Court’s verdict to the Briton Benjamin Stimson for his terror actions in Donbas conflict zone is a strong message to the supporters of the pro-Russian illegal armed groups in Ukraine and world terror organizations. The press service of Ukraine’s embassy to UK twitted that.
“Benjamin Stimson was sentenced to 5.4 years of imprisonment for his actions in Ukraine. Court ruling constitutes a precedent for future.
This case should stop those who commit acts of terrorism, whether that is at home or abroad, and should send a strong message to all those who are considering joining the pro-Russian DNR/LNR terrorist organizations in Ukraine,” reads the message.
As we reported earlier, Benjamin Stimson, from Oldham, Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to an offence under UK terrorism laws. He was jailed for five years and four months at Manchester Crown Court.
