After two days of complete silence, Russia responded to all criticism, in particular Israeli It affected his foreign ministerSergei LavrovFollowing reports that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler had Jewish roots and that the neo-Nazis were currently ruling Kiev.
Today, Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed Lavrov’s view that the fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky was of Jewish descent did not prevent the neo-Nazis from occupying Ukraine.
‘Contrary to history’
According to Reuters, “anti-Semitism is not stopped in everyday life and politics, but is fed in Ukraine,” it said in a statement.
In addition, the statements of Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid “contradict history” and “largely explain why the current Israeli government supports the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev.”
Lavrov today accused Israel of backing these “neo-Nazis”, adding to the controversy that had erupted between his country and Israel since last Sunday that Hitler was of Jewish descent.
Israeli Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett harshly criticized the Russian statements, saying in a statement on Monday that “such lies are aimed at accusing the Jews of being the most heinous crime in history.”
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, whose grandfather died in the Holocaust, saw Jews’ accusations of anti-Semitism as “the lowest level of racism.”
In addition, many Western leaders condemned Lavrov’s statements, accusing Russia of forgetting the lessons of World War II.
It is noteworthy that during an interview with Italian television last Sunday, Lavrov issued these statements in response to the question of why his country wants to “eradicate Nazism” in Ukraine when the President of Ukraine is Jewish. He later replied, “I think Hitler also had Jewish descent, so this does not mean anything.”
He added: “We have long heard Jewish sages say that the Jews are the greatest anti-Semites.
This has provoked significant tensions with Israel, which has shown its support for Kiev Russian military action begins On the 24th of last February.
But he initially avoided directly criticizing Moscow, and did not use the official sanctions imposed on surrounding Russian President Vladimir Putin for fear of a rift in relations with Moscow, which is influential in neighboring Syria.
However, to add injury to Lavrov’s past and present statements, relations have deteriorated since last month (March 2022), following the Lapid accusation that Russia committed war crimes on Ukrainian soil!
