“On the day of his death, he was working with a drone reconnaissance unit,” the X post said.

“His dugout was hit and subsequently collapsed. He could only be recovered dead. Rest in peace Stefan.”

On Feb. 23, the Finnish tabloid Ilta-Sanomat reported the death of the Finnish volunteer with the call sign “Samson” near Bakhmut. The 21-year-old fighter arrived in Ukraine in December. He was fatally wounded in a drone strike.

On March 7, Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR) said that volunteers from more than 50 nations had enlisted in Ukraine’s International Legion of Defense Intelligence following the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion.

The soldiers include veterans of special operations forces and other military units from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Denmark, and other countries in Europe, as well as Asia, Africa, and South America.
