In light of #MH17 accusations today, I'd like to remind you of a forgotten - but very relevant - story from the Bosnian War. (THREAD)
On September 3, 1992, an Italian G-222 turboprop plane, supplying humanitarian aid to Sarajevo, was shot down between Kiseljak and Konjic. This was territory controlled by Bosnian Croats, and there were local media reports of militia boasting they did it.
But because this did not fit the Narrative, the incident was blamed on Bosnian Serb aircraft, and the UN passed Resolution 781, creating a no-fly zone over Bosnia.

Wrote this for Kyiv Post about #Ukraine's new language law, how it is viewed in #Donbas #Donbass and tangled history of Russian and Ukrainian languages in region. THREAD kyivpost.com/article/opinio…
2/ With language law, we need to look at both rights/preferences of modern Donbas Ukrainians and question of historical justice. The two don't overlap perfectly. Case for state promotion of Ukrainian after decades of coercive Soviet language policy is strong
3/ Aggressive promotion of Ukrainian in Donbas per "indiginization" policy and mild thaws in language policy in late Soviet period do not compensate for national terror and destruction of Ukrainian rural life w/collectivization, famine or late Soviet marginilization of language

1 SERVITORE DI PRIVATBANK (thread)
Domenica sera, salvo sorprese (che in un paese cangiante come l' #Ucraina sono sempre possibili) Kiev saluterà il suo sesto presidente eletto: il comico Volodymir #Zelenskj, che ha costruito il suo successo sulle campagne anti corruzione.
2 Chi è #Zelensky? Dietro la sua fortuna politica si staglia la figura del proprietario del "Canale 1+1" la piattaforma per cui l' attore ha girato "servitore del popolo", la serie TV che l'ha lanciato sulla scena politica: l' oligarca Igor #Kolomoisky
3 Chi segue le vicende ucraine conosce bene Kolomoisky: si tratta dell' ex proprietario della maggiore banca del paese #Privatbank, che nel 2014, con il #Maidan, si associò al golpe ottenendo l' investitura a governatore della strategica città #Dnepropetrovsk.

New KMIS #Poll : 51% of residents of #Ukraine support and 38% oppose giving autonomy for the separatist-controlled part of #donbas if this would be needed to end the war and resolve this #conflict peacefully. #Donbass kiis.com.ua/?lang=ukr&cat=…
New KMIS #Poll : 54% of residents of Ukraine oppose blocking of #Russian TV channels in #Ukraine, while 32% support such political #Censorship. Similarly, 60% oppose ban on many performers and films from #Russia, while 28% support such political ban. kiis.com.ua/?lang=ukr&cat=…
The KMIS poll shows that views of most Ukrainians on these issues are more liberal and democratic than views of most Ukrainian politicians and many intellectuals, who publicly claim to support democracy, freedom, and European values but in fact act in the opposite way.

The human price of the Russian invasion of Ukraine: #UN statistic on the casualties in the #Donbass conflict zone in east #Ukraine: 13,000+ people killed and 30,000+ people wounded between April 2014 and January 2019. tyzhden.ua/News/225735
We are pretty sure Russia invading Ukraine created havoc in Ukraine, call us old fashion, but common sense is still a virtue we aspire to maintain.

.@washingtonpost made gross mistake (or #fakenews?) citing Amb Antonov on the referendum issue. At the @ValdaiClub talk WP referring to Antonov said "#Ukrainian issue was discussed”(not "#Donbass referendum" issue), adding"not all details shld be revealed"
wapo.st/2muzQar?tid=ss…
This mistake (or, again, was it intentional #fakenews frill?) set a line of reports that "#Russia reveals..." which is not the case. The info was allegedly LEAKED by two Rus diplomats to @business
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
The proposal on #Donbass appears to have indeed been made by #Putin,the info was not supposed to be disclosed until #Trump discussed it with his team. One may not like the proposal itself, but that it's now disclosed is bad for solution of the issue,courtesy of presidential talks
