Dramatic footage shows son of Tory MP fighting in Ukraine under heavy Russian fire

Dramatic video footage shows the son of a Tory MP fighting for Ukraine. It includes an attack on a Russian troop carrier as well as the rescue of a wounded comrade.

Ben Grant shouts, “We have to get moving now or we’re going to die!” As shots ring around them, Grant and his band foreign fighters assist in dragging one of their fellow prisoners to safety.

The Daily Telegraph first reported the clip. It shows Dean Arthur, a former Grenadier Guardsman, and his unit under constant firing as they treat Dean Arthur’s injured leg with a tourniquet in horrifying scenes on the ground in Ukraine.

Mr Grant, the son of Conservative MP Helen Grant is a former Royal Marine, who arrived in Ukraine in the early days of war.

They are believed to have been part the Ukrainian counter-offensive that drove the Kremlin forces troops from Kharkiv , and in some places all the way back to Russia’s border.

Unknown numbers of British citizens, both civilians and military, are believed to have traveled to Ukraine to help the country’s armed forces.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss stated previously that she supports individuals traveling to Ukraine to “fight for democracy”, but later, the Foreign Office advised against any travel to the country.

The Telegraph was told by Mr Grant that his 15-strong unit, which included two Ukrainian translators and British volunteers, had been preparing to attack a Russian-held target.

He stated that he believed we were spotted by drones before and they had set up lines… so when we entered the mass firefight broke out right where you can see in the video.

“We were walking in single file when the contact occurred, Deano was at my end of my team, and he went to kneel… We were shooting, getting down our heads, and shooting them. Although I was scared, I was determined to accomplish my most important goal which was to get him and my team out the danger.

“What was so frightening was trying to carry someone when I couldn’t pull my gun up and there were attack helicopters overhead. There are tanks firing through the woods. It was unbelievable. I have never seen anything like it in my entire life.

Mr Arthur was taken by doctors to a hospital in Kyiv where he received a leg splint.

Image Footage showed the troop carrier smoking while it fled the scene

Another clip shows Mr Grant saying “go, Go” while he and his foreign volunteers sneak out of a patch in the woods to shock the Russian armor.

Helmet-cam footage shows the moment one his comrades launches a rocket at an armoured personnel carrier, believed to be the BTR-80 armoured personnel carriers.

The two quickly retreat and one says “it’s facing toward us” and “fall back,” as shots are heard all around.

Separate footage, apparently captured by a drone, appears to show the troop carrier being struck by the rocket and then fleeing from the scene, lighting up as it goes.

The secondary explosions are seen on the armoured car – it could be ammunition exploding due to the rocket strike.
