Under the laws of the unrecognized republic, they face the death penalty

Five European citizens captured in eastern Ukraine have appeared before a court administered by Kremlin-backed separatists in Donetsk, Russians said Media.

We are talking about Swedish citizen Matthias Gustafson, Croat Vekoslav Prebeg and British John Harding, Andrew Hill and Dylan Healy. All of them pleaded not guilty to charges of mercenarism and training for the purpose of forcibly seizing power.

In accordance with the laws of the self-proclaimed, unrecognized “Donetsk People's Republic”, they face the death penalty.

In June, the self-declared republic's supreme court sentenced two Britons and one Moroccan citizen to death for mercenarism.
