“The two nationwide channels of Russia – NTV and Russia-1 – depicted the same person to be both: an extremist from Germany, who supported a far-right movement in Ukraine; and a pro-Russian protester, who became victim of Ukrainian nationalists.
NTV told it’s viewers, that the person is a German citizen who trained a group of 50 EU citizens (!) to cooperate with “Right Sector” movement in Ukraine (!!) in order to shoot (!!!) into peaceful pro-Russian protesters.
Russia-1, on the other hand, only depicted the person to be a peaceful “federalization supporter” in Ukraine (pro-Russia activist), who became victim of Ukrainian far-right extremists of “Right Sector”, who were, supposedly, backed by Ukrainian police and army. The person was shot in leg, and, as Russia-1 reports, “will not walk for half a year”.
In reality the person is (or he says he is):
1) a pro-Russian activist;
2) citizen of Germany;
3) who brought to Ukraine 500,000 Euro of “his own money” to support pro-Russian protests;
4) caught a bullet in a clash between pro-Russian and pro-Ukrainian activists in Mykolaiv, Southern Ukraine.
(It is unclear however who shot him. Previously a Russian spy Maria Koleda was detained by Security Service of Ukraine, who confirmed that she was shooting with her gun during this clash.)”
