This week, the Ukrainian military launched an anti-terrorist operation to quell the pro-Russia violence and unrest that has swept eastern Ukraine. VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky interviewed troops deployed in the operation at the border between Kharkiv and Donetsk, and then traveled to Kramatorsk, where pro-Russia protesters were attempting to take over an airfield. When Simon arrived, it seemed that the airfield was still under Ukrainian control, but the pro-Russia protesters were outside preparing to seize it. Once the head of the anti-terror operation appeared outside the base, the commander was accosted by the protesters until he retreated back inside - so much for his anti-terror operation.

Strange how are they cheering "Donbass" and not "Russia". Where are all these Russian patriotic and nationalist troops Western media are talking about?

The people in Crimea have voted: they want to belong to Russia.
15 is legal In Europe
Yeah, just like the russians "Voted for putin" . By your logic, the confederacy too voted to split fron the union, but does that mean they should have been allowed to? Crimea is part of Ukraine, simple as it is. Geographically, it's always been like that.

Maybe it's just me but why does it look more like the Ukrainians are the terrorists because I see Ukrainian Civilians I see unarmed people who are threatened by Ukraine I see people who are scared and defending their homes from a foreign force what the heck is going on because clearly this isn't Ukrainian territory so why are those troops there and why are we supporting Ukrainian aggression against these people?

How did these civilians beat back the Ukraine troops and APCS AND HELICOPTERS
15 is legal In Europe
Because the Ukrainians didn't open fire. And then when the Ukrainian officers tried to come out and talk to the people they got dragged into the crowd and killed

Будь у меня власть, ввел бы военное положение, дал бы указание военным первый раз предупреждение, второе выстрел в воздух, третье огонь на поражение. После таких действий шел бы диалог и не было бы этого безобразия.

This proves Novorossiya and the split from kiev was a civil uprising and not "russian invaders". It was the ukrainians who came to donbass with weapons. This clearly shows it.
