A Look Into History: Wilhelm von Mirbach

Mirbach was a German diplomat who was served as German Ambassador to Russia in 1918. 

While he was serving in Russia, a group known as the Left Socialist-Revolutionaries wanted to start war between Russia and Germany again. 

So they hired Yakov Blumkin to enter the embassy and shoot Mirbach at point blank range. It didn't exactly spark a major war, but it was just bad blotch in a terrible relationship the countries would share for about one hundred years.
