In the fields of Donbas

Victor Suhodolskiy, a Ukrainian businessman and the founder of “Victor Suhodolskiy’s gardening center” has now become a soldier, and is currently fighting in Donbas as a volunteer with the Ukrainian Voluntary Corps. Featured in the image, Victor is demonstrating an amusing occasion in his service – a small field of cannabis plants which he has stumbled upon while patrolling. Wild hemp is a common plant in Ukraine’s flora, and can be found widely across the country as common weed, although in Eastern and Southern regions it is sometimes grown in guerrilla style by both recreational users in small amounts and professional drug producers in more massive operations. Amused by the occasion, Victor is saluting with the traditional Ukrainian scout movement trident gesture.
