Death sentence for foreigners in «DPR» should motivate Europe to more decisive action - Zelensky.

The death sentences handed down to British citizens by the "court" of the self-proclaimed "DPR" should motivate Europe to unite and act more decisively.

This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, who spoke with students and faculties of British universities, Ukrinform reports.

"What is happening with international law, with the violation of any law, any legislation of any state by Russia is a great tragedy. And what has been done to the citizens of Great Britain is already a tragic tradition for these people (Russians - ed.). They do so with absolutely everyone, and there can be no excuses for such steps and such actions," Zelensky said.

According to the president, in the wake of this, European nations should unite, act more powerfully, and condemn Russia by action, not words.

"Europe, the whole world, and skeptical countries, as well as conditional pacifists in relations with Russia, who are constantly looking for a way to find such a mood in the conversation, so as not to stir any business relationship – for them this is very a powerful and dangerous signal that Russia acts in this way against any citizen of any state," the President added.

The self-styled court of the self-proclaimed “DPR” has earlier sentenced to death British nationals Sean Pinner and Aiden Aslin, as well as Moroccan Brahim Saadun, who had been fighting as part of Ukraine’s Armed Forces. The terrorists accused them of "mercenary operations and actions aimed at seizing power."
