A video has gone viral showing a man who is described as a volunteer describing the situation in Ukraine for volunteers, telling people that the situation there is a “trap.”
In a March 8 tweet, Ukrainian newspaper Kyiv Independent reported 20,000 foreign volunteers had joined the International Legion Of Defense Of Ukraine since March 6. That’s left some Americans wondering if they’re allowed to join Ukraine’s foreign legion.
There may be a reason to doubt volunteering is a good idea.
“For those even remotely thinking about going over to Ukraine to volunteer, watch this sh– first before you do. Please spread this around,” a poster on Twitter wrote, linked to the following viral video.

Full transcript of what he said:
For anyone who is wondering what is going on, we were part of the Georgia National Legion, a hundred-second Ukrainian territorial defense, ok? Our base got Fed up, the base next to us got Fed up. Americans, British, tons of people- British dead, alright? They are not saying nothing, they are counting our dead and they’re dead and they are trying to send us to Kyivwith no Fing weapons, no kit, no find plates. The people who are lucky enough to get weapons are only getting magazines with like ten Fing rounds, ok? When they wanted to send us to Kyiv , we said no. Our whole group, a bunch of Americans, Canadians, British.
So they told us that we had to get the F out or they would shoot us in the back, alright? So me and this British guy and another American, we Fing hid in the back of an ambulance to get out.
We got to the border and it was a whole other mess. When you get to the border anyone who has kit, anyone who has any military, they are fing pulling you out of the line and sending you back to the front. We got dropped off about 5 cliffs from the fing border and we walked- and we got to the border, and a bunch of humanitarian groups, with veterans from England, pulls us to the side and say you need to get out- they pulled us out and fing hit us, and were like- you need to dump all your kit.. and they were pulling people out, cutting up passports, sending them back, so we dumped out sh*t and we got all of our fing red crosses and they had fing humanitarian passes to get us through the Ukrainian border.
People need to stop coming here. It is a trap. and they are not letting your Fing leave. The best way to leave is like is like in a VIC or a car or something. People who get on by vehicle, have a better chance of hiding in the back, doing whatever the fu*k they can- but do not come to Ukraine if you are a volunteer.
It is a mess. And it is a trap And I have multiple people who can confirm this story for me. I am getting.
Wayne Dupree Media reported on the video and reacted, talking about the enticement on Americans to enter a Hollywood drama war.
Liberals have turned “war” and ugliness into a fantasyland.
Nobody wants to see any kind of war, but the reality is this: Ukraine is corrupt and Russia is corrupt. There is no “hero” in all of this, they’re both villains for different reasons. The swamp has used Ukraine for decades for many illicit/scumbag things. Zelensky has been a willing protector of Joe Biden and his son’s corruption.
Sorry, that's right–he's asking for Iraq but with nukes. https://t.co/AM8w8ytrMW

I’m sorry, but he’s not Superman.
It’s just not true. It’s propaganda, designed to tug at your heartstrings and get you emotionally invested. Ukraine knows they can’t win a physical war against Russia, which has one of the biggest armies in the world, so they’re trying to do it another way.
Don’t fall for it.
Good point Dupree media, they went on:
Sometimes it’s evil vs evil, or corruption vs corruption, and you just need to sit back and allow it to run its course and support the innocent victims with humanitarian aid and shelter.
This is not our fight, especially when our own borders are wide open, and our people are suffering so badly in this horrific Biden economy.
That should be our only focus, and where the BILLIONS of tax dollars should be going… to help Americans, not to fight a propaganda war thousands of miles away.
Editor of Human Events, Jack Posobiec posted earlier in week about the same man, who had corroborated reporting on the area, giving some credibility to his story about a lack of weapons for soldiers.
“2 more Americans in Ukraine describe what is going on with the Western volunteers, and corroborate earlier reporting Appears to be various elements of volunteers operating now, not only the one Ukrainian Legion”
“We were about to get sent, but we have no weapons, and the UK were not being issued gear,” the Ukraine volunteer said.

A reporter from CNN reported on the Georgian volunteer, saying that his video showed that morale is high on the frontlines of the war near Kyiv.
