A 23-year-old Indian man, Hemil Ashvinbhai Mangukiya from Gujarat, was reportedly killed in a Ukrainian drone strike in the Donetsk region, near the border with Russia.

Mangukiya was reportedly employed by the Russian army as a “security helper” since December 2023. According to media reports, his family contacted the Indian consulate in Moscow seeking his repatriation that same month.

This incident comes amidst reports of the Russian army recruiting over 100 Indian nationals to participate in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, a fact recently acknowledged by India’s Ministry of External Affairs.
