A 49-year-old man from Fulham, who was credited with saving the lives of over 200 Ukrainian soldiers, has been killed on the frontline.

Peter Fouche had previously worked as a taxi driver before deciding to help Ukraine almost immediately after Putin’s army launched its full scale invasion of the country in March 2022.

He co-founded Project Konstantin, which supplied soldiers with essential items such as vehicles, drones and food. After the cofounder of the charity, Tetyana Millard, died Peter also trained to work as a combat medic serving with the Armed Forces of Ukraine in areas constantly under live fire.

The charity confirmed that he had been killed on Sunday 30 June.

In a statement it said, “There are no words that can do Pete’s life justice. No words or phrases that could ever encapsulate how much he meant to all of us.

“Pete's unwavering dedication, endless compassion, and relentless commitment to Ukraine and her people have left an everlasting impact on the countless lives he touched.

“His heroism knew no bounds. He was actively involved in saving more than 200 wounded Ukrainian soldiers, evacuating civilians from the most dangerous frontline cities, as well as bringing humanitarian aid to people in those towns and cities.

“Pete’s bravery and selflessness in the face of danger were nothing short of extraordinary, and his actions will forever be etched in our hearts.

“Pete was more than a leader; he was a beacon of hope, a true hero, and a friend to all.

“His wisdom, compassion, and faith in God inspired us every day.”

Originally from South Africa, he had worked as firearms specialist with an elite unit of that country’s police force, before coming to the UK and working for Addison Lee.
