The Kremlin's Secret War: Russia's Ghost Army in Ukraine (Full Length) 4
The bitter conflict in Ukraine has cost thousands of lives, but the Russian government has continuously denied sending its soldiers to the frontlines, despite accusations to the contrary from NATO and Western officials.

Since August 2014, a small but steady stream of coffins began arriving in villages across Russia, containing the maimed bodies of soldiers killed in “unknown circumstances.” Some would be buried hastily at night or in secret funerals, their graves zealously guarded from prying outsiders. Journalists investigating the deaths have reported being threatened with intimidation and attacks.

In cases that the Kremlin could not so easily ignore, the dead or injured have been hailed as “volunteers” who entered Ukraine on leave from the army — heroes who fought unofficially for the freedom of their Russian-speaking brethren.

VICE News travels to Russia to investigate the mysterious deaths of dozens — possibly hundreds — of active-duty Russian servicemen who are believed to have been killed in Ukraine. Accounts gathered from soldiers’ families, human rights workers, and government officials cast doubt on the Kremlin narrative, revealing the unacknowledged sacrifices borne by Russia’s ghost army.

I cannot express my gratitude for all the people involved that haad the courage to speak up and put this together, this is true journalism, something that has become a rare thing today where mass-media is bombarding us with bits of information that is copied from other media centres, this is what can truly bring change into the minds of people and bring governments and organisations that are acting in their own intrests to justice

It's ironic how Russia loves to call everyone else "fascist", seeing as Russia's justification for action in Crimea and the rest of Eastern Ukraine is the exact same Germany used for the Sudetenland. Seeing as fascism is defined as "reactionary authoritarian nationalism" typically brought about by a fear of decline and thus promoting romantic nationalism, ultra-masculinity and a vision of itself as anti-liberal, it seems Russia under Putin fills the neo-fascist criteria far more than ethnic Ukrainians who wave EU flags.

I am sorry for those Russian parents and relatives of dead soldiers, but it is the worldwide norm to classify the death circumstances of certain personnel, just as their operations are. The American military makes no extemption - no military, really, does: check chief Etchberger's story, a helicopter pilot shot down over Laos in 1968 when the United States had previously solemnly declared not being involved in combat operations against Laos; reminds you anything? His wife, not even his children present, was awarded a medal in a deep-secret ceremony at the Pentagon and only years later he was awarded a public Medal of Honor. Check the stories of those Green Berets killed in combat in El Salvador while performing "advisory" roles between 1982 and 1991. Do you think that all "training accidents", "sudden mortar attack", "booby traps", "helicopter crash" do not hid classified operations? At least some surely do. If someone tried to stick his or her nose in, they would surely be targeted by the appropriate security agencies for being around classified information. Hiding things from citizens is not pleasant but sometimes government feel it is necessary.

The Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine were doing their duty as regular troops in a covered operation, no more, no less. Even though you can find the names of the very units involved - Finnish military journalists reconstructed their identities observing minute details such as rifle magazines - the Russian government will never admit, for now, that they operated their personnel there. It is the way these things are run. All over the world.

Damn Russia has always been bloody aggressor. In 1939 Russian "liberators" brought their dirty presence into Baltic states. Luckily though in 1991 we managed to break through from that damn commie system for good. In 2008 russian "peacemakers" once again brought their "peace" into Georgia. Now dirty russians' "peacekeeping" in Ukraine hahahaha! Russia is the most evel country the humanity has ever faced.

I don't feel a bit sorry for those russian scumbags either crippled or killed in the process. Those bastards sneaked across the ukrainian border to terrorize and kill ukrainians. They knew what they were in for therefore they've got what they've deserved. No person in obliged to follow criminal orders or directives and so those people have chosen that path for themselves and eventually faced the consequences.

What a funny pirate that Nickolay Kozlov kid is: no ship, no parrot and apparently no leg. Talk about irony.

Just remember that we (the USA) denied bombing Laos and Cambodia for *years* after the Vietnam War. And even though that information is public nowadays, very few people know about it, and even fewer care. But *everyone* is up in arms about Russia doing the same damn thing we did. So what's the lesson from this? *Stop fucking warring, you spineless politician pricks. If you want a war, wage it your own damn selves with your own damn hands.*
