Important are the markings at the back and the colors of the legs, besides other criteria.

Curculionoidea, Attelabidae, Leaf Rolling Weevil or sometimes also called Giraffe Weevil. But I think this one is in tthe strict sense only correct one single species.
There are many several species around, I am not so familiar with these extremely variable and abundant beetle family.
Just some examples:

Korotyaevirhinus necopinus orientalis
