RT is the worse inflammatory and biased we came across on You Tube. When it comes to the current event in Ukraine, RT’s activities have nothing to do with journalism but with ordinary information pornography. It’s the same kind of junk as those of its counterpart in the US (Fox News) who give journalism a bad name.
Why these two videos?
RT seems not quite really to know what building they are reporting about. First it is a parliament while weeks later it is the Interior Ministry.
About the 2nd video:
The incident about gunmen who attacked the building? Yes, there were gunmen but not from Kiev or elsewhere in Ukraine. We have that footage RT doesn’t show you. And, we find out that it was too well organized, too professional. It was a 100 % a operation. Military operation in civil clothes. Too disciplined. To us? Russian commandos who indeed attacked overnight. However, it didn’t take place on March 1, 2014 but 5 days earlier!
You can watch in our 1 hour witness video filled with footage, including that “famous”security cam video RT is talking about but not shows this report.
The missing security cam video can be watched here: http://youtu.be/4UBadP8PqT4 as part of a 1 hour video to give the viewer a idea what really might have happened.
The use of the two RT videos is in line with the international law on copyrights and is within the frame of the Bern Convention as well as having the right to use the material for educational purposes. In this case/post: journalism on the internet
BACKGROUND about PUTIN’S CRIMEA INVASION
Crimea and Russia have a long history. It dates back to tsar Peter The Great as he was one of the first Russian rulers who have had a fleet there.
But, it is not not about history as pro-Russians in Crimea seems to believe. It’s about something different.
Putin’s long life desire is a union like the European Union. But he needs Ukraine to forfill his union dream as the country is the largest and most strategic of all other countries which are already part of the no-name union. Countries which rarely do trading with the European Union..
When Yanukovych almost reached a close deal with the EU, Putin saw his dream going up in smoke. So, he started to pressure the Ukrainian president economically which forces Yanukovych to into the Russian bear’s claws.
That have led into a months long protest, the fleeing of Yanukovych and finally the invasion of Crimea by Putin to secure the Black Sea Fleet.
Now, Putin launches the same campaign he have used in South Ossetia in 2008: giving all pro-Russian Crimeans a Russian passport so that he can give himself a excuse that his troops are on the island to protect these people.
On March 1, 2014 Putin’s request to the Duma to use military force on Ukraine soil has been approved. However, Crimea does not belong to Russia. Russia only have a contract for using parts of Crimea such as airport and a few harbors which has been extended to 2042 in return for gas price reduction.
But, even when there is a new government, Russia must oblige itself to the gas contract but it is considering to review it. If Moscow plans to do so then Kiev have the right to reconsider the contract for the use of places in Crimea by Russia.
Moscow also have signed the 1992 Agreement which guarantees the sovereignty of the State of Ukraine. That agreement has now been violated by the approval by the Russian Duma. No country have the right to vote over the right to act in another country. Not the United States, not even Russia. Only when a country ask one of them for help.
Well, Ukraine did not ask Russia for help because it is namely the cause of all the problems in Ukraine since November 2013.
What the world doesn’t realize is that we all are witnessing a bad looser at play: Putin.
