The British Sky News correspondent, who visited the Ukrainian city of Dnipro, said he saw hundreds of volunteers to fight, while others preferred to provide support in other ways.
The column of volunteers fighting against the Russian troops stretched in front of the center, and it seemed as if a spontaneous army was forming in the center of the city.
The volunteers brought their identification papers with them, and some of them brought laminated bags, and the military experience of these people is either non-existent or limited.
Igor Vyazovoy, a middle-aged man, says of why he wanted to fight: “I have a good job. I make aluminum windows and aluminum frames for big buildings, but I have to fight now.”
And the reporter asked him: “Are you ready to fight and take the gun?”
And his answer was: “Maybe I had some doubts before, but now I’m definitely ready, this is war.”
Next to him was a woman who worked as a bank manager, Katizina Kozy.
Katizina said she has two daughters, but that did not stop her from volunteering.
The reporter repeated the same question: “Are you ready to carry a gun?”
The Ukrainian woman believed that she was capable of this, although she only fired at the shooting range.
“Actually, I don’t have much experience, but I’m a quick learner,” she said.
“But you might get injured and get hurt,” the reporter asks
“We are already hurt, we are suffering,” she said. “I’m tired of being afraid, and that’s why I want to do something.”
Before the outbreak of the war, Ukraine opened the door to volunteering for those who can bear arms, and on Sunday, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that he had ordered the opening of the door to volunteering in an international corps of volunteers from abroad.
