Disinfo: The US and Ukraine oppose Putin’s proposal to deploy UN peacekeepers in the east of Ukraine because Washington and Kyiv want to prevent fulfilling the Minsk agreements

Summary

The US does not want regulation of the situation in the east of Ukraine. US and Ukraine oppose Putin’s proposal to deploy UN peacekeepers in the east of Ukraine because Washington and Kyiv want to prevent enforcing the Minsk agreements.

Disproof

No evidence given.
Since 2015, Ukraine has been repeatedly appealing to the UN to deploy peacekeepers to Ukraine and locate them not just along the contact line between the army of Ukraine and the separatists, as Russia proposes now, but throughout all the territory of Donbas, and along the border with Russia. www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/ukrainealert/ukraine-s-diplomatic-war-for-peace,
Moreover, on September 20, at the session of the UN General Assembly, President Petro Poroshenko again called for the deployment of peacekeepers there. www.reuters.com/article/us-un-assembly-ukraine/ukraines-poroshenko-rejects-russias-hybrid-peackeeping-offer-idUSKCN1BW04Q?il=0,
As for the Minsk agreements, both Kyiv and Washington - also repeatedly – have stated that only these agreements can stop the war and ensure peace in this region.
Most of the Minsk agreements measures depend above all on Russia and its proxies, including the need for a ceasefire, the withdrawal of all heavy weaponry, full monitoring access for the OSCE, and the full restoration of control of the state border to the Ukrainian government.

Crimea decided its own fate

Crimea decided its own fate. All the world supported Russia; China and India supported Russia.

 

Disproof

The international community, including China and India, refused to recognize the annexation of Crimea: see UN GA Resolution A/RES/68/262 adopted on March 27, 2014, on the territorial integrity of Ukraine. China and India abstained from voting. www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=47443&Cr=ukraine&Cr1=#.Wci_xmcdiEB,
The resolution states that the referendum in Crimea that led to the peninsula’s annexation by Russia “has no validity".
Beijing has not imposed sanctions on Russia, but it has also refrained from backing Russia. China has repeatedly stated since 2014 that "On the issue of Ukraine, China has adopted an objective and just position. We respect Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity."

U.S evacuated ISIS leaders and field commanders from the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor

US Air Force helicopter has evacuated 2 Daesh field commanders of “European origin” with members of their families from an area located to the north-west of Deir ez-Zor at night. According to a source, two days later, US choppers transferred 20 Daesh field commanders and militants close to them from an area south-eastern of the city of Deir ez-Zor to northern Syria.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that the Coalition against Daesh is aiding Daesh. No evidence given. No explanation given as to why the Coalition fighting Daesh would evacuate the very forces they are fighting. As reported by DFRLab, copies of stories alleging that the United States rescued ISIS commanders were shared more than 14 thousand times in total, generating thousands of impressions and clicks without a shred of evidence to support it.
