Russia’s foreign minister says three men sentenced to death – two Britons and one Moroccan – committed crimes in a breakaway Ukrainian region.

All three were convicted by a Russian proxy court in the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic

UK PM Boris Johnson urges ministers to do “everything in their power” to secure the release of the two Britons.

Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner were fighting with the Ukrainian army and their sentencing is an “egregious breach” of the Geneva Conventions, the UK says.

Meanwhile, there's a risk of a major cholera outbreak in the occupied port city of Mariupol, the UK’s Ministry of Defence says

The exiled deputy mayor says the 100,000 people still in the city are at growing risk of disease. (BBC)
