Information war rages inside Ukraine

Rumours and propaganda fly amid political upheaval following Crimea's decision to join Russia.

    An information war is being fought between Ukraine and Russia following Moscow's annexation of Crimea.

    But those in Ukraine who are against the interim government in Kiev say the media is failing to report on growing protests inside the country against the interim government.
