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?
James
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.

Soccer Hooligans In Russia Are Trained, Inside The DNR, The Russia-Backed Region 4 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.
