German prosecutors say the killing of a Georgian man in Berlin last year was ordered by the Russian state. The German government says it’s taking the prosecutors’ statement very seriously, saying it may take further steps against Moscow over the matter, including imposing sanctions.
The victim was a Georgian citizen of Chechen ethnicity who fought against Russian troops in Chechnya. He was killed in broad daylight in the German capital last August. Following the prosecutors’ statement, the Russian ambassador to Germany has been summoned to the foreign ministry in Berlin.
