This guy came to Eastern Ukraine to protect Donbass and to fight against the Maidan regime:
I must say that I sort of admire him. His name is Ivo Stejskal and he is a teacher of physical education and civic education in Brno, Moravia, Czechia. He must be sort of inspiring for his (basic school, Novolíšeňská Street) students. The Czech media inform that he's a polite, likable person who gets the best ratings from his friends and colleagues.
In his broken but decently understandable (surely for me!) Russian, he told the demonstrators that he considers himself a Slav and came there to fight much like some Serbian (but also Italian!) warriors. (Stejskal is fighting in "Batallion Vostok", along with some people from the Caucasus.) He doesn't like the "genocide of the Russo-Ukrainian nation", events that happened in Odessa and other things he saw on TV, and so on. He simply had to go to the Southeast. He was partly walking, partly hitch-hiking.
In his mail to his numerous friends (who consider him a hero), he has described the phosphorus bombs deployed by Kiev which make iron and concrete burn; the shocking excess of the Kiev troops that fight against the pro-Russian forces and assault hospitals, and so on. The Czech media often join the breathtakingly dishonest anti-Russian propaganda that is popular in so many countries of the West. Thankfully, at least in this case, they resisted the temptation to fabricate character assassination of this honorable man who has no dirt on his record.
Needless to say, his decision to help carries risks. He may be killed over there and even if he survives everything nicely, he may expect up to 5 years in prison after he returns to the Czech Republic where it is illegal to serve in foreign armies (and probably in an informal military, too).
