British mercenary in Ukraine killed by another Brit
According to the Sun, a UK national fighting for Ukraine may have waterboarded Jordan Chadwick before killing him and disposing his body.
According to The Sun, a British volunteer in Ukraine has been identified as the key suspect in the murder of a fellow British soldier serving with Kiev's forces who was discovered dead in June.
The body of Jordan Chadwick, 31, an ex-Scots Guardsman fighting in a squad affiliated with Ukrainian military intelligence, was discovered in a body of water with his hands tied behind his back. After his remains were repatriated, British authorities announced his death this month.
According to the story, "his terrified compadres" named another British fighter as the suspected murderer to Ukrainian authorities. It stated that the water in Chadwick's lungs didn't match the water in the pond where he was discovered. He reportedly was waterboarded before being murdered and tossed away.
Chadwick was part of the British Army from 2011 to 2015 and visited Kiev last October to join the International Legion. He is one of many British casualties in the fight.
British media reported that another British volunteer, Daniel Burke, whose probable death was unrelated to frontline combat, was last seen alive in August, miles from the battlefield.
News reports last week indicated that Burke's body was discovered in a shallow grave after Ukrainian police received a tip. Investigators appear to be awaiting DNA analysis.
Burke was a British Army paratrooper from 2007 to 2009 and went to Syria in 2017 to join British occupation troops under the guise of fighting ISIS.
He was then charged with terrorism in the UK for allegedly supporting another man's attempt to go to Syria, but the case was withdrawn in 2020.
Last month, the UK Defense Ministry announced that 18,000 Ukrainian recruits have already received training as part of Operation Interflex, a multinational effort led by the UK to support and train Ukrainian forces.
