The War May Be Over: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 110)

  1. Im a bit confused and forgive for my ignorance but are they speaking Russian or Ukraine and are these people from a different country altogether (that borders the conflict)?

  2. russia can only back one military occupation at a time. they had to go to syria to save tartous. now is the time for Urkaine to take back Crimea.

  3. they see themselves in Ukraine, but we here in Ukraine not really want them back, land yes, those people that turn on us – not really. + "civil war" ? really? weapons from Russia, regular Russian army – and they call it civil war! Russians can't get it that WE ARE NO LONGER ONE COUNTRY!

  4. shelling and shootings continue. just last night i spoke to a friend frm ukrainian army , their battalion is positioned in Shirokino . He told me that they constantly get provoked by fire from separatists's side but not allowed to return it, instead had to wait it out in a cellars and trenches. Donbass was never meant to become a part of Russia. Russia does not need this territory , all the slogans about unification with Russia were meant for masses in order to create a volitale background for the actual fighting. Russia needed a leverage, a zone which it can control and thus influence Kiev.

  5. Who do you think won this war?

    No one won, because i don't want to say that we lost the war only to help the agenda of a politician who doesn't care anymore about us…

  6. Now that Putler is focusing on warmongering elsewhere, i welcome Ukraine to the EU 😉
    Next stop: Belorus.
    Ukraine can join immediately by me (after the war is completely over), with a semi-membership (until they fix their economy and social welfare issues).

  7. Пидары, нахуй вы тут нужны в составе Украины, марионетки кремля, Донбасс и так в составе Украины, не важно что бандиты заняли госсдания.

  8. the war is over? thank god. the Ukrainians can finally live in peace. screw you russia your the reason for all this

  9. Look at all the Russian haters coming out of the woodwork to gloat at such news.

    At least fucking wait until the talks are through and decision is final.

  10. It's funny how this dispatch makes people think that the "bad guys" are losing the war now.

    No one wins a civil war, but this is now just a civil war, this is a client war. And the real players are the different foreign nations behind all this. THIS IS A RUSSIAN VICTORY. Now Crimea is solidly a part of Russia and Ukraine is wrecked. Maybe the separatists are wavering now, but from the Russians haven't lost anything (in fact Russia has gained a lot). And the Western powers behind Ukraine is pretty frustrated now that Russia is going into Syria to fight ISIS (and probably secretly kill off some other people, you know what I'm talking about) because there's nothing wrong with fighting ISIS and all the Western propaganda against Russia about violation of sovereignty has turned useless.

  11. At least these people are hanging around to see it through. Unlike those fucking Arabs, fleeing at the first gunshot.

  12. Russia needs to take back Ukraine and keep it. Watch what they do in Syria….they gonna kick ass and hopefully invade America and Israel after

  13. He said bring all Ukraine back to Russia? Haha, will see. Come to Kiev or Lviv and say this shit on street. You will be disappointed.

  14. First:  THEY BROUGHT THAT UPON THEMSELVES!!!  So they can complain about food, water, electricity, BUT "THEY" WERE THE ONES WHO TRIED CUTTING A HUGE PART OF UKRAINE OUT AND JUST GIVING IT TO PUTIN!!!- And ANYONE WHO THINKS LIKE THAT BETTER NOT CRY WHEN THEY GET WHAT'S COMING!!!! (f.e.- if ANYONE tries to make a huge part of one country "all of a sudden" belong to another country, and they try to do that through war- THEN THEY BETTWE NOT COMPLAIN WHEN THEY GET LEVELLED FOR IT!!!!- for this planet DOES NOT EVOLVE AROUND ANYBODY ELSE'S EMOTIONS!!!!)  Next:  They say that they want to resolve this "peacefully?"-  Well, at this point, then ONLY way that can happen IS IF THEY "ALL" (the wannabe rushians) MOVE TO RUSHIA!!!! (they lost ALL RIGHTS of living in Ukraine EVEN 1 SECOND LONGER!!!!)

  15. это пропоганда ебаная западная в россии хорошо это в вовсем мире херово

  16. I saw all the dispatches. When it started, these citizens looked furious and seemed to be hell-bent to go to war. Now, one hundred dispatches later, I guess they know what war is.

