“I just don’t want to resent peace somewhere else because of what I just saw, that’s the reality. I don’t know really what to say right this second,” Maks shared with Entertainment Tonight at the airport.

Maks also went on to address the ongoing fighting in Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion, while also sharing some details about his escape.

“The reason why Ukraine is standing right now is because of the Ukrainian people,” Maks shared. “And the fact that the entire world is helping.”

“Huge shout out to Poland, huge shout out to neighboring countries,” he added. “The way I was treated through the whole process of leaving into Poland, I’ve just got to bow down to the Polish people.”

Maks also talked about the war’s global impact, saying that everyone needs to get involved to help.

“If we don’t get involved, this thing is going to go everywhere else. I think that in 2022, following this action, we have to completely rethink the way we do things as a planet,” Maks explained. “There can never again be one person who can do something like this ever again. We have to have checks and balances globally, not just one country at a time.”

We are glad to hear that Maks has returned home safely.
