Ukraine war: Released Briton felt ‘a moral obligation to help’

Five Britons were captured in Ukraine by Russian-backed forces and have been released to their families.

Simon Ostrovsky, a Russian-born American journalist, has been explaining to the BBC why Aiden Aslin (one of five Britons released) decided to fight for Ukrainian forces. After being captured in Mariupol, Aslin (28 years old) was sentenced to death.

According to Aslin, a man he met in Ukraine in 2019 and who felt there was something to be done about Russian aggression, he believes the West should strengthen its support for Ukraine.
