I have been aware of the numerous reports by Graham Phillips from Novorussia and I knew that he had been kidnapped by Ukrainian goons not once, but twice. What always touched me in his reports was the visible fondness of the Novorussians for Graham, and in this video below you will see them calling him “Gremchik”.
Not even Graham (terrible!) British accent could be an obstacle for the respect and affection the Novorussians showed him (and in this video, they are clearly upset and distressed at the fact that he got hurt). I know that Graham did not truly “take a bullet for Russia”, but that he probably took it for the cause of honest journalism and I would say for the Truth. But I am also quite sure that for the Novorussians it was “our Gremchik” who took a bullet for “us”.
In my opinion President Putin should bestow the medal “for bravery” to Graham just as he did to that other fantastic reporter, Anastasia Popopva, for her truly heroic reporting from Syria.
Check out the video of how Phillips was wounded below.
He took a shrapnel wound to his lower back and his life is not in danger.
I wish him a prompt recovery and I hope that his work will finally get the recognition it deserves. And even if his courage and integrity are never recognized in the West, his example proves one more time that there is this “other West” which is not hostile to Russia at all and which is principled and honorable.

Really great video work.Those Ukie hyena’s would love to kill Graham.He’s the only Western reporter I know of that reports from the Novorossian side.And does the best work,up there with the Russian reporters.Who are the only ones brave enough to actually report from the front lines.I hope he recovers ok and can continue his work.I admire him for being there and reporting the true story.
Respect for Graham Ferguson.
Sorry, Graham Phillips.
Rumors are Lithuania is supplying weapons to Kiev. And yet they cry foul.

There are people who think when we refer to a collective group that we are in particular to them. Like some latins so identify with the pope that when we point out the bad things some of them have done, we are degrading them in particular.
This is not the case at all, there are some very decent people in every collective and the majority of them are rather normal and neutral. This is the case in every culture and even at the height of madness like the Nazi’s in Germany, most Germans were not nazi’s or bad people, they were just bullied and threatend to go along. This can be seen to a much more extreme level in the US today were a very small minority have taken away the rights of the vast majority and have made the majority suffer unspeakable cruelty. A lot of people remember the good times and think that will come back if they dont rock the boat too much, having not learnt anything of real history as was the goal, they are easily blindsided by bullies into going along.
But we have seen throughout history that the ruling class in anglo saxxon lands have made the masses do their labor no matter what form of government they were told to elect. Who after all wants to go to far off lands and kill natives or die to make these very same rules rich while getting nothing in return. Some brave souls take it upon themselves to do more and let others know the truth of this as they all deserve praise for what they are doing.
Get well Mr. Phillips.
We’re being attacked here (US), and in MOSCOW too! Here’s a video from a native American dissident targeted in Moscow(!) for reporting on our Boston Cabala Ritual by Nathan Folks!

