[VIDEO] Shep Smith Reports from Inside Ukraine: A Look at Crimea

shep-300x208Fox News’ Shepard Smith traveled to Crimea and filed a report today on exactly what life is like for people there right now. And the big takeaway is that while things “seem better” and relatively normal, Russia still has a hold on “every strategic position there” and so continues to have the upper hand.

He showed how at the airport gate in Crimea, there is scotch tape holding up a Russian flag. Smith said, “The changes are subtle. They are not, in any way, oppressive, but they’re here.” One Crimean woman said she was scared when she saw Russian troops, telling Fox “I thought that it was the beginning of maybe war.”

Smith even got cameras at a Ukranian naval station that Russian troops took over, where people are not allowed to send food or supplies to their loved ones inside, and now the building has become a “tourist attraction.”

As for the optics, Smith noted European hesitance to get on board for sanctions, and so “Putin will most likely tiptoe away from this with no shots fired” while Europe and the West “look helpless.”
