced measures for identifying and inspecting foreign seaports and airports that “knowingly” violate the UN Security Council resolution on North Korea. These include two ports in China, eleven in Iran, four in Syria and three in Russia. The bill would sanction ports and port operators that fail to comply with UN Security Council resolutions. bit.ly/2rhAdpP,
