You're reading: Oksana Grytsenko: What drives the hate in eastern Ukraine

The anchors should also understand that the hundreds of people who rally day and night outside of the SBU headquarters also watch Ukrainian TV channels.

When they are shown as alcoholics and people on the margins of society, the more they talk about wanting to separate from Ukraine. And of course they start to hate any journalist who comes there from Kyiv. They do not allow them into their camp, which leads to more distorted TV stories.

Those in Kyiv who call on police to storm manned checkpoints on the entrance to Sloviansk in Donetsk Oblast should keep in mind that the people defending them, and who might be killed first are just plant workers or students, who don’t know how to use guns they are holding. And the criminals who handed over these guns to them are staying in much safer places.
