Heroes of Donbass. Battalion Commander

Aleksandr was a successful businessman who featured on the cover of magazines. However, when the special military operation began, he and his wife Anya could not sit idle. Aleksandr, whose codename is ‘Wingman’, volunteered to join the Chechen ‘Akhmat’ battalion to fight Ukrainian nationalists in Donbass. In a short time, he rose from being a private to the commander of a battalion of 400 soldiers. Anya, meanwhile, began to raise funds for the necessary equipment for her husband’s mission. Despite relentless shelling and constant danger, Anya lives with Aleksandr in Donbass and supports his every move. Where does this couple find such courage and determination to remain together amid the turmoil?
