The West has used everything from signals intelligence operations, espionage, fighter jet saber-rattling, and diplomatic standoffs to stem the rise of Russian influence around the world. These efforts are coming to a dangerous head in Ukraine — a classic Eastern Bloc proxy state — where the presence of NATO troops is driving tensions to Cold War-era levels.

As the armed conflict between the Ukrainian army and Russian-backed separatists enters its third year, VICE travels to the frontline to take a closer look at what international assistance really looks like for those caught in the line of fire.

All countries are at the point of no return, shots may be be fired, Once an attack happens, we will all loose. Once the release of authority to attack the enemy threat, Canadians will always take the objective.

If WW3 breaks out, make sure to bring down the power of NK, China, and India. They are now too strong and might lead to total dominance if they want to after the potential world war.

The way Americans fight the ISIS and the Ukranian fight Russians are so different.

Putin went against the agreement and went brothers against brothers. Disgusting.

Crimea is part of Russia, you showing it as part of Ukraine is inaccurate just like the rest of this report. I see people talking about Russian propoganda all the time, and what do you think your watching here? The truth? Lol, no, what your watching is western propoganda, mainly NATO alliance propoganda. Yes, it works both ways.

All this started because of the Western backed coup. The Ukrainian president chose to go with a loan from Russia, so the US organised a coup to depose him.

As an uneasy ceasefire continues to hold in Eastern Ukraine, VICE News returns to Donetsk with an exclusive film that follows some of the characters involved in setting up the self-proclaimed state of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).

In early April 2014, pro-Russia rebels seized the regional administration building and other key institutions in Donetsk, expelling Ukrainian officials and raising their own flag. The rebellion here — and other incidents elsewhere — quickly escalated into a bloody civil war that has left over 2,000 people dead and displaced more than a million.

Filmed over six weeks, this documentary follows the chaotic birth of the DPR as it tries to forge a path to independence and closer ties to Russia.
