DONECK – An American citizen fighting for Ukraine’s regime has been killed by soldiers of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
This was announced by the region’s ombudsman, Darya Morozova, Russian agencies report. The young man, Alan Joshua, was killed in a fight on August 23, Morozova writes on Telegram.
Donetsk authorities notified U.S. officials and the head of the United Nations Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, Matilda Bogner, of his death. “In a fight near Yegorovka on August 23, DPRK People’s Militia officers killed another foreign mercenary fighting for Ukraine. Fleeing Ukrainian militants left his body on the battlefield. Documents were found on him identifying him as the U.S. citizen, Alan Joshua, born in Memphis in 1998,” the ombudsman specified, adding that the authorities are ready to hand over the body to the family. Morozova then advised all foreigners arriving in Ukraine for military purposes to leave the country as soon as possible, “otherwise no one will guarantee their safety.”
