He goes on duty every day and meets the Ukrainian military with a self-made flag, greets the defenders who are going to the front line through his village.
A 7-year-old boy from a village in the Dnipropetrovsk region sings and collects money for the soldiers going to the front, for which they gave him the call sign "Talisman".
In uniform and with a flag on a stick, seven-year-old Artem has been keeping an eye on all traffic passing through the central street of the village since April 1. He welcomes every car of Ukrainian defenders. The soldiers who are going to the Kherson region and returning from the front line are quite emotional.
It was the Ukrainian military who gave Artemka the call sign "Talisman", and they gave him armor so that the boy would look like a real fighter. "We know what this generation is like - we will give you Ukraine and we will be proud that such children are growing up," the fighters say.
The money that parents and relatives gave the schoolboy for sweets, he collected for a drone, sight, SUVs and nets for the military.
The boy goes on duty every day and for this reason even started to study better at school so that he could be released from home as soon as possible.
