US denounces Russia's '10 false claims about Ukraine'

Russia's President Vladimir Putin speaks during his meeting with Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev and Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko in Putin's Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow, on March 5, 2014The US State Department sought the propaganda edge Wednesday evoking writer Dostoyevsky to denounce what it called Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “fiction: 10 false claims about Ukraine.” In a mounting war of words between the former Cold War foes, US and Russian officials have in recent days put out starkly different versions surrounding the deployment of Russian troops in Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula. Putin’s insistence that he had not sent troops into Ukraine drew incredulity from US Secretary of State John Kerry at a press conference Tuesday after his brief visit to Kiev to show support for the new interim government. But the Russian leader’s assertions that the ousting of president Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev was “an armed seizure of power” prompted the State Department Wednesday to publish what it called a “Fact Sheet” accusing Putin of ignoring or distorting reality.
