KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Soldiers from the International Legion of Ukraine said farewell Friday to an American military veteran they served with, who was killed a month ago in the fierce struggle to prevent the eastern city of Bakhmut from falling into Russian hands. In a funeral service at St. Michael’s Cathedral in Kyiv, Ukrainian regular army troops bore the coffin of Chris Campbell draped in the Ukrainian flag, while about three dozen members of the International Legion looked on. After folding the flag, they presented it to Ivanna Sanina, Campbell’s Ukrainian wife. The Florida native is one of least nine Americans now known to have been killed in fighting in Ukraine, including another last month in Bakhmut.
