Veteran MMA fighter Jeff Monson, who took up Russian citizenship last year, has visited war-torn eastern Ukraine to deliver a series of master-classes and make trips to local schools and orphanages.

Monson arrived in Lugansk, the capital of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, on Monday.

He visited a local martial arts school where he gave a master-class to children in kickboxing, taekwondo, Muay Thai and aikido.

The US-born mixed martial artist said that the aim of his visit was to try to break the global information blockade of Donbass.

“I came here not only to see everything with my own eyes, but to tell the world about everything that happens here. So that the people here won’t feel forgotten and ignored,” he said.
