West is Blocking Chemical Weapons Inspections in Syria

Summary

[Referring to several past cases of chemical weapons use in Syria, including in Eastern Ghouta and Khan Sheikhoun] Russia has called for inspections by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), but that Russia’s “Western colleagues” moved to block these inspections.

Disproof

Western countries did not try to block OPCW inspections in Syria. In fact, Russia and its Syrian government ally have impeded the OPCW’s work several times.

Baltic countries are typical replica states with no own political history and tradition

The Baltic countries are typical “replica states” with the absence of their own political history and tradition.

The main task is to forever tear off the Baltic region from Russia and Russian influence and to raise the younger generations of Latvians, Estonians, and Lithuanians in the spirit of total Russophobia and admiration for the West.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania became independent in 1918. Three countries were occupied and illegally incorporated first by the Soviet Union, then by Nazi Germany from 1941 to 1944, and again by the Soviet Union from 1944 to 1991, when they regained the independence: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupation_of_the_Baltic_states, , www.britannica.com/place/Baltic-states/Independence-and-the-20th-century,

US Sells Ukraine Defective Javelins

The United States sold Ukraine defective Javelin anti-tank missiles. As proof, the media published a letter from the state Kyiv design bureau Luch to the National Security and Defence Council Secretary Oleksander Turchynov, who asked the company to review the reliability of the Javelins after they allegedly failed to fire during a training demonstration on May 22.

Disproof

Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council called the "Luch" letter a fake. The Council never asked Luch to assess the Javelins and never received any letter from them about the missiles. Further debunk by StopFake: www.stopfake.org/en/fake-us-sells-ukraine-defective-javelins/,

Finland and Sweden are being dragged into NATO structures. An agreement was signed in May providing for their full-fledged participation in NATO drills and for possible use of its troops and weapons control systems. In exchange, NATO has been granted unimpeded access to the airspace and territorial waters of these countries.
