VIDEO: Two British aid workers, Paul Urey and Dylan Healy, captured by Russian forces in Ukraine


The two were reportedly captured at a checkpoint south of Zaporizhzhia. There are fears that Moscow will “present them as British spies.”

The non-profit Presidium Network said the two men, both civilians, were working independently on a project in Ukraine to provide food, medical supplies and evacuation support.

Dominik Byrne, co-founder of the Presidium Network, said the men disappeared on Monday (April 25th) after entering Russian-controlled territory, where they intended to help evacuate a woman.

Three hours after she was due to arrive at her home, the woman said she was questioned by Russian soldiers about two men they had taken, Byrne said.

One of the men suffers from type 1 diabetes and needs insulin daily to manage his condition, Byrne said.

There was no immediate comment from the British Foreign Office, but British Trade Minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan told Sky News: “The Foreign Ministry is doing its best to support and identify these two people.”
