Volunteers for Victory

Russian 'men-on-the-street' join fight against Ukrainian nationalists

Every day, hundreds of Russian men are volunteering for the Special Military Operation in Ukraine. Why are they willing to fight? Volunteers from Siberia and the Far East and Krasnodar explain why they decided to join Russia's armed forces, even though they weren't drafted. Can a 60-year-old man or someone with no military background volunteer? This documentary tells the stories of four men who voluntarily chose to take up arms.
