Thinking that Ukraine had agreed, or was about to agree, to be a neutral country, Russia pulled its troops out of the Kiev area. These troops had surrounded Kiev and occupied its suburbs. When the Russians left, a propaganda blitz erupted in the Western whore media and government councils that the Russians had been defeated and, angry at their defeat, slaughtered civilians, thus committing war crimes like the US committed in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Vietnam, etc.
The difference is that Washington is permitted to commit war crimes, because they are not really war crimes, just acts of promoting democracy.
Another difference is that Washington’s war crimes are real, whereas Russia’s are propaganda creations.
