During World War II in 1944, he was recruited in the Soviet Red Army aged 15, as he could prove that he was underage (to get drafted he lied that he had been born in 1927) and served in Austria and then in the Caucasus region (cities Ordzhonikidze and Nakhichevan). In Austria, he observed the arrival of Ukrainian wheat in Baden bei Wien, which reminded him of the removal of grain from Ukraine when he almost starved in the 1930s
