Frank Libertas was in Kiev during the Maidan-revolte in February 2014 en this inspired him to write down his experiences and personal observations what really happened behind the scene. In this complex geopolitical forcefield the tensions were rising so high that Frank seriously feared for a total escalation between NATO and Russia, which was later confirmed by president Putin. On July 17th 2014 the MH17 airplane of Malaysian Airways was shot down above the Eeastern part of Ukraine and this costed 298 people their lives. Frank immediately knew that this was for sure no well planned terroristic act. A few days before this disaster a cargo-plane of the type Antonov was shot down in the same Donetz-area at great hight. Frank was flabbergasted that the autorities of Ukraine did not shut down this airspace for passenger-planes after this incident. Frank compared in this bundle some social-economic and historical themes in Kiev with that of the Netherlands and he reached surprising conclusions about double standards, propaganda and blunt hypocracy. Why did Dutch authorities did not speak of a tragic incident, which it was but used the term terroristic act instead from the start.
