However, there’s been plenty going on in the UK too. Firstly, there was the hugely significant news that the UK are going to prosecute Oldham-born Ben Stimson for fighting on the side of the people’s militia, in Donbass, against the Ukrainшфтn army (despite Ben by all accounts never having taken part in active conflict). This is the first prosecution of its kind, and has major implications, of which I’ve written here.
In other news, about Brits abroad, I was happy to be able to inform you that work is well underway on my new film, made with your support ‘A Brit in Crimea (on his holidays)’.
The premiere will be in the UK in summer, and for the first time, here are some exclusive photos of the filming, which included an interview with a man from Kiev, a pro-Ukrainian from Crimean even, the whole point of this film, and principle – anti-propaganda.
Meanwhile, I’ve been continuing to work on the case of Barry Pring, here in the UK. That’s involved the Ukrainian Embassy in the UK, and here’s my post about what they do, or rather don’t do here in London.
