Fighting started in late May, so they are misleading maps as they have not shown the picture since the start of hostilities in late spring 2014!!
Of course, this is just one very small example of how information is manipulated during a conflict. But, it cannot be overlooked, as it does shape people's opinions on the situation.
The media in the West do not do any research, they take information & serve it up as it is.

The Western media lies about the military operations of the Donbass militia. They are sick & tired of the repeated shelling on the civilian population. Food markets, bus stations have been recently targeted. It would be logical to push the artillery units out of range of the towns & cities.
