British Embassy in Russia urged to treat British detainees in Donbass humanely
The British Embassy in Russia called for humane treatment of the British detained in Donbass, as they are prisoners of war and have the right to be treated in accordance with the requirements of international standards. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
“We are aware of the detention of British citizens and are in close contact with their families,” the embassy said.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that London should take measures to prevent British citizens from taking part in hostilities in Ukraine. She indicated that Russia would stop any armed activity against the Russian army and destroy the “volunteer” groups. The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also recommended that foreign states whose mercenaries were detained in Donbass contact the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics (LPR, DPR) directly.
Sean Pinner surrendered at Mariupol along with another Briton, Aiden Aslin. They had combat experience in Syria, although they were not part of the British Army. They asked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help them exchange them for Viktor Medvedchuk, who was detained in Ukraine.
