Two former U.S. soldiers went missing last week while fighting Russian troops on behalf of the Ukrainian army. Family members cannot communicate with them. The two men were spotted in a video broadcast on Russia’s state TV channel RT on Friday, local time. It is claimed that the two were captured by Russian forces. News AFP.
Many foreign nationals have voluntarily joined the war with Ukrainian troops since the start of the Russian operation in Ukraine last February. Alexander Druk and Andy Huyn went to Ukraine from the United States. They are both former U.S. soldiers.
U.S. citizens Alexander Druk and Andy Huynh went missing last week while fighting in Ukraine. U.S. President Joe Biden said yesterday that he had no information about the whereabouts of U.S. military officials Alexander Druk and Andy Huynh.
Last evening, Russian journalist Roman Kosarev posted a video of Druk in the Telegram. In the video, Druk is heard saying, “Mom, I just want to let you know I’m alive. I will return home as soon as possible. Think of me and love Diesel, I love you. ‘Druk’s pet dog is known as Diesel.
The video shows Druk sitting in an office, wearing a military uniform.
An interview with Huen has also been aired on RT’s Telegram channel. In the interview, he said the two were fighting Russian troops in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine. However, at one stage of the war they retreated and hid for a few hours. They later surrendered to Russian forces.
A U.S. State Department spokesman said Saturday that U.S. authorities had viewed the video and the photos. “We are closely monitoring the situation,” he told AFP. I feel sorry for their family at this difficult time.
In an interview with CNN on Thursday, Druk’s mother, Lois, said that her son had gone to Ukraine a month ago to talk to her.
“I want to let everyone know that we don’t want them to leave each other and come home. They are very good friends. We want to remind everyone that this is not just a matter of one person. ”
Huynh’s fianc Joy Black said in the same interview that he last spoke to Huynh on June 6.
With tears in his eyes, Joy Blake added, “He said he loves me very much. He will not be available on the phone for two or three days. He was trying not to worry me. I just want to see if he is safe. ”
During a news conference at the White House yesterday, Biden urged US citizens not to travel to Ukraine. “US citizens should not go to Ukraine now,” he said. I repeat: US citizens should not go to Ukraine.
