Summary

The US is trying to take control of Russian sea ports.

Disproof

No evidence given. On May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed revised legislation outlining the American response to new threats posed by North Korea’s nuclear aspirations. H.R.1644, the Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act, sets out enhanced measures for identifying and inspecting foreign seaports and airports that “knowingly” violate the UN Security Council resolution on North Korea. These include two ports in China, eleven in Iran, four in Syria and three in Russia. The bill would sanction ports and port operators that fail to comply with UN Security Council resolutions. bit.ly/2rhAdpP,

The International Court of Justice has taken a principled stand and did not support the numerous and well-known statements of the Ukrainian side about the alleged so-called “aggression” and “occupation” of Crimea, viewing them as being unrelated to the essence of the proceedings. Contrary to the claims of the Ukrainian side, there is not a word in the text of the court’s decision about ‘repression’, ‘persecution’ and the like by Russia in relation to the Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians living in Crimea, or about the requirement ‘to lift the ban of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.

Disproof

Actually, the International Court of Justice's preliminary ruling confirmed two things: first, that the ICJ has jurisdiction to hear Ukraine's case against Russia; secondly, that there is sufficient evidence to allow Ukraine's case to continue. bit.ly/2onpmZC,
