Connor says he only told one person in his entourage that he was going to fight in Ukraine. In Ukraine, only one person knew his evocative last name: “I didn’t want to be treated any other way.”
His girlfriend, 23-year-old Brazilian singer Julia B, wrote in Connor’s Instagram post that she was “so proud” of him, while it was tough “all those months gone by and we were worried.”
Connor is the grandson of former US Attorney Robert F. Kennedy, who was shot dead in 1968, as well as his brother, US President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
