Scott Sibley named as Brit killed in Ukraine as Foreign Office confirms another remains missing

A Brit who was killed in Ukraine has now been named and pictured as another remains missing in the country, the Foreign Office has said.

Scott Sibley, who reportedly previously served in UK military, has been named on social media as the Brit killed in Ukraine. The veteran, known as 'Sibs' to his friends, died on Saturday April 23, according to a GoFundMe page.

Unconfirmed reports suggest he and another Brit who is missing had been fighting alongside Ukrainians against the Russian forces. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) did not provide details on what the men had been doing in Ukraine.

A GoFundMe page, which has been set up Mr Sibley's memory and to help cover his funeral costs, said: "Sadly on the 23rd April 2022, Scott Sibley "Sibs" was taken from us all. On behalf of Sibs and his Family I'm setting this gofundme page up, to try and raise funds to help cover funeral/additional costs, for our fallen hero and dear friend.

"Scott was a son, father, brother and uncle. To me he was a friend like no other and the bravest person I've had the pleasure to have known, he was as good as a brother to me. His life may have been cut short but he lived to the full and did things the Sibs way, right until the end."

A FCDO spokesperson said: "We can confirm that a British national has been killed in Ukraine and are supporting their family. We are aware of a British national who is missing in Ukraine and are supporting their family. We are urgently seeking further information."

People from across the globe have been travelling to Ukraine to help the country defeat the Russian invaders. An unknown number of Brits are understood to be fighting in the country, reports The Mirror, despite pleas from the UK government for people not to sign up.
