Obama is “dumping” the Ukrainian radicals. Reuters and other Western MSM are educating the public about good and bad Ukrainian nationalists, to save the face of the junta and the West, which is supporting it. Perhaps, the Right Sector should have taken the money from the State Department and turned into a political force, as they were asked in the spring, after they served their purpose on Maidan. But it would not be possible, even if they tried. The genie is out of the bottle.
Still approving the bombing of civilians in the majority Russian areas by their new anti-Russian government after toppling the elected president, MSM began to selectively report about the truth in Ukraine.
It will be very convenient to hang all the transgressions that occurred since February in Ukraine on the ‘bad nationalists’.
Some points in the article are BS, but it is noteworthy:
The provision of humanitarian aid was being hampered by pro-Kiev volunteer battalions that were increasingly preventing food and medicine from reaching those in need in eastern Ukraine, he said.
“Attempting to create unbearable conditions of life is a whole new ballgame… using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is a war crime.”
The battalions often act like “renegade gangs” and urgently need to be brought under control, Krivosheev added.
Social benefits, including pensions, have also become a major concern for those in eastern Ukraine following Kiev’s decision to transfer the payments to government-controlled areas, the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR) said.
