Good on him.

I had thought on & off about applying in the early stages of the conflict, especially after the Bucha massacre. One night after reading of some of the atrocities, I went to bed and felt a sense of calm peace resonate when I had ‘decided’ it was time to stop reading & start doing - and get myself over there.

Obviously I didn’t end up going, nor even googling how to apply…



Huge respect for the folks who actually followed through and stepped up, especially those with families. Good on them

A buddy from my unit quit and joined what turned to be a warlord group. He's since left and joined the actual Ukrainian Army. Apparently he's now Ukrainian VDV.

Actually found out this week my wife's cousin left the CAF and is now in the foreign legion. Was a reserve runner in Vancouver, no idea what his wife thought.....

These kind of groups helped keep the bad guys at bay in 2014, too - although the professional army is loads better now.

Clearly, Sweden and Finland, as fellow hockey loving countries, used their links through the hockey arena to shape this.
