    Hello,

    You reported today about the historical D- day. The sound effects behind the interwievs of old veterans were very loud.
    They very often are! Please take into consideration that there are millions of wievers who cannot hear so well – or even have difficulties in hearing, for exempel tinnitus. Could you produce more news with clear speech without the SOUNDS or music? I understand very well English though I am a Finn, but I assume that many non-British wievers would appreciate MORE clear text.

    Best regards, Hannu Mitts

    Dear Hannu,
    Useful feedback, thank you. We will look into it. Head of English Service

    NATO and the official Kiev believes that Russia is obliged to return the Crimea in Ukraine. And you ask residents of the Crimea. Want-whether they choose to return to Ukraine? About 90% of Crimean residents will vote to remain part of Russia. But if the US and Europe and Kyiv are not interested in the opinion of our respondents, it means that in these countries there is no democracy, but there is a totalitarian regime. Moreover, now this totalitarian regime in Europe and the United States resembles communism in the USSR. There is no freedom of speech. There is no objective news coverage. Who against the regime of these States they is the terrorists and separatists. Crimea is home to 80% of Russians. Historically, Crimea has always been considered Russian. But if Russia will try to give Crimea, people of Crimea will start a war as it is now in the South-East of Ukraine. When Russia annexed Crimea, she did it correctly on all legal norms. The fact that these norms are not recognized now by the European countries and the USA is stupid. The law on Russia’s side. And this is a fact! And the statements of Western and European politicians about this sound silly, too. And Russia will never give the Crimea to Ukraine. It is necessary to take for granted. And you have to be very reasonable politician to understand it and don’t start a new war. Hope you will post it my opinion on your website. (of course, if you are democratic media).

    Dear euronews,
    I assumed your news channel as reliable and trustable origin of information but now I’m really disappointed by your position. From one point, you state your credo as (cite): “At euronews we believe in people’s intelligence and think that our duty is to give you the right amount of information so you can form your own opinion about the world. News is not a matter of having preconceptions. Our role is to broadcast reality and deliver reliable news, real news, pure news.”
    The same time, comparing the same article provided in different languages, I see a lot of differences not only in representation but even in information!!
    As example, let’s have a look at the same article “Ukrainian military helicopter shot down during fresh fighting near Slovyansk” in English, in Russian and in Ukranian. Russian version tell us about brave rebels, who successfully defend their homes and even shoot down helicopter, and about barbarous actions of Ukranian military forces, who use “Grad’ against civilians and forbid childs to be evacuated. English version is about four international observers from the OSCE who are captured by bad pro-Russian militiamen (and, by the way, helicopter was shoot down and citizens are fleeing away….)
    Ukranian version … well, it is stated that brave and victorious Ukranian militaries smash pro-Russian bandits, who traitorously attacked and hit Ukranian helicopter. Moreover, it is said that cruel terrorists shoot in civilians and do not allow them to leave Slovyansk, whilst Ukranian army opens corridors to get civilians away.

    Well, I don’t think I can trust you further if your position, like a weathercock, depends on the reader’s point.

    Dear viewer, As a multilingual, multicultural news organisation our credibility lies in our neutrality to a much greater extent than it does with other international media and we take these issues very seriously. You should know that our stories are not a direct translation from an original text. They are written by journalists in their own idiom but to a very strict briefing and in accordance with clear editorial principles and objectives. Throughout the Ukraine crisis we have been particularly assiduous in applying these standards and with regard to that it would be very useful if you could provide us with information about the particular story to which you refer. Even in relation to the Slovyansk incident we have had a very large amount of stories and in order to follow up your comments it would be very useful to know when and in what context (web, TV, news, analysis etc) the story appeared. If you have this information please let us know. Head of English Service

    I would like to give you some feedback about the term you used in your articles.

    I would like to advise you against using the phrase “e/Eastern Europe”. It is an extremely loaded term, a shortcut for historical Eastern Bloc (if capitalised), and a geographical term (if non-capitalised), but both are confused.

    The first tirm has died out naturally after the Cold War, and the other describes countries east to Europe’s midpoint, which does not include Visegrád countries.

    Many people in Visegrád countries (also called Central Europe), including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia Poland, get extremely offended when called either.

