kiev - Justice in Ukraine has aimed at a 94-year-old veteran of the Russian Red Army in connection with the death of a nationalist rebel in 1952. The question is whether there was a murder here. The elated ex-military Boris Steckler is raiding a jail sentence, according to the British newspaper The Guardian.
The victim is the Ukrainian nationalist Nil Khasevych who was killed in battle with Russian security forces together with two others. Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union at the time of the incident.
Steckler confirmed in 2013 that he was in charge of that operation. He stated that the nationalist had shot himself. The Jewish veteran has been rewarded for many times and has also served at the KGB.
