A Forbes Russia journalist who was close by when Russian TV 1, or Pervy Kanal, correspondent Anatoly Klyan was killed on Sunday evening, has suggested the real role assigned journalists on that fatal trip. They were taken there to come under fire. With Russias Foreign Ministry and Kremlin-loyal TV channels thundering all day about the war the fascists in Kyiv are allegedly waging against journalists and civilians, Orkhan Jemals report warrants attention.
Jemal concludes: There will probably now be a whole lot of statements about the inhuman Kyiv fascists who shoot journalists. Although all who were there, without exception, understand that we were simply placed under fire. Its not for nothing that they call this war mainly information: a busload of journalists shot at is also a propaganda achievement, no worse than a military unit thats surrendered.

Putin and his desire for a commie regime to be the number one power in the world is busy dozing up to Iran, Iraq, and Syria....Everyone should be very very concerned....particularly since the Dictator In Chief seems to be willing to do nothing
Hmmmm... Betcha Obama's lips were curled into a wistful smile as he dreamed last night of similar treatment for conservative commentators and Fox News reporters...
If you read the article more carefully you’ll notice that in this case the pro-Russians sent their own journalists to be shot in order to manufacture outrage.
In light of this new (and predictable information) do you intend to revise and extend your remarks?
All I see here is propaganda not facts.
The reporter was sent from Russia to view this attack, he now realizes. It was a set up by the Russians not the evil fascist, tea-party Ukrainians.
