Russian-Ukrainian War in the Discourse of Western Mass Media (2014-2016)

The Russian-Ukrainian war in southern and eastern Ukraine, which has been going on for more than 3 years, was preceded by the Revolution of Dignity (December 2013 - February 2014). It was the foreign mass media of early 2014 that paid special attention to it, publishing photos from the Maidan in Ukraine, providing various informational and analytical articles that highlighted the course of the confrontation and expressed hopes for change, reflection on values, appeals for introducing sanctions and resignation of the then President К Yanukovych, fears of the civil war and the Yugoslav scenario.

The Russian-Ukrainian conflict develops in the face of a systematic denial by the Russian Federation of its armed aggression. To a great extent, this doesn’t allow to clearly and unambiguously define the legal nature of the armed conflict, which results in a lack of its clear estimates from the Ukrainian society and the international community.

In September 2014, according to western media, politicians and experts, the situation in eastern Ukraine changed a little, as Kyiv was gradually losing control over vast territories in the east, occupied by pro-Russian militants. From now on, the Russian Federation is clearly perceived in the West as a direct initiator and participant of the conflict, having a decisive influence on its course. At the same time, there is growing awareness that it was the refusal of the United States and NATO to provide military assistance to Ukraine that contributed to such state of things. Currently, there is no expectation of rapid de-escalation in eastern Ukraine. There is a widespread opinion that Moscow is holding a course for freezing the conflict after the Transnistrian scenario.