    This is due to a myriad of reasons- (mostly: shared culture – notably architecture, customs, cuisine, Latin alphabet and Indo-European languages; identity; even religion: Western Christianity).

    Geographucally, however, the centre of gravity of the continent of Europe is either near Vilnius, Lithuania (according to the French National Geographic Institute) and the geographical midpoint is in Vitebsk, Belarus (according to an equivalent institute in Russia; not far away from the one near Vilnius). Many people tend to forget that European part of Russia is 40% of all European landmass.

    Visegrád nations are geographically in western Europe. Nevertheless, what we call Central European nations (Poles, Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks in particular, as well as Germans and Austrians) like the terms c/Central Europe for cultural (shared history over centuries) and geographic reasons (in the context of their identities and melting pot nature and shared elements of culture), taking advantage of the vagueness of the term.

    I recommend you a video on that matter in the Economist: http://www.economist.com/blogs/easternapproaches/2012/07/%E2%80%9Ceast%E2%80%9D-dead .

    Also, a Ted speech (starts at 0:40): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcTOSxcv2_o .

    I hope all of that helps to improve the quality of your articles.

    LIBYA ; A COUNTRY DOOMED TO FAIL BECAUSE OF ITS INJUSTICES.

    Good Afternoon euronews…............................,

    If there is a country more backwarded in North Africa these days,then it is Libya.Libya has become
    a failed state,and most Americans and Western Europeans who have a long-sightedness in Libyan
    affairs agree with this fact.
    As a person living in a cursed country like Libya,one thing for sure that has to be said,is that the
    17th of February 2011 revolution has deviated from its true course,which aimed at buidling a new
    democratic egalitarian state.Libya has bcome a failed state because of its stark injustices,and which are hidden from most Western medias.
    The presence of militias roaming here and there in Libya,and their control of politics is an insult to
    every patriotic Libyan.There is no such thing as a Libyan army in Libya,because the late tyrant
    disentegrated it following the Chad War.The so-called Libyan army then, was divided into phalanges
    each headed by a stooge of the late backwarded regime,and it was these phalanges which fought
    the revolutionaires in 2011.The reality is that when the head of the regime faced his fate on the 20th
    of October 2011,most of the true revolutionaires returned to their previous jobs,and in their place
    came militias composed of former prison inmates,like drug addicts and former criminals.
    We call on you euronews to have an investigative journalistic approach towards Libya,and not to
    report on the surface.
    There is no Western investigative journalism in Libya.One other eroding disease in Libya,and which
    has become a phenemonen is corruption,and amongst the most corruptive sectors is the Libyan
    banking sector.

    The closing of oil-ports by Cyrenaican militias is a menace.While the United States and Western
    Europe watched,and did not react,it is of the utmost importance to euronews,that Libyan salaries
    and wages depend on the export of oil. Libya,once again is a failed state.The menace of the criminal militias in Tripoli,and the weakness
    of the National General Congress in controlling them,along with theft,smuggling and other many
    evils dominating Libyan life,urges euronews to shed light more on Libyan issues.The presence
    of illegal immigration from sub-Saharan Africa is another big danger.
    In the absence of a proper state,the abduction of diplomats has become an insult.The abduction of
    two diplomats from the Tunisian Embassy,and their unknown fate,is an insult to the neighbourhood
    which bounds Libyans and Tunisians together,but now it is clear to everyone that Libyans do not respect even their neighbours.The Libyans have become an abhorred people.
    As always thank you very much euronews.

    Ultra-right nationalists (opposes Russia) kill people in Odessa. Who is to blame? It is Russia! The Ukrainian army storming of Ukrainian cities and killing civilians. Who is to blame? It is Russia! The new Ukrainian government has not fulfilled any of the signed Treaty. Who is to blame? It is Russia! What is it? It’s just stupidity ES and USA or the begin of the cold war? OK! In America was a tornado. In Greece and Spain were demonstrations against plans of their governments. So it is the blame of Russia! Therefore, it is urgent to enter against Russia’s new sanctions. Don’t you think that the world has gone mad or stupid people govern us?

    ABOUT THE CRIME OF RE-ELECTING ABDULAZIZ BOUTAFLIKA IN ALGERIA.

