Captured British soldier speaks to his mother: I will be executed soon, the British government will do nothing


2022-06-23: [Article Link A British citizen, Aiden Asrin, captured by the Donetsk militia, recently called his relatives and said that he was running out of time because the British Government had not negotiated with the Donetsk side. The British Daily Telegraph reported on 22 June that 28-year-old Aiden Asrin and 48-year-old Sean Piner had been captured in April in Mali Upor and sentenced to death by local courts. According to the report, Eden Asrin's grandmother stated that “Eden Asrin was very upset when he spoke to his mother this morning and said that his time was running out because the British had not attempted any negotiations with the Donetsk Government. It must be everyone's worst nightmare when your family is threatened in this way." As Aiden Asrin's grandmother said, “I must believe what Aiden Asrin said to us, and if Donetsk does not respond, he will be executed, apparently I hope it is not true”. The Supreme Court of Donetsk has previously ruled that British citizens Aiden Asrin and Sean Piner, as well as Moroccan citizen Ibrahim Sardenberg, were sentenced to death. According to the law “The People's Republic of Donetsk”, those sentenced to death will be executed. The Donetsk Court held that the three were foreign mercenaries and were not covered by the Convention. The Russian Ministry of Defence had previously stated that mercenaries in Uganda were not combatants under international humanitarian law and were therefore not entitled to prisoner-of-war status and were subject to criminal prosecution.
