The court of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) sentenced four soldiers from Ukraine's Zaporizhzhya battalion to life imprisonment for allegedly attempting to murder civilians in Mariupol in 2022, according to the Russian Telegram channel Astra on May 24.

The Russians have accused Ukrainian Armed Forces fighters Vladyslav Kulyk, Oleh Komachevskyi, Dmytro Dobrovolskyi, and Oleksandr Romashyn of allegedly shooting three peaceful residents of Mariupol while stationed near the Mariupol Metallurgical Plant.
