The Russian Victoria Ivleva is phenomenal who is not scared to speak the truth in Putin’s Russia. This woman is a present day hero!

Victoria has been an active supporter of Ukrainian people in their struggle with Russian aggression, assisted refugees in the East, traveled around Ukraine and took tonns of photos. Some of them she showed at Cambridge Conference on Global Information War. The photo-presentation was accompanied with Plyne Kacha song.

Her voice was shaking from emotions, but the words were sharp:

I’ve had no connection to Ukraine, no Ukrainian blood, no Ukrainian family or friends, but since recently my day starts with Ukraine and it ends with Ukraine… and it’s the deepest feeling of guilt.

What I do, I’m doing for Russia. Because one day there will be a different Russia.

Maidan won not due to American money, but to human spirit. From Maidan chaos, a nation was born.
