Patrick Lancaster ( and team member Sasha ) have a conversation with an administrator in the Kherson regionSun 8:34 am Europe/London, 12 Jun 2022 4
Patrick has a conversation with a confident, fluent Ukrainian who has lived and travelled in many parts of the world, thus gaining knowledge of many cultures which he compares to his own. (Paraphrasing – “Anglo-Saxons do not understand that we are not (NA) Indians. We are perceived as a third-rate world which they can loot as they like as they have done in Africa and Latin America.”)
An informative as well as interesting interview, an unusual opportunity for Patrick’s team.

On 24th of February 2022 Russian forces began to come over the border from Crimea into the Kherson region of Ukraine. Almost imidiatly the Ukrainian forces and government representatives retreated from the region leaving the area in control of the Russian forces. Russian forces installed and new government made up of local pro Russian residents. This government has announced a tentative plan for the Kherson region to become part of Russia. In the following weeks after Russia ariving some pro Ukrainian residents held protests where some violence was reported. From our time here we can confirm that there are many not only pro Ukrainian people here but also a large number of pro Russian people.

Patrick’s looking well in civvies, and doesn’t appear to be starving. Good video. I think I must be learning to speak Russian too. It’s almost as if what they’re saying appears at the bottom of the screen.
Hope y’all know I’m joking bout the subtitles. My sense of humour sometimes backfires.
Of course, Ian.
A bit like James Corbett remarking on people not “getting” his sense of humour, satire, etc.
Thank you danceaway, you’re a pal.
