This was a tragic event, and the victims should be compensated, but the girl should not get off without proper punishment.
But it's Ukraine and money can buy most anything there.

Right, but my wife says that its sad that inside Europe you do not get the whole news.

The woman ran a red light yes, but she was rammed off the road by someone else , also running a red light.

The article I read says she was racing the other car. More facts need to come out.

It's The Sun, like the Daily Fail, anything is to be taken with a pinch of salt and in all honesty, I wouldn't even wipe my arse with The Sun.

No, she wasn't rammed off the road by someone running a red light.  As she went through the red light, she was hit a car entering the intersection legally on a green light.

Wonder if they are being genuine, or are just doing whatever they can to keep their daughter from getting what she deserves?

Not according to the Russian & Ukrainian news, they said the other party had the so-called 'red-yellow' combination, meaning that you prepare for green but it is not yet green.

Russian news only: It said the driver of car that rammed the woman was of the Ukrainian SBU (but alas, i couldn't find proof of that).

Btw: IF this had happened in the netherlands, that girl would only be culpable for running a red light, nothing else. Seems kind of sad.

This news article is the closest I could find before the media-shitstorm started to twist the news.

Its facts are:
LEXUS SUV of the woman ran a red light (booh)
Volkswagen Toeareg rammed into her (color of light unknown)
Pedestrians were killed, who were waiting for a GREEN light (there's the light color green).

So, if I understood correctly, from the least distorted narrative (the earliest).
Girl went through the light on red and was hit by another car going through against the lights.
If the girl's car had not been hit by the other car then nobody would be dead.
The girl's car was turned into a weapon by the driver of the other car who was also crossing the junction against the lights and, certainly, without taking care of what was in front of him.

The employment of the other driver would seem to be irrelevant except to the degree in which the narrative is being turned away from the person who really took the fatal action.

Yes, the other car for some reason went through red-orange before it turned to fully green. However, this is speculation at best as news seems to be twisted here.

also correct, but she did create the situation by running a red light.

yes, thats a correct assumption. And Russia says the other driver is part of the Ukrainian SBU (unverifiable).
