Russia started its “special military operation” with 190,000 Russian soldiers. Weeks after Syrian soldiers and other volunteers joined. Many fighters have also volunteered from all parts of the world including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Germany etc. to fight for Ukraine.
Among these Russian soldiers was a 21year old, Kirill Ulyashev who lost his life weeks ago, and was buried yesterday. Young Kirill wrote a note to his family back in Russia, telling them everything was fine according to reports but never made it the next day.
