Having an immediate family in Ukraine, I was shocked by how untruthful this article is about the situation in Ukraine. This is the most untruthful article I have read in the Western media. My family is from the Russian-speaking south (city of Mykolaiv and Odessa), and we interpret your article as lying Russian propaganda. Yanukovich ran Ukraine as a Mafia-style enterprise. During this revolution, he hired gangs to beat his opponents on streets to death, confiscated people’s businesses for his oligarch son during his last four years, created a business monopoly for his own family and much, much more. Every person in Ukraine I know participated in this revolution because the ousted president was a criminal, with a criminal record!
Russia is another story, and they are Nazis in this case. Please explain what is Nazi-like swastika symbols used by Ukrainians? What a fake lie! You see more swastikas in Moscow. The swastika was only used by Ukrainians to accuse Russia of Nazi-like behavior when they annexed Crimea.
The author has no clue what is going on in Ukraine, or has received a good bonus from the Russian government. Shame on you for putting out this lie! Our friend’s son was kidnaped by twelve Russian fighters in Kramatorsk and executed because he mentioned to his neighbors that he does not support this war. His mother, who was present when they broke into the house, said they were Chechens from Russia. So why not mention Russia’s sending terrorists to Ukraine who execute people and blow up bridges and trains? I am shocked by the amount of lies in your article. Wow.
