The whole Media reporting of the goings on in Ukraine is becoming as weird and self serving as the various factions conduct in the whole dispute.
Having the TV on in the background usually on a News Channel means the constant sniping of networks loyal to one side or another is very obvious. Now, don’t get me wrong like many i long ago accepted that the media would only report what versions of news fitted their particular agenda at the time.. But I’m really getting sick of the News Networks digging at each other about how the Ukraine situation is being reported on their respective networks.
Has anyone been following the troubles in Kiev?
The one thing that strikes me is that these troubled times boil down to the Ukrainian president accepting a bail out/trade deal from Russia instead of a trade deal with the EU. These recent rounds of disturbances have apparently claimed some 25+ lives (protesters and police). We have protesters firing weapons at police and burning the city centre’s Independence Square and it’s buildings and the police firing back.
Nobody seems to dispute that the protesters were given the opportunity having made their point to pack up and go home without fear of reprisals, yet the troubles just seem to escalate. We are now 3 months into these protests With no end in sight.
