The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responding to the remark about the “hysteria” of London because of the death sentence passed in the DPR on two Britons, suggested asking the embassy about the number of British mercenaries before making statements
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova advised the UK to ask the Ukrainian embassy in the kingdom by the number of British mercenaries in Ukraine before making any statements. She stated this on the air of the Sunday Evening program. with Vladimir Solovyov.
“And they wondered how many applications the Ukrainian Embassy in London received to recruit mercenaries from the so-called British volunteers? Maybe they would ask how many subjects they registered there? No, not interested? And let them take an interest»,— suggested Zakharova in response to the journalist's remark about the “hysteria” London because of the death sentence passed in the Donetsk People's Republic on two Britons.
In early June, the DPR Supreme Court sentenced Britons Sean Pinner and Aiden Aslin to death, as well as Moroccan Saadoun Brahim. They were charged under Part 2 of Art. 34 (commission of crimes by a group of persons), art. 323 (forcible seizure of power or forcible retention of power) and Art. 430 (mercenarism) of the Criminal Code of the republic.
In the DPR, the death penalty is provided for these crimes in wartime conditions, which is de facto allowed: there is no moratorium on this type of punishment.
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss condemned the death sentence, calling those convicted prisoners of war. According to her, the DPR Supreme Court issued a “fictitious judgment that has absolutely no legitimacy.”
Zakharova, in turn, said that London's reaction to the verdict was hysterical, although the British side had not previously appealed to the DPR about its citizens, from which we can conclude that until now their fate has not “essentially interested” anyone.
