  1. At 5:40 reporter said its weird for serbians to be at Crimea. Why? Yet you dont think its weird that the U.S has 70 or more bases around the world and playing police men where their not even welcomed. I think he made it clear in the begining that there is long time cooperation between the 2 countries and that they were requested as volunteers to see the referendum to proceed without bloodshed. What is weird about that?

    Why doesnt Vice a U.S sponsered propaganda tool used by the Pentagon, to answer why does the U.S have so many bases on foreign soil, some spaning decades. I think that should be seen as weird.

  2. Yet another proxy war between the US and Russia…..that's all it is. The unfortunate thing is that many people die unnecessarily in these wars, normally the big two nations don't get involved but this time the Russians are up to their neck in it.
    They'll deny it, of course, but it's hard to hide many soldiers funerals for long .

  3. The Ukrainians think if they join the EU they suddenly will become like the Germans or French and treated the same way but that won't happen. Like it didn't happen to Bulgarians, Romanians etc.. They are all treated as second class citizens in rich European countries.

  4. Unfortunately, they all drank the kool-aid offer by the crook Putin. Now he will steal their money, build another palace in Crimea. Learn to read, educate yourselves, stop listening to the Putin run propaganda news. Learn what it's like to be truly free from oppressive governments. Putin doesn't care if you sacrifice your life, or your childrens. You mean nothing to him. Russians are being murdered in so called, free democratic elections in Russia. No such thing as democratic in Russian. Putin, like Hilter, Lenin, Moa, etc….are all acting in their own interest. Peace, an the education of the masses(cure for ignorance), is the only solution to needless deaths.

  5. Slobodan Milosevic was a scumbag and violated many human rights and committed horrendous acts upon his people.
    How is trying to assassinate him a BAD thing? VICE WHY ARE YOU TWISTING THINGS TO PUSH YOUR POLITICAL AGENDA, YOU CAN'T EVEN DO IT RIGHT YOU TWATS
