Possibly because if the West reported on every little propaganda fabrication we'd never see anything else? A similar genocide-themed 'story' had come out a few month before this one: http://www.examiner.com/article/russian ... s-genocide, so we're getting tired of them now. The fact they are all faked is hardly surprising. That we in the West don't feel the need to dignify them with coverage is just as unsurprising.
Well, you have a speech talking about resettlement which is twisted by minor pro-Russian media outlets into meaning concentration camps and extermination. This interpretation is really stretching credibility. The equating the Ukraine with the Nazis is not new - Moscow has been doing it from the beginning (despite the irony that Putin's actions have far more in common with Hitler's that the Ukraine's). I guess when your moral standing is as low as Moscow's you are going to try anything to gain some high ground.
Then you have a dark video purporting to show something. It doesn't. There is no clue as to who is involved, where or when it happened, or whether it is staged or not. You can't just grab a piece of video and use it as evidence when it plainly shows nothing that can be checked, proved or supported elsewhere.
After the 'photo' of MH-17, nothing coming from Moscow or Moscow's propaganda organs can be taken at face value.
