WASHINGTON — Marine veteran Trevor Reed, who was wrongfully detained in Russia for three years before he was released as part of a prisoner exchange last year, was injured while fighting in Ukraine, the State Department confirmed Tuesday.

“We are aware that Trevor Reed was injured while participating in fighting in Ukraine,” deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel said at a news conference. “Mr. Reed has been transported to Germany, and he is receiving medical care.”

Patel did not say how Reed was injured or give his condition. Reed was transferred to Germany by a nongovernmental organization, which Patel did not name.

Reed is being treated at a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, a defense official said.
