First Russian soldier on trial for war crimes in Ukraine pleads GUILTY

Daily Mirror says the first Russian soldier on trial for war crimes in Ukraine has pleaded guilty.

Tank commander Vadim Shishimarin, 21, murdered a 62-year-old civilian in the northeast Ukrainian village of Chupakhivka, east of Kyiv on February 28 – just four days after despot Vladimir Putin ordered troops over the border.

Shishimarin told a Kyiv district court today that he pleaded guilty.

The admission in Ukraine’s first war crimes trial will be of huge symbolic value to Kyiv.

Prosecutors claimed the soldier and four of his comrades were under-fire from Ukrainian troops and shot at a civilian’s car to escape.

After driving the vehicle to Chupakhivka, in Sumy Oblast, they found a local chatting on the phone and riding his bike.
