US State Department spokesman Ned Price said the department was “extremely distressed and concerned” about the death of the British mercenary Paul Ury, who was held prisoner in the DPR.
Recall that the British mercenary died on July 10 due to depression and illness. This was reported by the Ombudsman of the DPR Daria Morozova.
“We are deeply concerned and saddened by the death of Paul Ury. He was a British aid worker and was captured by Russia,” Price said on social media.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the UK authorities ignored the possibility of negotiations with representatives of the DPR on the exchange of British mercenary Paul Ury .
