Disinfo: The reason the EU treats Russia unfairly on the question of Syria and Ukraine is its own crisis

Summary

The reason the EU treats Russia unfairly on the question of Syria and Ukraine is because it is in crisis. At their latest summit, EU leaders discussed new sanctions against Russia in response to its actions in Syria, which are in fact for the benefit of the Syrian people.

Disproof

There is ample evidence for Russia’s crimes in Syria. For several months now EU leaders and international organisations have been trying to prevent Russia from bombing Alleppo and causing mass casualties: bit.ly/2cCG2pd,

Ukraine will have to return Lviv to Poland because both…

Ukraine will have to return Lviv to Poland because both the Ukrainian and Polish parliaments recognised the 1939 Molotov Ribbentrop Pact as being outside the law. Therefore, western Ukraine is in fact occupied Poland.

Disproof

The Ukrainian-Polish declaration of Memory and Solidarity, made on 20 October to pay homage to Ukrainian and Polish WWII victims and to condemn external aggressors who attempted to destroy the two countries' national independence, does not say that the pact was outside the law - it simply condemns it. There is nothing about returning Lviv in the declaration: bit.ly/2fsprrp,

US prepare a false-flag ”Russian” invasion of Alaska

An unnamed former US Navy Official warned that evidence suggests that the Russian army is preparing for an invasion to Alaska, also by sending undercover soldiers that are already there. This is in fact a US false-flag operation intended to create an excuse for war of US against Russia.

Disproof

No evidence for this conspiracy theory given.
