I can’t stop admiring Ukrainians. It seems that there are no limits to unbelievable stories.
And every Ukrainian has his own superpower that he/she definitely gains from the land where he/she was born.
This is Ilya Samoylenko, the commander and speaker of “Azov”. He is one of the defenders of Mariupol city and Azovstal that Ruzzists try to vanish from the earth. Ilya was a student of one of the leading universities in Ukraine. He planned to be a historian. But back in 2015 when Ruzzia for the first time invaded Ukraine, Ilya decided to fight for Ukrainian independence and sovereignty. He was 21. He explains his decision referring to Ancient Greece statement “You want to be a citizen? Go to the military service”.
While taking part in military activities, Ilya lost left arm and right eye. Now he has titan mechanical prosthetic and artificial eye. Regardless such serious injuries, Ilya took weapon and went to fight to the hottest military spot at Ukrainian map. He dreams to be back to studies after the war.
I truly admire the strength of this Person! I think that such movie as Terminator is no longer relevant as fiction is replaced by reality.
Personally I would love to watch movie about defenders of Azovstal where Ilya would be one of the main heroes. I strongly believe that the heroism of Mariupol and Azovstal defenders, their true will to freedom and life should be filmed as those are true and basic human values. Iron men with big hot hearts.
I’m Ukrainian. And what is your superpower?
