"...its peacekeepers’ mission shouldn’t be spun as a defeat upon their impending departure."

Yeah, but those who do or would spin it thus will or would anyway, and those who can read and/or think probably won't. You do what you can. What you do — explain it for people who can read and might be in danger of thinking — might be the last straw (последняя капля) to help someone push themself over the brink to become consciously aware and thereby come to terms with a more balanced truth (for themself).

Water on stone — keep it up.
