have Not even served half of the term

Behind the bars of Soviet detention center 18-year-old Amateur pilot from the German city of Wedel came at the end of may 1987, immediately after the arrest it on the red square in Moscow. Some time the rust has overcome in his light “Cessna” more than a thousand kilometers and four borders – Germany, Iceland, Finland and the USSR, show off in front of the cameras of tourists and the KGB, and then took it “under the white hands” Committee members and the police.
Judge Mathias rust after he was three months spent in the detention center – so much lasted the preliminary investigation. The young German was accused of three crimes – kilometer voyage “Cessna” Soviet court considered hooliganism, violation of the rules of air travel and the actual illegal crossing of the state border of the USSR.

Whatever it was, the home of rust met without special reverence. Relations with Pro-Western Germany from the Soviet Union was then not particularly warm and friendly, but to spoil them, and even in such a reckless way, the Germans clearly did not want to.

There is a fervent young man decided to conquer the nurse, and when she did not respond to his feelings, Mathias stabbed the girl with a knife. In different sources provided data on a 2.5-year or 4-year terms of imprisonment – such was the punishment for the assailant. But informants agree that rust again served only a small portion of the appointed term.

At the beginning of the two thousandth of rust caught by the hand for shoplifting – a Hindu stole from the Department store cashmere sweater. This case has prompted journalists to remember about the German adventurer. Press once again persistently exaggerated rumors about the inadequacy of this character (this kind of talk began to circulate immediately upon return of the rust from the Soviet Union, and after the attack on nurses only intensified).
