BERLIN, March 15. /TASS/. Dozens of German citizens have joined the ranks of the militia fighters in eastern Ukraine. Most of these are of ethnic German re-settlers and have even been part of the German army, Welt am Sonntag reported on Sunday.
Unlike German jihadis who went to fight with the "Islamic State" in Syria, German citizens participating in the conflict in eastern Ukraine did not have to worry about facing prosecution back home, but this could soon change.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has its own misgivings with the "war tourism"мне срочно from Germany. Andrej Melnik, Kyiv's ambassador in Berlin, told Welt am Sonntag he had asked the German government to ensure that German citizens "did not move towards the east [of Ukraine] or participate in the murders and deaths."
There are currently many German youths who post pictures of themselves with weapons and uniforms in the Internet, boasting of their participation in the Ukraine struggle. One German has lost his life fighting for the separatists on February 12, research by the German weekly revealed.
