British Charity Founder Dies Fighting Against Putin’s Forces

A British charity founder providing military and humanitarian support in Ukraine has died from injuries sustained while fighting, the organization announced.

Peter Fouché died on Thursday “on the battlefield” after being critically injured “in combat against Russian forces,” Halyna Zhuk, commercial director and co-founder of Project Konstantin, said in a video message.

His charity organization had a team of independent volunteers supplying essential items like drones and food to Ukrainian soldiers. It also evacuated soldiers and civilians and delivered humanitarian aid to conflict zones near the front line.
