【The New Federal State of China Rescue】Fine Food’s Interview in Medyka with Special Forces Soldier Hanxin Zheng from Taiwan, Who Is Preparing to Enter Ukraine as an International Soldier

Fine Food

Hello everyone, I am Fine Food coming to you again from Medyka in the Polish frontline. I’m here to cover one of the events here,  sitting next to me, you can see this handsome man, He’s in such good shape, he looks like an extraordinary person, may I ask you name first?

Zheng:

Hello, everyone. My name is Hanxin Zheng, and I’m from Taiwan.

Fine Food

From Taiwan, Hanxin! Are you affiliated to the military?  The name of Hanxin?

Zheng:

Yes, I changed my name when I was in the military,  I hope I can be like the ancient general Han Xin. I wanted to lead my troops and win battles.

Fine Food

So, you’re a soldier? So why did you come here this time?

Fine Food

I was a soldier in Taiwan for five years, then I was a special forces soldier, then I was a paratrooper, airborner. Then I retired from the army, and after I retired, I am now an engineer in wind power generation.

King: Why do you want to come here?

Fine Food

Because there is a war. I wanted to join their International Legion and do something for them. To do something for Ukraine.

Fine Food

How long did it take you to make this decision? To go in and help them?

Zheng:

I made the decision very suddenly. If I remember correctly, I went to apply for a passport on March 14, because it was my first time to go abroad, my first time to get a passport. And then I got it on March 21st, and then I got my passport a week later and I flew the next day. I flew over here on the 22nd or 23rd,  Yes, it was a very important decision. I just wanted to help Ukraine, then I quit my job right away, then I came over here.

Fine Food

I’d like to say that your decision was very quick, kind of sudden, what was it in your heart that made you think you had to go?

Zheng:

When there was a war, we saw a lot of…… We see a lot of brutal images, some buildings, or people killed or injured, but Taiwan is a very peaceful place, there’s no war, no threat. Basically, except for China’s threat,  Basically, it’s a very safe and it’s a very peaceful place. And it’s hard to imagine in parallel time and space, something so bad has happened, and I was in such a peaceful place, I couldn’t sit still, I wish I could do something for them. To do something for this place, that’s about it.

Fine Food

Okay, so… Now it might be something I believe, is it some technical problems?

Zheng:

We’ll have to wait for the official announcement, won’t we? Yes, that’s why I’m staying here. Mainly because I’m stuck. That is, I don’t have a visa for Ukraine. It’s a visa for Ukraine. Maybe there’s a problem with the instructions from their embassy, that’s why I’m stuck. There is no way to enter the territory of Ukraine

to report to their International Legion.

Fine Food

So once that official paperwork is done and so on, you’ll be on your way, right?

Zheng:

Yes. Yes, I myself would like to use some of my own military capabilities to help Ukraine in this way. And if I get a response today, I’m going to decide to go in or not to go in,  or if there is no answer, maybe I’ll fly to Warsaw in two days. To their embassy to make another confirmation.

Fine Food

Very brave very brave well. So, in this camp, you’ve been [here] for like two days or so, right? Can you share with us what you saw in this situation? How do you feel about what you’ve seen? What were some of the more impressive things you saw? Give us an example, okay?

Zheng:

The list of examples is endless! For example, this Take Down CCP banner.I think it’s a place that impresses me a lot. If it only had the Chinese flag on it, I probably wouldn’t want to come in. Because my opinion of China may not be good,

but since it’s Take Down CCP, Wow, I was interested. So when I came here and saw this banner. I said, “I have to come in!” I don’t care if it’s just to get to know the people inside a little bit, so, I remember after I came from there. I went to this tent first. Then I probably asked first, “How do I get to their border?” The people there were also very helpful to me, that’s why this was the first tent I entered when I came to this camp. And it was also a very impressive place.

Fine Food

They were all our volunteers, the ones wearing the vests, right? Well, in addition to our volunteers, I was impressed by our volunteers and our ideas and concepts. For example, in the refugee area or I see that you are very diligent. Right away if there’s any help needed, you went to move stuff right away. What experience do you have from this?

