Following the last two entries I now present things mostly from Ukraine. The last ones are not but are definitely good for context. They range back a month or two sometimes which has led to me doing a rather long search on YouTube. I hope you find them interesting.
The first from May 2022 is actually an American who did volunteer work helping distribute food in areas around Kyiv that had been occupied by the Russians for a period.
UPDATE 17 July 2022: You can find much negative about Johnny FD’s past and the period in the months before he posted either of these two vlogs. This is a reasonable example of such critique.
While it is clear that YouTube vloggers like Johnny FD should never be relied upon for unbiased, insightful analysis of world events or a replacement for professional journalism, there is still hope that travel vloggers can add important views from the people they meet.
Indeed — and the people he meets do have much to show us and tell us.
This is a gentler one — self-explanatory I think.
The next one is from an active participant who before the invasion had a travel vlog. Here he deals very convincingly with a key piece of Russian propaganda. Of course you must judge for yourself, but I believe him. He has been barred by the way from entering Russia for 50 years….
Now two documentaries from a very interesting German/French channel. They return us to Russia too. They are expertly subtitled in English.
