Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom is a poignant documentary covering the unrest in Ukraine for 93 days in 2013 and 2014. The documentary is a timeline of sorts of how the unrest in Ukraine unfolded. It gives you a “boots on the ground” viewpoint from the perspective of the activist and demonstrators. I think most people will come away from this film more informed as to the “why” there so much discord and unrest among the people of Ukraine..and why they took to the streets with such passion and vigor.
With Russia flexing it’s muscles in Syria now, and with all of Europe walking on eggshells waiting to see what they do next, learning about what happened and IS happening in Ukraine is paramount in understanding Russia’s devious (and criminal) behavior and how their use of political and hybrid warfare makes them a formidable enemy for the future.
While watching it, ask yourself: How far is the U.S. away from something like this? From a Government enacting a set of tyrannical laws virtually overnight and then reigning down terror on it’s own people for wanting simple freedoms. We are not far away from it folks.
Watch this, it is Definitely worth an hour and a half of your time.
