The Reluctant Soldier



I have frequently written about how the self defense forces in the Donbass (eastern Ukraine near the Russian border) came together in 2014 after the US directed Kiev regime began shelling their own citizens.

Miners, shop keepers, teachers, electricians, musicians and the like formed local militias so they could defend their families and their land that were being mercilessly attacked after the 2014 US engineered coup d'├ętat took over the 'government' in Kiev.

This short interview really touches me as the man clearly displays his desire to hang on to his humanity as he goes through this terrible period of having to fight to protect his family from the Washington-Brussels war on the people of the Donbass region - whose only crime is they live near the Russian border.

May this war end soon - but sadly it appears the corporate controlled regime in Washington is more committed than ever to expanding the attacks on the people of eastern Ukraine.
