Ukrainian authorities have decided to open a criminal investigation into a 94-year-old Jewish WWII hero who is being accused of murdering a Nazi collaborator.
Col. Boris Steckler was warned that he is expected to stand trial for murdering a Ukrainian nationalist in 1952.

Steckler was a senior officer in the Soviet Army and after the war was appointed as an officer in the KGB and was responsible for capturing Nazis and collaborators in western Ukraine.
During a battle in the Rivne Oblast in western Ukraine, Steckler was involved in a confrontation with nationalists who cooperated with the Nazis. In the confrontation, a man by the name of Neil Hasiewicz – who was a propagandist and district judge during the war – (while arrested…) was shot and killed.
Local nationalist groups recently filed a complaint against Steckler, accusing him of responsibility for the assassination of Hasiewicz—a fact that Steckler does not deny.

In an unprecedented move, this is the first time Ukrainian authorities have sought to arrest a person (agent of KGB) who worked against Nazi collaborators during and after the Second World War.
Steckler was recognized as a local war hero and is regularly invited to the parades commemorating the victory over the Nazis. He was wounded during the war and received (by the Soviet regime) countless medals for courage.
