“I find interesting that it’s really difficult to google English items on the topic”
I’ve been following this since the Civil War began. Western Media (US especially) tends to be days to a week behind reporting major news from Ukraine, and often only does so after it’s cleared and spun by the Obamunists.
There are dozens of videos of this event, and the fighting, all over Youtube and Twitter.
It is important news to Russian and Eastern Euro media. To ours, not so much, unless Obama wants to make a point.
I bet they are way quicker in reporting the things which are favourable to Kyiv, such as something what can be interpreted as Russian intervention.
You are very correct about the Western media’s reporting - or lack thereof - regarding the Ukraine crisis. It took the Washington Post two weeks to acknowledge the turnaround in the fighting in East Ukraine last summer!
You don’t necessarily have to agree with everything they say either, but for those interested in getting the “other side of the story,” apart from RT and Russian news agencies, Sputnik and ITAR-TASS, I recommend the following websites:
Russia Insider (sponsored by Western ex-pats living in Russia)
Fort Russ (translated articles from Russian media).
Vineyard of the Saker (blog by geopolitical analyst.
Bias by omission is even more prevalent in the West than bias by prevarication (though there is plenty of that too).
