A Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office spokesperson said: “We are supporting the family of a British national who died in Ukraine, and are in contact with the local authorities.”

The bodies of another two Britons killed while trying to help people evacuate from fierce fighting in Ukraine were recovered last month in a prisoner swap.

Ukraine exchanged 63 jailed Russians captured during Vladimir Putin’s invasion as part of the swap.

Chris Parry, 28, and Andrew Bagshaw, 47, were undertaking voluntary work in Soledar, in the Donetsk region of Ukraine, when their vehicle was reportedly hit by a shell.

Their deaths in the Ukraine war come after that of Special Forces Support Group and Afghan War veteran Simon Lingard.

Known to pals as Grimmy, was killed in action when his trench was hit by a Russian shell.

In April, Brit dad Scott Silbey was named as the first UK casualty in Ukraine.

The British Army veteran, 36, was praised by former comrades as “the bravest person” they knew.

In June, British ex-soldier Jordan Gatley was killed in the city of Severodonetsk.

Jordan, who left the British Army in March, has been hailed as “truly a hero” after he was killed.

Volunteer medic Craig Stanley Mackintosh was killed while out on patrol near Ukraine’s second-biggest city Kharkiv.

The 48-year-old landscape gardener and dad-of-four served in the Territorial Army for seven years.

Aid worker Paul Urey, who was captured by Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine died in detention last July.

Urey, 45, was captured by pro-Russian forces in the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine in April.

The Foreign Office advises against all travel to Ukraine, amid the ongoing invasion, saying there is a “real risk to life”.
