WATCH: ‘The War in Ukraine’

In 2015 and 2017, the Watchdog Media Institute released a 22-part video series on Maidan and Kiev’s war on ethnic Russians. Watch the summary 25-minute film and the entire series here.

Produced and presented by the Watchdog Media Institute, here is a chronological archive of events in Ukraine from the beginning of the Euromaidan protests in November 2013 to the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July 2014. Hundreds of various sources are presented without commentary and in context, allowing the viewer to adequately interpret the information themselves. Research & Editing by: Chris Nolan. Subtitles by: Angelina Siard & Ollie Richardson. This video series presents an invaluable background to the beginnings of the war in Ukraine that eventually led to the Russian intervention on Thursday, a war which Russian President Vladimir Putin said he wasn’t starting, but trying to end.

“MUST WATCH. Take your time, watch it carefully, keep it for reference.” – Pepe Escobar

    Thanks for the links to all the rest! I hadn’t seen this documentary series yet.

    I’ve decided to download these great testimonies of the events as they unfolded then. You never now how long they will remain available in the current state of information repression. However, part 8. “The Donetsk and Lugansk Referendum” seems to be missing. Would it be possible to make it available online again ?

    Thanks in advance, thank you so very much for the excellent journalism, I’m a long time visitor of your website.

    I really would like to watch those, but I never sign into YouTube. I don’t have an account there. Is there a way to watch these without pandering to Google, Twitter, Facebook and other such watchamacallits? By the way, if those videos go anywhere near unmcomfortable truths, it will be just a matter of time until they get deleted.

      There is no need to sign into YouTube. You just have to agree to bypass the age restriction. You do not need an account with YouTube to watch these videos.

        Sorry, CN, but it IS telling me, too, I must sign in. I don’t have a ytube account, either. I see no way to agree to bypass the age restriction.

          That sign-in requirement also gave me pause, but I was so interested I said “what the hell!” When I clicked on the sign-in button it took me to my e-mail sign in, and that followed the usual procedure to get to my e-mail. As soon as all the normal sign in procedure was done the YouTube piece came up. Soooo, it appears that I didn’t sign into YouTube but my e-mail which is Gmail, and Google of course owns YouTube (?).

          Don’ blame you for being wary (so am I) especially considering the nature of the material being accessed. I only watched the 20min synopsis piece – so far.

          Hello CN – you still there? I’m not familiar with MKV/MP4 filetypes. Are they video? Sorry to be so tech un-savvy.

            March 1, 2022 at 10:12

            Yes they are videos.

            Thanks for being helpful, vinnieoh. I really hate to make a google email account, but it might be worth it just for these vids, so I’ll consider.