Much respect to Graham made the force be with him
Oh God Saker, that’s so real…poor Grahamm…he’s so brave…
for some reason, when I go to the comment section here, there is no scroll down bar…
Someone did a brilliant job of documenting this unfortunate event.
The camerawork, editing, snd directing tells the story and shows characters quickly and clearly. Really nice work.
Graham has a talented and brave filmamker working alongside him.
The Ukies would love to kill him.
Throughout history only the work of brave reporters and camera persons, photographers and some neutrals have told the the truth of wars like this.
I believe Vietnam would have gone on for another decade if it wasn’t for the honest truth of Neil Davis’s phenomenally brave camerawork for NBC and Dan Rather reporting for CBS , among others who brought us the daily carnage and insanity.
Novorossiya is a war barely covered.
“Other West”…I want that label.
He’s hit by shrapnel. A [marksman’s] bullet would have resulted in an entrance and exit wound.
But that aside, one can only stand in awe when these brave men and women literally lay their lives on the line.
Hat in hand [for all involved].
Get well soon.
He’s Scottish.NOT English.Surprising you cannot here the accent.
I am probably wrong on this, but there is just something about Graham Phillips that dosen’t sit right with me.
A reporter shouldn’t be in the news. In Graham’s case, he has been the subject of the news three times now. At least.
Is it because of his inexperience as a war journalist as his UK or Irish friend explained when he was captured the second time, or is he just genuinely a bit too “gun ho” doing his job, or both? Or is it something else.
In any case, I wish him a speedy recovery and more smarts for the next time!
Suerte, Graham. God recovery
I have some mixed feelings about Graham. At first I thought it was nice that a Western reporter was embedded with the NAF, even though his profound narcissism is very unprofessional and unpleasant. But then I realized that he really does not seem to care about the safety or well-being of the NAF. I am not saying he should war with them – that would also be inappropriate – but he should not endanger them either.
So I have noticed that he films areas that he has been instructed by NAF/DPR not to film. I have noticed that he uploads videos and photos with GPS meta-data, revealing NAF positions, training camps, control centers, etc. In short, he may be an MI6 spy for all I know (many spy agencies use a journalist cover for their agents because it allows them to record and interview without being “suspicious”). His great love for the most evil family in history – the Windsors – add to my concerns.
In any event, I am not accusing him of being an agent – but it would not surprise me. I hope NAF is very careful and does not trust him with any information that could damage them. I also hope they tell him if he uploads one more photo or video with GPS coordinates of a fixed facility (training, command, rest, safe-house, whatever) that threatens op-sec, that he will lose his privileges.

Unfortenately not translated. Anyone who can?
Dutch secret services have rejected Ukrainian claims that the Dutch foreign minister Koenders was ever subject of a ‘terrorist attack’ in Kharkov on November 8, as claimed by the SBU. The Ukrainian farce is clearly backfiring at their credibility (if any) and Elsevier even goes so far to link the Kharkov war propaganda to MH17:
Good comment on RT:
“World leaders and all countries of the world should now give cookies to the USA protestors and also pledge support and lethal weapons like machine guns and bombs to the USA protestors to fight against the USA Government.”
A northern lad.Great sort.
Regarding journalism, did anyone read the RT transcript of the exchange between Anissa Naouai and Christiane Amanpour?
Anissa ROCKED! She’s so smart.
Down with the Christiane Amanpour, the state dept’s prostitute propagandist posturing as a journalist!!!
respect to Graham Phillips!
There’s justice for you in the U.S re Ferguson. :(
Anyway, they have another potential riot awaiting them in Cleveland Ohio….as yesterday a Police Officer shot dead a 12 yr old black boy Tamir Rice.
The Police in the US are far too trigger happy….they’re probably think they’re still in the Wild West days.
@ CalDre who said…

