A Silly Blunder or Back to the Future? CNN Annexes Ukraine to Russia / Sputnik International

The US broadcaster CNN has given the world another riddle: what did it actually mean by marking Russia and Ukraine as one territory on a map, with the Russian national flag obscuring most of Ukraine, when illustrating what it called “Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine?”
CNN is once again in the spotlight over misinformation regarding Ukraine. Having just apologized for calling the Ukrainian National Guard “pro-US troops”, the channel has committed another gaffe.

This time, in its report on what it called “Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine,” it seemed to portray the two countries as one contiguous territory: a presenter stands in front of a map where the countries of Europe are in dark green and separated by light green borders, except for Russia and Ukraine, which are both in light green with a large Russian flag obscuring the supposed boundary between them.

The broadcast was about three “dire challenges” the European leaders are facing, including “the diplomatic and military crisis in the East created by Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine”.

Perhaps the channel is in “dire” need of a better graphics team, which could draw the two countries as distinctly separate, and without a Russian national flag covering most of Ukraine's territory.

Or were the graphics intentional?

Talka notes: Either CNN is totally incompetent (Certainly a distinct likelihood), or this is all planned. This example, placing Ukraine on a map near Pakistan, placing Sloviansk in Crimea, while calling Ulan Bator Ukraine's capital.
