A British Army veteran is preparing to travel to Ukraine to help the country during the ongoing invasion by Russia.
Shane, who has spoken to Forces News, will initially take medical supplies but said he is ready and willing to fight alongside Ukrainians.
The 34-year-old former soldier of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, a trained sniper with experiences of operational deployments, said he was not willing to watch the conflict from the comfort of his sofa.

On Tuesday, Boris Johnson clarified that Britain is not actively supporting UK volunteers going to join the fight against Russia in Ukraine.
The Prime Minister was responding to a question from an Estonian journalist during which she suggested the Government had supported the idea of British civilians travelling to fight in Ukraine.
He said: "I'm going to be very clear about this because you're not quite right in what you say about supporting volunteers going to fight. The UK is not actively doing such a thing."
