A British man who has been fighting in Ukraine has been captured by Russian troops in the besieged city of Mariupol.

The Times reported that former care worker Aiden Aslin, 28, had moved to Ukraine in 2018 and said that he and the Ukrainian marines he is fighting with has run out of supplies.

Aslin said in a social media reads, “We’ve gotten word from Johnny. It’s been 48 days, we tried our best to defend Mariupol but we have no choice but to surrender to Russian forces.

“We have no food and no ammunition.

“It’s been a pleasure everyone, I hope this war ends soon.”

The statement continued, “We’re putting this out after direct consultation with his family. Until we’re told otherwise we’ll continue working on sharing the facts of the war.

“Hope for a prisoner exchange.”

Aslin who is from Nottinghamshire has now served four years with the Ukrainian armed forces was due to get married this Spring to his Ukrainian girlfriend.
