It's terrible to look at vandalized holocaust memorials. But I can't follow the simplified formula of the author. At this stage it's impossible to identify the offenders. Extreme right wing Ukrainians has been frequently using Soviet symbols to delegitimize their political opponents (Pro-Russian nationalists and liberal Ukrainians as well). Above all we should think about the difficult situation of the Jewish minority in the Ukraine. In times of nationalist fever and upheaval the minorities become regularly the first victims. Regarding the current situation in the Eastern Ukraine any journalist should stay away from quick and comfortable deductions. The hatred digital warfare between Russia, Ukraine and the West doesn't need any additional fuel supply.
