    9:05 Oh yeah he’s defending them by swinging a weapon at them.

  2. jay Gee on March 2, 2023 at 2:15 am

    isnt funnt how they had to do war pictures and all of sudden they put Jan 6 riots???? lol what ever happen to BLM riots? hypocrites

  3. Neosapiant on March 2, 2023 at 2:16 am

    Запад продолжает снабжать Украину оружием, наступит момент, когда мы поймём, что для меньших потерь стоило разбомбить всё в пыль, как западные союзники бомбили Дрезден или Хиросиму и Нагасаки.

  4. Shirley Janzeneen on March 2, 2023 at 2:17 am

    What is this guy saying? I danced with the devil, make cool pictures, and I got rich doing it!

  5. Gavin Harding on March 2, 2023 at 2:18 am

    He is with Ukraine soldiers, yet it’s Russian soldiers tying the people to poles 😏 our propaganda is so bad it’s a joke 😏 our papers reported on ukraine doing it, yet American intelligence vice still lies 😏

    The “Ukrainian War” what a joke.
    Don’t you mean “The American Tax Payers War to cover up the crimes Hunter Biden committed in Ukraine “?
    When will people open their eyes and see this is nothing more then the largest money laundering scandal ever in history.
    Let’s not forget how Zalenski took time DURING A WAR to do a Vogue photo shoot, then show up to the White House in a Track Suit to pick up his allowance.
    But keep letting the main stream media dictate what you know….

  8. Puntastic on March 2, 2023 at 2:21 am

    You need to stop writing misleading video titles. This is not about Urkaine, this is about all the conflicts this guy has covered. Same with your video about "Afghanistan Death Valley" which is not about Afghanistan but about a photographer’s work alongside the US army in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc. Stop clickbaiting Vice, you’re better than this.

  9. Bee Cee on March 2, 2023 at 2:23 am

    Damn, I would hate to be that guy tied and taped to a pole on the thumbnail. Now thats Terrible.

  10. Sasuke BUCHICI on March 2, 2023 at 2:24 am

    During the war, when the police mostly went to war – where Russian tanks are marching near their city, people themselves caught thieves who broke shop windows or climbed into people’s houses, out of 20 such photos – only one with potatoes in her mouth, you chose local inflection, which is not equal to all such cases. If you do not show what will happen to people who steal during the war – they will be tied up and a shame for life, this is the easiest option, the first days of the war – this no longer happened after 1 month when the situation stabilized. The victims of your stupid head are the audience.

  11. DrinkWarden on March 2, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Why is the number nine so sassy? Because she can’t even!

  12. End Times Lips on March 2, 2023 at 2:25 am

    this war if just for money laundering run by Biden administration. for good he say for shake my election

  13. Blake Goulds on March 2, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Funny how all the middle eastern wars it’s the young men who run away and leave the women and children behind. Cowards with no honor.

  14. str8organic38mm on March 2, 2023 at 2:26 am

    I forget how much I am surrounded by the refugees of this war in southern California it makes me so sad seeing this imagery and the stores behind it

  15. King Ping on March 2, 2023 at 2:26 am


  16. Katie Varney on March 2, 2023 at 2:26 am

    Ukraine needs a new leader. All of this is sad but that guy is not a good guy. America is being poisoned and we’re just giving them billions of dollars for what?? We’re all going to be in this boat soon.

  17. Gavin Harding on March 2, 2023 at 2:28 am

    The Vice President wasn’t in the building 😏 and surely January six was democracy in action 😂😂 that’s what they say the Ukrainian demonstrations,deaths,destruction and coup was 😂😂😂😂

  18. A Br on March 2, 2023 at 2:30 am

    They are Terrorists the army soldiers

  19. Matej Dolár on March 2, 2023 at 2:30 am

  21. Gavin Harding on March 2, 2023 at 2:34 am

    You can see the blue ribbon on the dead soldier😏 that’s Ukraine marking

  22. Petr Bláha on March 2, 2023 at 2:36 am

    And what if the so-called "Ukrainian looter" was not a looter? Where did the critical judgment end?

  23. Sokol10 on March 2, 2023 at 2:36 am

    3:24 SKS semi-automatic riffle is old, but not a "hunting riffle".

