London urged Russia to show mercy to British mercenaries in Mariupol


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on the Russian authorities to treat with mercy the British mercenaries who were captured by Russian troops during the fighting in Mariupol.


We urge to treat the prisoners with mercy

- Johnson said on April 20 during an address to the deputies of the House of Commons.

First of all, we are talking about Sean Pinner and Aiden Eslin, who went to Ukraine as volunteers. At the same time, the British Prime Minister stressed that these people are not mercenaries and are fighting in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Pinner and Eslin have served in the Ukrainian Marine Corps since 2018.

At the same time, Johnson mentioned that London opposes the participation of British citizens in hostilities in Ukraine. He also supported a ban on the publication of any excerpts from the interviews of captured British to Russian television companies. The Prime Minister did not specify whether it is possible to exchange British citizens.

Earlier, Pinner and Eslin asked Johnson to assist in the exchange of them for the head of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk, who was previously detained by Ukrainian security forces. In addition, Medvedchuk's wife Oksana Marchenko turned to the relatives of the captured British to ask for such an exchange for Boris Johnson.

    London did not say whether the British mercenaries treated the local population and the Russians with mercy?

    That's rubbish what this boriska. With mercy? And how many Russian old people and children did they "send" to the next world for 4 years? And now to these Anglocreatures still show mercy? Maybe rub the Boriska with his muzzle against the wall first?

    But does Boriska understand that he has got himself into trouble? And does this bastard understand that all the cards are now in the hands of Putin? And the post of Boriska and the career itself and even life. As for me, it is indicative to execute. They fired at our soldiers. This is enough to shoot.

    I hope that we will use the opportunity given to us by Boris to the full extent. Let's show how we will treat the enemy in a future war. As an edification to him and a warning to all others

    Since these people are outside the law, they must be officially exterminated. And London should be the first to know about it. No Polites!!! Or someone wants to calculate how many lives of Russian soldiers on his calluses from the trigger?

    What a hypocrisy! Did he also supply weapons to Ukraine solely out of mercy? How many people died because of the Anglo-Saxons, because entire nations were exterminated by ghouls!

    Mercenaries are not prisoners of war, they are criminals, bandits, and are subject to trial in the DPR. Can you imagine how they are hated in Donbass? And then there is the death penalty! But that would be too soft. Better lifelong work to restore the destroyed Donbass. Without vacations and days off. For a piece of bread. Naturally, under vigilant escort.

    Mercy? It's possible.
    You, Borya, which time of day do you prefer: Ukrainian, Anglo-Saxon, or would you like to give mercy in Russian?
    Or alaverdy to the maximum?

    Mercy?! Easily!
    What kind of mercy do you prefer: a rope, a bullet in the stomach, or pouring concrete?

    London supplied hundreds of tons of deadly weapons for the Slavs to kill each other,
    and then yelled about nobility.

    I read somewhere that in English justice there was such a wording -

    You will be hung by the neck and hang until you die. And may the Lord have mercy on your soul.

    Yes, we are the most merciful of all: we didn’t drive the Nazis into the catacombs, we don’t storm them, we don’t take away food and drink, and we don’t touch them at all. We will close up all the entrances and exits there so that they do not have drafts there. How much more merciful.
