MOSCOW, October 17 (RIA Novosti) – The events in the east of Ukraine are not reported accurately in the United States, and Russia is being blamed by the US government and press without any evidence, New York director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation (NAPF) Alice Slater told RIA Novosti Friday.
"We should be clearing up the events that occurred in the Ukraine as the corporate dominated media in the US doesn't report events accurately and Russia is being blamed by our government and press without evidence," Slater said.
"I think Russia should bring this up in the Security Council and in the First Committee of the UN that is meeting this week and next week. Let's get all the facts out on the table," she added.
The NAPF director noted that right now there is a "push from the military industrial complex and the unregulated corporations to make an enemy of Russia over Ukraine".
Relations between Russia and the West began to deteriorate dramatically over the Ukrainian crisis. The United States, the European Union and their allies kept accusing Russia of meddling in Ukraine's internal affairs, sending its troops to the country and even went as far as to claim that Moscow planned to invade Ukraine.
None of these statements, however, were supported with any evidence.
