According to Moskovsky Komsomolets tabloid, Maxim Korkin was riding the metro last May when he put on the swastika-bearing helmet and raised his arm in a Nazi salute, said prosecutor Alexander Rybak.
The display outraged a fellow passenger, who showed him the middle finger. Korkin then attacked the man with a penknife, stabbing him in the heart.
The man survived. It took police about six months to track down and arrest Korkin.
