Disinfo: Ukraine’s Defense Ministry invites separatist militants to join its ranks,…

Summary

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry invites separatist militants to join its ranks, urging the separatists to turn themselves in together with tanks and APCs.

Disproof

The Ukrainian military has launched a program called “They’re waiting for you at home” which allows those separatist militants who have had a change of heart and have not committed crimes to return home to their families and be rehabilitated. On his Facebook page, Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko speculates that it would be good if separatists who hand in military hardware to the Ukrainian side could be either acquitted by a court or have their sentence reduced. These are personal ideas of Lysenko and not Ukrainian official policy. bit.ly/2ea6gAz,

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the biggest donors to the Clinton Foundation

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the biggest donors to the Clinton Foundation. The support for Saudi Arabia and Qatar is directed to ISIL, and a recently leaked email of Hillary Clinton on WikiLeaks proves that she contributed to arming ISIS.

Disproof

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are not the biggest donors of the Clinton Foundation (the exact numbers aren't known but they range from $10 million to $25 million, wapo.st/2exqd5B), . The leaked email refers to concerns about founding for Daesh from Saudi Arabia / Qatar are financing ISIL (for whatever reason, ind.pn/2ee5iU7), . Clinton Foundation is involved in charitable work, not in financing the Presidential campaign.
