Foreign mercenaries sentenced to death in the DPR


Sean Pinner, Andrew Hill, Saadoun Brahim are the names of the first people sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of the DPR. These three foreigners participated in the battle for Mariupol on the side of the Ukrainian armed formations. Pinner and Hill are British citizens, Brahim is a Moroccan citizen. All three were found guilty of committing especially serious crimes against the Donetsk People's Republic and its citizens: forcible seizure of power (Article 323 of the Criminal Code of the DPR), mercenarism (Article 400) and committing crimes by a group of persons (Part 2 of Article 34).


The investigation against them was conducted for several weeks and ended at the end of May. In the course of investigative actions, the involvement of the convicts in the crimes they were charged with was established. All three were taken prisoner during the mass surrender of Ukrainian militants hiding on the territory of the Mariupol Azovstal plant. Pinner and Hill, as well as their relatives, repeatedly turned to the British authorities with a request for help and an exchange for the Ukrainian oligarch Medvedchuk, but no one contacted the leadership of the DPR on these issues.


However, international law removes mercenaries from the category of combatants, and Medvedchuk is not a citizen of the DPR or the Russian Federation. All this means that there could be no talk of any exchange from the very beginning.

After the verdict was announced, the mercenaries' defense announced their intention to appeal the verdict, Pinner, Hill and Brahim will be held in custody until a final decision is made. The fate of another well-known mercenary, Aiden Aslin, who is also in custody in one of the correctional institutions of the DPR, remains unclear. It is possible that he will also share the fate of his comrades.

    Foreign mercenaries sentenced to death in the DPR

    - This will somewhat cool the rage and ardor of many "foreign heroes" who are eager to go to Ukraine - "to play war games" and take part in an "exciting safari" !!!

    So they will not be killed forever, but for three hundred years and mothballed. Let them build ovens, put a jar of ashes.

    personally, it seems to me that this whole show with the court of these three is designed for some kind of reaction from the "partners". The burden of appeal will still continue, and then the pardon process will take place ... And all this time the authorities of the Russian Federation will be waiting for something, probably in the hope of changing something or someone ...
    In vain they are. for foreigners, it is necessary to introduce into the Criminal Code of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions a long time ago, if they took part in hostilities, the justification for bringing an unambiguous punishment in the form of deprivation of life by hanging, in public. Without any appeals and pardons

      Actually, in the LDNR, volunteers from other countries also fought on the side of the militias. Upon returning home, many of them were convicted and received heavy sentences. They would be exchanged for these. The most offensive is that in Belarus several people are sitting under the same articles .Luka-multi-vector completely beguiled the Ramses. I could have freed

        our authorities easily handed over to Ukraine those who fought for the Donbass. What are you talking about...

    show with court

    That's exactly what the show is. Didn't the speed of the trial bother anyone? At least for the sake of appearance, it was possible to hold meetings for a couple of weeks with the maximum possible coverage in the media.

    And why this judicial farce is arranged, it is clear that the sentence is not subject to execution - the West will attribute the success to its diplomacy, and in the Russian Federation they will once again be convinced not of the rule of law, but of the strength of “vertebral” law. In the end, everything will turn out not as we wanted, but as always.

    I don’t know what will happen to these mercenaries in the end, but that sniper who has a callus on his finger from the trigger must definitely end

      As practice shows, in matters of "finishing or not finishing" someone, people who have nothing to do with either the army or professional military service behave most aggressively. This is exactly your case. Any professional military will tell you that getting a "corn on your finger from a trigger" is impossible in principle. As well as attaching the horn to the machine.
      And as for the sentence, we can say that with a high degree of probability it will not be carried out and, most likely, will be replaced either with a life sentence or 25 years in a colony (the latter, oddly enough, is better - for the needs of restoring the Donbass, a work uniform, which they will sew is more important than their corpses).

        How much pathos laughing Listen, "professional military", what should a normal person feel when he sees when Russian prisoners are shot through the knees, and then the carotid artery is cut? His hand and corn, just like a tattoo, were shown on TV for more than one day, in addition to this, he regularly covered his "exploits" in his social networks, and also gave interviews to the British media and was their "star" and hero. I don’t feel any aggression towards this scumbag, rather righteous anger, and I just want him to remember this trip for a long time, if not forever

          Unlike you, dear, the most direct.
          Z.Y. Is the sofa tight for you?
          Let me explain for those who don't understand:
          1. The trigger is a USM part hidden in the receiver. And what the shkolota calls the trigger is the trigger
          2. The weapon does not have a horn. There is a shop. And only you personally can have a horn, if someone tries.
          3. Excessive aggression outside of combat has always been characteristic of people who are infinitely far from the army.
          It is by such small signs that a shkolota, like you, is calculated. And your actual age in this case does not matter.

            Well done, you distinguish the hook from the store, you can see the great military master - "pro" from afar lol . When your wife and children come to be slaughtered, will you also think about how not to do something "super aggressive?" This is despite the fact that the corps of the LDNR are not professional military, but they are fighting so that they themselves and their loved ones are free and can decide for themselves how to live and what language to speak. This despite the fact that they lost many from mercenaries like this brit.
            You may not be a youngster, but you have a clear problem with your brains

    I think I will voice the opinion of the majority of the inhabitants of the Russian Federation: IMPLEMENT THE SENTENCE PUBLICLY, WITH THE INVOLVEMENT AND COVERAGE OF THE MEDIA (both world and domestic media of the Russian Federation)

    Aiden Aslin is just convicted, on the video he is the first to the video camera, round-faced. Hill's fate is unknown.
