You're reading: Euronews’ selective news coverage

Against a background of legislative initiatives enabling the Cabinet of Ministers to restrict a whole range of social benefits, it is difficult to feel amused by the use of $140,000 from the state coffers on a supplement about Ukraine in the Washington Post.

It in no way compensates for the wasted money, of course, but at least readers of the American newspaper should be in no doubt about the freebie received. They may not know about the gaping divide between words and reality, but they know that they’re being “sold” Ukraine according to the same rules as when they’re sold this or that appliance.

Caveat emptor – let the buyer beware.
