Kiev today accused Russian forces of killing two aid workers at a non-governmental organizationa Canadian man and a Spanish woman, in eastern Ukraine, calling their deaths a “painful and irreparable loss.”

According to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, the Russian military killed Emma Igual, a Spanish citizen, and Anthony Ikhnat, a Canadian citizen, who were working for the non-governmental organization Road to Relief. Emma Igwal, 32, was the director and co-founder of the NGO.

“A missile that hit the vehicle hit the vehicle in which this Spanish worker was traveling,” Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Alvarez told reporters in India earlier today, where he is attending the G20 summit.

Two German nationals working for this mco were injured in this attack, added the Ukrainian Defense Ministry in its statement.

Earlier, Road to Relief reported that two other NGO workers in the vehicle, originally from Germany and Sweden, were seriously injured and hospitalized.

The attack took place on Saturday morning in Chasiv Yar, near Bakhmut, Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, according to the mko.

“All my love and support go out to Emma Igual’s family and loved ones during these difficult times (…). Spain stands by the humanitarian aid workers who, with their dedication, put their lives at risk trying to help others,” caretaker Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez responded on X (formerly Twitter).

The Canadian government has yet to respond to the death of Anthony Ihnat.

In February, 33-year-old American rescue worker Pete Reed was killed near Bahamut when the vehicle he was in was hit by a rocket.

In May, AFP journalist Armand Solden was killed by a rocket attack in Chasiv Yar.
