Putin Growls; the crass stupidity of Western media on Ukraine

There could be an almost infinite number of ways to portray the Russian government's disappointment over the fact that Petro Poroshenko has chosen to abrogate the cease-fire and ramp up the violence in Ukraine.

Putin disappointed.

Putin saddened.

Putin disturbed... etc.

Instead, we get Putin growls.

That's journalism with an agenda, and the agenda is obviously to demonize Putin, whose crime was to call for an extension of the cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, a crime in which his co-conspirators were Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel.

Poroshenko was obviously open to the idea of extending the cease-fire as recently as yesterday. Who prevailed upon him to change his mind?
