The Strip: Pro-Russian Protestors Did NOT Burn Themselves Alive

The front page of The Wall Street Journal today reports, “A Ukraine inquiry said a deadly fire in an Odessa building was likely started by pro-Russian rebels who accidentally dropped Molotov cocktails.” Inside, The Journal makes a full report,* but fails to mention that the official story is in serious dispute, with evidence suggesting an orchestrated effort on the part of pro-Kiev operatives to escalate the crisis.

I had to watch this video twice to understand what it was explaining, but it was worth it.
