MOSCOW, January 19 /TASS/. It is inconvenient for Europe to show all the truth about the tragedy in south-eastern Ukraine. That is why criticizing Kiev’s policy is not standing high with Western media, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday, commenting on the Euronews TV channel’s coverage of the latest events in south-eastern Ukraine.
“Despite certain attempts by Euronews to make its reports more or less balanced, it is regretful that the coverage of the latest events in Ukraine, where the Kiev authorities have resumed a full-scale military operation against the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics in violation of all the ceasefire agreements, especially the September (2014) Minsk Protocol and the Memorandum, has been rather lopsided,” the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
“Civilian deaths caused by the shelling by Ukrainian army and the assessments of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine which is presenting new reports about the situation in eastern Ukraine are being hushed up,” the ministry said, adding that Euronews had practically ignored the conclusions contained in an OSCE report which had practically refuted the West’s hasty allegations that the militias were to blame for the recent bus shelling near Volnovakha.
Moscow believes that the problem is not that Euronews journalists are uninformed of what happened. The reason is that a meeting of the EU Council held at the level of foreign ministers started in Brussels on Monday, January 19.
“It is apparently inconvenient for Europe to tell all the truth about Ukraine and speak publicly about its causes. The criticism of Kiev’s policy is still not standing high,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
It added that the channel’s editorial policy looked particularly surprising against the background of the Kiev authorities’ attempts to shut down the Ukrainian version of Euronews.
