  1. Mad props to the cameramans, which we never see, but face the same risks if not more…

    Sniper: I see 7 men running. One is holding a camera
    Russian soldier: leave the camera man alone he’s to invincible

    • @David Bowman Yes this is true!

    • @Ben Sashko and you watching to much Ukrainian propaganda? He is right !

      @Don Nwzad In the meantime, CHINA-JOE-BIDEN’s new woke military is drafting 100000 transgender troupes to fight Putin’s mechanized army.
      Xi’s Aircraft carriers are facing American Aircraft carriers in the south China sea.

      GOD, I miss Donald-John-Trump.

      @Raul JR Lara That was after Trump turned their highest general into an ONION RING.
      Israel just destroyed the mullah’s nuclear enrichment capability.

    • Why should America send arms to Ukraine. Why not get the Ukraine’s to build a wall and have the Russians pay for it?😜

    This reported had a conversation with the Ukrainian president with his mask on his chin, and then ran across a sniper fire zone with his helmet in his hands. Why even have them lol

    • Why even have a president if he is going to risk his life in such a foolish way. He shouldn’t have been anywhere near that place.

    • @Aaron Haley damn, crazy story. Getting blasted in the head from 20 feet by a PK has to make for one hell of a headache!

    • @clorox nMe there certainly are some crazy instances of soldiers surviving rifle rounds but I wouldn’t bet my life on it. That being said, I’d still wear one in a war zone.

    • @Benny Harvey yes but these types have already been proven to stop 7.62 rounds dead on at 100m

    • @Billy TheKidder spelling isnt my strong suites. Math and science is.

  4. Russia: Kills 20 soldiers*
    Also Russia: Were just playing around, nothing serious

    Seems like the equivalent of punching someone in the face and not wanting them to hit you back

    • @Sergey Bebenin fake U.S. sponsored “revolution” just like in Syria, you’re not fooling anyone with that rubbish

    • @Monkey Movies Nah, it’s Ukrainian ultra-nationalist puppet fanatics trying to re-occupy Crimea but crying hard cause they lost it.

    • Илья Старинов | April 12, 2021 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      How did you define that 20 soldiers were killed by russians, and not local fighters or any Italians or serbs fighting on the side of the militia?

    • @Sergey Bebenin   yeah just like in ww2 when nazi collaborating war criminals in Ukraine murdered hundreds of thousands of civilians. These criminals are now considered “national heroes” in Washington’s puppet state of Ukraine.

    • @Илья Старинов It’s what the video said, rather our not it’s true is anyone’s guess

  5. 1917

  6. Russia: It’s just an exercise.

    Also Russia: Let’s exercise over that border.

    Reporter goes into a hot zone and leaves his ballistic helmet off. Great idea because once you get a sniper induced headache you wont have to worry about much else.

      @Vladimir Olegovich Nakita is going to nerf that in the next patch 😉

    • Илья Старинов | April 12, 2021 at 9:45 PM | Reply

      t is unlikely that this is a hot zone, since the president is there, even the president of Ukraine

    • @Илья Старинов Yeah you would think he would not be near the front like that? Too much of a high value target.

      She’s not worried the snipers had the day off

    • CNN has single handedly nearly destroyed our country and weakened our democracy over the past four years, so what makes them think the US is in any position to help Ukraine right now? Russia and China know this, they watched it happen and continue to watch it happen, it just doesn’t stop.

  8. This is the best cameraman I’ve ever seen on the CNN network please keep him

    • @William H no, I pretty happy go lucky… I enjoy life and I have had the time of it hard, so much so that my wife and I say ‘we’ve had it much worse’ or ‘can’t get as bad as before’… a lot of people take my abstruse mannerisms for being obtrusive… didn’t mean to sound off, at all…

      Lol. Brain washed ! How can you NOT see this is staged. Fake news. A bunch of guys running thru Pennsylvania civil war grounds acting. Lol. I have a sky bridge to sell you. It floats. Ill put on a white coat and say I’m a Dr while spewing covid propaganda and you’ll believe it. Lol

    • @Christ Soldier laughing while you ask a question that you kinda state the answer to…
      ..I mean I guess we all have to laugh, it helps us get easygoing…. I’ll join in … lol, master of the obvious… it is a shame but I think things will get better, it just looks funny trying to right, upside down world…

    Both Russia and China are increasing military powers in conflict areas. Something is gonna set it off…

    This feels very much like the build up before WWI and WWII.

      @JOHN BOYAJY nuclear war is over rated and if they invaded we wouldn’t nuke China anyways why would we

    • @Fentanyl Floyd China will be walking into an army of millions of Americans that have guns that’s not going to happen it will be nuclear believe me

    • Fentanyl Floyd | April 12, 2021 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      @JOHN BOYAJY I have my faith in Jesus the christ also and he said its more likely America will be invaded like Isreal was invaded by the babaylonians he punished Isreal do u think we get a pass

      @Bill Burgess Biden what’s to provide Winnie the Pooh with honey.

    • @Queen Nita completely agree. If the roles were reversed and the US had another civil war it would be equivalent to Russia sending troops, equipment, and aid to the rebels while threatening the federal government if they intervene with US rebels.

    Protect that 10% for the big guy!!!

  18. “The Russians are ready. But we too, are ready. This is our land, not theirs!” Truth was spoken there. Best wishes to the Ukrainian people.

    • @Aleksa Cerovic you better respect my motherland this is why we are top 1 in the country. You see what the tv shows you!!! You dont know what type of force we have behind the screens lol. So believe what you want but America fought in ww2 and won with our allies, we almost took out your communist country after the fall of the 3rd Reich but our great General Eisenhower gave you mercy. The middle east hates america? So why their armies need our help to train them and give them money. You people are brainwashed by propaganda and hate America bc of what we do? Its war buddy… so what if we dropped nukes? That’s what you get for playing with fire. We will always retaliate for the motherland no matter how. The middle east is lucky we haven’t gone full military on them haha. We can destroy the taliban and their civilization with a few codes so watch your mouth. We actually care about not putting innocent people on danger, rules of engagement!! Without those rules our soldiers would unleash hell🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • @Марина Владимировна lol stop listening to your countries propaganda. You have no idea, but go ahead believe what a communist tells you! What did your founding fathers give you? Ours gave us rights 😂😂 but too bad you had dictators all your life who only cared about themselves

      Kazaki013 Actually, Czarist Russia lost WW1 & surrendered to Germany, which craved Ukraine’s famously deep, rich topsoil. So as the victor, Germany tacked portions of former minor “Empires” Polish, Lithuania, etc., onto the west end of Russian area of modern Ukraine. Read Tolstoy. The first Russian government ever had its capitol in Kiev in the 800s & welcomed the Patriarch of Constantinople – whom the King of Russia had invited to perform mass ceremony of conversion of the pagan Russians to Christianity in the 800.s AD – at the Russian port on Crimea.

    • @Dollbeast Cybervoodoo ha ha ha. What Ukrainians are you talking about, are you trying to tell that pro nazi & neo nazi Western Ukrainians are in love with pro Russia eastern ukrainians? All your comments are so dumb that I suspect you are a bot…. turn yourself off.
