Here are two photos of Ukrainian-born German supercentenarian Jonathan Richter (6 Sept 1888 - 12 Oct 1998), who was Germany's oldest living man before his death at the age of 110 years, 36 days. I'm not sure why this case seems to be so obscure (I didn't even know he existed until a few weeks ago), since he seemed to have been publicly recognized as the oldest man in Germany.

Aged 109:

Shortly before turning 110:

I had heard of him before, but didn't know he was born in the Ukraine. Would you know where, exactly?

Overduidelijk misschien.

This source says he was born in "Nowa Rudnja" in Ukraine, and emigrated to Germany in 1994, at 106. I've found three possible settlements under the name Nova Rudnya in present-day Ukraine, all are small villages located in the Zhytomyr Oblast, within around 100 kilometres from each other.
