Fernando Andre Sabag Montiel, 35, of Villa del Parque, Buenos Aires, Argentina goes by the name Fernando Salim Cristiano on social media. Schwarze Sonne, a type of sun wheel symbol originally employed in Nazi Germany, is tattooed on his left elbow.

In the late 20th century, Schwarze Sonne became widely used by white nationalists, neo-fascist, neo-Nazi and the far-right. Brenton Tarrant, 31, of Grafton, Australia had the symbol emblazoned on his rucksack when he fatally shot 51 people and injured 40 others on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15, 2019.

Payton Gendron, 18, of Conklin, New York, United States wore Schwarze Sonne on his body armor before he fatally shot 10 people and wounded three others at Tops Friendly Markets in Buffalo, New York on May 14, 2022. He also placed the symbol on the front of his digital manifesto

.

In July 2022, Sabag Montiel was seen criticizing Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, 69, of Buenos Aires during a live Cronica TV interview. She assumed office as Argentina’s vice president on December 10, 2019.

In another Cronica TV interview, Sabag Montiel praised his girlfriend for working to earn money instead of being a benefits scrounger. The interview showed her selling sugar candy in the street.

Fernandez de Kirchner is accused of awarding public works contracts to a family friend. She is currently on trial for corruption.

On September 1, 2022, Sabag Montiel was outside Fernandez de Kirchner’s house in Buenos Aires. Carrying a semi-automatic .32-caliber Bersa loaded with five bullets, he joined the group of her supporters greeting her there.

Sabag Montiel got near Fernandez de Kirchner and pointed the handgun in her face but when he pulled the trigger, the firearm failed to discharge. He was immediately arrested.
