More than 100 Germans joined the separatists in eastern Ukraine

More than 100 Germans joined the separatists in eastern Ukraine.

According to "Welt am Sonntag" over 100 germans joined the seperatists in eastern ukraine, including soldiers with militars training.

Most of these were Germans with USSR backround, and ethnic Germans from Russia who were repatriated by Berlin following World War II.

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.

"When Germans participate in such conflicts, they should be punishable for organizing terrorist activities" Stephan Meyer, internal affairs expert for Germany's ruling coalition said.
Meyer demanded that German citizenship should be revoked for people who joined the seperatists and had double citizenship.

There are many young germans, posting pictures of them with uniforms and weapons in the internet.
According to "Welt am Sonntag", one german died on february 12, 2015.

Meanwhile Andrej Melnik, the Ukrainian ambassador in Berlin asked the government of germany to make sure, that no Germans move towards eastern Ukraine to participate in the murders and deaths.
The german interior minister said, they know that some Germans move towards eastern Ukraine to join the seperatists, but they have no clue about their motivation.

"In case there was any information about a possible trip by persons intending to participate in the conflict in Ukraine, the knowledge would be used to prevent the persons' journey or make it difficult" the german interior Minister told to the "Welt am Sonntag".
