Today: an abducted Ukrainian journalist is released long enough to give a press conference, one of Myanmar’s leading opposition figures dies, a British fighter in Syria gives an up-close and personal look into his makeshift home, and Venezuelan protesters alter an Easter tradition to show discontent for their president.

  1. Venezuelan protests from spoilt rich kids and those conned by the US money pouring in to right wing interests. They firebomb government programs that help the poor. What a movement they have.. it's pathetic. There is so much bullshit propaganda and false flag psyops all across the world right now. It would be nice to see VICE tackle some of it rather than just ride the bullshit train. That would be news worthy.

  2. @Nick … the 'truth' in situations like this ls worth a 1000 lives, but a journalist who exposes the 'lie' and seeks the 'truth', takes a stand, at the cost of his own life, is not just a hero, he is jewel of mankind! … "Evils greatest triumph, is for good men to do nothing " – Edmund Burke

  3. British Jihadist! FIRST ROUSBIF HAZ NUTING 2 DO WIT KEBAB SHIT FACE SCUM! KEBAB GOAT FUCKERS ARE INVADING EUROPE! REPIDING OUR LOVED OONE! HOW DARE HE GIB ROUSBIF BAD NAMZ! REMOVE KEBAB FROM PREMISES

  4. In Ukrainian part the voice is definitely Simon's.  Then how come that Julia Ioffe claims , "Simon Ostrovsky, an American journalist and correspondent for Vice News, has apparently been taken hostage in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk. Vyacheslav Ponomarev, the "people's mayor"—i.e., the guy elected by the pro-Russian rabble—confirmed this at a press conference today."????

  5. funny shit the ukranian journalist said the whole country is in anarchy if you watch the actual report on GrahamWPhillips youtube stream. its in ukrainian have someone interpret for you, VICE is full of shit day in and day out.
     Also her press badge is on display on Rt.com its expired so basically its an ex-reporter lmao. fucking western media

  6. Wait, so… The Pro-Russians – whose whole basis for action thus far has been that such action is on-par with the protests on the Maidan, claiming right of self-determination – have taken a Ukrainian female-militia leader hostage, paraded her outside to give interviews and are now holding her on charges of engaging riot police? During the protests on the Maidan, or…?

    What the actual fuck is going on over there?
