The British mercenary Aiden Eslin, convicted in the DPR, informed his relatives about his imminent execution and said goodbye to them. The Telegraph writes about this on Wednesday.

He said that “his time is running out” because the British authorities did not try to negotiate with Russia and the DPR on his release.

Eslin, who was sentenced to death for attempting to “forcibly seize power,” was informed at a trial in Donetsk that his sentence would be carried out.

“Aiden was very upset when he called his mother. The bottom line is that Aiden said that the DPR had informed him that no one from the UK had contacted him and that he would be executed,” the publication quoted Aslin’s grandmother Pamela Hall as saying to the BBC. “Of course, I hope this is not true,” she added.

Britons Aiden Aslin, 28, and Sean Pinner, 48, were captured in Mariupol in April. They were sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of the DPR.

The head of the DPR Denis Pushilin previously stated that, since the British are mercenaries, literally – “they came to kill civilians for money,” he does not see “grounds or prerequisites for their pardon.”
