According to him, the testimony of British citizens Sean Pinner and Andrew Hill, as well as a citizen of the Kingdom of Morocco, Saadoun Brahim, admitted their guilt.
‘The criminal case against the mercenaries who took part in the preparation and conduct of hostilities against the Donetsk People’s Republic has been fully formed. The materials of the case have been transferred to one of the republican courts for consideration on the merits, as a result of which the defendants, taking into account wartime, can be applied capital punishment – the death penalty,’ Gavrilov said.
The British Sean Pinner and Aiden Aslin surrendered in Ukraine in mid-April. Major General Igor Konashenkov, the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry , said that, in accordance with international humanitarian law, mercenaries cannot qualify for combatant status, so ‘the best thing that awaits them is a long prison term.’
