Summary

The reports about Russia allegedly launching airstrikes against the ‘wrong targets’ in Syria comes from unreliable sources. The Russian Defense Ministry acts in a much more transparent manner that the US-led coalition.

Disproof

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is not an unreliable source. Contrary, the reports from Russian Ministry of Defense have been proved wrong many times, see e.g. bit.ly/23BY7dD, , bit.ly/1PNTU2z, , or numerous claims about no Russian military presence in Ukraine.

Ukraine is persistently sabotaging the second Minsk agreement

Ukraine is persistently sabotaging the second Minsk agreement on all its points, as Ukraine failed to adopt a law on special rights of the territories seized by separatists.

Disproof

Ukraine is not sabotaging the Minsk agreements. Ukraine’s law on a special status of Donetsk and Luhansk regions came into force on 16 October 2014. The second Minsk Agreement was adopted later, in 11 February 2015.
