UKRAINE VIDEO OF THE DAY: Russian Soldiers Attack VICE News Journalist Simon Ostrovsky (Video)

VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky travels to the Kherson region of mainland Ukraine to both the Ukrainian and Russian checkpoints. At the Ukrainian checkpoint, Simon goes inside one of their tanks, and speaks to the commander, who says that despite his Russian blood he will defend all invaders. But at the Russian checkpoint, the exchange isn’t quite as cordial.

The Russians attacked and detained him.

An icon of Mother Mary and the Christ Child sits on a Ukrainian tank. This is something that is forbidden in the United States.

Simon Ostrovsky also reports that Russia has already moved outside of Crimea into Ukraine.
