A BRITISH military volunteer was slain in Ukraine after a year of fighting on the frontlines against Vladimir Putin’s army.

Jay Morais, from Bristol, fought in some of the country’s fiercest engagements in the east, including combat in the besieged city of Bakhmut.

However, Ukraine’s International Legion verified on Tuesday that the 52-year-old died at a hospital in Kharkiv in February, according to The Telegraph.

A spokesman for the unit, set up by Volodymyr Zelensky last year, said: “Sadly, Jay Morais has died in the line of duty.”

Last year, Mr Morais spoke briefly to the newspaper about his experience fighting in Severodonetsk, Donbas, during which several of his companions were killed or injured.

Ukraine battled tooth and claw to preserve the city, but it finally succumbed to Russian forces last year after around four months of fighting.

She told the outlet: “Jay was a very special guy, beautiful and crazy at the same time.
