A British fighter Aiden Aslin who is fighting with Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol has said his unit has no choice but to surrender to the Russians. Former caretaker Aiden Aslin, 28, who moved to Ukraine in 2018 after falling in love with a woman from Mykolayiv, said the troops had run out of supplies as the Russians approached.
Aslin has been in the Ukrainian Army since 2018.
He became a Marine and is part of the unit that protects Mariupol, a port city on the Black Sea.
However, a few weeks after the siege of the city, it was reported that Mr. Aslin’s unit had run out of food and ammunition.
A Twitter account representing Mr. Aslin said he heard “Johnny,” Mr. Aslin’s call sign.
A statement he shared, apparently from Mr Aslin, said: “It has been 48 days since we tried to defend Mariupol, but we have no choice but to surrender to Russian troops. We have no food or ammunition. Everyone was pleased. I hope this war will end soon. “
The spokesman said they shared the message after consulting with Mr Aslin’s family. “I hope to exchange prisoners,” it said.
He told a friend: “It’s been 48 days. We tried to defend Mariupol, but we have no choice but to surrender to Russian troops.
“We have no food or ammunition. Everyone was pleased, I hope this war will end soon. “
A source who spoke to him added: “He said he loved you all. He is strong in spirit and showed no weakness at all.
“It seems to the Russians that it is a little better than giving up to the Chechens.
In a video message, a friend said that he intended to ask for your prayers and share the message in order to attract as much media attention as possible, in order to somehow hold Russians accountable for his behaviour, which he said should be fair, dignified and honourable. which he deserves.
He is a good man, a good son, a good grandson, a good uncle, a good cousin, a good man, a good man, “said a friend.” He went to Ukraine to help people as he loved them; for the same reason he went to Syria to protect the people, so he went to Mariupol and fought to the last. An honourable man. he deserves his message to be heard, he deserves attention, he deserves us to tell his story.”
