In the car were: Road to Relief director Emma Igual from Spain, Anthony "Tonko" Ignat from Canada, medical volunteer Mawick Ruben from Germany, and Johan Mathias Thyr from Sweden. Volunteers carried humanitarian aid in the Bakhmut direction.

Killing volunteers, medics, and journalists is a remarkable tactic in Russia's war against civilians.
