On Mar 6, Korean YouTuber Ken Rhee announced on social media that he was on the way to Ukraine to serve as a volunteer soldier. A day after his post, he updated his Instagram with news that he had arrived in Ukraine, and called out the Korean government for trying to invalidate his passport.

He wrote, “Ministry of Foreign Affairs, my team and I safely arrived in Ukraine. Please think about what we can do [to help] instead of wasting time and invalidating our passports. We are going to fight in the frontlines.”

In subsequent posts, Ken added, “I’m thankful [to Ukraine] for their help during the Korean war. This time, we’ll help you (…) We can’t just watch while innocent people get hurt and killed. Please pray for peace in Ukraine.”
