Incriminating Video, Endless Lies and Putin’s ‘Premature’ Tribunal on MH17

Within minutes of the downing of Malaysian Airline MH17 Russian television and other media reported that the militants in Donbas had downed a Ukrainian military airplane, and even showed the video footage. It was removed later in the evening as Moscow realized all that it had to hide. No end to lies ever since - or shame | detail

Sloviansk torture, killings, execution orders, yet still no proper investigation

A year has passed since the Kremlin-backed militants who had seized control of Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and the surrounding area fled, leaving behind their hostages, at least one mass grave, ‘death warrants’ and execution lists. Ukraine’s authorities are no longer able to cite lack of access yet are still failing to fully investigate what were undoubtedly grave human rights crimes | detail

No charges and racial motive denied in bloody attack on students in Kharkiv

The only 5 young men arrested following a brutal attack on the student area of Kharkiv on June 11 have been released, with no charges laid. The police deny any racial motive since some of those injured were Ukrainians, although this is clearly not a view shared by many foreign students in Kharkiv. | detail

Kharkiv attack on foreign students was no ‘mass brawl’

Ukraine’s Security Service head has claimed Russia was behind a brutal attack on June 11 in Kharkiv which other officials keep referring to, with equally unclear grounds, as a “mass brawl’. With four Jordanian students the most gravely injured and other students telling journalists that the assailants obviously targeted foreign students, a thorough and transparent investigation is needed, not immediate shouts of ‘provocation’. | detail

Russia Today, or why Odesa May 2 is different from Baltimore

There would be outrage if a TV channel broadcasting in Baltimore reported a fire started by accident and killing a number of Afro-Americans as having been deliberately lit. Still more so if the lie was spread via an English-language channel directly funded by the Kremlin. The latter has done precisely that in pushing a ‘massacre narrative’ about the tragic events on May 2, 2014 in Odesa. | detail

Who wants to turn Kyiv into another Donetsk?

While the western media present any talk of Russian involvement in the killing of journalist Oles Buzina and politician Oleh Kalashnikov as the ‘Kyiv version’, like the ‘Kremlin version’ of Boris Nemtsov’s murder, it is by no means only Ukrainian politicians who are expressing concerns which if warranted would have seriously frightening implications. | detail

Continuing Obstruction of Odessa May 2 Investigation

A court’s refusal to order access to forensic material connected with the events in Odessa on May 2, 2014 may not be breaking news, but it is yet another frustrating failure to understand the need for openness over a tragedy which Russian propaganda is working overtime to claim was a ‘massacre’. | detail

Russia needs more than just stern words on Nadiya Savchenko

Everybody knows who will decide whether Nadiya Savchenko, now on her 55th day of hunger strike, is left to die in Russian detention. The words today from the USA and PACE were blunt, but only words. Greater pressure, perhaps more punitive sanctions are obviously needed. | detail
