Warning: Disturbing video content
Here is a capsule of videos showing the Russian invasion of Ukraine from the point of view of Ukrainian soldiers and citizens. These videos were posted on March 2, 2022.
The following videos were provided to the press by the Ukrainian consulate in Chicago. The Bloomingtonian cannot independently verify the content in these videos, but the founder of the Bloomingtonian reported from Ukraine in 2014 and is versed in the region. These videos appear to be factual, however, the captions, while useful, are from a Ukraine point of view.
Covering war is obviously extremely dangerous, but this information helps show what is happening there. We’ll continue to monitor this source of information, and post videos if relevant. Although we did notice today some of these videos are older. Keep in mind, this material is coming from a war zone, where power and access to the internet may be limited, or not available at all, and the Russian military is currently trying to surround the two largest cities in Ukraine to lay siege to them.
Russia invaded Ukraine beginning February 24, 2022.
