Texan Crowdfunding His Mercenary Exploits Against The Ukrainian Government

Texan, communist and pro-Russian Russell Bentley has been crowdfunding his military excursions against the Ukraine government since November 2014.

Bentley raised $2,000 on GoFundMe and has been assisting the Russia backed separatists in their war effort, first by repelling the Ukrainian army at the Donetsk airport and currently (as reported) as an “information warrior producing regular pro-separatist propaganda videos on the Ukrainian war.”

The BBC reports that “Nearly 10,000 people have died since the conflict erupted in April 2014, and recently a rebel leader declared a state called “Malorossiya” (Little Russia) in Donetsk.”
