NEW YORK, February 10. /TASS/. CNN on Monday labeled the Ukrainian forces conducting the armed operation in the south-east of the country as the "pro-US troops".
The ticker line saying "Obama considers arming pro-US troops" was kept on the screen for several minutes during a newscast devoted to Obama’s meeting with German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Participants in the news show discussed, among other things, whether or not Washington should furnish the pro-Kiev forces in Ukraine with lethal weapons.
The editors’ blunder was immediately noticed by audiences who started sharing the screenshot in social networks. Some comments referred to it as a "Freudian slip".
Obama said at a joint news conference with Merkel earlier in the day he hoped the crisis in Ukraine would be settled diplomatically and the situation would not go as far as supplies of arms.
He confirmed along with it he had instructed his aides to scrutinize a possibility of such supplies to Ukraine if the diplomatic efforts flopped.
