And what was it that Clarissa Ward was doing that got the propagandists so upset? Documenting Ukrainian paramedics as they deal with Russia's daily war crimes of targeting civilians and even the paramedics themselves.

Russian state media went after CNN’s chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward for reporting on the devastation from the invasion of Ukraine.

BBC journalist Francis Scarr reported that Ward was the target of the latest broadcast from Russian TV presenter Olga Skabeyeva.

In the video, which Scarr helpfully updated with subtitles, Skabeyeva likened the war in Ukraine to the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan: “Washington abandoned its local allies who then had to cling onto the chassis of American transport aircraft.”

“Back then, CNN propagandist Clarissa Ward managed to get out of Kabul,” Skabeyeva said. “Right now, Clarissa’s in the zone of our special operation and has already managed to come under some shelling. It’s not the best sign for Washington’s allies in Kyiv.”

Clarissa Ward understands what that meant, as do the rest of us.

And her colleague at CNN, Jake Tapper, registered his disgust.

Here is her report which so upset Putin's brownshirts.
