The simmering war in east Ukraine saw a large-scale escalation last weekend, with five Ukrainian soldiers killed and more than 20 wounded, after separatist militants tried to take over army positions.

While fighting is picking up on the front, Jake Hanrahan visited the separatist Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) to see how the breakaway region is trying to establish government, and to meet the people living under their rule.

This segment originally aired Dec. 19, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

Why would i trust the jurnalist if he tells me that when the camera turned off evrybody left? I didint see that, how can i know what he saw. He can get paid for telling that story, so there is a motive. One more thing for me not to trust him. Second the guy in the mask, how do i know that he even lives in ukraine... Dont fake shit no more, When Albanians take Kosovo, then thats okey. But when Russians do it then its wrong...

As soon as the camera turns off... "Light'em up boys!!"

Seriously, does anyone consider VICE as a legit source of news?

the reason two regions want to leave ukraine is because what happened in kiev few years ago...they dont want to be a part of state that is controlled by non elected killer dictator.

What do you know about this war?! We live here and see! And you, as a dog barking not knowing what! You come who don't believe. Get your pants! Morons!

I remember Simon Ostrovsky from VICE news repeating the word “invasion” when it was obvious almost everyone in Crimea wanted to become part of Russia. Being a British propaganda channel, even BBC acknowledged that the Crimean referendum was genuine, but VICE lives in its own parallel universe.

Right, the people in DNR are strictly controlled, but the rest of Ukraine is a shining example of freedom of expression. You think we haven't seen how those violent crowds evicted the last legitimate president of Ukraine Yanukovich?

I think this guys that made the documentary wanted to give their opinion and not to find out the truth
HOME OF THE SLAVES
Lol if they're so anti Ukraine why don't they go to Russia
Johnny Deplorable
You schmucks on Vice News are trying to skew the true DNR personality, shameful. These folks are fighting for independence and you sit here and play politics when people are living in rubble! Sad FUCKS!

Russia needs to invade Ukraine for real. Than the Russian army would be in Kiev in a matter of days and weeks at most.
Oleg Ushyarov
I trust the Taliban more than I trust vice news.

Vice news. I am from Ukraine and my family still lives there. You guys did nothing but lie in this video. I will spread word as much as I can so people never take you seriously. You are like a national enquirer.

Soccer Hooligans In Russia Are Trained, Inside The DNR, The Russia-Backed Region 2 months ago   05:33

Soccer is known worldwide for its passionate fans, and every soccer-mad country has its hooligans who get sloppy and start brawls. But in Russia, these hooligans are trained, organized, and brutally violent.

These organized gangs of hooligans, referred to as “firms,” are becoming more prominent around the country. At the European Soccer Championship last summer, violent clashes in Marseilles showcased the professional fighting prowess of Russian hooligans.

Russia hosting the World Cup in 2018 has put pressure on law enforcement to crack down on the “firms,” who put close to 30 England supporters in the hospital after the 2016 Euro Cup.

VICE News correspondent Ben Makuch reports from Russia ,where he meets with some career hooligans. Despite having the support of some people in the government, the gangs anticipate significant disruption to their activities in the coming months.
