Disinfo: Crimea decided its own fate

Summary

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.
