One Citizen's Opinion

Regardless of political position, everyone agrees Ukraine is in crisis of potentially international proportions.

Western corporate media reporting on Ukraine appears to focus attention on the protest movement, while failing to report all known facts.  Without having all known facts on the table, there is a real risk of reaching the wrong conclusion, based on incomplete reporting.
