Utter garbage...
21 October 2019 | by emholbergSee all my reviews

A smear of dirt from the "Ukrainian NAZI junta" point of view - there is nothing else to say about this "movie". It is just another effort to dehumanize the folks in the Eastern Ukraine. The simple truth is that vast majority of westerners have no clue where Eastern Ukraine is located, let along what is happening there. After the criminal revolt in Kiev in 2014, largely supported by USA and EU, Ukraine became a quasy state with aggressive, anti-Russian, neo-Nazi ideology. Among the very first laws passed by the "new" government, was the law that limits the use of the Russian language. Naturally, people in the Eastern regions of the country (+ Crimea) vehemently opposed such a decision and proclaimed that they do not recognize results of the revolt in Kiev's. Then, junta sent troops to deal with rebellious region. That is how the CIVIL war in Ukraine had started. This simple fact is hidden by the layers of lies from the Nazi government in Ukraine. For them, the outer aggressor (Russia) is necessary to justify the corruption in the Ukraine and to sell "Russia-aggressor" hoax to the West. But nothing lasts forever and all lies will see the light of the day.
