Disinfo: The US government gave spoken promise to Gorbachev that NATO…

Summary

The US government gave spoken promise to Gorbachev that NATO will not expand further to the East. There are Nazis in power in Ukraine. There is a civil war in Ukraine, no Russian military involvement.

Disproof

NATO never made such a promise. This claim ignores the basic fact that NATO cannot "expand", the candidate country asks the allies be let in. See bit.ly/2a9K8Jt, // Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that (bit.ly/1Tdu8Qw), // Even Vladimir Putin admitted Russia had / has “people there [in Ukraine] who deal with certain matters, including in the military area” bit.ly/1S1YCdq,

Mainstream media spread propaganda in favour of the USA and the EU. The only positive phenomenon is “alternative media”. There is no such thing as objective journalism.

Disproof

The "alternative media" meant in the article are pro-Kremlin sites spreading disinformation. // Yes, there is objective reporting. Facts are not a matter of opinion, facts are facts.

It is absurd to speak about the threat from Russia

It is absurd to speak about the threat from Russia

Disproof

The simulated attacks by Russian warplanes on USS Donald Cook, the abduction of Estonian security service operative, Eston Kohver, the repeated violation of the Baltic states' airspace, military threats against EU Member States and dozens of other provocations by Russia suggest otherwise (see e.g. ind.pn/1ypG9d1), .
