The establishment media has virtually ignored the carnage in eastern Ukraine while it focuses on the alleged shoot down of MH17.
Vladimir Putin is widely condemned while the indiscriminate killings and ethnic cleansing of the Ukraine Security Service and military are left unmentioned.
Since the regime’s crackdown on “terrorists,” in other words separatists in the eastern part of the country opposed to rule imposed by the Kyiv regime, nearly 500 hundred civilians have died, including seven children. 1,392 civilians have been wounded. 279 remain in the hospital.
The body count is verified by the regime’s own Ministry of Health.
250 of the dead were in the opposition-controlled city of Lugansk, according to the Organization for Security and Co‑operation in Europe.
The OSCE figures did not include civilians killed in close vicinity of combat zones outside the city as well as causalities among those involved in fighting, according to the report.
The OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission added that “increasingly more people were being killed by booby traps and mines.”
The civilian deaths are not reflected in most corporate media stories because this information conflicts with a narrative designed to single out Russia as the perpetrator of violence in Ukraine.
This is part of a larger agenda to undermine Russian influence in Europe and sabotage BRICS, the emerging economic association of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
BRICS directly challenges the Wall Street and City of London dominated financial order and threatens U.S. dollar hegemony.
