In his coverage of the Ukraine-Russia crisis, a journalist working in Ukraine demonstrated his language skills by switching between six languages.
Philip Crowther, an international affiliate correspondent for The Associated Press, has produced a montage of himself discussing on fresh events in the region in English, Luxembourgish, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German.
Russia has dispatched troops to eastern Ukraine, claiming to be engaged in “peacekeeping,” but the United States accuses Russia of creating a pretext for war. Yesterday, the British Prime Minister convened a Cobra meeting to discuss what action the UK will take, and agreed to put penalties on Russia, though some feel they are insufficient.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s President Zelensky responded by saying that his country is not terrified and will not bow to Russian pressure.
According to Crowther’s website, his film has been viewed over 3 million times and has garnered 33,000 likes from enthusiastic viewers. Crowther was born in Luxembourg to a British father and a German mother and is based in Washington.
