What happened in Nagorno-Karabakh and the strategy of President Vladimir Putin paralysed Ukrainian leadership. Their plans in the Donbas and Crimea are now unfeasible. Ukraine was discussing military cooperation with Turkey, but the peace deal shocked both leaderships. If Ukraine, following Azerbaijan’s example, tried to take back the Donbas with force now, it would give Russia a free hand to act.

No evidence is provided to support the articles' claims.
This claim combines at least three three pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives. The first is the narrative about the alleged US promotion of separatism and terrorism in different regions of the world as a means to destabilise rival countries.
The second narrative portrays the US as an imperialistic or occupying power in Europe that threatens the national sovereignty of European countries.
The third narrative claims that the US and other Western governments provoke wars, revolutions and other violent conflicts in order to flood Europe with refugees.
There is no evidence that the US promotes the Balkanisation, that is, the growth of separatism and ethnic fragmentation of states, of Europe, nor that the US aims to weaken democratic values in Europe. The claims that Washington resorts to “selective terrorist attacks” and deliberately floods Europe with refugees are likewise totally unfounded,
