Turkish news reports that Russell arrived in the southeastern province of Çanakkale on May 22 with the U.S. producer Keith Rodger and British Dene Jesham. They are travelling on a yacht named “Latiko” and came to Çanakkale after visiting the Greek island of Mikonos. The group visited the Anzac Cove and the New Zealand monuments and graveyards in the Gallipoli National Park before arriving in Istanbul on May 24.
