Briton Paul Ury dies in captivity – Ombudsman of the self-proclaimed republic of the DPR

Briton Paul Ury died of chronic diseases in captivity in the "DPR" on July 10. This was announced by the Ombudsman of the self-proclaimed republic Daria Morozova.

During the first medical examination in the "DPR", Paul Ury was diagnosed with such chronic diseases as insulin-dependent diabetes, damage to the respiratory system, kidneys, and a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system.

“From our side, despite the severity of the alleged crime, Paul Uri was provided with appropriate medical assistance. Nevertheless, given the diagnoses and stress, he died on July 10, ”Morozova said.

At the end of April, the Russian military detained two Britons, 45-year-old Paul Ury and 22-year-old Dylan Healey, on the territory of the Zaporozhye region. They introduced themselves as volunteers of the non-governmental organization Presidium Network, which is engaged in the evacuation of people from conflict zones. Uri and Healy had to evacuate a woman with two children. They were heading towards Dniprorudny in the Zaporozhye region and were captured at a checkpoint.

“We know that my son was captured by the Russians when he was trying to help the citizens of Ukraine. He was there of his own free will,” Uri’s elderly mother told Sky News, asking for help in rescuing her son from captivity.

Paul Ury from the English city of Warrington is described as a "family man with children" who "did not complete his military service" and decided to go into humanitarian work. Previously, he had experience in Afghanistan. There he spent 8 years as a civil contractor.

On June 9, the “DPR” sentenced to death three foreign mercenaries who took part in the war with Russia on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the territory of the so-called DPR and LPR. Two British men, Aiden Eslin and Sean Pinner, and Moroccan Saadoun Brahim were sentenced to death by firing squad. In this regard, the UK sent a note of protest to Russia.