Zheng:

Actually, I came here because I just wanted to do something for Ukraine. Then I just wanted to help out wherever I could. If I were to say that I was impressed, it would be two nights ago. I happened to be on that road, I was wandering on the road leading to the border, I found a guy from Ukraine, he was carrying his luggage to enter Ukraine. And he couldn’t carry his luggage, so he put it on the ground, he was probably resting. So, I went up to him and asked if he needed help? He said if you can. Then I went to help him.

Fine Food

So, if you can help, then yes please help me.

Zheng:

Yes, yes, yes, I helped him with his luggage.  And then halfway there, we talked, I told him that I was from Taiwan, then he said he was from Ukraine. When he said his nationality was Ukrainian, I was actually quite surprised, it’s because nowadays, Ukrainian people, boys and men, once they get in, they may not be able to come out smoothly. That means he has decided, he may want to do something for his country. That’s why he went in, and his luggage is also packed with that plastic bag. You knew it at first glance, he probably got off the plane and came here right away, it’s probably arrived here already at night.

Fine Food

One more thing, as you may know by now. If you are a young man in Ukraine, you are not allowed to leave the country. That means this guy must have lived abroad for a long time. What did he come back for?

Zheng:

He said he wanted to do something for his country. He told me in such a casual way, but it must be for the war. And you think how a guy who can’t even carry his luggage, he may not have any military skills either. But for the sake of his country, he’s willing to go back and help. He may not know what he can do, but just to go back to offer his own ability. This kept me thinking, I think there are really no words to describe this. Right.

Fine Food

This one is very moving and shocking to you.

Zheng:

It’s a big shock. Right.

Fine Food

I think if I were there, I would feel the same way, in front of you, right?

Zheng:

He couldn’t even carry his luggage. And he was a very skinny guy. He looks like he’s only about fifty some kilograms, he’s probably about the same size as a girl. He was determined to go back for his country. Yes, I feel really touched. And also, very shocking.

Fine Food

Yes, yes, yes. When it comes to this war, what is the opinion of the general public in Taiwan about this war? Can you share your understanding?

Zheng:

Most Taiwanese want peace, they all hope that there will be no war. In fact, we can share the feelings of Ukraine. Because we are also facing the same problem, China, yes. And Ukraine is facing Russia, then we are facing China. We all face the same problem. Probably being suppressed by the big powers, most people will want to help, but the way to help may be different. Maybe it’s some material help, Financial aid. I have many brothers that are ex-soldiers, they would like to come too. But they may have been hindered by their families, or they are still in the service, they can’t just leave like me, I say I can come and go when I want to. In fact, Taiwan wants to help the Ukrainians. That is, to do what they can.

Fine Food

I noticed that the Taiwanese government is also very quick. It joined the ranks of the sanctions against Russia, right? So, this also shows how Taiwan society views, this is an unjust war of aggression, isn’t it? Well, finally. One question, because you know that the goal of the New Federal State of China is to overthrow the Communist Party. We believe that the Chinese Communist Party is the root cause of evil in the world. So you may actually think that the name China, frankly speaking, has been kidnapped by the Chinese Communist Party for a long time. Not just you, there are many volunteers here. The first thing they think is whether we are a team by the Chinese Communist Party. This is also normal, but well, after you see it here, you feel that we the Chinese from different regions. What is your impression with that?

Zheng:

I admire your courage. Because in fact in your country, In fact, it is not allowed to do this kind of thing. And you have big ambitions. Because to overthrow a Communist Party, it’s not just something you do overnight. But I think this kind of power will gradually accumulate. Maybe in 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, 100 years,  and when this power grows bigger and bigger, I believe that one day you can achieve the goal you want. The people here are actually different from the Chinese people I know. You also have a heart to help people, you came here to do volunteer work, you will do what you can to help Ukraine. Yes, I admire you and I think you’re doing a great job. You’re doing a fantastic job.

Fine Food

Thank you. We do our best. We’ll try to do what we can. Thank you very much, Hanxin, for giving us this interview. Thank you so much. It’s really touching, isn’t it? Didn’t think twice about going to the frontline, ready for everything. Thank you very much.

Zheng:

Thank you! Many thanks!

I think this tagline is great. It will make people want to come and chat with you first. Because everyone has a very bad impression of Communist China, but they are very strong and hard to defeat. But your slogan says, we have to defeat this thing. I think this attracted my attention a lot. So, the first thing I did when I came here, I came to see you first, at least for a chat. I thought it would be a great experience for me. A great experience for me, I’m very happy to see you guys, that’s right, so I know that, not all Chinese people agree with the Communist Party. There are even some people who want to do more, even overthrow them, to become a democratic republic. I think this is a…… I support you. I would even like to join one of your organizations.

