A Ukrainian court sentenced a Russian soldier to life in prison for killing a civilian, in the first war crimes trial since Russia’s invasion began in February.

Vadim Shishimarin, 21, pleaded guilty to killing 62-year-old civilians in the northeastern Ukrainian village of Chupahivka on February 28.

Shishimarin “fired several shots through the open window of the car with a Kalashnikov rifle into the head of the victim,” according to the Ukrainian prosecutor general’s office. “The man died at the scene just a few dozen meters from his home.”

According to televised footage from the courtroom, Shishimarin remained silent in a glass box with his hands behind his back as the verdict was delivered.

Shishimarin’s lawyers said they would appeal.
