RT bending Facts – Inventing the Truth?


RT published an article today, “Snipers in Kiev Maidan leaders were hired – a telephone conversation Catherine Ashton and Foreign Minister of Estonia”, source, here

RT included a transcript of a conversation between EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, officials who discussed the situation in Ukraine. An audio conversation is played in a video and a transcript accompanies the video.

At only only one point does the conversation even remotely touch on snipers, and they say that they are a shame.

Paet:
He had a certain, so to speak, the confidence of the people on the Independence and civil society. And yet – and this is very frustrating … And Olga also talked about this … According to all available evidence, the people who were killed by snipers on both sides, and the police, and people in the street … We worked the same snipers killing people on both parties.

Most of the conversation regards finances, how to get aid, and so on.

C’mon, RT, you can do better than this.
