There is no evidence that there are Russian tanks in Ukraine

There is no evidence that there are Russian tanks in Ukraine.The OSCE, Pentagon, Nato Headquarters, the Council of Europe and the Kiev court have never confirmed it.

 

Disproof

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe considers that the actions of the Russian Federation leading up to the annexation of Crimea, and in particular the military occupation of the Ukrainian territory and the threat of the use of military force, the recognition of the results of the illegal so-called referendum and subsequent annexation of Crimea into the Russian Federation constitute, beyond any doubt, a grave violation of international law, including of the United Nations Charter and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Helsinki Final Act. website-pace.net/documents/10643/110596/20140410-Resolution1990-EN.pdf/57ba4bca-8f5f-4b0a-8258-66ca26f7117b,

The European Union stated in July 2014 that "arms and fighters continue flowing into Ukraine from the Russian Federation". www.consilium.europa.eu/uedocs/cms_data/docs/pressdata/en/ec/144158.pdf,
At the NATO Summit in Wales in September 2014, NATO leaders condemned in the strongest terms Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and demanded that Russia stop and withdraw its forces from Ukraine and along the country’s border. NATO leaders also demanded that Russia comply with international law and its international obligations and responsibilities; end its illegitimate occupation of Crimea; refrain from aggressive actions against Ukraine; halt the flow of weapons, equipment, people and money across the border to the separatists; and stop fomenting tension along and across the Ukrainian border. www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/topics_50090.htm#,

Numerous gangs consisting of Ukrainian soldiers are raiding the harvest

Gangs of ATO fighters are prowling all over the country [in Ukraine] and raiding the harvest of the farmers. They just steal the harvest.

 

Disproof

No evidence given. This summer, Ukraine recorded several raider attacks on farmers - the phenomenon that is widespread in all the former Soviet republics. There is however no evidence or record of those kind of raids being carried out by "participants of the Anti-Terror Operation" in Donbas.

EU is presenting itself as a political and almost a military enemy of Russia

We need to understand that the European Union, as a single unit, is presenting itself now as a political and rather often almost a military enemy of Russia.

Disproof

The EU does not position itself as an enemy of Russia. According to Federica Mogherini, Europe pushes for closer Russia cooperation despite the sanctions existing till today and backs, for instance, “selective engagement” with Moscow to solve conflicts www.politico.eu/article/eu-pushes-for-closer-russia-cooperation-federica-mogherini-vladimir-putin-war-syria/,
The EU is Russia's main trading and investment partner, while Russia as the EU's fourth is also its largest oil, gas, uranium and coal exporter.
