Yekaterina Parkhomenko

Yekaterina Parkhomenko (Named as Ekaterina Parkhomenko -  said to be pro-Russian and from Torez near where the plane came down ) uploaded a photograph on Instagram, the photo-sharing social network, with the caption: 'Mascara from Amsterdam; to be precise, from the field. Well, you understand.' She said she had not collected it herself but had got it “from a familiar friend”. [Original Article w/pictures] [English Newspaper Story]

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said he was “shocked at the pictures of utterly disrespectful behaviour at this tragic spot”.

Experts: MH17 Victims Could Have Remained Conscious During Fall 

 Reports out of France and Holland suggest relatives called the mobiles of their loved ones, only for them to be answered by strangers. Bloggers in both Russia and Ukraine have questioned whether the posting was a provocation amid a huge propaganda war from both sides, but a number of well-known web writers believe it to be genuine. (Y)Ekaterina, whose Instagram name was “zolotsova”, later deleted the page and along with it her presence on other social media sites.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
