Ukrainian soldiers knelt down as they paid their last respects to British medic Peter Fouche. Kyiv's Independence Square was the scene of the funeral ceremony on July 6. Fouche was 49 when he died on the battlefield in eastern Ukraine on June 27. The South African-born Londoner co-founded a charity providing support to Ukrainian soldiers and evacuating civilians from the war zone. He enrolled in Ukraine's military as a combat medic in January.
