Inside Rebel-Held Uglegorsk: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 94)


AVERTISSEMENT
Des images peuvent choquer. Je veux dire à cet idiot,
[le président ukrainien] Porochenko : « Si on t’attrape,
on va te couper la tête, et on en fera un cendrier. » S’il te plaît, ne coupe pas ça au montage.
Je le dis du fond de mes tripes. RUSSIAN ROULETTE
Au cœur du bastion rebelle de Uglegorsk VICE NEWS S’EST RENDU DANS LE TERRITOIRE
DE LA DNR [RÉPUBLIQUE POPULAIRE DE DONETSK], À VUHLEHIRSK, DEUX JOURS AVANT LE CESSEZ-LE-FEU DES ACCORDS DE MINSK, LE 15 FÉVRIER. UGLEGORSK, territoire tenu par les DNR, pro-russes séparatistes. [Soldat de la DNR]
On est à Vuhlehirsk. Ici, il y avait… Ce qui s’est passé ici était terrifiant. Ces bâtards d’Ukrainiens
ont tué beaucoup de civils. Il n’y a pas besoin de trêve. Parce que, dès que l’on aura commencé
à exercer notre contrôle, ils briseront la trêve direct. Pas grave,
on restera ici à défendre notre terre. On les a bombardés
au niveau des rails. Et ces animaux [les Ukrainiens] ont fui. Les chiens l’ont mangé. Enculé. Par rapport à la trêve, je crois que c’est pas bien,
d’après moi. Ce matin, pendant l’assaut,
neuf de mes camarades ont été tués Ukrainiens, n’espérez aucun pardon. On vous tuera comme des poulets. [Habitant du coin]
Ils ont déjà annoncé des cessez-le-feu,
on a vu aucun résultat. Même à Donetsk, les [précédents] cessez-le-feu
étaient à peine perceptibles. Ils ont bombardé pendant deux jours. C’est arrivé il y a deux jours. Ils ont
bombardé d’abord ici, puis de ce côté de la ville. Après tout ce qui s’est passé, on ne sursaute même plus. [Habitante du coin]
Ma maison est à deux bâtiments d’ici. On était là. J’étais assis dans le sous-sol. C’est là qu’était mon
salon de coiffure pour hommes. Regardez ce qui est arrivé. Deux obus sont tombés. On n’a rien pu sauver. Je vois pas pourquoi il devrait
y avoir un cessez-le-feu. [Soldat de la DNR]
S’ils veulent oublier
ces huit mois de guerre, le premier truc que je ferai
c’est les punir, ces dirigeants ukrainiens. Il faut qu’ils soient sévèrement
punis par des tribunaux pour crimes de guerre. C’est juste que j’en ai marre.
Après huit mois de guerre, j’en ai marre. Allons voir un soldat ukrainien. Voir comment il vit,
comment nos infirmières s’en occupent. Franchement, je voulais te mettre en pièces
pour tous mes camarades. Mais là c’est bon,
les autres m’ont calmé. J’ai les idées en place maintenant. Sois reconnaissant de ce qu’on te donne
comme médicaments, et de pouvoir te reposer. [Pilote de tank, armée ukrainienne]
On ne savait pas, jusqu’au lendemain [de notre départ], où on allait. On ne vous a rien dit ? Ils ont dit : quelque part
sur la route de Debaltseve. On nous a juste dit qu’on se battrait
sur la ligne de front. Tu peux t’en aller et dire au reste [des Ukrainiens],
ce qu’ils ont fait ici. Tu peux expliquer qu’il n’y a
pas de soldats russes, de terroristes ou de bandits. C’est pour ça que Dieu t’a sauvé,
pour que tu puisses dire ça à tes amis. 12 types de mon unité sont morts, les autres ont disparu. 12 hommes ne reverront pas leur mère. Vous les avez tués. Vous les avez juste emmenés
et vous les avez tués. Qu’est ce que je peux dire, psychologiquement,
je m’en remettrai jamais. Je serai méchant
toute ma vie. Méchant. Ce sentiment restera pour toujours. Comment supporter ça?
Franchement je ne sais pas. Je ne le supporte pas.

