Two Russian soldiers plead guilty in the war crimes tribunal in Ukraine

Two Russian soldiers have pleaded guilty to war crimes in Ukraine. Alexander Bobikin and Alexander Ivanov were sentenced to 12 years in prison by the court.

Prosecutors said the bombings destroyed an educational institution in Derhaci.

"I am completely guilty of the crimes I have been accused of. "We shot in Ukraine," Bobikin told the court.

While Ivanov said: "I regret and ask for a reduction of the sentence."

A Ukrainian court sentenced a Russian soldier to life in prison on Monday for killing an unarmed civilian. Russia said it had no information about the trial and that the lack of a diplomatic mission in Ukraine limited its ability to provide legal aid.