… So I have noticed that he films areas that he has been instructed by NAF/DPR not to film. I have noticed that he uploads videos and photos with GPS meta-data….
How and where do you find meta-data on Youtube? I’ve seen this mentioned before, but am mystified how to find it? could you explain, please?
Interesting new documents hacked by CyberBerkut team :
We, CyberBerkut, have already warned against inadmissibility of the Washington’s interference in internal affairs of our country. Moreover, we repeatedly claimed our rejection of Kiev authorities’ antinational policy which had put Ukraine in dependence from the USA.
During two-day visit of Joseph Biden to Kiev on November 20-21 we gained access to confidential files of the State Department that had been stored on American delegation member’s mobile device.
Today we are ready to acquaint Ukrainian citizens, the USA and the world community with the documents that uncover the real volume and direction of American aid to “settle” the Ukrainian crisis.
After examination of just a several files there is the impression that the Ukrainian army is the branch of US Armed Forces. The volume of US financial assistance amazes with its scale. They also show the highest level of degradation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Besides, thousands of dollars go on personal accounts of military personnel and used by certain officers in personal needs. What will the American taxpayers say?
Documents signed by Kiev and foreign authorities speak for themselves:
One of the most surprising documents. The Naval Command begs it’s foreign masters to sponsor Ukrainian officers during military exercises headed by the Pentagon on the Ukraine territory. And what about national pride?
Besides, what’s the point of transferring more than a half million UAH on a card account of LCDR Denis Stupak? It cannot be explained. Except for uncontrolled spending and enriching without paying taxes. Perhaps it would be very interesting for Ukrainian and American journalists to find this officer and ask him a couple of questions.
Kind regards, Dutchie
re: Graham Phillips…he is “gung-ho” and bless him for that! All kinds of personalities are needed in every social struggle. He is kind of a “holy fool” type…let us hope he does not martyr himself too soon by needlessly placing himself in danger( hopefully he learned not to do that after he was expelled by the Ukies earlier this year). After all if you are filming people you do take up in the rear which is usually the safer position ( field medics are placed there by their unit when they go out on patrol).
Throughout all these months of civil war in Ukraine there have been a number of journalists out there putting their lives at risk. Sadly we hear about them in Twitter feed or independent blogs when they get injured/killed; news about this situations are in the back of the MSM, if there are news about them at all. Some of them have been taken as hostages and beaten by the Ukies. Again, almost no word about these cases. There are a number of “western” journos out there, quietly doing their work, like Patrick Lancaster or Mark Bartalmai. In this blackout context, some of them go out of their way to make people aware of what is really happening. While I agree that no journalist should be “the” news, it’s very simplistic to put the blame on the journalist. You don’t study to be a war correspondent, you become one being in the line of fire and taking risks and certainly an amount of recklessness is needed in order to do so. Take a look at Dmitry Steshin or Aleksander Kotz from KP, for example. Graham Phillips is very well known and liked in Russia and Novorossiya, up to the point that the Ukies have fixed a price for his head. It has been a very interesting experience watching his work improve for some months now. I’d rather see him as a war correspondent in the making than labeling him as spy. It certainly helps to keep in mind that the Ukie forces, for all their stupidity, know perfectly well where the Novorossiyan forces are, regardless of what they see on the news or YouTube. Sorry, I just can’t picture them running around the streets in Peski or Avdeyevka trying to catch the best signal, huddling around a tablet and waiting for a Graham Phillips video to find out where the separatists are.
On another news, Gleb Kornilov was also injured. Gleb Kornilov is a singer who has been donating military supplies to Novorossiyan units. Per Colonel Cassad using Google translation:
–It should also be recalled that just yesterday wounded gumanitarschik Gleb Kornilov during a visit to Donetsk airport. “snatched a bullet wound to the lower abdomen. The bullet entered at 5 mm from the bottom of the plate Bronicas and went through the whole body. Too lazy to put on the groin plate and here is the result. 4 bullets Armor kept, but the last plague still decided to take a closer look, ” Kornilov underwent surgery and his life is not in danger as well.–
A speedy recovery to Graham and Gleb.
There is another western journalist producing videos in Novorussia:
A fortnight ago when 7 were killed at Donetsk airport (and that also included a war correspondent from Novorossia TV) Strelkov made a statement that it was the fault of Givi for “flirting with the press” letting them film the locations, thus helping the enemy locate them. Next airport movie, they sarcastically told the journo not to film the gun, so the enemy won’t know where it is. Then they promptly fired 8 shells from it. So I guess they still don’t know where the gun is???
Graham’s videos take a day to go on air and many are from the airport; there would be nothing new in them for the enemy.
Some Ukie units actually seem to have drones, Now the USA has given them 3 mortar-radars, that can pinpoint where mortar fire is coming from, with a view to knocking it out. These are about 4ft across and taller, and need to be placed somewhere high, so I hope they quickly become good targets for a well-aimed Manpad.
“Graham (terrible!) British accent…”
I would much rather listen to Graham’s accent than an American accent any day.
Believe it or not, but I think that simple small things like these lead to wars won. Not the hi-tech equipment, but things like “Grahamchik”.
