A brief statement by a director from the Information Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation said this action was taken because of the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.

    Humanitarian crimes like this expose the hypocrisy of Nato and the EU, particularly the latter, which allow such crimes to be committed in its own backyard. After the horrors of the two world wars and the passing of the Human Rights Act, which was to prevent such things ever happening again, one would have thought such crimes as bursting a dam would never occur.
    But it did, together with mass murder and the kidnapping of children which occurs on a daily basis. All this to support a failed Russian oligarch fighting for survival of office. This senseless war started (again) over the age old disputed territory of Crimea, a dispute in which the UK were involved in way back in 1854 during which hundreds of British soldiers were slaughtered in a few minutes in a heroic but foolish act brought about by a misunderstanding of instructions
    Such a territorial dispute (which will never be resolved) was a convenient excuse for Putin to bolster his failing popularity. Putin will do anything to save himself, including drowning hundreds of innocent civilians and destroying crops and industry.
    Ukraine has always suffered under Russian domination. The last genocide was under Stalin who, in order to convince the people that his first 5 year agricultural plan was working, laid seige to Ukraine, cut it off from the outside, and stole all its wheat. Millions died from starvation, more than died in the gas ovens of the Germans a few years earlier. Yet this genocide is still not officially remembered world wide. Again due to the cowardice and hypocrisy of the UN and the EU.
