Aiden Aslin Shaun Pinner: Britons sentenced to death in trial in DPR

Aiden Aslin, 28, from Nottinghamshire, Shaun Pinner, 48, from Bedfordshire, and a third man, Moroccan national Saaudun Brahim, have been sentenced according to the Russian-owned news agency RIA Novosti is reporting.

The hearing took place in a court in the Donetsk People's Republic


  1. The UK Government has said it is “deeply concerned” about reports by Russian state media of British soldiers Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner being sentenced to death by a court in the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic.

    Mr Aslin, 28, and Mr Pinner, 48, were captured last month by Russian forces while fighting in the besieged southeastern port city of Mariupol.

    Both were fighting in the regular Ukrainian armed forces, which should entitle them to the protections of the Geneva Convention after capture.

    However, Russian separatists have claimed they are “mercenaries”, despite them residing in Ukraine and serving in its army.

  2. British national Shaun Pinner, who took part in hostilities on the side of Ukraine and sentenced to death in the Donetsk People’s Republic, has been recognized as terrorist in the United Kingdom, according to the text of the court’s verdict.

    Earlier on Thursday, the court sentenced to capital punishment two British nationals, Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin, as well as Moroccan Brahim Saadoun, for participating in the combat actions in Ukraine as mercenaries.

    "Shaun Pinner was on a wanted list in the UK for taking part in combat actions in Iraq and Syria, and was recognized as terrorist in the UK. In connection with this, Shaun Pinner went to Ukraine to take part in the hostilities," the text of the verdict reads.
