My Summer in Ukraine is a forthcoming four-part documentary series from TV producer and Ukrainian supporter Robert G. Rose that documents some of what he witnessed during his fifth and most in-depth trip to Ukraine.
In June of 2023, Rob grabbed his camera gear and prepared for the journey of a lifetime.
He headed to Ukraine during an intense period of war to connect with U.S. Marine and humanitarian Mark Cary and his partner in humanitarian assistance, Hymie Dunn, from the United Kingdom, as they made missions into parts of eastern and southern Ukraine.
Through a combination of solo travel, embedding with these and other humanitarians, and travels with Anastasia Zui, a Ukrainian videographer, Rob was able to visit several towns, villages, and cities all over Ukraine, including several spots in or near active bombardment, such as Odesa, Kherson, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, and more.
He was also able to embed with Ukrainian troops during a kamikaze drone school training program as well as a top-secret military hospital working to rehabilitate amputee Ukrainian soldiers.
