Some Russian media have been engaged in what appears a coordinated media war to justify Russian’s military intervention in Crimea. They are presenting it as if people of Ukraine are “begging” Russians to step in and protect them. However, most of the time the same so-called “beggars” are participating in those protests across Ukraine. Or you can just say “However, most of the time the same people are participating in those protests across Ukraine.” I wrote so-called “beggars” for more dramatization. It’s up to you how you would like to leave it.
March 1, 2014. Pro- Russian protest in Kharkiv
March 3rd, Simferopol. The same women that participated in a protest in Kharkiv (see photos above) were calling themselves “worried inhabitants of the city of Odessa,” who came to support the Russian intervention against threat from what are portrayed as Kiev’s “fascist” new leaders.
