Russian Ambassador Andrei Kelin said that the UK “entered into contact” with Russia on the topic of Britons sentenced to death in the DPR, but London sent an “arrogant note”:
I can say that there was an appeal of the British to us, they sent a note, but a note composed in extremely arrogant, instructive expressions. It does not make us want to cooperate in these matters.
Two British citizens and one Moroccan who fought on the side of Ukraine as part of the Foreign Legion were captured. Last week, the court of the unrecognized republic of the DPR sentenced former servicemen to death.
