Paul Urey, a British man captured by pro-Russian forces in Ukraine, has died in detention, Moscow-backed separatists say. 

“He died on July 10,” Darya Morozova, a representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, says on Telegram, adding that he had diabetes.

Non-governmental organizations describe Urey as a humanitarian who worked as an aid volunteer in Ukraine, while Moscow-backed separatists insist he was a “professional” soldier.
