How British, German, and US media cover Crimea’s annexation and the Donbas war

By Rens Wilderom, for VoxUkraine This article investigates how British newspapers covered Crimea’s annexation and the Donbass war. It shows that initially an “international conflict frame” was used as the dominant way to interpret Crimea’s annexation, which in about three months was succeeded by a “local conflict frame,” then used as the most prevalent way to make sense of the enduring Donbass war.

Fake: Ukraine Legalizes Violence. Private Armies to Fight in Donbas

The recent registration of a draft law in the Ukrainian parliament outlining military consulting activities has caused an avalanche of fakes in Russia’s pro-Kremlin press.

The Ukraine-Russia Paris Meeting Through the Russian Propaganda Lens
