In dispatch six, VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky travels to the Kherson region of mainland Ukraine to both the Ukrainian and Russian checkpoints. At the Ukrainian checkpoint, Simon goes inside one of their tanks, and speaks to the commander, who says that despite his Russian blood he will defend all invaders. But at the Russian checkpoint, the exchange isn't quite as cordial.

Now imagine,if you were a russian and you to go to Iraq and do this near a US checkpost what would happen. This is the reason why VICE News is shit.
Jake blasdel
Not very smart dude.. I’d avoid provoking people like that..

They told you to stand still, but then you started to run xD that's why they were mean. Imagine if a cop told you to stay still and then you start running away, that looks super suspicious.

I love the way he asks if the checkpoint leader is ethnic Russian, his name is literally Major Kalashnikov!
Mustafa Rami

Maisara Mualil

Emil Serafino
Nice propaganda piece.

1:50 Anybody saw the guy with an extra brain digging with an AXE
Lemuel Bonife
I thought they were russians but those were berkut service men and they are ukrainians, they are just as simon said have been reinstated by the russians and are guarding that checkpoint, now i have no idea how people perceive this as russian service men cause clearly simon stated himself that those men in the blue uniforms were berkut. People here in the comment section seemed like poor listeners leaving out the details like that just because they want to see the russians as the bad guys.
TheHonestDutch/Irish/Italian guy
Forget about the division between Western and Eastern Ukraine. This comment section is more divided

Notice how at 8:36 the guy in the white mask takes off the safety and leaves it off for the exchange... he was prepared for doing something.

As Russians stream into Crimea to help wrestle it away from Ukraine, an unlikely group of Serbian war veterans, who have experience fighting in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo, are turning up at the checkpoints too. VICE News reporter Simon Ostrovsky follows Russian troops as they continue their occupation of Ukrainian military bases, and learns about unidentified men in masks attacking journalists reporting on the situation in the peninsula.