    Good Afternoon euronews…....................,

    It came more like an expected shock that the frail and abhorrent president of Algeria,has been re-
    elected for a fourth time.We all knew beforehand that the 17th of April presidential elections will not
    come up with surprises,but we must remember that Algeria since its independence from France on the 3rd of July 1962,never experienced a truly democratic elected president.We stand with those handful group of Algerians,who were shown by euronews demonstrating against the re-election of Boutiflika in Algiers,and who were later handcuffed by the Algerian police and thrown into police vans
    an insult to anyone watching euronews.
    The “Front de Libération Nationale “ -the National Liberation Front,has become an abhorrent political
    party in Algeria.It has ruled Algeria since Algeria’s independence and has become one of the oldest dominating political parties in the developping World.It rules Algeria through the historical
    legitimacy that it was behind the 1st of November 1954 revolution that ended French colonial rule
    on the 3rd of July 1962.For this reason it legitimizes itself to rule Algeria.
    Many Algerians inside Algeria and abroad,want to see a day when the F.L.N ,is ousted from power
    once and for all,by a new oppositionist political party.Algeria will not advance forward under the rule
    of the F.L.N.Neither a coalition with another Algerian political party would be a solution.
    The U.S- based “ Democracy Index” lists Algeria as an authoritarian regime,and it is quite right.
    Neither the U.S nor the European Union released any press reactions to the Algerian presidential
    elections or the the fourth re-election of Boutiflika as president.
    The West knows quite well that there is no press freedom in Algeria,nor is there anything called
    freedom of speech.Nobody can criticize Boutiflika openly in Algeria or tell him to shift from power.
    There is no such thing as trade-unionism in political life in Algeria.Unlike Tunisia,where labour unions play a pivotal role in politics,and here we mean the “ Union général des travailleurs tunisiens”,the “ Union Générale des Travaillleurs Algériens “ is a marionette,a puppet,and plays no
    pivotal role in opposition to the successive Algerian autocratic governments and which ruled Algeria
    since independence.
    Yet nothing functions democratically in Algeria.Algeria is a police-state and continues to be so.
    No American in the United States nor any European in the European Union ever raised such an issue-due to oil and gas interests,and even other economical interests !
    As always thank you very much euronews .

    I have to mention that in your latest video news from Ukraine, called “Ukraine pro-Russian separatists seize hostages, accuse nationalists of cowardice” you should not translate the Russian TV channel RTR video materials and their point of view as these are pure Russian propaganda lies. After seeing these lies you may get an impression that the funding for such video materials comes directly from Russia.

    I was with euronews for many years, but from now on I have no more respect for the news service that translates Russian propaganda without any understanding of the real situation in Ukraine. Unprofessional and inexcusable. No more trust in your services.

    Dear viewer,
    euronews has many sources of information and images. We treat all of these with the same editorial standards and judgement and are extremely rigourous as to the context in which we use the information and present images to the viewer. As a news story the crisis in Ukraine is rife with challenges for the media and we tread very carefully. But we remain committed to reflecting all perspectives to ensure accurate and comprehensive coverage of events on the ground in Ukraine. We present the facts and also contributors’ opinion with the utmost integrity and leave it to the viewers to decide what is propaganda and what is not. Head of English Service

    Your weather map – the symbols are illegible! I am 55 years old but it wouldn’t matter if I were 25, I can’t see whether the weather will kill the wether. You cannot see if a grey cloud has raindrops falling from it or not. Some even hide part of the temperature. It’s a shame because in so many ways other ways your channel is first class. Please, let us see if you forecast rain!

    29.05.14

    Dear viewer
    Sorry this has impinged on your enjoyment of our channel. We will raise the issue with the appropriate department and see if we can find a solution.

    April 27 in Lviv (Western Ukraine) was a march to commemorate the creation of the SS Division “Galicia”. Nazi march held on the Day of Holocaust Remembrance, held on April 27. No one news agency in the “free Europe” has not shown this Nazi march. On the same day, the new Ukrainian government ordered to cancel in 9h May the celebration of Victory Day over Nazism.
    May be euronews does not interesting this side of new Ukrainian government?
