Disinfo: The US supports the Islamic State, while Russia defeated it

Summary

Russia carried out a military operation in Syria in the shortest possible time, defeated the so called Islamic State, behind which is the US and managed to establish order in the region. Everybody knows who created this terrorist organisation, who financed, who armed and who strengthened it – of course this is America. Meanwhile, Russia managed to destroy and uproot immediately this most terrible nest of terrorism. By this Russia left Washington without its strongest weapon – this terrorist organisation.

The EU supplied Syrian terrorists with weapons

European-made radio-electronic tools and weapons were found in the possession of terrorists in Syria, and it seems like the EU gave adequate supplies to them. The United States tried to create a pro-ISIS opposition to hinder the peace process in Syria.
