Paul Urey, a British man captured by pro-Russian forces in Ukraine, has died in detention, Moscow-backed separatists said on Friday.
"He died on July 10," Darya Morozova, a representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, said on Telegram, adding that he had diabetes.
Non-governmental organisations describe Urey as a humanitarian who worked as an aid volunteer in Ukraine, while Moscow-backed separatists insist he was a "professional" soldier.
