A veterans group is orgranising for a New Zealander to be with slain soldier, Kane Te Tai's body for his whole journey home to Aotearoa from Ukraine.

The former defence force soldier is believed to have been killed while clearing a trench in the Bakhmut area on Monday.

A veterans support group, called No Duff, is currently working out a plan to get Kane Te Tai to the Polish border to then be returned home to his whanau.

Aaron Wood founder of No Duff, a veterans support group, spoke to Māni Dunlop.
