• Western powers vow ‘strong’ response if major Ukraine truce violated


    KIEV: Western leaders have called for a “strong reaction” from the international community to any major violation of a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine as they seek to further pressure Russia over the conflict. The leaders of the United States, Germany, France, Britain and Italy plus EU head Donald Tusk on Tuesday also argued for strengthening a mission charged with monitoring the ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons. In video talks on the conflict, the leaders restated their support for a February 12 truce between government forces and pro-Russian separatists, the French presidency said.

      It was the Kiev government in Ukraine that broke the first Minsk agreement by bombarding the separatist regions and than launching an invasion. The western media remained quiet about the invasion thinking that their lapdogs in Kiev was winning. When the tables were turned and the separatists surrounded the invaders the western media suddenly started screaming and yelling to end the fighting. It is a very sad state of affairs that the western media has become nothing but a bullhorn of western imperialist interests. It no longer reports the truth but hides it. Sometimes it tells half-truths and outright lies. The time will come when the world will go to a another world war because of deliberate misinformation.
