Russell Bentley has been on my show before and is an inspiration, so I invited him back.
For context, take a listen to his first conversation with me and then watch the short film that he and I made.
As a reminder, Russ is a soldier and war correspondent in Donetsk (eastern Ukraine) and has been there since December 2014 as a soldier in the Novorussian Army, serving with the Essence Of Time combat unit in Vostok as well as with the XAH Battalions.
I asked him to give me an update on what life is like, especially considering that he and his wife live in the heart of the conflict.
It was a very real and very emotional discussion, including his house that has been damaged; his missing cat; the general mood of the people; Putin’s calculation errors; good versus evil; and what happens next.
