Meet the amateur fighters who started their own battalion to defeat Russia

The Carpathian Sich is a volunteer battalion that has been fighting in Ukraine since late February. About half the members come from other countries, and there are about 700 volunteers spread across the country. The battalion is not a part of the Ukrainian military, but most volunteers say they have at least some military experience.
