On the Frontlines of Ukraine's Proxy War Between the West and Russia 4.5
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.

This is so sad.
He's talking about WWIII and most hate- and blameful comments get the most likes.
I guess humanity is quick to forget and it's in our nature to once again enter the cycle of destruction and death.

For me, that's hard to accept.

As a Canadian, I'd militarily support Ukraine if I had the choice. If World War Three were to break out, I'd like to think we could help.
