First war crimes trial since Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine set to begin in Kyiv

Euronews says the first war crimes trial since Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, against a Russian soldier accused of killing an unarmed civilian, gets underway in Kyiv on Wednesday.

The trial, expected to be followed by several others, will test the Ukrainian justice system at a time when international institutions are also conducting their own investigations into abuses committed by Russian forces.

Vadim Shishimarin, 21, will appear at Kyiv’s Solomyansky district court from 2:00pm (1200 CET) over the death of a 62-year-old man in northeastern Ukraine on 28th February.

Charged with war crimes and premeditated murder, the soldier from Irkutsk in Siberia faces a possible life sentence.