    So much for Russia-haters in the comments below. Let's use some logic. Okay, It's been 1 year since this so-called "Revolution" happened in Ukraine. What do we have:
    1) Civil war, that took more then 6,000 people's lives, openly supported by western authorities. Destroyed Eastern region and millions of refugees, seeking their cover in Russia. Oh, and Nazi parades of Right Sector in Kiev is just a common thing now. Europe doesn't care.
    2) Russia is number 1 economy partner and number 1 enemy of Ukraine. Sounds ridiculous, isn't it? Ukraine accuses Russia of funding "terrorists", but keeps giving Russia money. Yea, this is kind of game new ukrainian government plays.
    3) Invisible Russian army all over Ukraine. It is like yeti – no one has ever seen them, but WE know there are in Ukraine. Why? May be because Moscow denies it, or because someone has heard of it. Whoever denies it – KGB agent or Putin's bot.
    4) Grivna has lost more then 300% of it's value. Everyone made a big news when the Russian currency dropped by 40%, but no one gives a f*ck when ukrainian grivna becomes more like Zimbabwe dollar.
    5) Crimea is lost and doesn't want to come back. I wonder if all these people who accuse Russia of invading Ukraine ever thought about the fact that ukrainian army doesn't even try to return Crimea? The answer is simple – they are going to face REAL Russian army, and the whole conflict is going to end in 5 days, like it was in August 2008 with Georgia. 
    6) About Savchenko: She is accused in killing Russian journalists. And will be prosecuted if it is proven that it was her.
    Pretty sure if an American citizen is killed in another country, the US will do the same – make sure that the person who did this will be punished and know that you don't mess up with US citizens.

  12. Marko Sherstylo says:

    Yea and I will cut Putin's head off and feed it to the dogs… God they (Russians) are as retarded as the human race gets. And the world still sits and says these are rebels. Vice you are a great news reporting team and I greatly appreciate your work. But filming interviews from these barbarian no brainers is a waste of time. I believe Vice should put their own perspective on this and interview some of the more important people that actually say the truth. These "rebels" are complaining that we are attacking them, um isnt that a bit awkward to say when it is actually them who have started this shit and correction… Russia started. So the only concern I have is why such a good news team feeds such shit information to people. I am repeating get your own perspective, because what all these people (rebels, russian soldiers and civilians) said is bullshit. This is the land of Ukraine and they are not defending anything but instead attacking. I am fed up with the bullshit these assholes are telling you… It just disgusts me…

    There's so much autism in this comments section

  14. Shmeagle Nottz says:

    So are these guys the so called Russian rebels the Ukraine army is fighting?

  15. Raven K says:

    So…the Russian czar putin announces a cease fire?  Doesn't that mean that Russians are involved? 

  16. n13arkotik says:

    Показывают, что среди "ополченцев" одни уголовники и наркоманы.
    Это такой тонкий троллинг?)

  17. Алекса́ндр Миха́йлович Василе́вский says:

    I love the blind russophobia in the comments. With regards to the Ukrainian solider, he has my sympathies, him and thousands like him on both sides are more or less fighting for their homes and friends rather than Putin or Kiev. Sure the guy bringing the cameraman to so him berating him isnt civil, but keep 3 things in mind.

    A: These so called "Russian Savages" saved this man, if they were really the drug-addicted hicks you 12 year olds are making them out to be they would of shot him on the spot. But instead, they give him a bead, treatment and medicine from an already dwindling supply. Officially every army on earth would do the same, but its no less of a hard decision to make when a war is going on and you dont know if theres enough morphine to go around for your own people. let alone the people who were sent to kill you

    B: The separatist did not throw any punches, sure he speaked in a violent manor but he left the Ukrainian no worse physically than he found him.

    C: These people are at war, therefor have a much different mindset then you and I. Sure its easy to scrutinize every decision and person from the confort of our own homes on Youtube. The fact is that non of us in the comment section have spent the better part of the year being shelled and shoot at. When a man is under a constant state of fear, not knowing when death will come or what would happen to his way of life it tends to change your mood. You dont have to be Sigmund Freud to realize that war is a stressful situation. 

  18. Langbard says:

    Long live Novorussia.

  19. Rob Kulys says:

    whole city destoyed with grad system ukraine forces was defending it but had to retreat if anyone killed civilians is russian forces with their grad systems

  20. Rob Kulys says:

    this look like propoganda specially made for russian channels

  21. rusty nuts says:

    Pro Russians are pretty tough…when Russians are doing their fighting for them! Maybe if you had negotiated with your government instead of taking up arms against them, you might not have all these problems! Limited self government for 3 years boys! and you're wasting it.

  22. Keemstar Love 420 says:

    Just by the way they talk. The things they say. You can clerly see they are stupid and are Russian. PEACE AND LOVE. FROM UKRAINE!!

