Sorry, I don't understand Dutch and didn't see an option for subtitles.
Not sure what was the point of the video? The journalists are travel bloggers that like vacationing in Crimea and interviewed a few people?
Almost, they travel to places westerners normally wouldn't visit. After the first few seconds where they complained they had to fly to krasnodar and go by car from there, I already knew the narrative would be anti-Russia because you can fly directly from Moscow to Simferopol which is in the middle of Crimea.
4 years after the annexation, I would think the "intelligent" people who are pro-Ukraine would have left, and the pro-Russians would have stayed to be interviewed. I guess the drunk people did not have the financial means to relocate? Or just grumpy drunk complainers - we have them at the local bar in my town complaining about how bad the street is now there is a new gas station that opened up.
The grumpy drunk complainers are gold really.
- I fled Russia because i was afraid of being locked up.... so you fled to Crimea of all places??? It is inside Russia you dolt!
The Dutch narrative is easy enough to understand, they must be negative, but for anyone watching that blog the obvious is: it is really, really hard to find negative people there.
The guy who ran a local business there (Dutch tourist bureau) is telling all basicly. Everyone is happy, huge investments, infrastructure being repaired, if only those pesky sanctions would leave, his business would skyrocket.
Quote!: The people vote for Russia, lets punish them !!! and if it really was an invasion, it is adding insult to injury to sanction them because the invasion is harm enough. So no matter which truth you believe, the sanctions are being put on the wrong people.
(He was quite pro-Russia actually, and living as a foreigner in Crimea he must know the deal).
- Pro: Investments in infrastructure, government, buildings, tourism.
- Con: You are less 'free' in your opinion (if you believe them drunks).
