Disinfo: The Revolution of Dignity made by Ukrainians in 2014 was…

Summary

The Revolution of Dignity made by Ukrainians in 2014 was a “bloody coup” whose organizers should be held responsible at the court of justice.

Disproof

There was no "coup" in Ukraine. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to the Yanukovych government’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The Presidential and parliamentary elections were open, free and democratic.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the biggest donors to the Clinton Foundation

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the biggest donors to the Clinton Foundation. The support for Saudi Arabia and Qatar is directed to ISIL, and a recently leaked email of Hillary Clinton on WikiLeaks proves that she contributed to arming ISIS.

Disproof

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are not the biggest donors of the Clinton Foundation (the exact numbers aren't known but they range from $10 million to $25 million, wapo.st/2exqd5B), . The leaked email refers to concerns about founding for Daesh from Saudi Arabia / Qatar are financing ISIL (for whatever reason, ind.pn/2ee5iU7), . Clinton Foundation is involved in charitable work, not in financing the Presidential campaign.