  23. Keemstar Love 420 says:

    2:37. YOU SAY THEY ARE PRO-RUSSIAN. I SAY THEY ARE ALL FUCKING RUSSIANS. Look at his left hand. It has Russian Army badge on there (ROSSIA and RUSSIAN FLAG)

  24. Oganes A says:

    Long live DNR and LNR hopefully they will achieve their dream of separation which they have every right to separate especially after the president they supported was ousted and after this new regime began a campaign of war against them not to mention war crimes. Ukraine has and always will be a failed and useless state. 

  25. seannootherway says:

    at 2:22 the soldier say's that the politicians and leaders should be held for war crimes… not far from the truth…but then… why not also hold the DNR and the Novarussians accountable for war crimes? i mean, they did after all fill a fuck load of holes with dead bodies of innocent civilians that opposed the take over of Russia… hmm sounds like dumb people to me

  26. Raymond Vincent says:

    Maniacs.

  27. Dave Qwerty says:

    No heat or electricity the rubul is collapsing and they will rebuild how? Then they turn around and thank the ppl who blew up half their homes? Makes no sense

  28. John Lott says:

    These Communist separatists will be crushed once the new government in Kiev is set up because this one doesn't seem to want to win anything. Then, the battlehardened volunteer units from the Azov and such will slaughter these insignificunt punks with guns. SLAVA UKRAINI! HIROYAM SLAVA!

  29. sergey tsvetanov says:

    This is  bad this is really bad. Russians are killing Russians. This must be American and British wet dream.

  30. Mthammere2010 says:

    "Evil for the rest of my life" that dude was evil when he was born; you can tell he's a lunatic. The DNR probably beheaded that Ukranian soldier after this video.

  31. Daniel Woodward says:

    Bad translation in the subtitles. At the end, the rebel soldier says he is "zloy" and that he will be "zloy" for the rest of his life because of the deaths of his 12 comrades. "Zloy" translates two ways – one way means evil, the other means angry or mad. The translator put it as "evil" so you have the rebel saying he's evil and that he's going to be evil for the rest of his life. He was really just saying that he's upset.

  32. onceANexile says:

    the american people are for the rebels!!!! we are going to be next….the system of things is COLLAPSING.

  33. Daniel Griggs says:

    The USA and RUSSIA need to wake up and join each other and fight the real enemy ISIS. If we all spoke the same language we would get rid most of our differences

  37. Yura Ridkous says:

    Did anyone read what is written at rebel's chevron? There is written 'Russia', not even DNR or something else. And what a dramatic play at a hospital. 

  38. Konnor D says:

    Fuck the Russia!

  39. MOTOFIENDXXX says:

    UNBELIEVABLE!!!!  These retards somehow don't know THAT THEY HAVE COMMITTED TREASON AGAINST THEIR OWN COUNTRY?!?!!!!! (they don't know that LEGALLY "THEY ARE UKRAINIAN????")  How does ANYONE "GET THAT STUPID?????"

  43. Zhora Kapustin says:

    The Ukrainian government army and nationalist retaliatory battalions arrange etnichestky cleanings and genocide of the Russian population in the territory of the Ukrainian Donbass. The army uses cassette ammunition on a residential development of the cities from silent support of Europe and active support of the USA. Russia in every possible way resists to it, helps the population to survive, sends humanitarian aid. The population destroyed by Kiev in the Southeast is discordant with policy of huge loan of means at the IMF. For it residents of Ukraine without doubts are destroyed by thousands the president-oligarch Poroshenko and his pro-American government. Each inhabitant of free Europe has to remember that he will be involved by the USA in war and destroyed for the sake of others interests and debts of bankers! Crash of the American dollar is very close, get rid of it is only paper.

  44. Wingalaxi says:

    These recent Vice videos really show the savagery of the Putin-driven rebels. Trouble is, Russia does not live according to international law, which clearly defines the Russia/Ukraine border. Russia is ruled basically by its military, of which Putin is the figurehead. The Russian military believe that war is man's nature, but they want their (self-created) enemies to provide a provocation that will enable them to blame those imaginary enemies and invade. Russia has a psychopathic leadership, the result of centuries of exceptionally dreadful history and the civilised West in particular is in great danger.

    so informative and comprehensive video.

  49. Иван Попов says:

    These soldiers are from donbass, you can tell by the pronunciation. Why russian channels only show russians? Were these just random people, how did you chose whom to interview? 

