Russian soldier sentenced to life in prison in Ukraine’s first war crimes trial since invasion

A Ukrainian court has sentenced a Russian soldier to life in prison for killing an unarmed civilian in the first war crimes trial following Moscow’s invasion.

Vadim Shishimarin, a 21-year-old tank commander, pleaded guilty to killing 62-year-old Oleksandr Shelipov in the village of Chupakhivka, after being ordered to shoot him.

Last week, Shishimarin told the court he did not want to kill but would accept his fate.
