The mainstream media, assisted by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) monitoring mission in eastern Ukraine, is pushing a rough propaganda about the current escalation in the region of Donbass.
According to the maisntream media, the Kiev regime and its forces became victims of big bad Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) forces, backed by Russia. These reports push an idea of violations of the ceasefire and even offensive actions by DPR forces in the industrial area of Avdeevka near Donetsk.
In turn, reports from the ground show that the Ukrainian Armed Forces and pro-Kiev paramilitary groups launched a large-scale operation against DPR forces on January 28. Furthermore, the Ukrainain Defense Ministry officially announced that the UAF were advancing.
The photo below was made by a local in Avdeevka on February 1, 2017. It shows two battle tanks of the UAF deployed to the village for an offensive operation against DPR forces near Donetsk. The photo also shows two cars of the OSCE monitoring mission near the battle tanks.
However, nobody can observe an OSCE statement about a clear violation of the ceasefire regime by the Kiev regime from the OSCE. In turn, the mainstream media continues to blame DPR forces and Russia.
