New Zealand’s military has received reports of a soldier killed

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) said it has received reports that a soldier on leave has been killed in Ukraine.

In a statement Wednesday, NZDF said the “soldier was on a period of leave without pay at the time and was not on active duty with the NZDF.”

“At this early stage, there is still more information to be gathered in order to understand the circumstances fully,” the statement said. “The New Zealand Army will work closely with the family of the soldier to offer support at this deeply sad time.”
