Closer to Victory


"I serve in the Orthodox Dmitry Donskoy Battalion now, as a soldier. I used to walk around here in a cassock, and now I'm in camo. When you're in military fatigues, at least the hems don't get dirty," says Ivan, a priest from the Moscow region. Despite being a clergyman, Ivan has taken up arms out of sheer determination to protect Donbass civilians. Like many others who volunteered to defend Donbass, Ivan believes every effort made brings victory closer. Watch the documentary to discover unique individuals who decided to join the ranks on the Donbass frontlines. From musicians to engineers, regular people became soldiers, putting their lives on the line to ensure a peaceful future for their region.
