The Road to Slavyansk

Aleksandr Agranovich, codename 'Sailor,' was once a simple factory worker. However, after his city came under attack by the Ukrainian army, everything changed. He joined the Donbass militia and has fought to protect the civilians of Slavyansk for nine years now. In May 2022, Agranovich tripped a mine and lost his leg. Yet, to this day he remains the company's commander and fearlessly rushes to the front lines when needed. He says that despite losing his leg, he can become a full-fledged fighter “easily in about two months.” The man’s dream is to return and liberate his hometown of Slavyansk, restoring peace to thousands of its residents. Find out more about Donbass militiamen and why they had to take up arms, in our new documentary.
