A Russian passenger claiming to be a Cossack attacked a Jewish man on a flight from Moscow to Munich.

Vladimir Shamanov was drunk when he started insulting other passengers he thought were Jewish, the Russian daily Vremya Novostey reported.

After vowing to “show those kikes,” Shamanov allegedly attacked another passenger, who proved stronger and subdued him. German authorities fined Shamanov, who was banned from Aeroflot flights.
