Russian military aggression, terrorist attacks, intimidation, and warmongering, being covert before, are now coming to the new, top official levels.

Russian foreign affairs minister Lavrov, in today’s phone call with Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, openly admitted that Russia was blackmailing Ukraine with use of military aggression and war crimes against civilians.

In essence, Lavrov said that Russians might have not bombed Volnovakha, Donetsk, and Mariupol, if Ukrainian authorities had listened to Putin and did what he wanted.

In particular, as stated on the Russian MFA website, Lavrov said to Mogherini:

“It was underlined, that if Ukrainian authorities had accepted the proposal of President Putin of 15 January 2015 – to immediately withdraw heavy weapons from the line, fixed in the Minsk Memorandum of 19 September 2014, then the tragedies of Volnovakha, Donetsk, and Mariupol might not have happened”.

    THERE IS A LOT OF CENSORSHIP on the comments sections of Western media.

    For Example a russian troll wrote a commentary that UKRAINE is russia’s “backyard”.

    my answer to him was repeatedly deleted, but the russian troll’s comments were kept posted.

    A similar comment was also deleted from Kyiv Post.

    here is the deleted comment:

    russia ITSELF is just a BACKYARD…. a backyard to Ukraine
    and the rest of the civilized world.

    russia is shrinking now to its true status- a mafia banana republic on the
    level of Nigeria, nothing more.

    NATO is a FRIEND of the RUSSIAN PEOPLE because NATO BRINGS… AND… DEFENDS
    FREEDOM AND PROSPERITY- NATO has done that to ALL its members.

    NATO, however is an ENEMY TO GENOCIDAL DICTATORS, such as have been occupying
    the KREMLIN FOR 700 YEARS UP TO TODAY’S little mussolini punk putin.

    NATO IS A DEFENDER OF THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE.

    That is why the criminals putin lavrov yanukhovych et. al. hate NATO.

    These war criminals will all be brought to justice sooner or later.

    putin/lavrov HATE NATO because it is a FRIEND of the russian people and will
    rescue the russian people from their criminal regime which oppresses and
    impoverishes the russian people.

    putin wants power ONLY FOR HIS OWN EGO, NOTHING ELSE. Does he use his
    dictatorship to improve russia- to build up its economy and further its people?
    OF COURSE NOT.

    NATO IN RUSSIA means that these demonic oppressors cannot hold power over the
    russian people.

    NATO NEEDS TO BE ESTABLISHED NOT ONLY IN UKRAINE…but also in
    “russia.” It may take time, but the riff raff dictators ruling russia
    today will indeed be gone and russia will also be a part of NATO.

    UKRAINE was able to rise up and throw out the embezzling murderous trash
    yanukhovych, azarov etc.

    They are all hiding at putin’s,…from INTERPOL. PUTIN LAVROV ZACHARCHENKO,
    GIRKIN ETC WILL ALL BE ON INTERPOL’s LIST.

    IF UKRAINE HAS DONE IT- so might “russia” .

    ARISE RUSSIA TOO! ARISE! YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

    Throw out the murderous thieving trash sitting in your Kremlin and join the
    CIVILIZED WORLD.

    The Civilized world holds its arms WIDE OPEN TO WELCOME the russian people into
    freedom and prosperity!

      Kyiv Post blocked one of my posts too. There were no curse words. It was criticism of the EU. Considering they were accepting posts of gory video clips and useless bantering, it made no sense. They were, however, inundated with trolls, especially on war/violence articles.
