Russian solcier gets life in prison

A court in Kyiv has sentenced a 21-year-old Russian soldier to life in prison for killing an unarmed Ukrainian civilian, in the first war crimes trial held since Russia’s invasion.

Vadim Shishimarin was accused of shooting 62-year-old Oleksandr Shelipov, a Ukrainian civilian, in the head in a village in the northeastern Sumy region in the early days of the war.

“The court has found that Shishimarin is guilty and sentences him to life imprisonment,” judge Sergiy Agafonov said on Monday, in the war-torn country’s capital.

“The murder was committed with direct intent.”
