The Ukrainian conflict was sparked by the USA in 2014.
The final report by special counsel Robert Mueller cleared both Trump’s campaign team of collusion with the Kremlin and the president himself of obstruction of justice. It doesn’t provide evidence of Russian interference in the US elections in 2016. This proves how Russia is part of a campaign whereby it is always falsely accused of incidents, such as the poisoning of the Skripals, attempting to hack the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, interfering in the European elections or even Brexit.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Muller report. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report affirms that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities”. Nevertheless it states that interference activities took place, as already concluded earlier by US intelligence community and by Mueller’s own inquiry: “the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts”. This was highlighted by several US media. Moreover, it is not possible to infer from the report that Russia was falsely accused of other misdeeds, such as the poisoning of the Skripals and the hacking attempt against the OPCW. Strong evidence of Russian involvement for both incidents has been provided by the UK and Dutch authorities.