  17. I'm so glad the video has got nearly 200,000 views already people I know in England think this is all worked out already because they don't hear about it on the news.
    Thank GOD for Vice News.

  18. The "defenders of Islam " (ISIS) fighting the" defenders of Christianity "(Russia) – who will win?" The "defenders of Christianity "- the largest nuclear arsenal in the world, with 54% of the world's nuclear weapons. Just do not be peace and civilization at all – will all blow up. I congratulate all "defenders of Christianity" – "holy war" ends in victory! The complete victory over mankind!
    Or maybe the intermediate and half-hearted options? – Who will be preserved in the half, and who will go down in half destroyed? Or stay and half of those from the other?

  19. It's very sad these people have to put up with living live at it's most basic. Let us hope all sides see sense and realize peace is the best option with give and take on both sides.

  20. "…give it up, Mr. Poroshenko. You owe the Russians billions and haven't paid. Just give them the territories,
    call it square, and live in peace with your neighbor. The alternative may be the death of your country."

  21. Separatists continue to fight: "They're fucking mindless savages"
    Separatists seek peace: "Lmao they're fucking weak"

    ^Logic of all the 15 year olds in the comments

  22. This is all Russia's fault. If Russia kept their nose out of Ukraine and didn't find the terrorists there wouldn't be any bloodshed.

  23. anyone who knows anything about this conflict will tell you the minsk agreement will expire at the end of the year, and the ukraine will say the rebels attacked them therefore they must go on the offensive, even though kiev has been violating the minsk 2 agreement since day 1.

  24. Its somehow orwellian that citizens who do not accept a fascist junta – that wants to kill them – are called "Rebels". Is this the wording to be used according to US-standards? Or is it simple stupidity?

  25. Any news on the current status of Ukraine? I've watched many dispatches and kinda fell off the rail at some point, so now I'm trying to catch up.

  26. I am a strong supporter of the Ukrainian Army and Volunteers, but I respect what that man at 5:40 said, he speaks wisdom.

  27. And now for the most relevant question in this whole, sad, bloody conflict: How do I score one of those sweet T-Shirts at 3:58 ? It would be a hit at Starbucks, and a win for Mob Capitalism. It would tell everyone in the board room that I came to party.

  29. ох симон жаль пизды тебе не дали еще когда ты по сибири на поезде разъезжал

  30. russia lost its war in eastern ukraine , it failed to save rebels form ukrainian army so now they are giving up (russians )

  31. Too bad Ukraine does not want them back but then again why would you want a traitorous snake back into your house 😀 these DPR and LPR people better start putting pressure on Russia to fund their reconstruction Putin was all big talk about how much he loves these people but Russia is unwilling to give these people the money they need to reconstruct and rebuild so much for brotherly love

  32. Talk went from marching to Kiev to remaining in Ukraine after all. Seems to me like Ukraine beat the soul out of their separatists…

  33. It is a funny thing listen to the separatist politicians: "we will turn the Ukraine to the integration with Russia, just like this part of Donbass does". 2 million people is going to dictate the political future for the rest 43 millions in Ukraine. It's madness, Minsk has no future

  34. Путин введи воду!
    был референдум в Крыму и был в ЛДНР. путин и рф признали один но не другой. я забыл, как это объясняется?

  35. "There are no victors in this war"
    This guy knows what is going on. By far the best thing said in the video.

  36. This dickhead has obviously had tutoring in the subject of political speaking. He was a lot more skilled than I've ever heard him before, previously it was all "we hate Ukraine and they're Nazis" etc…..He's still a c**t though.

  37. How funny it is? The want to have a stand alone republic but they continue to take annuity from Ukraine and to go shopping there.

  38. Just wondering. Is Ukraine liable for pension payments still even if the region seceded from that country? And are those women using the loophole by walking several kilometers over to Ukraine to collect their checks?

  39. 3 years went by and there is no sign of any reintegration. Alexander Zakharchenko is dead and the front lines haven't changed much. The only thing differnent is that Ukraine will eventually become a NATO member and will have to deal with the internal problem they're facing here.

  40. The dude with Putin on his shirt wasn't about to let vice to film with out him being seen several times. I died laughing when he casually walked past like it wasn't on purpose
