YouTube comment:  Just a few days after Crimeans overwhelmingly voted in a referendum to join Russia, the crisis across the peninsula has taken its first life.  In dispatch 15, VICE News' Simon Ostrovsky attends the funeral of the young Tatar man whose body was found this week after he was beaten by Cossacks.  Despite this death, residents across Crimea are hopeful that joining Russia will bring them a brighter future.
