Last week I posted the first of my videos on Russia’s military bases inside Ukraine. Covering the large and growing one at Svobodne, near Ukraine’s southern coast, its encouraging to see it viewed almost 1,500 times on YouTube.
For the next video, we’ll be staying in the Donetsk Oblast (province), but moving north, up towards the town of Torez. Just outside it, resides one of Russia’s largest bases. Being close to the border, like Svobodne, it’s also used as a transit hub for Russian forces entering and exiting Ukraine. Hope to have the video out later this week.

Also, along with the videos, I’ll soon start a series of blog posts detailing all the info about each base.
