  1. That is why I worry about our reporters over there God bless them all & keep them safe Sick of Russia & their very sick leader Shame on them all

    1. @thalentekhuluse2829Β  that wasn’t our country, that was two war criminals, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  2. Condolences to all the families of Ukraine, who lost their loved ones
    RIP to all the bravest people defending Ukraine.

    1. Love how the military industrial complex is using the media to manipulate the emotions of the people to achiever their goal of selling more weapons.

  3. I’ve seen a video of Ukrainian paramedics, the lady said the Russians always strike the same spot at least twice. Please tell your reporters, that could save their lives.

    1. They’ve been inn Ukraine for so long, I’m sure they know it. This sick tactics has been used since the start of the invasion

  4. Think of the NONSENSE of “avoiding escalation” by not giving Ukraine certain weapons system!

    1. Amen! If we don’t arm them with long range missiles and the foundation to have F16 Jets, I’m afraid they may not survive. God bless them Heavenly Father God, and help to change the hearts of all Allie’s to arm them to win this war in Ukraine, protect them from all harm and destruction, asking this in Christ Jesus most holy name, Amen! God Bless Ukraine! Slava Ukraine! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ™₯οΈπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

    2. Yes give Ukraine F-35s and subs and nukes, let’s see how many countries have access to the weapons black market

    1. πŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’ͺπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ’•πŸ’•

  5. Does anyone in Putin’s army ever question ” why are we here and why are we doing this? ” apparently not! Smh

    1. Did USA soldiers ever questioned going to Iraq, Afghanistan,Libya or Sudan, absolutely not,when your nation calls you for duty you do as obligated.

    2. @Martin Chitembo the nazis were the same way ” we were just following orders ” that doesn’t cut it anymore lol

    3. @Adam Briceland The Nazis manifest themselves in their atrocities against civilians and prisoners, as Ukrainian soldiers are doing now, they torture, shoot, rape, and so on. So speak for yourself, not for everyone!

  6. Always impressive to hear Fred Pleitgen speak perfect fluent english, knowing that he’s a german native speaker. πŸ‘
    I wish him all the best! Greetings from Germany!

    1. @Markus Rother hey YouTube professor I didn’t capitalize English!! Incel arguing on YouTube all day .

    2. Actor Boris Kodjoe is German, didn’t speak English until going to college in the U.S. to play tennis. He sounds like a regular African American guy. Absolutely incredible.

  7. Thanks giving to the helmsman CNN for distributing this vital news regarding the missile attack in Ukraine by the Russian troops and after violating the international laws again and again.

  8. This was a double tap., they hit once to draw in emergency services then hit again to kill said response.

  9. I worry about having reporters on the ground – I don’t want to hear that we’ve lost a reporter due to a bombing! This guy is more than just brave to be there showing what is actually going on….all the war crimes that Russia and Putin is committing! While understanding that video footage will prove Putin’s crimes, and so a necessary job for this reporter! Please be safe Fred!!

  10. He’s feeling self conscious about his pronunciation of Kramatorsk after hearing the anchor’s pronunciation. This is awful, though. I can’t imagine ignoring this kind of stuff everyday while defending Putin. All because Trump idolizes men like him, who will flatter him while using him at the same time. I grew up with a narcissist, who had a LOAD of horrible people use him the same way. I’m sure Putin knows exactly how to do it, given who ends up being the most powerful in Russia.

  11. 40 – 50 yards …stay alert Fred ,that was pretty close looks like it was fired at the search & rescue operation ,Putin only have larger ordinances left ,which are out of Ukraine’s range

  12. The fighter jets will probably arrive in a few weeks with trained pilots from Poland, Germany, UK and US … because of obvious reasons these western fighters are totally different from the USSR MiG etc. and can not be operated without years of training

  13. Poland already sends fighter jets to Ukraine as donation but names them as “spare parts”. german government promised to send 14 Leo2 but good news is that germany have 550 Leopard2 tanks that should be sent to help Ukraine, even more germany have 140 fighter jets that should be sent to help Ukraine.

    1. Where did you get the information that Germany has 550 Leopards? There are around 320 or so left in Germany after most of them were sold after the end of the cold war. If any of the remaining tanks or fighter jets, you are mentioning, were to be given to Ukraine, this would directly cut into Germanies military ability to conduct its NATO obligations, eg. it’s forward presence in the Baltic states.

  14. @1:48 “This time it was two S-300 missiles that struck in that seconds strike, these are normally used to shoot air planes, if they are used against ground targets they are very inaccurate”
    Instead of saying that 2 Ukraine S-300 missiles hit buildings used to intercept an enemy missile, we get this fairy tail, where inaccurate ground to air missiles hit same building.
    Do people even think how these tings work?
