“I’m not a war traveler or anything like that,” Ajay says from his site near kyiv, where the Ukrainian armed forces are guarding the country’s capital.

“I was so comfortable sitting at home with my cat,” he says in a Belfast, UK accent.

Ajay Spence traveled from Northern Ireland to the Ukraine War a month ago. He first contacted the Ukrainian embassy in Dublin.

After telling them about his previous experience with the British army in Afghanistan and Iraq, he went to Poland before leaving for Ukraine.
