    This is now the 3rd cartoon that I’ve seen that has used the hammer/sickle symbol. I would have thought intelligent cartoonists like Morin & Auth would know better.

    But back to the cartoon:

    Russian vs. Ukrainian propaganda

    News programmes regularly refer to the Kiev protesters as “terrorists”, “insurgents” or “fighters”, and the rightwing and anti-Russian nature is emphasised. It is not just Russian media peddling the rumours. Opposition-minded channels in Ukraine have also been full of misinformation, although it is often a case of unverified rumours reported as fact."

    …just to get a different perspective:

    Western expansion /NATO’s expansion (or aggression)

    But I was struck these actual quotes of Crimeans:

    “You Brits don’t understand about fascism but we fought against Nazi Germany,” said a 62-year-old Simferopol resident, Viktor Varazin. “We know what fascism is and we will never let it take hold here. Thank God the Russians are here.”

    ‘Outside the Belbek airbase, an aggressive self-defence group said they were there to defend the base against “Kiev fascists”, but also railed against Europe, “full of repulsive gays and Muslims”.’

    “What you foreigners don’t get is that those people in Maidan, they are fascists,” said Alexander, a Simferopol resident drinking at a bar in the city on Monday night. “I mean, I am all for the superiority of the white race, and all that stuff, but I don’t like fascists.”

    Here’s a great idea lets hit the reset button for our policy with Russia. That will make them much nicer to everyone….
