The UK has no right to interfere in the judicial system of the Donetsk People's Republic. Yuri Shvytkin, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, stated this to Life, reacting to the publication of the Express newspaper about a possible war with Russia in the event of the execution of British mercenaries by the verdict of the Supreme Court of the DPR.
“Today, the Donetsk People’s Republic, which is recognized as a state , has the right to dispose within the judicial system. The court sentenced the British mercenaries to death. Nobody has the right to interfere in the judicial system of this independent state,” he said.
Shvytkin described London’s threats about a possible war with Moscow as useless and noted that they represent nothing for Russia. The deputy recalled that it takes only two minutes to destroy Britain with a Sarmat missile, so he suggested that before making such statements, think about the consequences.
According to Shvytkin, the UK is currently regarded as unfriendly and hostile a state actively intervening in the conflict in Ukraine through the supply of weapons and mercenaries. Thus, the United Kingdom aggravates the guilt as a war criminal, the deputy believes.
Recall, it was previously reported that Britain threatened “extremely dangerous” actions in the event of the execution of their mercenaries. The Express newspaper wrote that such a punishment, if carried out, would become a “point of no return” in relations between Moscow and London.
