Friends, something heartwarming happened in the last few days on the battleground of Novorussia (SE Ukraine). Two Ukrainian enemy camps (Kiev Ukrainian forces and the SEastern Ukraine forces)––enemies until they met - had a meeting that included guitars, singing and reciting poetry, plus some common goals agreed upon. The power of people-to-people exchanges even between enemies is validated once again! Please note the [ ] brackets where I have inserted a word or two to make the designations easier to understand or remember. Please share this "good news" story with your friends and colleagues.

Something very, very interesting has happened in Novorussia (SE Ukraine)
Something fantastically interesting has happened in Novorussia: two senior Novorussian commanders, Igor Bezler and Alexei Mozgovoi have attempted to communicate with Ukrainian [Kievans] military who are on the other side.
This apparently began when [SE Ukraine Novorussian Commander] Igor Bezler agreed to be interviewed by three TV crews at the same time: a Russian crew, a Novorussian crew, and a Ukrainian crew. The big news here was, of course, that a Ukrainian journalist was given access to the city of Gorlovka, currently surrounded by Ukrainian forces, and that she [note a woman!] got to speak with the local people, including combatants and then that she was given access to Bezler himself. Since all the journalists were more or less openly accusing each other of "filtering the truth" all parties agreed that the full recording, unedited, would be made available on YouTube. Now please keep in mind that in Banderastan [what SE Ukrainians call the Kievans in West Ukraine whom they see as primarily pro-Nazis] are blacklisted, Russian journalists are blacklisted, Russian TV stations banned, and that the people in the junta [in their terms the illegal government of Poroshenko] controlling Ukraine are told that the other side are terrorists and Russian soldiers. Oh, and the Kiev Ukrainian media is the most disgusting, sold out, subservient, propagandistic you can imagine. And then suddenly, at least one Ukrainian TV crew agrees to show the face of one of the most feared Novorussian commanders (SE Ukrainian) and he get's to speak his mind.
