Widow of 'victim' of war crime trial sergeant cannot forgive

The widow of an unarmed civilian whose death is at the centre of the first Ukraine war crimes trial says she cannot forgive Russian forces as they have inflicted "too much grief" on civilians. Vadim Shyshimarin, a 21-year-old Russian sergeant, is accused of killing Oleksandr Shelypov, who is alleged to have been shot in the head through an open car window in the north-eastern village of Chupakhivka. Mr Shelypov's wife Kateryna Shelypova told ITV News that her husband, who served with the KGB during the Soviet era, was killed just outside their home, close to where Russian troops were allegedly trying to enter a neighbour's property.
