Scanning the web today for various information I ran across this video from the twitter feed of RT reporter Graham Phillips in Ukraine. The honesty of the piece, the bitter truth it entails, it tells me who is honorable and who is not in the east vs. west tug of war that has gone on there.

In the video you see Pro-Russian separatists honoring the dead of their enemies. Watch the video with English subtitles and see if you can detect a certain humility and matter of fact honesty too. What’s more compelling for me as a former soldier are the faces and attitudes of the Novorossiya soldiers. It’s poignant to note, these men are defending the place they were born.
Graham Phillips, for those who do not know, has been reporting on the Ukraine situation since the onset of the violence there. Captured by the Kiev forces, detained and summarily thrown out of the country, Phillips has persisted in trying to bring the real story of the carnage there to the world. Some of the most relevant and up close coverage of this situation has been reported by the sheer determination of this courageous reporter.
