UK blames Russia for ‘mercenary’s’ death



British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss on Friday summoned the Russian ambassador over the death of British citizen Paul Urey in the captivity of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Truss declared that Russia “must bear the full responsibility” for Urey’s death, which Donetsk officials attributed to his chronic health conditions.

The Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) announced on Friday that Urey had passed away on Monday, nearly three months after he was detained at a checkpoint along with another British national, Dylan Healy. DPR ombudsman Darya Morozova stated that Urey suffered from “a number of chronic diseases,” including insulin-dependent diabetes, and died despite receiving medical treatment by his captors.

“Russia must bear the full responsibility for this,” Truss declared on Friday, in a statement announcing that she had summoned Russian Ambassador Andrey Kelin.

“Paul Urey was captured while undertaking humanitarian work,”Truss claimed. “He was in Ukraine to try and help the Ukrainian people in the face of the unprovoked Russian invasion. Those responsible will be held to account.”

While Truss insisted that Urey had traveled to Ukraine as an aid worker, Morozova described the Briton as a “career soldier” who had fought in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. She said that he had been leading combat operations with the Ukrainian military, as well as“training mercenaries.”

Russia has previously asked the UK to deal with the DPR directly, which the UK has refused to do. Speaking to the BBC after British fighters Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner, found guilty of being mercenaries, were sentenced to death by the DPR last month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the British government should “talk to the DPR”about the two men.

Truss has consistently refused to name the Donetsk People’s Republic, calling the region’s authorities “Russian proxies.” DPR authorities have told Aslin that nobody from the British government reached out directly to them about his case, his grandmother told the BBC last month.

DPR officials notified the UK of Urey’s capture, but “no reaction from Great Britain had been forthcoming,”Morozova said on Friday. She added that the UK failed to send medicine to Urey via the International Committee of the Red Cross, and “ignored even the mere possibility of conducting talks on his return as part of a prisoner swap.”

    Paul Urey was detained on April 25, 2022 by the Russian Armed Forces at a checkpoint in Zaporozhye together with another British citizen a 22-years-old driver Dylan Healy. According to their claims, they worked in contact with the humanitarian mission and were engaged in the evacuation of a woman and children from the territory of hostilities. That’s why they allegedly attempted to reach the areas under Russian control.

    During the arrest, photographs of explosion sites and other objects related to military operations were found in Paul Urey’s phone. All these facts indicate that Urey and Healy were collecting data for British intelligence. The detainees were accused of espionage.

    The British Foreign Ministry did not take any active actions to release its citizens, limiting to formal statements that it would try to get some information about their condition made back in April.

    Paul’s colleague Dylan Healy is a more secret figure. On his only photo shared by the media he has fake sun glasses drawn intentionally to cover his face. No exact data on his life and career is shared in the media.

    Dylan Healy and another British fighter Andrew Hill were charged with taking part in hostilities in Ukraine as mercenaries in the DPR on July 1.

    The detainees Paul Urey and Dylan Healy stated that they work in Ukraine on behalf of the British non-profit organization The Presidium Network. But the organization did not confirm any official cooperation with them. The Presidium Network stated in the media that Paul is familiar to them, but is not formally linked to the organization.

    The slight analysis of the NGO activities reveals that it is likely working in a close contact with the intelligence services.

    Is that John Mark Dugan with him? John Mark put up a note on you tube that there would be a new video coming with Aiden, and the setting looks the same.

    Very interesting to hear him singing the Russian national anthem!! What is going on?
