A fifth-grader in the middle of the night came to the local defense to sign up for volunteers

“An 11-year-old boy came to us at night. 5th grade student. To the military… Came to help the army…
He came to fight! Protect relatives, land, city! Here he is a hero!” Volunteer Alexei Kovtun shared the story on his Instagram.

The military asked the excited mother not to scold the boy and promised to visit the young hero after the victory.
