Putin's Gloating TV Stooges Laugh At Death Sentences Handed Down To Two Britons..

Vladimir Putin's propagandists have gloated over death sentences handed to two Britons fighting in Ukraine - laughing at the prospect of the pair being shot while accusing the government of doing 'nothing' to help them. 

Aiden Aslin, 28, and Shaun Pinner, 48, were sentenced to death by firing squad last week by a rogue court in the 'Donetsk People's Republic', which accused them of being mercenaries. In fact, the two men are regular soldiers in the Ukrainian army. Liz Truss, a favourite target of Russian state media, spoke out last week to condemn the sentences which she said had 'absolutely no legitimacy' while vowing 'to do everything we can to support' the imprisoned pair. 

Vladimir Solovyov, a man often known as Putin's mouthpiece, took aim at Truss on his show Sunday night - joking that Aiden and Pinner will be shot whether she recognises the sentence or not, and her words will not bring them back to life.
