Two Britons have been denied pardon, after being sentenced to death in a Russian-backed court

The leader of the Russian-backed Donetsk region has denied calls for immunity after two Britons Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner and Moroccan Brahim Saadoun were captured while fighting for Ukraine.

The court hearing was held in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, which is one of Russia’s proxies in eastern Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Britain has slammed the court’s decision though as a “sham judgment”.

“I utterly condemn the sentencing of Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner held by Russian proxies in eastern Ukraine. They are prisoners of war. This is a sham judgment with absolutely no legitimacy.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesperson says the prisoners of war are entitled to immunity.
