MOSCOW (AP) An assassination attempt against Russian President Vladimir Putin. A desperate ploy to draw the West into the battle for Ukraine's east. A botched mission to commit mass murder against Russian citizens.
Russian news consumers are getting plenty of explanations for the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, which killed 298 people. While they vary wildly in content, all point the finger at Ukraine. None admits the possibility that Russia may bear responsibility.
The story of the airline tragedy that is unfolding for Russians differs starkly from the one that people are following in the West.

Putin’s police state based on propaganda and fear is really outdoing itself with this crime. He’s keen to reestablish the Soviet empire and some Putinistas praise him for it.
An assassination attempt against Russian President Vladimir Putin... Russian news consumers are getting plenty of explanations for the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, which killed 298 people.A Freak posted exactly that to me last week... that if I followed the news, I would know it was an assassination attempt.
Almost like Obamas political machine that feeds lies to the population thru a controlled media.
I am always amazed at our media saying the same thing at the same time.
If that isn’t control, I don’t know what is.
They also all refuse to cover events or report them all at the same time.
Our press isn’t free any longer or things like this would not be happening.
Just like the crap we’re fed about Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, etc. etc. etc.
Chances are, both were just "whoops" moments by our military and theirs.
With the amount of live ammo around, it's amazing there aren't more mistaken shoot downs.
We have to remember, both sides are dealing with and dishing out government propaganda and cover ups, the real problem lies with which government tells the truth.
Well this gives some explanation to my finding that Stalinists lie. ALWAYS.