Fine Food

That’s a good point. Thank you.

Zheng:

I mean to join your Chinese Americans team ah. It’s true. What is Take Down? Take Down is a technical knockout in a fight music video. I really hope you guys can beat it one day.

Fine Food

Definitely.

Zheng:

Then Taiwan will be the first to be safe. Then we can communicate with you guys a little bit more often. I think this is great. Because obviously we both speak Chinese, but why does it have to become such a slightly hostile relationship? I really don’t understand.

Fine Food

That’s right.

Zheng:

And we’re so close to each other, we should be the best of friends, but we can’t because of the Communist Party.

Fine Food

That’s right.

Zheng:

It’s just that there’s no way to say hey, we can exchange everything.

Fine Food

Right.

Zheng:

It becomes very troublesome. We are in your territory, and we can’t say that we are a country. We can’t say other stuff either, there are a lot of restrictions. For our artists to go to your side, they have to suck up to some people and say flattering things. You can’t even speak from your heart. I think this is really a big problem. It’s not because of the artists, it’s all because of the Communist Party.

Fine Food

The root of all evil is the Communist Party.

Zheng:

That’s right. I think that’s right.

Fine Food

You see, we are thousands of miles away from here. We come together here, when you meet us, you will know what the real Chinese people are.

Zheng:

Really.

Steve:

Not the Communist Party, it’s not the Chinese people like the brainwashed people. What you see, what you meet, these are the real Chinese people.

Zheng:

It’s just that I think, the road is still long, there is still a long way to go.To hold on.

Steve:

To hold on. What’s right is just the beginning. Right. Yeah, it’s great.

Zheng:

There is still a big, big…… How to put it, still have to work on it right. That’s right. What we are doing now may not be enough. We need more spread your ideas to more people. Let more Chinese people abroad know about it. Because it may not be possible to send this text in [China], Right?

Steve:

You must tell them what you see. (Zheng: Yes.) What you hear from the real Chinese people,  you must pass it on to your Taiwanese.

Zheng:

You pass it on to me, I will definitely pass it on to them to see.

Steve:

You must pass it on to them. Let your friends in Taiwan know.

Zheng:

I know.

Steve:

Not those Chinese people the Communists say they are. Right? We are the real flesh and blood. It’s not what you see in the newspapers or on the screen.

Zheng:

China is not even taking a stand on the war. It can do things, but it doesn’t want to do things, most of them even think they are biased towards the evil Russian side. Why, why don’t you do something when you have the power?

Fine Food

Yes.

Zheng:

Then you, happen to be the opposite of the government, your government. Willing to do things for them [Ukraine], right? To come to the front line and do things personally. Then I heard them say, you went to transport people out.

Fine Food

That’s right.

Zheng:

That’s why you need to hire bodyguards.

Fine Food

Right.

Zheng:

You see, you pay for your own things. And then, great concept. I support you guys, yeah really. I’d join you guys if I could, that’s fine too.

Fine Food

Thank you, definitely. That’s great.

Zheng:

Help you guys. I can’t take it down by myself, you can’t do anything about it,  but when the three of us get 30, 50, 100, 10,000 or even 1 million people, even more,  I believe there is a chance.

Fine Food

Great, great!

Zheng:

That’s from the heart.

Fine Food

Great.

Zheng:

Just this this road is really still a long way. It’s still a long way to go.

Fine Food

Yes.

Steve:

But we see hope right here.

Zheng:

Yeah, I see hope, too. It’s really the fire that’s coming out. How to make it burn brighter and brighter,  we have to work hard.

Steve:

Great, Hanxin, you’re great! Everyone is very interested. You are in this national army. You are, I do know, the audience does not know. You are a paratrooper special force.

Zheng:

Exactly.

Steve:

 So you were going to come in, just to join their international corps?

Zheng:

Yes.

Steve:

To fight for Ukraine

Zheng:

Because that’s the part of my profession that I specialize in. That’s what I can do more of, then do what I can do. Yeah.

Steve:

Salute, salute, salute!
