The Wider Image: The Ukrainian fighters standing in Russia's way on eastern front
Carpathian Sich battalion member Denis Polishchuk, 28, who uses the nom de guerre 'Canada', poses at the group's forward operating base at the frontline in Kharkiv region, Ukraine, July 1, 2022. Polishchuk said he hoped to ensure he had a worthy answer if asked by the children he still hopes to father what he had done during the war to help. "I felt that the only dignified response would be that, yes, I was doing my part. I was fighting alongside with everyone else," said Polishchuk, who was born in Ukraine but spent many years in Vancouver. REUTERS/Marko Djurica SEARCH "DJURICA UKRAINE BATTALION" FOR THIS STORY.
