Emotional because I have read a lot of what happened to Poland with regards to Russian propaganda ahead of the Teheran and Yalta agreements that basically gave large chunks of Poland to the Soviet Union without much protest or effort on behalf of Poland's supposed allies who just thought it was better to placate Russia, than do what was right. Coupled with the lies back then about who was really responsible for the Katyn Massacres (the allies and the Soviets pinned it on the Nazis, even though the Poles were adamant that it was the Russians, but no one was listening to them at that point).
Oh, but Russia is not the Soviet Union, you might say. True, the Empire has fallen, but there has been no de-Communisation in Russia that has taken a good, hard look at the past and everyone's role in it. A de-Communisation would put ex-KGB chiefs into retirement, not re-elect them as the country's President.
Anyway, here's a good article on the Daily Beast (a much better site now that Andrew Sullivan has left), that goes into who is doing the most in Ukraine to escalate the situation into a full out war: Reality Check in Ukraine
DONETSK, Ukraine -- In the war of words between Washington and Moscow—a rhetorical clash that is descending to personal insults – both sides are determined to prove they are in the right in an information war waged at a Twitter-driven speed that would have made the heads of their Cold War predecessors spin.
But who is telling the truth? Below is The Daily Beast’s checklist on the Geneva agreement that is the closest thing we have as a touchstone for gauging reality.
Diplomats drawn from Russia, Ukraine, the United States and the European Union hammered out the accord on April 17. They agreed to “initial concrete steps to de-escalate tensions” in Ukraine with all sides saying they would “refrain from any violence, intimidation or provocative actions.” The joint communique called for “all illegal armed groups to be disarmed; all illegally seized buildings to be returned to their legitimate owners; all illegally occupied streets, squares and other public places in Ukrainian cities and towns to be vacated.”
Under the accord amnesty would be given to surrendering protesters except for those found guilty of capital crimes. And the OSCE was given a lead role in implementing the accord.
So, who has kept to the letter and spirit of the accord more and who has been more egregious in shunning it?
Read the link to find out. If that's too much for you, then I can summarise. Russia has been escalating, while as the response from Ukraine and all the other countries has been restrained.
