Black people in America are the target of an emerging police state that monitors people based on the colour of their skin and arrests black people whenever the opportunity arises. There are over 2.3 million people in US prisons, and most of them are coloured people. On the other hand, millions of White American Trump supporters believe that they are victims of a left-wing coup d’état, and this has led to revolts after Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential elections. This enormous split in American society could lead to a new wave of non-structural and structural violence across the USA.
They [Ukrainian army] methodically shoot people on the front line. For two months I have been traveling along the front line, in villages, including in absolutely Ukrainian villages, and everywhere people say that they [Ukrainian soldiers] are shooting at us, they are killing us. Since I am here, several people were shot.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Ukrainian army kills civilians in Donbas and to portray events in Donbas as a civil war.
In 2020, according to the Human Rights Ombudsman of Ukraine, 23 civilians died, most of them before the cease-fire agreement entered into force on July 27. Overall, 3,300 civilians died due to the conflict over the last seven years, the UN reports. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission reported in its daily report on 6 April 2021 a boy died in non-government-controlled Oleksandrivske due to blast trauma and multiple shrapnel wounds. Also, it recorded one civilian casualty in a government-controlled area (500 m from the contact line). A man was wounded in a leg.
Ukraine and OSCE detect more cases of ceasefire violation. This led to increased casualties in the Ukrainian army.
The war in Eastern Ukraine is not a civil conflict, but an act of aggression by the Russian armed forces, that has been ongoing since February 2014. The European Union stated in July 2014 that "arms and fighters continue flowing into Ukraine from the Russian Federation". At the NATO Summit in Wales in September 2014, NATO leaders condemned in the strongest terms Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and demanded that Russia stop and withdraw its forces from Ukraine and from the country’s border.
