Here’s another round of interviews for you here on the Aussie English podcast!

Do you remember Justin Hammond of episode AE 475? Yep, this mate’s a language learner like me and has been doing travels around Russia and Ukraine.

In today’s episode, we talk about his experiences living in Ukraine and Russia and the cultural relationship between the two countries. 

How he left Ukraine just before the Russian invasion and escaped to Georgia. He then shared his thoughts on the ramp up to the invasion. 

We also talked about how the war will change Ukraine and Ukrainian identity for the worse in the short term, but the better in the long term. 

He also shares, being there in Ukraine, what Ukrainian people thought of Zelensky before and then after the invasion. Plus, the discrimination against Russians who are against the war and have fled the country, the power of Putin’s propaganda in Russia in controlling the population and what they know and believe. 

And lastly, his expectations of how this invasion will end and the fallout from it.
