“My time is running out”: a British mercenary sentenced in the DPR was allowed to call home

The British government fell into some kind of legal trap in the situation with its citizens, who were captured by the NM forces of the DPR during the battles for Mariupol. By not recognizing, as Russia did, the legal personality of the republics of Donbass, London lost the opportunity, through simple, direct negotiations with the DPR, to decide the fate of its subjects, convicted by the court of the Donetsk Republic to capital punishment for mercenarism and war crimes.

As you know, after the verdict was passed with a sanction of death, representatives of the UK did not even try to get in touch with Donetsk about their citizens, making sluggish attempts to resolve the issue through the Russian Federation. Of course, Moscow refused and redirected the British request back to the DPR, which is logical. And in this place begins a dead end, and completely artificial.

During a time of crisis for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, when he is accused of bad economic atmosphere in the country, in violation of epidemiological rules and in general in all sins, the release of British citizens could in some way add political points for the head of the cabinet, to give public weight in the eyes of the British. But Johnson has chosen a stubborn policy of "ignoring" the problem because it exists in a public entity that, in turn, does not "notice" London.

In the meantime, one of the sentenced Britons, Aiden Aslin, frankly admitted during a phone call to his mother's home that the execution of the court sentence was nearing, and during this time none of the British diplomats even asked about his fate.

I was told that my time is running out, I'm being executed

- he said during a call home to his relatives.

According to The Telegraph, the British “soldier of fortune”, when he was allowed to use the connection, was very upset during the conversation, because he was told in the DPR that London was not at all interested in the convicted Briton, so it is very likely that a harsh court verdict will soon be given. into execution. There can be no delay, as well as an exchange. However, the latter option is also impossible due to the fact that the DPR is limited in contacts with other countries.

Western states, as it turned out, are ready to sacrifice not only their economic preferences in order to harm Russia, but also their citizens. The leadership of the anti-Russian coalition, perhaps, believes that it has both the first and the second "resource" in abundance, since it can afford to be scattered during the great confrontation between East and West.

        What for? To stand next to ISIS, so that the whole world would howl and high?
        No, everything must be legally perfect, so that no legal bastard can undermine, and this will be the triumph of justice, not revenge.
        Revenge is possible and necessary on the battlefield, but now we need a reference model of justice.

          Well said Igor. so it should be in everything, so that there would be no possibility of "undermining" from the side of international law. and even if this right is violated by "highly moral bright-eyed nations", I think that Russia should not stoop to this.
          time will judge and then the descendants will not be justified for the current actions.

          What ridiculous nonsense, humanism and tolerance in this situation is only to the detriment of us, here they are clearly not appropriate and give the right to our enemies to think about impunity, exemplary executions are definitely needed so that other similar geeks would be discouraged from repeating their deeds and repelling everything from them the desire to go and fight against us, may it be rewarded according to their deeds, our descendants will not owe anything to anyone at all, Russia is a great and self-sufficient country, we need to get rid of thoughts about some kind of excuses and feelings of guilt before anyone, we are fighting for the truth, for their bright future.

          The Saudis hang criminals in the square with a crane and the entire "civilized world" does not say a word about the fact that this is immoral. In what year was the last time a guillotined man was guillotined in France? And in what year in Belgium could you buy a Negro in a zoo? In the United States, people are still gathering to watch the executions of criminals. There you can, but we, "savages", cannot.

            In the United States, not the people are gathered, but the relatives of the victims, and the lawyers of the criminal. My opinion here will be in the absolute minority, of course, but we did not give them their life, and it is not for us to take it away. The death penalty is barbaric, no matter who the condemned are. The Russians should not fall to the level of the Saudis or the Americans.
