Another American soldier of fortune destroyed by the Russian army in the Donbass. According to CNN, US Army veteran Andrew Peters died on February 16 of this year. Peters is known to have served in Afghanistan in 2014. In November 2022, he joined the International Defense Legion of Ukraine.
Information about the death of an American mercenary was confirmed by American officials.
We can confirm the deaths of American citizens in Ukraine. We remain in contact with their families and provide all possible consular assistance.
– said the representative of the US State Department.
Note that Andrew Peters is far from being the first American soldier of fortune who was destroyed by the Russian army during a special military operation in Ukraine. According to various sources, the Russian army eliminated at least several hundred American mercenaries.
At the same time, according to the calculations of military journalists, Polish citizens are the most represented in the ranks of the Foreign Legion in Ukraine. According to reliable data, Russian troops destroyed several thousand Polish mercenaries during the conflict in Ukraine.
At the same time, it is expected that in the near future the flow of soldiers of fortune from different countries will only increase.
We add that the Russian army is not particularly scrupulous in dealing with mercenaries. In most cases, the Russian soldiers prefer not to take them prisoner, but to destroy them on the spot.
