Let’s have a look at the Ukraine situation. The US Department of State has made another attempt to exonerate Kiev from responsibility for what's happening in eastern Ukraine. Jen Psaki, spokesperson for the United States Department of State, predictably accused Russia of failing to provide sufficient evidence confirming that Ukraine was indeed behind the July 13 cross-border mortar shelling in which a Russian citizen, a father of four, was killed.
We’ve received a lot of feedback on these developments:

"they are clearly showing that they downgrade relations with russia compare to ukraine, time for russia to make new friends and trust less these people"
Maya Herzl added:
"[Ukraine] can choose its own way but cannot kill its people, call its civilians terrorists and bomb entire villages with the agreement of EU. They accept nazi organizations and exalt the nazi period with banderas and his friends. On one hand we celebrate the end of the 2 world war and [on the other] we endorse this kiev regime."
Harvey Munshaw suggested:
"Moscow is the one showing restraint. Oh well, this what the Obama administration gets for supporting the Detroit of Europe."

"The liberating power of the internet has made the controlled media impotent,” adding a quote by Julian Assange: “This generation is burning the mass media to the ground. We are reclaiming our rights to world history."
Flanko Fin Barr chimed in:
"USA has no right to say this. they are arming their police force with military gear. that tells me that of course they dont see a murder as an offence, because in the future and at present they do that in their country all the time its the norm. If I had a say I would say green light Russia. go in there and pacify the violence. ..people tell me well they are Russians in Ukraine, and my answer is, well because the people speak Russian don't make them Russian., its like Switzerland. they have different regions and one speaks Italian,the others Speak German . and last of all French. yet they are all Swiss."
Meanwhile, NATO, visibly shaken by the effectiveness of Russia's information campaign during the Ukrainian crisis, is now looking for ways to counter Russia's media campaign over Ukraine, the Financial Times reported earlier this week with reference to Adam Thompson, the UK Ambassador to NATO.
Russia's tactics in the information standoff over Ukraine has caught NATO member states by surprise, he told the newspaper, adding that the events in Crimea and eastern Ukraine were accompanied by media pressure on pro-Western organizations.
