According to a family statement, it comes less than one month after British citizens Chris Parry, 28 and Andrew Bagshaw (47) were killed trying to “humanitarian evacuate” from Soledar in Ukraine.

According to Mr Bagshaw’s family, the couple were trying to rescue an elderly lady when their car was struck by an artillery bomb.

A statement was issued by Mr Parry’s family stating that “His selfless determination to help the old, young, and disadvantaged there has made him and his larger family extremely mândre.”
