The family of the British military said that on June 10 they learned that their son had been shot dead in Severodonetsk.
Jordan and his team took such pride in their work and he often told me that the missions they were undertaking were dangerous but necessary. He loved his job and we are so proud of him. He really was a hero and will forever remain in our hearts,” said the father of the deceased soldier.
The second British soldier who died in Ukraine
- Many foreign soldiers from different countries came to Ukraine to defend our territory from invaders from Russia. Jordan Gartley became the second British soldier to die in Ukraine.
- At the end of April, British soldier Scott Sibley died in Ukraine. He was a veteran of the British Armed Forces and was the first British citizen officially killed during the war.
- Another British citizen, whose name is not known, has gone missing. Sibley probably served with the missing Briton. According to the British media, both were in Mariupol or elsewhere in the Donbas.
