A 29-year-old man with Waipā links is helping clean up war-torn Ukraine.

Danya Nasuta-Hill’s parents Leanne and Stu Hill live in Cambridge and appealed to The News a fortnight ago on behalf of their son to find out whether there were any other Waikato people in the Ukraine.

Danya is in Bucha, near Kyiv, the scene of horrific war crimes where Russian soldiers allegedly massacred civilians.

He told Cambridge journalist Lisette Reymer, he walked into the war zone by choice after leaving his building job in Hamilton.

“I’m here to help,” the former Morrinsville resident said.

His grandfather moved to New Zealand from the Ukraine in 1949.
