Debunk claim:

Repeating already debunked disinformation. Germany is an independent and sovereign country. // The war in Eastern Ukraine is a consequence of Russian military aggression (http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/publications/reports/hiding-in-plain-sight-putin-s-war-in-ukraine-and-boris-nemtsov-s-putin-war). // US President Barack Obama has repeatedly urged Vladimir Putin to use his influence with President Bashar al- Assad of Syria to press him to stop attacks against opposition forces and abide by his commitment to a partial cease-fire (http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.MKTP.KD.ZG).
