烏克蘭戰爭。被烏克蘭叛軍關押的英國人將接受審判

三名被指控為僱傭軍的英國男子將在烏克蘭東部的俄羅斯代理法庭接受審判。

俄羅斯國家媒體說,約翰-哈丁、迪倫-希利和安德魯-希爾將在所謂的頓涅茨克人民共和國受審,這是烏克蘭的一個分離地區。

這個不被國際承認的法庭最近判處了兩名英國人的死刑。

原本來自桑德蘭的前軍人哈丁先生,自2018年搬到烏克蘭以來,一直與烏克蘭軍隊並肩作戰。7月,他出現在一段視頻中,呼籲首相鮑里斯-約翰遜給予幫助。

希利先生在4月在烏克蘭作為援助人員進行志願服務時,在一個檢查站被抓獲,與保羅-烏雷一起在7月被俄羅斯支持的分離主義分子關押時死亡。

俄羅斯塔斯社報道,這三名英國人拒絕與調查人員合作並作證。

他們與另外兩名來自瑞典和克羅地亞的男子一起受審。

同一法庭在6月判處肖恩-平納和艾登-阿斯林死刑。這些在為烏克蘭作戰時被俘的英國人被指控為僱傭兵。

他們的家人堅持認為他們是烏克蘭軍隊的長期成員,而不是僱傭兵。

歐洲人權法院也要求不執行這一判決。

在克里米亞被吞併後,東部地區的分離主義分子於2014年成立了親俄羅斯的小國。

此前,作為最新一波制裁的一部分,俄羅斯禁止了BBC新聞播報員胡-愛德華茲以及其他一些記者。

愛德華茲在推特上說他 "被克里姆林宮選中",並在名單上他的名字旁邊加上威爾士和烏克蘭國旗的表情符號。

莫斯科外交部發布了一份39名新受制裁人員的名單,他們現在被禁止進入該國,以回應英國對俄羅斯入侵烏克蘭的制裁。

此前,英國上個月決定製裁俄羅斯部長和與總統弗拉基米爾-普京有關的有影響力的家族成員。


Three British men accused of being mercenaries are to stand trial in a Russian proxy court in eastern Ukraine.

John Harding, Dylan Healy, and Andrew Hill will be tried in the so-called Donetsk People's Republic, a breakaway region of Ukraine, Russian state media says.

The same court, which is not internationally recognised, sentenced two British men to death recently.

Ex-serviceman Mr Harding, originally from Sunderland, had been fighting alongside Ukrainian forces since moving to the country in 2018. In July he appeared in a video appealing to Prime Minister Boris Johnson for help.

Mr Healy had been volunteering in Ukraine as an aid worker when he was captured at a checkpoint in April, alongside Paul Urey who died in July while being held by Russian-backed separatists.

Russia's Tass news agency reports that the three British men have refused to co-operate with investigators and testify.

They are being tried alongside two other men from Sweden and Croatia.

The same court in June sentenced Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin to death. The Britons captured while fighting for Ukraine were accused of being mercenaries.

Their families insisted they were long-serving members of the Ukrainian military and not mercenaries.

The European Court of Human Rights has also demanded the sentence is not carried out.

Separatists in the eastern region set up the pro-Russian statelet in 2014 after the annexation of Crimea.

It comes as Russia banned BBC newsreader Huw Edwards, along with a number of other journalists, as part of its latest wave of sanctions.

Edwards tweeted he had "made the Kremlin cut", adding Wales and Ukraine flag emojis next to his name on the list.

Moscow's foreign ministry issued a list of 39 newly-sanctioned individuals who are now barred from entering the country, in response to UK sanctions over Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

It follows a decision last month by the UK to sanction Russian ministers and members of influential families linked to the President Vladimir Putin.
