Thugs holding British fighters captured in Ukraine forced them to call The Sun to beg for their lives
The Sun says RUSSIAN-backed thugs holding two British fighters captured in Ukraine forced them to call The Sun begging for their lives before their kangaroo court trial, we can now reveal.
Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin both rang our newsdesk with virtually the same scripted pleas.
Using a satellite phone, they warned they faced the death penalty unless the demands of the Kremlin henchmen holding them were met.
His voice shaking with emotion, Shaun told The Sun he was facing 20 years in jail or death after being charged with being an “illegal combatant”. He added: “We’re scared.”
The pair — captured in Mariupol — were feared to have called at gunpoint on April 25, in a breach of the Geneva Convention protecting PoWs.
