Following our post yesterday, showing what appeared to be a Ukrainian Su-25 firing rockets at a busy Lugansk city square and hitting the city administration building, there was much lively debate from both sides of the ideological and political divide whether this was a indeed the Ukraine military firing at its own people, albeit living in the east, or a provocation attempt by Lugansk militia to make it appear that the Kiev regime has taken the civil war to a new and very uncivil level. Moments ago the (somewhat) impartial OSCE laid any debate on the topic of where the rockets came from to rest. From Bloomberg:
- OSCE: ROCKETS FROM PLANE HIT LUHANSK ADMINISTRATION YESTERDAY
- OSCE SAYS NUMBER OF CASUALTIES FROM LUHANSK ROCKETS IS UNCLEAR
- OSCE SAYS LUHANSK ASSESSMENT BASED ON `LIMITED OBSERVATION'
- OSCE COMMENTS IN WEBSITE STATEMENT ON LUHANSK
For those who missed the latest bombing in this ever more deadly civil war, here it is again:
And now we eagerly await the wails of condemnation from the democratic West. After all, said West was so quick to blast comparable actions against Ukraine's people by its former, now deposed president. Or is there a double standard here?
