The British volunteers who disappeared in early January in Donetsk region have been found, they were killed during an attempt to humanitarian evacuation from Soledar. This is stated in a statement by the family of Christopher Perry, published by Sky News.


According to them, the man arrived in Ukraine in March, "in the darkest hour of the beginning of the Russian invasion" and saved more than 400 lives and many abandoned animals.

"We never thought we would say goodbye to Chris when he had such a full life ahead of him. He was a caring son, a wonderful brother, a best friend to many and a loving partner. He loved climbing, cycling, running and skydiving and wanted to travel the world," his family said.

Andrew Bagshaw's family told reporters that volunteers were trying to save an elderly woman from Soledar when their car was hit by an artillery shell.

"Andrew was 47 years old and single. He had a brother, two sisters and seven nieces and nephews. He was a researcher in the field of genetics, but since April last year he had been working as a volunteer in Ukraine. We want his death to not be in vain. We are among the many parents who mourn the deaths of their sons and daughters. We call on the civilized countries of the world to stop this immoral war and help Ukrainians rid their homeland of the aggressor," they said in a statement.
