“A British man who travelled to Ukraine to join the military fight against Russia’s invasion says he left the warzone amid fears he was facing a “suicide mission”.
Ben Spann told Sky News he did not tell his wife or 16-year-old son that he was going to Ukraine to take up arms, despite the fact he has never served in the military and has no ties to the war-torn country.
The 36-year-old, from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, said he spent five days in a safe house in western Ukraine with four ex-British soldiers – and at one point had a gun pointed at his head after the property was searched by a “Ukrainian SWAT team”. …
Mr Spann said he thought the prospect of travelling to a more dangerous part of Ukraine without weapons “was a bit of a suicide mission”.
“As these guys made the decision to venture further into the country, I made the decision to go back to the border,” he added.
‘My wife was pretty p***** off’
Mr Spann said he travelled back to the Polish border, where hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees have fled to. …”
