European leaders have accepted the loss of Crimea

European leaders, who create the political climate in the world, have accepted that Crimea is lost and never mention it in meetings any longer.

Disproof

The EU has reconfirmed the non-recognition policy for Crimea in declarations by the High Representative on behalf of the EU of 16 March 2015, 18 March 2016 and 18 March 2017.

Whenever Russia refers to Crimea and Sevastopol as part of the Russian Federation in multilateral fora, such as the UN, the OSCE, the Council of Europe and WTO, the EU makes a statement in response to remind the world that it does not recognize the illegal annexation.

Washington has declared a war to Moscow with placing military bases around Russia

Military bases [of the US and NATO]! Around Russia – [Are these bases created] against terrorism? Listen! The war was declared to us, in fact.

 

Disproof

No evidence given. US has not declared a war against Russia.
As already explained by NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow, geography and physics make it impossible for the NATO system to shoot down Russian intercontinental missiles from NATO sites in Romania or Poland. Their capabilities are too limited, their planned numbers too few, and their locations too far south or too close to Russia to do so. Russian officials have also confirmed that the planned NATO shield will not, in fact, undermine Russia's deterrent.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Russia's missile defence envoy, said on January 26, 2015, that "neither the current, nor even the projected" missile defence system "could stop or cast doubt on Russia's strategic missile potential" (bit.ly/1XKby93), .

US authorities are supporting terrorists who destroyed American skyscrapers on September 11

US at least supports the very same terrorists that carried out the September 11. … At least, it is supporting! Considering the situation inside the US, it is possible to assume that it was a conspiracy conducted by the US intelligence services and Mr. Cheney against [President] Bush!

 

Disproof

One more conspiracy, no evidence given. The 9/11 conspiracy theory has been refuted several times – also by “9-11 Commission" conducted by the US legislators. 9-11commission.gov/report/,
