US is the main obstacle to ending the Syrian war

Summary

US is the main obstacle to ending the Syrian war. In Syria and Iraq, the US is pretending to fight the Daesh.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that the US is protecting or working together with ISIS/Daesh https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Daesh&disinfo_issue=&date=. The US is fighting against Daesh together with the Global Coalition against Daesh http://theglobalcoalition.org/en/home/. The US MoD outlines the latest progress on their website https://www.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/1322158/strikes-continue-in-effort-to-defeat-isis-in-syria-iraq/.

Western experts confirm the Russian army’s superiority

Western experts confirm the Russian army’s superiority.

Disproof

The programme Voyennaya Taina used invented Western experts: One was a well known meme character "Hide the Pain Harold". The second expert statement presented was falsely put into Frank Gorenc's mouth. The "commander of the United States Air Force in Europe", was quoted saying that the Russian weapon used against the United States Navy destroyer, the Donald Cook, could paralyze American electronic equipment on missiles, aircraft and ships. The Pentagon has said that the general has never issued such a statement. The false quote was published on TV Channel Rossiya 1 first time in April 2017.  Photos of the other "experts" that are shown during the programme are taken from image stock websites. Further debunking by the Insider.

 

Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly rejected all the anti-Russian proposals by Kyiv and will abolish all political sanctions against Russia

Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly rejected all the anti-Russian proposals by Kyiv and will abolish all political sanctions against Russia.

Disproof

Misleading information. With the resolution, the Council of Europe calls for a Summit to "reaffirm European unity and to defend and promote democratic security in Europe". The last summit was organised 12 years ago in 2005. The Council of Europe has two branches – a Parliamentary Assembly and the Committee of Ministers. The assembly comprises delegations from the parliaments of member countries. Because of its aggression against Ukraine, Russia has been suspended from taking part in the assembly since 2014. This is the only sanction referred to in the resolution as one which would potentially be lifted. The Committee of Ministers consists of the Foreign Ministers, or senior diplomats, from the member states. The Council of Europe’s sanctions against Russia did not extend to this committee.
