烏克蘭戰爭。艾登-阿斯林的母親認為兒子的釋放 "永遠不會發生"。

一名英國男子在被俄羅斯釋放後返回英國,他的母親說她 "認為這一天永遠不會發生"。

阿斯林先生和其他四名英國人--約翰-哈丁、迪倫-希利、安德魯-希爾和肖恩-平納--都在其中。周四上午,他們在希思羅機場着陸後,現在已經與家人團聚。

伍德女士在紐瓦克的家中告訴英國廣播公司,她是在周三上午接到外交部的電話時才知道她兒子被釋放的消息。"我以為這一天永遠不會發生。

"我需要做的第一件事就是給他一個大大的擁抱,確保這是真的。現在仍然感覺不真實。"

兩個月後的4月,阿斯林先生和平納先生在該國沿海城市馬里烏波爾被捕,並被自稱的頓涅茨克人民共和國的法院判處死刑。

甚至就在星期二,在他們獲釋的前一天,社交媒體上開始流傳這兩名囚犯面臨的死刑判決已經執行的謠言。

他的母親說,關於阿斯林先生被囚禁期間的一些細節讓她感到驚恐,她解釋說,他需要時間從這場磨難中恢復。

"她說:"他被用於宣傳目的,我很高興現在不會再有這樣的事情發生了。


The mother of a British man who has returned to the UK following his release by Russia has said she "thought this day would never happen".

Mr Aslin and four other Britons - John Harding, Dylan Healy, Andrew Hill and Shaun Pinner - were among them. They have now been reunited with their families after touching down at Heathrow Airport on Thursday morning.

Speaking from her home in Newark, Ms Wood told the BBC she only found out about her son's release on Wednesday morning when she received a call from the Foreign Office, adding: "I thought this day would never happen.

"The first thing I needed to do was to give him a big hug and make sure it was real. It still doesn't feel real now."

Mr Aslin and Mr Pinner were captured in the country in the coastal city of Mariupol two months later in April and were sentenced to death by a court in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic.

Even as recently as Tuesday, a day before their release, rumours on social media began circulating that the death sentence the two prisoners had been facing had been carried out.

His mother said some of the details about Mr Aslin's time in captivity have horrified her, explaining that he will need time to recover from the ordeal.

"He was being used for propaganda purposes, I'm so glad there will now be no more of that," she said.
