You believe the western media? Your kidding?
I don't have any trust in the Russian press
It was also the much-maligned Russian press that first reported the secret visit of CIA Director John Brennan to Kiev. Though the White House later confirmed that report, Herszenhorn still cited Medvedev’s reference to it in the context of “misinformation” and “conspiracy theories.”
Curiously, one of the few prominent Westerners who has dared question the prevailing wisdom on Ukraine is former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger who said, in an interview with the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel, that the West was exaggerating the significance of the Crimean annexation given the peninsula’s long historic ties to Russia.
“The annexation of the Crimea was no bid for world domination,” the 91-year-old Kissinger said. “It is not to be compared with Hitler’s invasion in Czechoslovakia” – as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and others have done.

All of the video clips shown here are publicly available on YouTube - my job was to add the subtitles and compile everything together for easy viewing. No more, no less.
Or how about what happens to those that report the truth:

Look at that all the Putinista' s on one thread...can't say I didn't see that coming.
That's pretty rich coming from you, someone whose on every single Ukraine thread bashing Russia and anyone who dares defend them. What should we label you then? Speaking personally, I don't see myself as a defender of Putin..he's no better or worse than any other politician on the planet. What I can't stand is the rank hipocrisy of the west, especially the US. A country that invaded Iraq on false pretenses, destroyed half the country, killed untold thousands of innocents, installed an American governor, held an election while still occupying the place with thousands of troops, and then claiming a victory for "democracy". Then have the balls to criticize Russia for a bloodless "annexation" and election. Sure, people can criticize Russia....just not the west or any of it's bumbuddies.
But despite the hypocritical instrumentalisation of the Russian propaganda, the Ukrainian authorities and mainstream opinion in Ukraine continue to show unacceptable ignorance of the danger from the far right and even openly neo-Nazi forces, cooperating with them in elections and allowing them to take positions within law enforcement.
But what is striking is that far-right and neo-Nazi views and connections do not seem to be problematic for either Ukrainian officials or mainstream opinion.
Moreover, some of the new MPs are not just far right but actual neo-Nazis. Take Andriy Biletsky, elected in a single-member district in Kiev with support from the People’s Front party led by Arseniy Yatseniuk. Biletsky was the head of an openly racist Patriot of Ukraine group which was involved in hate crimes against minorities, and later formed the core of the infamous Azov volunteer battalion, which uses neo-Nazi symbolism. He was celebrated as commander of the Azov battalion and assigned to the rank of lieutenant colonel in the police.

It's a joke when a person who speaks passionately is likened to Hitler.
The obsession that the pro Russian have in branding Ukraine as a Nazi state is frankly ridiculous. It hides the point made by others that the closer Russia slides to authoritarianism the closer to Fascism they will become. Pro Russians squeal about Nazism to hide their own slide towards blinkered nationalism.
- Hitler controlled the press, but so does Putin.
- Hitler used "people of Germanic origins" as pretext to annex and invade other nations, so did Putin in Crimea - and still does in Eastern Ukraine.
The characteristics of Nazism being directed towards the Ukrainian leadership are misplaced. They are a smoke-screen that attempts to give legitimacy to Russian actions.
