The man is also suspected of violating military gun control laws because of a photograph of him holding a Russian assault rifle. In addition, a German citizen is accused of using letters Z, banned in a number of federal states of Germany as a symbol of support for the special operation in Ukraine. According to the criminal legislation of the country, a man can face a fine and imprisonment for up to three years.
