The deceased soldier's parents noted that he wanted to help the Ukrainian people fight and liberate their country. It is known that in 2014 he served in Afghanistan.

"Andrew had a strong sense of what was right and wrong. He felt the need to use his prior military combat skills to help the Ukrainian people fight and liberate their country. Andrew was extremely close to his fellow soldiers and was well-liked by everyone. We are all extremely proud of his bravery and selfless sacrifice," Andrew Peters' parents told WSAW-TV.

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, thousands of foreigners have come to the defense of Ukraine. The International Legion was officially formed, which included citizens from over 50 countries.
