London Is Yet To Stop Talking And Start Acting To Safe Mercenaries From Death Penalty In DPR

Click to see full-size image

The death sentence for three foreign militants fighting along with the AFU against Russian servicemen shocked the public.  The mercenaries include three young men – Briton Shaun Pinner, Briton Aidan Aslin, and Moroccan Saadoun Brahim. According to DPR laws, the death penalty is carried out by firing squad.

The first to speak out in the United States was Anthony Blinken, the U.S. Secretary of State, who tweeted a post about Sean Pinner, Aidin Aslin, and Saadoun Brahima.  He said that U.S. authorities have expressed serious concerns about the decision of the DPR Supreme Court, which sentenced three foreign mercenaries to death. Blinken called the trial a sham, and he urged Russia and its allies to respect international humanitarian law. He claimed that the mercenaries had indeed fought in the ranks of the AFU and were in Ukraine before the special operation began. The defendants were foreigners and were allegedly studying at universities in Kyiv.

The British commentary is almost identical to the American one. In this case, the head of the British Foreign Office, Liz Truss, spoke out. London also supports the “sham” status given by the U.S. to this precedent. British Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Dominic Raab confirmed that Britain would appeal the verdict.

Liz Truss also commented on the families of the defendants, “Aslin’s mother Eng Wood learned of the barbaric sentence while watching TV news at the family home in Newark, Nottinghamshire. The family was devastated. They met with representatives of the Ukrainian embassy in London and demanded that their relatives be treated with respect. She urged the British government to bring her son home. According to a government source, such a process could make the situation worse.”

The positions of the U.S., Britain, and Western countries generally agree that the sentence is unlawful, and the DPR has no right to such a decision. They all call the mercenaries volunteers and prisoners of war.

A member of the People’s Council of the DPR Vladislav Berdichevsky clarified the situation.

“The war crimes that these mercenaries carried out do not fall under the Geneva Convention. Moreover, all the events took place on the territory of the DPR, not on the Russian territory, so Moscow has nothing to do with it. It is not very clear why the British and Americans are turning to the Russians. Therefore, since the trial took place in the DPR and they were convicted under the laws of the DPR, the sentence will be carried out by the regulatory framework of the Donetsk people’s republic. In this connection, the appeals of the United States and Britain to Russia are irrelevant. To influence the situation in any way, they must recognize the DPR and enter into official negotiations with the authorities in Donetsk on this matter.

This point of view sounds quite logical. The U.S. and Britain do not recognize the DPR, which is why they do not appeal to the Donetsk government.

The Russian position has been clear since the very beginning of the military operations in Ukraine. Foreign fighters sent to the Donbass by Kiev’s allies are treated and mercenaries and cannot be considered as prisoners of war. Despite the Kiev’s attempts to conscript them in the ranks of the AFU, they remain mercenaries.

It was once againe voiced by  presented by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. She clarified that the mercenaries are not prisoners of war, and therefore they must be prosecuted as mercenaries, who should not be treated with mercy. She called London’s reaction to the verdict agitated and hysterical and said that the British authorities did not try to take the initiative in rescuing their citizens before the trial. Zakharova also stressed that Russia had informed the British embassy in Moscow that the authorities of the DPR and LPR should be consulted about all issues concerning the British prisoners, but that London has not contacted the local authorities so far. The Russian Foreign Ministry also did not receive any appeals concerning Pinner and Aslin specifically.

Thus, the political framework prevents Britain and the US from saving their mercenaries in Ukraine, because then they would have to conduct a dialogue with the DPR, which indirectly confirms the recognition of the republic. As well as the fact that these countries are not officially at war against the DPR and LPR thus there should be no their citizens fighting on the front lines.

The usual western propagandistic lies –its a case of ” poor souls they didn’t know what they were doing ” . Mercenaries who slaughtered civilians without thought or conscious –used civilians despicably –I find it hard to feel sorrow for them.

These fuckers are called unprivileged/unlawful combatant under Geneva/Civilian Convention. They are just murderers that came to foreign country to kill without any reason apart of sadistic drives. Furthermore, the Occupying Power can under certain circumstances retain a saboteur without judgement (second paragraph of Geneva/Civilian Convention Article 5) and, in the case of prosecution, sentence him to death (second paragraph of Geneva/Civilian Convention Article 68).”

jimbojames

get real, they were wearing a uniform and thus protected by Geneva Convention. Then again, the DPR is not a signatory to same, are they? Is that the loophole they are using to avoid application of the Geneva Convention? Better yet it’s unseemly for the DPR to claim the Geneva Convention doesn’t apply, or they are the ones who get to decide if it applies. Ordinarily that’d be called common sense. Then again, it’s as if the Law really applies or it’s all just a big game to some at the expense of many.

Good grief your stupid.

I don’t feel sorry for them either. My guess though is that the death sentence was a brilliant PR move to discourage other mercenaries. Sentence them to death by firing squad but the sentence won’t be carried out. Why give the west the propaganda?

Dumpest thing would be to go trough with sentence, would have opposite effect u just mentioned.

You are absolutely right. This are actions of a fading hegemony. They have nothing left beside to try to control the narrative. Lies, false accusation and twisting of facts to fit their double standards, that is what the so called “western values” really are. Anyone can see it. Whoever does not see this is either naive or very, very stupid.

Absolutely they deserve what they get but killing a UK or US citizen by firing squad will be used by the west. The same way the Lusitania(which was armed) was used by the west in WW1. Propaganda is used like charcoal, slowly smoldering until it’s hot enough to ignite. Why would Russia allow that when they can just memory hole these guys after condemning them?

They might go full retard on that one. But what really can they do? They will just blame it on Russia anyway, especially since they start to acknowledge that Russia will defeat Ukraine and all sanctions at ease.

If you would think their sons were just killing Russian soldiers, you’re dead wrong. Mercenaries aren’t like soldiers who can willingly sacrifice themselves to kill enemies. Mercenaries are like terrorists–they’re specialized in sabotage, torture and murder and they won’t hesitate to do it to anyone they’re getting paid for. BIG DIFFERENCE.

No quarter was given by UK mercenaries who decided to go sport hunting for Russian troops and ethnic Russian citizens in Donbas for some good old fashiion UK mercenary fun and profit. Now captives of the DPR, they deserve no quarter just because Liz, Boris and Blinken think so and have also actively particpated in the killing or Russian troops and ethnic Russians Ukrainians.. Perhaps the DPR authorities might accept a very generious UK multi million dollar financial contribution in exchange for their parole instead of their richly deserved execution.
