Why does Donald Trump cover up Putin’s involvement in murder?

US presidential candidate Donald Trump has no problem promising to jail his rival and rejecting the court and DNA exoneration of young men he once wanted executed, but he carries the presumption of innocence to bizarre extremes when it comes to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. | detail

PACE & Kremlin-backed militants acknowledge direct Russian control in Donbas

Putin admits to Russian military involvement in Donbas

Crimean Tatars boycott Russia’s illegitimate elections in occupied Crimea

Most Crimean Tatars appear to have boycotted the elections which Russia illegally held in occupied Crimea. How many other Ukrainians also refused to take part is as yet unclear, but it seems likely that despite threats and coercion, the turnout was low.
