The foreign mercenaries in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), if their appeal is not satisfied by the court, will be sentenced to death by firing, said the head of the Republic, Denis Pushilin.
"All foreigners filed an appeal, we are waiting for the court hearing. If the court finds the appropriate measure of punishment, then the cases will be transferred to the executive service for the implementation of the sentence. It will be death penalty through shooting," Pushilin said.
In Donetsk, on June 9, three foreigners captured in Mariupol were sentenced to death - two British citizens Sean Pinner and Aiden Aslin, as well as a Moroccan citizen Saadoun Brahim. All three pleaded guilty to Ukraine's armed aggression aimed at seizing power in the DPR.
The United States does not recognize the entry of Ukrainian territories into Russia. Such a development will seriously complicate prospects for a diplomatic settlement
