Summary

[An example why the EU does not respect] territorial integrity: The unification of Germany. [Another example why the EU does not respect] territorial integrity: Europe recognized the collapse of the Soviet Union. That is, talking about territorial integrity, as it was understood in Helsinki, is out of the question. Europe destroyed Yugoslavia.

Disproof

The principle of territorial integrity has always been one of the cornerstones of the EU's foreign policy. As for Germany, its unification was recognized not only by Europe, but also by Moscow.

Europe did not wage a war in Yugoslavia. The former Yugoslavia was a Socialist state created after German occupation in World War II and a bitter civil war. A federation of six republics, it brought together Serbs, Croats, Bosnian Muslims, Albanians, Slovenes and others under a comparatively relaxed communist regime. Tensions between these groups were successfully suppressed under the leadership of President Tito. After Tito's death in 1980, tensions re-emerged. Calls for more autonomy within Yugoslavia by nationalist groups led in 1991 to declarations of independence in Croatia and Slovenia.

Bellingcat investigation of the MH17 tragedy was just a reaction to new proof that Ukrainian forces shot down the plane

The results of the joint investigation of the MH17 tragedy by the Bellingcat and the Insider were an answer to the revelations of the former Ukrainian army colonel Yuriy Baturin who says that the plane was shot down by Ukrainian forces. The results of the joint investigation identify the voice of Russian General Nikolay Tkachev to be the same as of the person Dolphin – one of the key figure in the tragedy. But in fact none of the experts dared to state that it is definitely his voice, even though the investigators even made a provocation to obtain his voice samples.

Disproof

Misleading information that aims to frame Bellingcat and the Insider as unreliable sources. Repeating recurring disinformation about MH17.

In fact the joint investigation between The Insider and Bellingcat used open source research, investigative journalism, and forensic voice analysis to determine the identity of “Delfin,” a key figure sought by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the Dutch-led criminal investigation into the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 (MH17). The investigation has identified, to a high degree of certainty, Delfin as Colonel General Nikolai Fedorovich Tkachev, currently serving as the Chief Inspector of the Central Military District of the Russian Federation.
