According to local media reports, Jordan Gatley had left his country’s army in the month March of this year. And now is being reported as killed by Russian armed forces during a fierce battle that erupted on Friday.
His father named Dean Gatley who hails from Cheshire mentioned in detail how his son had traveled to Ukraine after Vladimir Putin had made an announcement to enter the country and begin a war.
The news did not sit down too well with Jordan and he felt the need to step in and fight alongside the Ukrainians as he felt they needed assistance in defending their land. But little did he know that in the end, he would end up being killed in the horrifying incident.
