Briton Shaun Pinner, who was sentenced to death in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) on June 9 for fighting on the side of the Armed forces of Ukraine, gave a piece of advice to mercenary fighters. Pinner called on all foreigners lacking military experience not to come to Ukraine to do the fighting, RIA Novosti reports.
"Here you'll get ground and you will go back faster than you arrived. Plus there's a language problem and the inability to communicate with someone. Your problems,” the convict added in an interview with RT.
According to Pinner, he had to deal with artillery and Grad multiple rocket launchers in Ukraine for the first time.
"From my own experience I would say that going on combat missions, say, in Bosnia as part of UN forces, or working in Ireland, or doing things like that is completely different,” he concluded.
"Don't get into a war you don't really understand," Pinner said.
On June 9, the DPR Supreme Court sentenced Britons Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin, as well as Moroccan national Saadoun Ibrahim to death. They were found guilty of mercenaries and attempting to seize power by force in the Donetsk People's Republic.
Afterwards, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will have to decide whether to go and sign the act of surrender, the intelligence officer concluded.
