WATCH: A Brit in Crimea (on his holidays) 2018

A life-affirming and (somewhat) non-political video for the holiday weekend. British freelance reporter Graham W. Phillips takes a longtime friend on an exploration of Crimea, getting a personal perspective on life there 4 years after its “annexation” by Russia following the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine. Phillips rose to prominence for his brave frontline reporting of the Washington-sponsored “Anti-Terror Operation” and subsequent civil war in Ukraine. Here he is in lighter mode. We hope he gets the chance to make more such films in the future, and that we get the chance to watch them.

This film was to be shown at a British film festival this year, but the invitation to a public screening was withdrawn, apparently in response to the Skripal event

Another Guardian CIA stenographer has compared Russia and Crimea with China and Taiwan in the sense that Russia ‘illegally’ ‘invaded’ Crimea. No mention of past history, reforendum, Russia legally having a naval base, US already making plans to take over the Crimean base etc., etc.

I enjoyed this very much, though the special effects at the start were a bit off-putting. But, it was a heartfelt film and well worth watching to understand the situation in Crimea better. Made me want to visit Crimea, actually. The zoo was something else, sitting down and cuddling full-grown lions! Never been to a zoo like that before.

Wonderful video. Crimea is absolutely beautiful and a great place to visit. It is time for Western nations to accept a fact of life, that Crimea is a salient part of Russia and will be so for many more centuries. It is too late to shed crocodile tears about its reconnection to Russia proper and too late to rue Americas destruction of Ukrainian democracy that created the desire in Crimea to return to the Mother country. What was started by the US is done!
