Here's a nice journalism vs propaganda test: read this article, and tell me: were the weapons for the rebels, or for the Ukrainian government?

@mardy it says "The police did not make it clear which side the Italians were on in this case." so we couldn't know.

@jeena The news has been redacted; when I read it, it was like this: What would you infer, by reading that article?

@mardy back then it was "Italian media say the raids were part of an investigation into Italian far-right help for Russian-backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine." Quite interesting change.

@jeena Just to complete the story: it was exactly the opposite. The police released a statement (later amended for political reason) clearly saying that the weapons were bound to far right groups linked to the Ukrainian government, not to the rebels.
