My story begins in 1989 before the Soviet Unions fall. My father Alexei Oblayegov, he was a steelworker in a factory at Chernogorsk, he was a smart man, he knew the Union is collapsing. He found a way to escape to America where the dreams come true. After he became a US citizen he changed his name to Arnold Monreu. He got married to an American lady who works in an elementary school as a teacher. Finally, I was born in 93. They gave me my granddad's name, Richard. We weren't rich but life was good for us. I grew up as an American. After finishing University in 2015 I became a War-Zone journalist. My company sent me to Chernarus to make a documentary about the Civil War happened in 2009. I was thrilled cause I always wanted to see Chernarus but my family never let me go. Finally, the day becomes, 3rd of July, I was on my way to JFK even though my father told me not to go. Who knows everything is gonna be like this. First, we flew to Istanbul and from there with the connecting flight to Novigrad. My hotel was in Chernogorsk, It 2 stories small red building on the left and right there were couple more houses with different colors, classic Soviet architect. After we finished our filming we heard that CDF is barricading the roads around old storage base north of Severograd as a journalist we thought this will be good news so me, my cameraman Dave and our local translator Nadya start driving there but we couldn't pass the checkpoints so we set up our equipment to film. After a couple of hours, we forced to leave the area so we had back to Chernogorsk. We couldn't exactly understand the TV but it was news about old storage base something about bombs. July 11, rumors coming from the north but there is no news certain yet. We heard that people are coming down to Cherno to seek shelter, the next day there are tons of people waiting in front of the checkpoint to enter the city, there was huge anarchy going on. We tried to interview with a couple of them at least to know what's going on. Suddenly people start screaming and running towards us. Soldiers are following those people but their uniforms are torn down their bodies burnt, how they can still run... ''Cameraman start running to the checkpoint... The camera falls down... '' Now Richard is a survivalist, The only goal he has to survive. He is a war journalist and extreme sports enthusiast. He loves camping in nature. Now he is using his expertise to survive in this shit hole. He knows how to use a weapon, how to hunt but he never taken a life until now. He is friendly guy who is seeking for a shelter and good friends.