  50. Zhora Kapustin says:

    The European countries ceased to pursue own policy directed on strengthening of national welfare. In the last 15 years admit the poorest states to the European Union, and then extort from them resources, telling the silly population continually about democracy and mythical liberty of choice. With Ukraine so it will not turn out, there the population will blindly not follow utopian liberal democracy and the civil war unleashed by the USA in this big country will surely and quite naturally be thrown to Europe. The matter is that historically Ukraine is a Russian land, and Russians always won against the enemies in the territory. The ideas of nationalism and fascism cultivated by the USA in Ukraine and which are blindly supported by the European politicians will find the adherents among the liberal public of the European Union. Being lately blindly led by the USA, the united Europe forgets that is on other continent and it has absolutely other economic priorities. Europe does not offer own policy for improvement of life of people and becomes quite natural a colony of the USA. And this country does not improve welfare of the citizens at all, the American government and bankers only exhaust them in mortgage and consumer debts more deeply. Unemployment grows enormous rates and the situation will leave from under control soon, having brought down shaky world supremacy of dollar. Europeans and their national governments according to the Congress have to offer lives of the citizens, cut down the level of national development to a minimum and literally pull out the American economy on the shoulders, having paid for tens years terrible American debts. The USA, significantly increasing the troops by territories of Europe, shows the determination to protect only the interests, very productively bullshitting Europeans about mythical Russian threat.

    Nobody thought about why it is better to be a Russian terrorist, rather than Ukrainian soldier? I will not torment you riddles 🙂 Better to be a terrorist by the word "terror" than a soldier by the word "sold".

  57. Baron Pyotr Wrangel says:

    Like I've seen in many VICE News videos, the DNR people have captured a Ukrainian military person and they're parading him in front of the cameras for propaganda purposes – this is a generally accepted war crime, per the Geneva Conventions.

  58. NEMESIS9415 says:

    As  they  say  in  my  country (Greece)…."Don't  always  fuck  pal! Use  your  penis  to  urinate  from  times  to  times, as  well"! That's  a  form  of  irony  we  use  in  this  country  to  mock  assholes  like  the  "hard  ass"  dude  at  0:06!

    then they should russian should all go in russia their country is already to large they didnt need to steal land of ukraine

  60. Jimmy De La Roca says:

    Actually, you can see how people are reacting. Russians are stupid, acting like dumb animals, always swearing and talking communism nonscences, loosers communist pigs. Well, Ukrainians have manners, good speaking and great thinking, they are good people, who fight for theyr country, not for money, but from communism terror and theyr freedom, so you have the results – fucking russians are just stupid terrorists. Keep up Ukraine!

  61. Степан Беркутов says:

    I felt bad for the Ukrainian tank operator.

  66. 0hn0haha says:

    1:28 : I don't think that the translation of Ukr to Ukrainians is totally correct, even though it may seem so. The rebels have made it pretty clear that they are largely made of of Ukrainians as well; they refer to their enemies as Ukrs because of some researchers claiming that the ancestors of modern Ukrainians were the "Great Ukrs;" and they sometimes speak Ukrainian. It's a more complex conflict than just an ethnic one; it partially is, yes, but there is more to it.

  67. Just Doit says:

    You cant identify as Russian and want to give a part of another country to Russia and then expect it will be easy!But to claim you are being victimised for doing so is just ridiculous!

  68. Chris Stonehouse says:

    A really terrific series of news stories. It's amazing to me that a war is going on in Europe with such little coverage. Thank you VICE News!

  69. Kron Hertz says:

    I feel bad for both sides…
    The DNR and the Ukrainian forces both suffered losses.
    This is the consequences the war when both sides can't settle their differences amicably in a civilized manner.

  71. Дмитрий Кузьмин says:

    Лицо ополченца на многих видео: пропитое, порочное, беззубое, без интеллекта, желающее смерти и жестокой расправы. Лицо военного ВСУ: почти у всех высшее образование, многие занимались бизнесом, свободно владеют англ языком, лицо наделенное интеллектом, не пропитое и не проколоте. Неужели ватникам именно герои с порочными рожами так близки по духу, чем образованные люди умеющие критично мыслить?

  72. Дмитрий Кузьмин says:

    Дебальцево и Углегорск атаковали сепаратисты, стирали с лица Земли его именно они при наступлении. Но дебилы думают, что это ВСУ сами себя окружали и наступали.
