First US Fighters Captured By Russian Soldiers In Ukraine

Two former U.S. service members are believed to have been captured by Russian forces while fighting in Ukraine, according to reports.

Alexander Drueke, 39, and Andy Huynh, 27, were taken prisoner outside of Kharkiv in northeast Ukraine last week while fighting as volunteers alongside a regular Ukrainian army unit, The Telegraph reported Wednesday, according to those recently in contact with the two men.

The State Department said it has received unconfirmed reports of two U.S. citizens captured in Ukraine, though officials declined to comment further, citing privacy considerations.

“We are closely monitoring the situation and are in contact with Ukrainian authorities,” a State Department spokesperson said in a statement.

The development is likely to further increase tensions between the U.S. and Russia, which have declined precipitously amid the Kremlin’s assault on Ukraine.

Messrs. Drueke and Huynh are believed to be the first Americans captured since Russia invaded Ukraine in February.
