US President Joe Biden expressed dismay Friday at the news that an American, Willy Joseph Cancel, was killed while fighting alongside Ukrainian force, APA reports citing CNN.

"It is very sad. He left a little baby behind," Biden told reporters at the White House while he was hosting a meeting.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki earlier on Friday offered condolences to Cancel's family and said the US government had not officially confirmed his death, cautioning Americans against traveling to Ukraine for any reason.
