Ottawa Confirms Death Of Canadian Citizen In Ukraine

July 25, 2022

Canada has confirmed that one of its citizens died recently in Ukraine.

The confirmation came after a media report said the Canadian died while fighting alongside two U.S. citizens who also died while fighting in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine.

"Global Affairs Canada is aware of the death of a Canadian in Ukraine. Consular officials are in contact with the family and are providing consular assistance," a Canadian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on July 24.

The spokesperson said further details would not be shared due to privacy considerations.

The deaths of the two U.S. citizens were confirmed on July 23 by the U.S. State Department, which declined to provide details.
