I am normally very suspicious of Oliphant.
his idiot boss at the Telegraph wrote about Ukraine being "heavy handed" fighting against the Russian armed forces.
David Blair - total idiot.
But Oliphant seems to write an ok article here.
Another word of warning. Oliphant is very close to Shaun Walker - Russiaprofile - RIA - Guardian Ukraine hater, and Putin idolizer.
I have no doubt that Oliphant and Walker travelled to Ukraine together from Moscow a couple of days' ago. Via Belarus.
Volodymyr Viatrovych is erasing the country’s racist and bloody history — stripping pogroms and ethnic cleansing from the official archives.
By Josh Cohen. 02 May 2016.
One brief extract from a long article.
...Though his political star has continued to rise, Viatrovych’s integrity as a historian has been widely attacked within Western countries as well as by a number of respected historians in Ukraine. According to Jared McBride, a research scholar at the Kennan Institute and a fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, “the glorification of the OUN-UPA is not just about history. It’s a current political project to consolidate a very one-sided view within Ukrainian society that really only has a deep resonance within the western province of Galicia.”....
The arguments regarding the OUN - UPA will go on and on. And surrounding Bandera also.
Cohen, the author, of course, has his own agenda. He is Jewish.
Cohen is against helping Ukraine militarily -
" too risky" - but for whom? The USA, or Israel?
Cohen - former USAID worker - clearly has his own personal interests ...

He stressed that the "Buk" belongs to the Russian 53rd brigade.

Photo below of Buk 332. This piece of Russian military hardware, undoubtedly under the control of Russian soldiers from Kursk, killed 70 children, and over 200 adults.

And one man is ultimately responsible for this atrocity - the Russian commander in chief, Vladimir Putin.
