Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba and United Kingdom Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs Elizabeth Truss keep working together to release the prisoners of war in the Russian-occupied Donetsk.
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Twitter, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“In our today’s call, Elizabeth Truss and I coordinated efforts to step up pressure on Russia. I look forward to the next round of UK sanctions. We both agreed that no one in the world has a right to get weary of this war until Ukraine prevails,” Kuleba wrote.
Kuleba and Truss strongly condemned the sham trial against prisoners of war in the Russian-occupied Donetsk.
“As combatants, they are protected by international humanitarian law and must be treated accordingly. We keep working together to ensure their release,” Kuleba noted.
A reminder that the so-called ‘court’ of the self-proclaimed ‘DPR’ sentenced three foreign citizens, who took part in hostilities as part of the Ukrainian Army, to death. Pro-Russian terrorists accused two British citizens, Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner, and Moroccan national Brahim Saadoune of being ‘mercenaries’ for Ukraine.
