The two finalists in Sunday’s presidential election in Ukraine share at least one common point: both have promised to end the ongoing war in the country's easternmost region. The conflict began in 2014, when pro-Moscow separatists took control of the Donbas area, resulting in the founding of two self-proclaimed republics.

This is all Russia's fault. Ukraine will never forget how Stalin had them dying. Ukraine is sick of Russia.

What has Russias promises done for Eastern Ukraine? How are they enjoying their freedom? What does it say about Russia when the 4th largest military in the world can't even defeat Ukraine, a country with a 1980s level army.

The media should show videos of soldiers getting there limbs blown off, and having there face blown apart by rounds, this is the reality of war, there is nothing glorious about war.

turn their back on their nation or confronting the nation's leaders that turned their back on them and the people first?
(obviously the latter.)

Poor Ukraine! They have all the luck of a 1-legged man in a butt kicking contest politically & economically. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Ukraine turned away from the corrupt decline occurring in Russia & turned 2 the exploitation & corruption of the US. They were sucked in2 giving up their nuclear capability by Clinton & now pay 4 it. Y are my countrymen so stupid?

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.
