Please take the time to view this film about Ukraine.  It is not the same view as seen by our media.   There are several different translation in addition to Russian and English.

There are numerous factual inaccuracies that make this sort of propaganda worthless.

Certainly S. Bandera was not a choir boy, was J. Stalin who committed genocide in the millions any less despicable? What bothers me is this onslaught and justification of Pro-Russian rewriting of even recent history to fit there invasion and decimation of a sovereign nation that not even 20 years ago ago they guaranteed to respect.

Are we so debased that one can not understand how evil this is?

The time line to start with.

But yes it is fascinating though long to watch. It is sort of amazing but also sobering to listen to the Kremlin try to justify there military actions in Ukraine.

Thank you Yankee.

I did not find anything inaccurate with the time line. He seemed to indicate the actual trouble actually sparked to ignition in 2004 and was ablaze in 2014 after the influence of Obama, Bidan and Nuland. That same year the security for Russia was an obvious concern for Putin. I found the entire clip quite truthful and explanatory
