Vikings are back they are fighting for Ukraine

Danish soldier Carl”Storm” Baldersson is one of the men of the Foreign Legion of Ukraine, who is fighting against the Russian army. The guy calls himself a real Viking and has already participated in difficult battles for the liberation of Ukraine.

Vikings fighting for Ukraine

AS per the report by the Ukrainian Veterans Fund, the Vikings have an education related to shipping. In the minutes free from fighting or evacuation, they train physical fitness and endurance.

“Today we are all from Ukraine,” the Dane wrote in front of a car with military equipment. During his stay in Ukraine, the foreigner even managed to get a tattoo of a trident.

“The Viking was among those fighters who evacuated people and helped liberate the cities captured by the Russian army in the Kyiv region. Somehow a Russian missile hit the position where Storm was, but everything worked out. The Dane jokes about such dangerous cases that today Valhalla is for it is postponed,” the Ukrainian Veterans Fund said in a statement.

Baldersson said he realized the point of being in the war in Ukraine when he saved a little boy from Russian shelling. The Dane admitted that at the time he could barely hold back his tears. Storm said he has travelled thousands of miles to a country he does not know: “I am fighting in Ukraine out of love for the people. I am not a hero in this terrible war. For me, every hero fights voluntarily.”

When and Where did the Vikings come from?

The Vikings originated in present-day Denmark, Norway and Sweden (although a century before they became a single country). Their homeland was mostly rural, almost without cities. The vast majority made a meager living by farming or fishing along the coast.

The Vikings were very active near Kyiv more than 1,000 years ago. The modern “Ragnar Lodbrok” is fighting in the same region as his ancestors. A study shows that the Vikings immigrated to North America exactly 1,000 years ago. The key to discovery is the details preserved in the tree. Researchers have evidence that Scandinavian Vikings built buildings about 1,000 years ago.

Evidence of Scandinavian immigration to North America is confirmed only in one place — L’Anse aux Meadows, on the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Discovered in the 1960s, this solution dates back to about 1000, proving that carbon dating is ineffective in finding an exact date.
