The Ukrainian War against Russian backed factions has been one of the sore spots on the Vladimir Putin’s reign. Although initially denied and explained away as a local conflict, it has become evident that this war has been Vladimir Putin making. After all, you don’t get that much Russian equipment and military “advisors” without the Russian strongman approval.
Marred by a popular uprising after some political gaffes by the Ukrainian government, Ukrainians have been under siege ever since. With access to the sea on the line Russia decided in 2014 that Crimea was too strategically important as to leave it for Ukrainians, despite the fact of being part of their country. Like in all war, there are always reconnaissance units scouting the enemy. Here we get access to footage from one of the Ukrainian reconnaissance units on the front line.
