A British citizen has died in Ukraine, the foreign ministry said Tuesday, the eighth to die in the country since Russia invaded last year.

“We are supporting the family of a British national who died in Ukraine, and are in contact with the local authorities,” the ministry said in a statement.

The identity of the individual is not yet known.

Many British citizens have travelled to Ukraine to fight or provide humanitarian assistance.

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.

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.
