MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Monday it was outraged by lawlessness in eastern Ukraine, blaming the far-right paramilitary movement Right Sector for "conniving" with the new government in Kiev.
In its latest salvo in a propaganda war over Ukraine, in which the United States has issued a list of what it calls 10 false claims by President Vladimir Putin, Russia accused the West of being silent over violence and detentions taking place there against Russian compatriots.
The ministry said in a statement masked men had opened fire on peaceful demonstrators in the eastern city of Kharkiv on March 8, wounding some.
It also said seven Russian journalists had been detained in the eastern city of Dnipropetrovsk, suggesting the new leaders and their Western allies were not committed to media freedoms.
"The shamefaced silence of our Western partners, human rights organizations and foreign media is surprising. It raises the question - where is the notorious objectivity and commitment to democracy?" it said.
Kharkiv police are treating the Kharkiv incident as a minor one and say the only link to Right Sector came from an anonymous phone caller.

It is only a matter of time before all hell breaks loose. Everything is moving extremly fast, its scary to think of all these threats to the states.. I live by the border of canada and the us ( on canadian side) I am close to Vancouver and Seatle. If they attack us my area would probly be the first to go. I wouldnt be as worried if I didnt have a 2yr old daughter to protect, I hope this remains a cold war.
I love it. This coming from a guy whose country is owned andErnest operated by the Russian Mafia. They operate with impunity in all facets of Russian life and are entirely out in the open as they do so. Talk about the pot v. kettle.
