The Times has annoyed Kiev after describing the prolonged conflict in Ukraine as a “civil war.” Ukraine’s embassy in the UK rushed to slam the paper and remind the world that Kiev supposedly fights “Russian aggression.” “Correct article immediately!” the embassy demanded in a scathing tweet, accusing one of the leading British newspapers of inexcusable political amnesia. “It is unfortunate we have to remind The Times… that there is no civil war in Ukraine but a direct Russian aggression,” the tweet said. The Ukrainian diplomats did not just stop there and also claimed that courageous Ukrainian soldiers, who have been allegedly repelling nothing less than an outright invasion by the big scary Russians, are now still fighting a staggering 40,000 members of the Russian army. They never bothered to provide proof to substantiate their claims, though.
