An appeal by British authorities over the execution in occupied Donetsk was shrugged off by Russia as too “preachy.”

A British man sentenced to death by Russian proxies in occupied Ukraine has informed his family his execution is set to go ahead and “time is running out” to stop it.

“Aiden was extremely upset when he called his mother this morning. The bottom line is Aiden has said the DPR has told him nobody from the U.K. has made contact, and that he will be executed,” Pamela Hall, the grandmother of Aiden Aslin, told the BBC on Wednesday.

Aslin was captured by Russian forces amid heavy fighting in Ukraine’s port city of Mariupol in April, and he, along with fellow British fighter Shaun Pinner and Moroccan fighter Brahim Saadoun, were sentenced to death following a three-day show trial in the unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic.

All three men were dubbed “mercenaries” by Russian authorities and the local rulers in occupied Donetsk, despite the fact that under international law they should be recognized as prisoners of war for their official status as members of the Ukrainian military.
