The Trade Unions House was set on fire by pro-Kiev radicals after they surrounded and destroyed the tent camp of anti-government activists that stood in front of the building on Odessa’s Kulikovo Field Square. It was torched in a storming attempt after some of the anti-Maidan activists rallying in the square barricaded themselves inside the building.
What is interesting to me is how the US, at least within our borders (under our bubble), manages to distance itself from this violence, just like it has from the massive violence against Syria since 2011. Russian President Putin makes no bones, saying the US is orchestrating everything. The possibility – even the possibility – is never broached on our state-controlled news media in any its thousands of outlets. Such control of information is impressive.