  24. MUSTER THE ROHIRRIM on March 2, 2023 at 2:37 am

    The War started 2014. When usa elements overthrew the democratically elected. A coup.

  25. Lb Co on March 2, 2023 at 2:38 am

    3:25 … that isn’t a “hunting rifle.” It’s a Soviet made semi-auto SKS combat rifle.

  26. Ron Freitas on March 2, 2023 at 2:44 am

    Zelinsky is a war criminal who has been murdering the people in Donbass innocent Russian speaking civilians murdering them for the last 8 years

  27. manfrommontreal on March 2, 2023 at 2:45 am

    Photographer or profiteer? You decide.

  28. James Kelleher on March 2, 2023 at 2:45 am

    pigs defending corrupt politcians

  29. zonya on March 2, 2023 at 2:47 am

    The baby tiger looks like it doesn’t want to be there

  32. nidal shehahadeh on March 2, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Russia was and is acting in self-defense after eight years of the ukrainians killing Russians within their borders .

  33. OMW99 on March 2, 2023 at 2:49 am

    I came into the video for the guy on the pole, and only saw 2 minutes and nothing, worthless, will never subscribe to baited news.

  34. MarleyManDatsme on March 2, 2023 at 2:51 am

    I see ukraine as afganistan 2.0…… russias motives as nationalism , racism… nato militarism all while the worlds supply of everything dwindles

  35. Shirley Janzeneen on March 2, 2023 at 2:51 am

    To take pics of people who will die, is nothing but taking pics so you can get rich, it means nothing else! Bastard.

  36. google Limp on March 2, 2023 at 2:51 am

    very very cool photos man

  37. Rick Sanchez on March 2, 2023 at 2:54 am

    you lied. trump never said he was marching on the capitol. no need to lie. be truthful.

  38. Young Ulrich on March 2, 2023 at 2:56 am

    Man with Tiger is a scumbag

  39. Ron Freitas on March 2, 2023 at 2:58 am

    Ukrainian Nazi government was installed by the Obama Biden administration in 2014. The Nazi Ukrainian government and Ukrainian Nazi military have been bombing Russian speaking civilians in Ukraine and has murdered thousands of them.

  40. P. A. Andrews on March 2, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Time has really changed in the past 10 months or so not Russians are winning the war. After the black Nazis were caught with the bribe money in 1995, and the Nazi women in S.W. Ar. In the war on the Working Class of the USA, and the world.

  41. Paul D.B on March 2, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Gonna give it a dislike for that last 2 minutes tacked on. Lost my respect with that bullshit.

  42. Anand Sharma on March 2, 2023 at 3:01 am

    Humanity. Capable of such ingenuity and industry, as well as such brutality and barbarism. Strange species.

  43. yerroc on March 2, 2023 at 3:01 am

    The rifle at 3:23 isn’t a hunting rifle, it is an SKS with a bayonet stored on it as well. Any gun can be a hunting rifle of course, but this was designed for military use by the soviet union. Still a nice picture taken

  44. Tom T on March 2, 2023 at 3:05 am

    It took nine minutes to get to the anti- Trump stuff.

  45. FahhCuee on March 2, 2023 at 3:06 am

    Not even the Russians care about the Russians.

    Ukraine: kicking teeth in, since Feb 24, 2022‼️💪🏼🙌🏼🤘🏼

  46. Jonathan Hurst on March 2, 2023 at 3:08 am

    "the hunting weapon" bud thats an sks… it has a folding bayonet are people stabbing deer in yugoslavia

  47. Marko G on March 2, 2023 at 3:09 am

    Aww I’m so sad now, more biased journalism. Time to put a Ukranian flag in my bio

  48. utsav yadav on March 2, 2023 at 3:11 am

    it creates doubt on humanity

  49. MacRob2007 on March 2, 2023 at 3:13 am

    The station footage actually showed people going to Russia this fake bullshit of one side being so superior is utter crap. propaganda on top of propaganda, and when Ukrainians true military casualties will be reported and I mean the true amount then there will be utter shock and disbelief, that the west prolonged the killing of Ukrainians, while hiding it and claiming all Ukrainian deaths were civilians. .

  50. Ron Freitas on March 2, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Watch "Ukraine was ready to attack Donbass in early March with 100,000 NATO-trained Ukrainian soldiers" on YouTube
