As its ’Ukrainian sabotage stunt’ flops, Russia menacingly claims a ’Crimean Tatar link’

Although Russia’s claims that Ukraine had tried to ‘attack’ its own territory in Crimea have failed to convince anybody, the arrests are continuing.

“Saboteur’ or tortured victim of Russia’s ’Ukrainian state terrorism’ hysteria shown on TV

The threatened Russian ‘response’ to alleged ‘attacks’ by Ukraine on Russian-occupied Crimea has not included answers to very basic questions, with the Russians supposedly killed remaining unnamed, together with almost all the alleged ’saboteurs’.

Russia’s pre-planned ‘Ukrainian incursion’ on Russian-occupied Crimea

If Russia wanted to make its claims of an attempted Ukrainian terrorist attack on Russian-invaded and occupied Crimea credible, it should not have blocked the last remaining independent Internet sites days before the alleged attack. Bringing in massive amounts of military hardware prior to the supposed event also seriously lowers plausibility. | detail

Why has the media been so cautious about Russia’s role in the conflict? It is not due to a lack of evidence. Proof of Russian involvement has been overwhelming since the early days of the fighting in eastern Ukraine | detail

French MPs paid from Russian coffers for Crimea propaganda trip?

So how much do French parliamentarians take for their collaboration and propaganda services in justifying the invasion and occupation of the invasion and occupation of Ukrainian Crimea and muffling grave human rights abuses?

Mark it down, Mr Trump, Russia has already gone into Ukraine

Considering his multiple advisers with strong Russian links, US presidential candidate Donald Trump has proven disturbingly ignorant about Russia’s aggression against Ukraine - both Crimea & Eastern Ukraine, and seems quite indifferent to international law if a good deal can be struck with Russia | detail

Putin wants ’grounds’ to release innocent Ukrainian political prisoners

Grotesquely flawed trials and proof of total innocence are not enough for Russian President Vladimir Putin, it seems. He needs ‘grounds’ why he should release Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko and other Ukrainian political prisoners. | detail

Les collabos français embrassent le monument aux envahisseurs russes en Crimée

11 parlementaires français ne se sont pas contentés de violer la loi ukrainienne et les sanctions internationales en visitant la Crimée. Ils ont également participé à un spectacle de propagande honteuse, niant les violations flagrantes des droits de l’homme sous l’occupation russe et calomniant les Tatars de Crimée qui ont été enlevés, et très probablement assassinés. | detail

French Collaborators Kiss Monument to Russian Invaders of Crimea

Survey finds only 18% identifying with Kremlin-backed ‘Donetsk people’s republic’

If the results of a recent survey can be trusted, less than one in five residents of areas under the control of the so-called ‘Donetsk people’s republic’ [DNR] identify themselves as ‘citizens’ of this unrecognized creation. The result is even lower than the level of support which the militants themselves inadvertently revealed, and then ‘adjusted’, but it can certainly not be dismissed as insignificant. | detail
