Captured soldier Sgt Vadim Shishimarin was convicted of killing Oleksandr Shelipov, in the north-eastern village of Chupakhivka on February TWENTY EIGHT.

He admitted shooting Mr Shelipov but said he had been acting on orders and asked forgiveness of his widow.

Multiple other alleged war crimes are being investigated by Ukraine.
