Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Verkhovna Rada fires Human Rights Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova

If the HR headline is at all mentioned, certainly not the spread of disinformation about rape by Russian soldiers is explained. Definitely no retraction of headlines nor is it mentioned in the section "Fake News". So sad and adds to the incredulity of other news items in Western media.

Ukraine Official Fired Over Handling of Russian Sexual Assault Claims

The move to dismiss Denisova came after outrage about the wording used in public reports about alleged sexual assaults committed by Russians, as well as the alleged dissemination in those reports of unverified information. Despite accusations from Ukraine, the Kremlin has repeatedly denied that Russian soldiers have committed war crimes or sexual assaults during the invasion.

Last week, Ukrainian media outlets and journalists signed an open letter in which they requested that reports concerning rape and sexual assault be "published with caution," particularly when involving children, according to an English translation of the letter.

The open letter also stated that "it is important to understand that sexual crimes during war are an instrument of genocide, an instrument of waging war without rules, but they cannot serve as illustrative material to inflame the emotions of the audience."
