A 57-year-old Russian citizen suspected of murdering two Ukrainian soldiers in Germany is a fan of Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin. It turned out that the attacker was also a well-known person in pro-Putin circles.

This was reported by Serhii Sumlennyi, director of the Center for European Resilience Initiative in Berlin, on the Kyiv24 TV channel. He noted that even despite the law banning anti-Ukrainian sentiment in Germany, pro-Putin Russians continue to promote Kremlin narratives.

"The police in Germany are not very active in disseminating information. This is a normal practice for investigations. What we know now is already more than the police usually disseminate. We know who this man is who was detained for the murder of Ukrainian soldiers. We know that he is 57 years old," he said.

Sumlennyi emphasized that there are a significant number of anti-Ukrainian Russians in Germany, who even unite in certain groups. And the suspect in the murder of Ukrainians is a well-known figure in pro-Putin circles.

"There are many of them in Germany. He was a member of many of these communities and even openly wore chevrons with the letter "Z". They are proud of this. In Germany, the display of these symbols is prohibited. But in fact, this law does not work," he added.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on Saturday, April 27, in the Bavarian city of Murnau am Staffelsee, Ukrainian army servicemen were killed. Both victims, born in 1987 and 2001, were undergoing medical rehabilitation in Germany.

On Sunday, April 28, the Russian was notified of being suspected of murder. The court chose arrest as a measure of restraint. As of the evening of April 28, the Russian citizen was in custody.

The information was confirmed by the sources of Ukrainian journalist Andrii Tsapliienko.

Ukrainians in Murnau, who saw the victims just a few hours before the tragedy, claim that they knew these guys and that they were never drunk. But the Russian Z-fan has repeatedly provoked other Ukrainian refugees and even threatened them with physical violence because of his beliefs.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted to the murder of two Ukrainian soldiers in Germany.
