Out of Control: Ukraine's Rogue Militias 4.5
In 2014, Ukraine was under siege and the military was unprepared. Desperate, the government urged anyone to get to the front and fight the Russian-backed separatists. As the war drags on, Ukraine claims their military is now in control and the volunteers have all been disbanded. But we tracked down some rogue volunteers still out there fighting, not prepared to hand over their weapons anytime soon.

i miss simon ostrovsky covering the ukranian story. he was understanding and respectful.
i really dont like this guy. hes got no idea about the gravity of they way life is there.
his questions and demeanor is very disrespectful and pissed me off

acting like a child asking dumb questions. 'i wanna see action! is there real fighting here?' like a damn tourist

This guy has no respect for the situation at hand.

This would be fantastic except for the reporter's insulting questions.

Author — Scott Laux


This conflict is not even covered any more. Hats off to Vice for covering this.

The interviewer should never have left Starbucks and attempted to comment on something he doesn't understand.

Reporter: "Are they just playing war?"

Comment Section: "The reporter is playing journalism."

Author — Wes Vasquez


"I need freedom" damn dude, that's kinda sad.

Author — Keegan Waters


"Are they just out here playing soldier, or do they have a crucial combat role?" This journalist clearly knows nothing about soldiering and how much of a soldier's time is spent standing around doing nothing much.

VICE, please go back to your roots and cover more raw stories like this. Actually interesting and incredibly well made. The other route you have gone down is pure and utter garbage

Holy shit, that museum scene, "I've been there, I've been there". Yeah, you're sooo cool, you've been there during the war, cooool. Get some good journalists and not this idiot!

The soliders: Have you ever been inspired to fight for anything?
The reporter: I once complained about the non-organic oatmeal milk in my triple steamed skinny fair trade polyamorous latte at Blue Bottle, like the one in Brooklyn, cause I only hang out near or in Brooklyn.

The comment section was 100% right about this absolutely shitty reporter, and I'm what most of them would call a homo vegan soy boy. Vice's reporters are just rich hipster kids who could afford unpaid media internships, & that's why we're getting this content.

You paint them out to be the bad guys. They’re just fighting a bullshit war for their families & I respect the hell out of those guys.

The topic was interesting...the reporter was shite and so was his ability to provide any value.

Author — Mike Simms


the reporter is like wow my wifes boyfriend had a gun once can i touch it? is it real?



What happened to vice news?? Simon Ostrovsky made a far more compelling journalist.

Author — Karl Fisher


Seeing him walk around with his chinstrap flapping around bothers me way more than it should.

These were not rogue militias...these were people who stood up to defend their country.
