This is propaganda meant to create an illusion of a divided public. Most in eastern Ukraine do not trust the new Kiev coup government, a puppet of the US but with a Trojan Horse of fascist leaders embedded.

This reminds me of how the US oligarchs (like the KOch bros) use propaganda to create the illusion that there is a scientific debate about global warming. Confuse and distract; divide and conquer.

That is the function of the Voice of America....but fewer and fewer are buying the propaganda.
