Western concerns about the civilian lives in Aleppo are a propaganda campaign to spoil Russia’s glorious victory

Summary

The West and “its” UN immediately began to sound the alarm of a “terrible humanitarian catastrophe” – worried about the fate of terrorist families. Now the point is to cast a shadow on Russia’s unquestionable victory; a victory the audiences in the West will not hear about. 

Disproof

Recurring narrative on the West campaigning against Russia. Western media has reported on the situation throughout the conflict in Syria and there is no glorious victory on either side, since there has been massive loss of civilian lives.

Spontaneous celebrations took place in Aleppo after the defeat of the terrorists

Spontaneous celebrations took place in Aleppo after terrorists, supported by the Western powers, were defeated and the city was freed, as shown by video footage. The video is in opposition to claims by mainstream media which only report the suffering in Aleppo.

Disproof

It is unclear - and unlikely - that the video was taken in Aleppo. Moreover, the video was made by Iranian Press TV, which is dubious. Iran is directly engaged in Syria on the side of Bashar al Assad's regime and its media are not independent
