Here we refute the US regime's own lies made in that article, with a bonus 11th point: the sniper provocation that toppled Ukraine's government has all the marks and motives of the opposition and US neocons. This was a fascist, oligarchical coup, and Russia is well within its rights to reclaim its territory.
