FFS MIND THE GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATIONS. ARE YOU PRO RUSSIA OR ANTI RUSSIA. AT LEAST PUT A PERIOD(FULL STOP) AFTER RUSSIA.

P.S Check out Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss. Hardly comprehensive but has enough to stop you looking the fool.

I can see two occurrences of the name “Russia”, one in the headline and one in the body of the article. Each is, quite correctly, followed by a comma.

What are you talking about?

Read the headline quickly as one sentence. The comma after Crimea is a break (as a comma does) but the next part reads as if Russia killed so many people. They didn’t as we would both know, but glancing the head line it reads as if they have. If Russia was removed from the headline or a full stop/exclaimation mark put after Russia it would create another pause and make the killing a separate statement and not in a direct relation to Russia. The article would be the clarifier. Other than that it is a good article and a clear… Read more »

You are correct. A simpler approach would be to simply delete “Russia” and put the period after “Crimea” instead of the comma. Most readers know Crimea is in Russia.

Girl! Communication is key, especially in tragedy and every so often grammar and syntax in critical to that meaning. The headline reads as if Russia is at fault which is opposite to reality. The meaning is lost through poor grammar and liable to sow confusion when clarity is key. That’s why I jumped. If the story was some gossip piece, such grammar could be excused as bait, but I take The Duran to be trying for a more professional standard. In any case I’m chill 🙂

CIA again, like Zakharchenko? I hope Russia finds ways to put a stop to these frightful acts of cynical violence.

You really need a comma after “Russia” in the headline.

You really need a “?” after Russia? 😉 🙂

Apparently this tragedy is a result of a “lone gunman” not terrorism,sounds eerily similar to Columbine in the US as RT has just reported.
While its currently still under investigation,the area around the Parliament in Westminster in the UK is now on lockdown after a reported blast of some kind.
Perhaps totally unrelated but an odd coincidence nonetheless,don’t you think?

Yes, very coincidental… need to learn more.

Murderous, corrupt Kiev and it’s sick-minded ZioNazi-US terror-backers again – probably wanted to murder some more journalists like ISISrael, the perverted Saudis, them two-faced Turks and US’A-hole’ always do. Reminds me of of when Kiev maliciously and sneakily downed MH17.
