Drone Strike in Ukraine: Two French Volunteers Killed

In startling news from our sources in the Kherson region of Ukraine, two French humanitarian aid volunteers fell victim to a fatal drone strike executed by Russian forces. The assault occurred in the Beryslav township, once deserted by the Russian military in the latter part of 2022. This devastating event led to injuries in three other expatriates and a resident of Ukraine.

Civilians Under Fire

According to Kherson Governor Oleksandr Prokudin, the strike was focused on civilian entities, igniting a wave of indignation worldwide. France’s Foreign Minister, Stephane Sejourne has verified the occurrence, expressing his profound regret and applauding the deceased volunteers’ relentless efforts to support the Ukrainians. He underscored that Russia would face the consequences of its activities, criticizing the incident as an exhibition of ‘Russian savagery’.

Global Response and Repudiation

French President Emmanuel Macron mirrored Sejourne’s expressions, denouncing the assault as a ‘pusillanimous and reprehensible act’. He reassured all volunteers risking their lives for the benefit of others, both in Ukraine and beyond. This event has intensified the appeals for the global community to devise more resolute actions to counter Russia’s belligerent military strategies in Ukraine.

An Area in Turmoil

The Kherson region, in particular, the Beryslav township situated on the west side of the Dnipro River, has been a central target of Russian military antagonism. Contrary to the fact that Russian forces withdrew from this zone in 2022, recurrent bombardments have proceeded, resulting in considerable damage to civilians and foreign aid personnel. Subsequent to the lethal drone strike, the Ukrainian national police have initiated an inquiry into the incident.

Findings from the Investigation

  • Identified as French humanitarian aid workers.
  • Strike was targeted at civilian entities.
