Declarations raise fresh questions over extent of corruption

Embarrassed members of Ukraine’s parliament have given up a pay rise to try to defuse public anger after an exercise in transparency revealed they held hundreds of millions of dollars of assets from expensive cars to prized works of art.

However, revelations of the scale of some MPs’ wealth — with one declaring ownership of a church and others revealing antiques and extensive property holdings — shocked the public and sparked fresh questions about the extent of potential corruption.

A representative of one of Ukraine’s western financial backers said some of the declarations appeared “absolutely scandalous — there are people who have not worked … declaring millions in cash and property”................

Russia claims a deadly Syrian school bombing was a “fabrication.” But the evidence says otherwise
A deadly airstrike on a school complex in rebel-held Hass, Syria, last week killed at least 35 people, including 22 children and six teachers. Both France and the U.S. quickly condemned the strike and pinned the blame on Russia or Syrian government forces.

Now an independent investigation of the incident published Monday by Russia-based Conflict Intelligence Team bolsters that charge, saying the bombing did indeed happen and was likely carried out by Syrian government air forces or possibly Russia.

But the CIT report went even further, and concluded that “the analysis of the event presented by the Russian Ministry of Defense is at best superficial and at worst constitutes a deliberate attempt to present misinformation to the Russian public and the world.”

The attack drew widespread condemnation and was the latest in a string of alleged atrocities that saw Russia voted off the United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday.

“This is a tragedy. It is an outrage. And if deliberate, it is a war crime,” UNICEF director Anthony Lake said at the time. UNICEF added that Wednesday’s bombing was likely the deadliest attack on a school since the war broke out in Syria in early 2011.

Russia, for its part, denied any responsibility for Wednesday’s airstrike and accused Western media of sharing video footage and images that were “doctored up” and fake. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov questioned whether airstrikes had been carried out on the school complex at all, citing images showing the school roof intact and furniture unmoved by a “blast wave.”................
