Ukraine war crimes trial: Russian soldiers learn their punishments

A pair of Russian soldiers who pleaded guilty to shelling eastern Ukraine during the invasion by Moscow’s army have now been sentenced to life in prison

Two captured Russian soldiers have each been sentenced to 11.5 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to shelling a town in eastern Ukraine during the war, a report says.

Alexander Bobikin and Alexander Ivanov were told their punishment while standing inside a glass box at a district court in central Ukraine, according to Reuters.

“The guilt of Bobikin and Ivanov has been proven in full,” Judge Evhen Bolybok reportedly said.

The decision comes after a 21-year-old Russian soldier was handed a life sentence for shooting a 62-year-old man in the head in the early days of the war.
