The United States is considering delivering deadly weapons to Ukraine. They want the conflict to escalate.

Summary

According to a special US ambassador to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, the US wants to deliver deadly weapons to Ukraine. This means that the US is interested in escalating the conflict in Ukraine because it allows them to get closer to the Russian-Ukrainian border. America again shows its aggressive policy and the essence of its relationship to the south-east of Ukraine.

Disproof

The US Special Envoy to Ukraine described the conflict in the southeast of Ukraine as "a hot war". According to his observation, the Ukrainian government forces needed help with the challenges to better defend themselves against separatist attacks. "Defensive weapons, those that would allow Ukraine to defend itself, and take out tanks for example, would actually help." He stressed, however, that no such decision has been made.

EU wants to ban information about the of country of origin on the food labels

EU wants to ban information about the of country of origin on food labels. This measure is applied in order to fight against the nationalistic tendencies in member states.

Disproof

The original text from Italian website Afffaritalini  is about a quarrel between the European Commision and Italy, since Italy started to demand from producers to write on food labels where the product was produced and packed.

According to the European Commission, the current approach is that the country of origin or place of provenance labelling on food is voluntary, unless its absence could mislead consumers.

Former President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, urged Russia to help liberate his country from the US occupation

The former Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, made his contribution at the meeting of the Valdai Discussion club in Sochi. He asked Russia and Vladimir Putin, who was present personally, to help him to liberate Afghanistan from US occupation.

Disproof

The alleged request for Russia to help Afghanistan to free itself from US occupation did not occur. Hamid Karzai, in his speech at the Valdai Discussion Club, did criticize US policy in Afghanistan and appealed to the United States to reflect on the current situation and to try to figure out how to solve their current ineffective Afghanistan policy.

Hamid Karzai (according to the Kremlin webpage): "The way forward is this: the United States of America in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage in a new contact with Afghan people. Two: the United States in Afghanistan must begin to re-engage with our neighbours and big powers of the world – that means our neighbours, that means China, that means Russia, that means India – on a clear, transparent platform of objectives. And with this in mind, the international community must support the Afghan mechanism for the resolution of the problems that we have."
