Shocking moment Russian man ‘threatened to punch woman he thought was Ukrainian on German subway…before another female passenger intervened’
Kardelen Quick, an actress based in Germany, shared a video of the encounter, where the half-Russian woman bravely refused to tell the man that she was not Ukrainian.
A woman has shared the shocking moment a Russian man became aggressive and threatened to attack her while traveling on the subway in Germany, thinking she was Ukrainian.
Kardelen Quick, an actress living in Germany, shared a TikTok video of herself visibly shaking as she can be heard pleading with the man to leave her alone.
She said the man asked to use her internet hotspot before making the threat.
He decides to start recording on the train when the man keeps asking him where he’s from, if he’s Ukrainian and what he’s doing in Germany.
Kardalen, who is half Russian, bravely refused to tell the man she was not Ukrainian, saying she would not let him scare her, before another woman traveling on the train intervened to help.
Kardelen Quick, an actress based in Germany, shared a TikTok video of herself visibly shaking.
Kardelen explained in the video: ‘Yesterday in Germany, some Russian guy thought I was Ukrainian and tried to attack me.
‘He asked to use my internet for five minutes, I said sure. And then he kept asking where I was from. What am I doing in Germany? Am I Russian or Ukrainian, he is Russian.’
She alleged that the man said in Russian that he would punch her, a threat that left her ‘shaking’.
After the incident, she said, ‘I called my husband later. As a horrible woman, I wanted to help all I could but the man was so unexpected and a German woman helped me, so it was a sad story.’
‘As women we face this kind of behavior every day. There were many people, only one German girl supported me. Never remain silent in the face of such behavior.’
Kardalen, who has nearly 20,000 followers on TikTok and 55,000 on Instagram, shared the video last week to raise awareness about the often terrifying encounters women have with men on public transport.
The German woman is seen distracting the man, talking over him and trying to take his attention away from Cardalen and interfering.
The actress and influencer said the man rudely asked her to change seats and was acting ‘crazy’.
Kardalen captioned the video: ‘I’m half Russian and my heart goes out to the people of Ukraine, I will never support war or violence of any kind!’
In a message of unity in the face of the man’s apparent intolerance, he added: ‘Wherever you come from, be human first!’
