Since the summer of 2014, thousands of young Russians poured into the Donbass Region of Eastern Ukraine. Driven by propaganda on Russian television, they believed they were fulfilling their patriotic duty. Amongst the first wave of volunteers was Oleg and Max. Oleg was appointed battalion commander, while Max became a soldier. But their illusions were shattered on the night of June 3rd 2015, when a battle went horribly wrong. Oleg ended up leading many of his men to their death.
