Once again, the media and the foreign policy establishment are dangerously misreading history and current events

A surprisingly level unbiased analysis from a Western source on the Ukraine crisis

+Oleg Sushkov +100 with you on that foreign countries should not intervene. 
However, a few caveats:
1) Let's not repeat like a mantra "democratically elected president". So is Putin. So is Lucashenko. There is not much one can do if the whole political structure is built in a way such that it's impossible for someone outside of "the circle" to run for a presidentship.

2) There are many different things we are arguing about at the same time. Which specific one do you disagree about?

a) Whether there are riots in Kiev. In my opinion "riots" is what the mob did in London. In Ukraine there is highly civilized protest by the public (e.g. all the expensive shops inside the Maidan stay intact. None of the glass is broken. Can you imagine that in London or Paris during the riots?? There is not a single report of a civilian injured by "rioters") , which only responds with violence to a very specific group of people (namely, Berkut)

b) Whether the situation is organized by the West. I personally believe the will of Ukrainian people to be free is sincere. They've tested the freedom during the orange revolution and they want it again.

c) What people are protesting about. Once again, as far as I can tell, people are protesting not "for" the Europe integration, but against a group of criminals who have captured the power.

Just read this nice piece of BS:
http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/04/20/world/europe/ukraine-provides-evidence-of-russian-military-in-civil-unrest.html

So lets use deliberately blurred low res photos of some guys in Ukraine and some Russian soldiers that vaguely look similar and claim this is definitive proof. So lets see if given 5 minutes and the internet I can demonstrate how full of shit the US State Department really is.

Lets take the bearded guy. The guy in 2008 Georgia was the Chechen second in command of the Vostok Battalion. The guy in Ukraine is a local Cossack:

Same guy CLEARLY? At least if youre blind or if youre looking at deliberately blurred photos from the US State Department.

Ok, lets move on to the helmets. Let see...

Pretty clear the helmets are not the same. The Russian helmets air holes diverge going back, the helmets in Ukraine converge. But I guess thats hard to see if again you are looking at reduced resolution photos.

Wow, so that debunking exercise took 5 minutes and the power of the internet. Someone at the US-SD should look into that.

/rant
Ukraine says these photographs show that the men who have taken over government buildings in eastern Ukraine are Russian combatants.

Turns out government sponsorship of fitness programs is literally Stalin! 
Whats next, funding for highways is literally Hitler? Hey, do you know which government was the first to ban smoking?

Bias doesn't get much more blatant than this.
Any connection between present Crimea tensions and Putin's desire to have a fighting-fit population are of course coincidental

Interesting album that shows many of the pictures posted to #SochiProblems  actually had nothing to do with Sochi. In the age of reverse image search it's hard to get away with such bs for long, but the damage is done.

I find it puzzling that US and Western establishment holds up Pussy Riot as heroes and is outraged by their "disproportionate" jail sentence. This is a group responsible for sex orgies in a public museum mind you (nsfw link below). I wonder what kind of sentence they would have gotten if they performed their "Punk Prayer" in say the main Synagogue in Jerusalem? Maybe more than 2 years?

On the other hand, there seems to be nothing amiss when someone like Aaron Swartz is charged with a crime carrying a 35 year prison sentence for releasing some academic papers, and as a result commits suicide. 

There is something seriously wrong when Pussy Riot are held us as heroes and Aaron Swartz as a villain.

What makes it so obvious that this is what they should be charged with? I mean, you're not a lawyer or judge. And anyway, thats totally irrelevant to the overall point. I think the particular crime they were charged with is irrelevant, its really their actions and the reactions of the media. So the fact that they were charged with a more serious crime than they strictly they deserved makes them into heroes? The overall point is that Western media fawns over them as heroes (which they arent), while portraying someone like Aaron Swartz as a villain. Kind of warped priorities.
