A third American reports missing after traveling to Ukraine


Washington — The United States is aware of reports that a third U.S. citizen is missing after traveling to Ukraine on Thursday, and two people reportedly were captured after going to the country to fight Russian troops. He said he had not yet asked Russia about Americans.

“As of today, we have not yet raised this in the Russian Federation … (we) see nothing from the Russians indicating that two such individuals are in custody. “Hmm,” US State Department spokesman Edward Price told reporters, two unidentified men.

According to the family, Alexander Druke, 39, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Andy Huin, 27, from Hartselle, Alabama, went to Ukraine as volunteer fighters against Russian troops and went missing for a week. I’m afraid I’ll be caught.

The U.S. military said the two men had served in the U.S. military in the past-Huynh of the Marine Corps and Drueke of the Army Reserve-but did not provide information about their current whereabouts.

The U.S. military repeatedly denied that the U.S. military would be deployed in Ukraine and told veterans that there was a better way to help Ukraine than responding to Kieu’s call for combat in Ukraine.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 and said it was engaged in a “special military operation” to disarm and “blame” its neighbors. Ukraine and its allies say Moscow has launched a provocative war of aggression, killing thousands of civilians.

Family members and US officials said there were no reports of the two being captured by Russia as prisoners of the war. Earlier, the White House said they were “working very hard to learn more.”

“There is a report of another American whose whereabouts are unknown … Our understanding was that this individual traveled to Ukraine to pick up a weapon,” Price added.
