In eastern Ukraine, the conflict drags on, despite the signature of a peace deal three years ago. Parts of the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk are still occupied by Russian-backed separatists. Last year, around 190 Ukrainian soldiers and 85 civilians were killed, according to the army. Ukraine recently passed a law officially designating Russia as an aggressor and occupier. But many of those living in the war zone are highly critical of the government in Kiev. Our correspondent reports.

I'm surprised the US hasn't sent more private contractors to Ukraine
susan p. faust
no.,it was not a russian invasion - that is A LIE - THE 2014 COUP DETAT WAS ENGINEERED BY AMERICAN CIA - GEO.SOROS - HCLINTON- JOHN MCCAin-- it was a CIA ILLEGAL REGIME CHANGE OPERATION TO SET UP A AN ILLEGAL PUPPET GOVT - THE NEW ILLEGAL LEADER BECAME THE NEO NAZI POROSHENKO, WHOM THE RUSSIAN-SPEAKING PEOPLE OF EASTERN UKRAINE/DONBASS REFUSE TO ACCEPT AS A LEADER. IT IS A TRAGIC SITUATION - THE AMERICAN CIA SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ITS CRIMINAL OPERATIONS - THE KIEV REGIME IS NEONAZI BANDERITE REGIME WHICH THE RUSSIAN SPEAKING PEOPLE OF DONBASS REFUSE TO ACCEPT - A TRAGIC CIVIL WAR, NOT AN INVASION BY THE RUSSIANS - 10,000 CIVILIANS IN EASTERN UKRAINE HAVE BECOME THE VICTIMS OF THE KIEV REGIME 'S AGGRESSION - THEY ARE NOT TERRORISTS, AS KIEV WRONGLY CLAIMS BUT CUIVILIANS DEFENDING THEIR HOMES AND FARMS

It was a cease fire aggrement...

Of course it is a 100% russian invasion. Nobody today can denied this. All politics and military leaders, military equipemnent, generals, funds... are russians and all this was proved thousands times.
I was in Donetsk in 2014, absolutely no doubts. It was a nightmare.
Ukraine try just to defend his country's integrity.
Today Donbass is like Transnistria, a puppet land for Putin.


Je constate que les usines à trolls Russes sont aussi présentes sur France 24. Ne cherchez pas à nier l'évidence. La Russie mène une guerre violente et meurtrière en Ukraine, tout comme en Syrie.
L'avenir jugera les coupables.


Thank you France24

France 24 need to give picture from other side for comparison . Otherwise this all is not looking as truth .

All that damage was done by government shelling yet you make it sound like a Russian invasion. A million refugees have gone to Russia, do think Russia wanted that?I keep hearing that Russia invaded Crimea, but you could never convince the people of Crimea that they were invaded.

Inside The DNR, The Russia-Backed Region Video: War in Ukraine drags on, three 6 months ago   05:46

Share
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.
