Two British aid workers reportedly captured by Russian forces in Ukraine named


Two British aid workers who have reportedly been captured by Russian forces in Ukraine have been named.

UK non-profit organisation Presidium Network said Paul Urey and Dylan Healey were captured on Monday.

They are understood to have been captured at a checkpoint south of the city of Zaporizhzhia in south-eastern Ukraine.

Mr Urey has been described as a “family man with children” who “didn’t make the army” so decided to work in the humanitarian sector and travels lots.

Mr Urey’s family said in a statement: “My family and I extremely worried. We know Paul and his friend who are humanitarian aid volunteers in Ukraine has been captured by the Russians.

“He was out there on his own accord. We want everyone’s support to bring him home and pray he is safe.”

Meanwhile, Mr Healey was a previously a kitchen manager at a hotel chain in the UK.

Presidium Network said the pair were working as volunteers and were known by the organisation but not linked to them.
