Nuland blasts Russian 'reign of terror' in eastern Ukraine

The top US diplomat for Europe has accused Russia of unleashing “unspeakable violence and pillage” in eastern Ukraine which she said is living under “a reign of terror.”

“Even as Ukraine is building a peaceful, democratic, independent nation across 93 percent of its territory, Crimea and parts of eastern Ukraine are suffering a reign of terror,” Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday.

“Today Crimea remains under illegal occupation and human rights abuses are the norm, not the exception, for many at risk groups there,” she added in her testimony

Nuland said the Ukrainian conflict was “manufactured” by the Kremlin, fueled by “Russian tanks and heavy weapons,” and “financed at Russian taxpayers’ expense.”

Kiev and the West have repeatedly accused Moscow of fueling the crisis in Ukraine by sending weapons and troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces there, an accusation denied by the Kremlin.
