A Jewish Ukrainian soldier has been killed fighting Russian forces, says a spokesman for top Ukrainian rabbi Moshe Azman.

Vladislav Shain, 21, was active in the Jewish community in Dnipro, according to Azman.

“Vladislav gave his life defending his nation,” says Azman. “ He fought bravely since the beginning of the invasion.”

Azman says the whole Jewish community is praying for the wounded soldiers and for an end to the fighting, and calls on the world to intervene to bring about a ceasefire.
