Aiden Aslin happens to be a Ukrainian Marine and a British-Ukrainian national who was born in 1994 in Newark-on-Trent in the United Kingdom. In 2015, Aiden travelled to Syria and spent about 10 months there.
Aiden was part of the al-Hawl offensive against the Islamic State in 2015. He was also the first foreign fighter to be investigated by the UK police. During that period, he gained massive support from the public and politicians who protested against his treatment by Nottinghamshire Police.
Whiles in police custody in the UK, he was questioned under the Terrorism Act on suspicion of engaging “in the preparation to fight against Daesh” and possessing “articles for terrorist purposes in Iraq/Syria”. He was acquitted and he returned to Syria for a second tour of duty with the YPG in 2016.
Aiden criticised the sale of British weapons to Turkey, which uses them in attacks against the Kurds. Aiden was captured by Russian forces in April 2022 in the besieged city of Mariupol during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He was charged with four criminal acts in June which exposed him to capital punishment.
On Thursday 9 June 2022, Aslin was sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic along with Shaun Pinner and a Moroccan national Saaudun Brahim.
