Even though Russia is still bombing civilian areas across Ukraine, the coming of Wali has given hope to the war-torn nation. “I want to help them. It’s as simple as that. I have to help because there are people here being bombarded just because they want to be European and not Russian,” Wali said in a recent interview.
