A UK national fighting for Kiev may have waterboarded Jordan Chadwick, The Sun has claimed
A British volunteer in Ukraine has been named the primary suspect in the murder of a fellow Brit fighting alongside Kiev’s forces who was found dead in June, The Sun claimed on Sunday.
The purported breakthrough was made in the case of Jordan Chadwick, 31, an ex-member of the Scots Guards, who was serving in a unit attached to Ukrainian military intelligence. His corpse was reportedly found in a body of water with his hands tied behind his back. The British government confirmed his death this month after his remains were repatriated.
“His terrified compadres” identified another British fighter as the likely killer to Ukrainian investigators, the report said. It claimed that the water in Chadwick’s lungs did not match that of the pond in which he was found. He was allegedly waterboarded before being killed and dumped.
Chadwick, who served in the British Army from 2011 to 2015, traveled to Ukraine last October to join Kiev’s International Legion. He is one of dozens of Brits killed in the conflict.
Another British volunteer whose suspected death was not associated with frontline action is Daniel Burke, 36, who was last seen alive in August miles away from the battlefield, according to British media.
A body discovered after a tip by Ukrainian police in a shallow grave may be Burke’s, press reports claimed last week. Investigators are apparently awaiting DNA analysis to confirm the identification.
Burke served as a paratrooper in the British Army from 2007 to 2009. In 2017, he went to Syria to join Kurdish militias as they fought against the terrorist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).
He later faced terrorism charges in the UK for allegedly facilitating another man’s attempt to go to Syria amid a Turkish campaign against the Kurds, but the case was dropped in 2020.

The information provided by this news source is being included by the Libertarian Hub not as an endorsement of the Russian government, but rather because it is being actively censored by Big Tech, Western governments and the corporate press. During times of conflict it is imperative that we have access to both sides of the story so we can form our own opinions, even if both sides are spewing their own propaganda. The censorship of RT, despite likely being a propaganda outfit for the Russian government, reduces our ability to hear one side of the conflict.
