Kremlin Again Targets Israel with Claims of Supporting ‘Neo-Nazi Regime’ in Ukraine
The Kremlin escalated its ongoing diplomatic feud with Israel Tuesday, May 3, when the Russian Foreign Ministry accused Jerusalem of supporting a “neo-Nazi regime” in Ukraine.
The latest incendiary remarks appeared in a post on the Foreign Ministry’s Telegram channel, a day after Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid demanded an apology from his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, for his “unforgivable and outrageous” claim that Adolf Hitler had “Jewish blood.”
Moscow doubled down on Lavrov’s stance in the Telegram statement, arguing that Lapid’s “anti-historical statements to a large extent explain the commitment of the current Israeli government to support the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv.”
Russia has sought to justify its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by claiming that the country is controlled by neo-Nazis.
Numerous critics in the international community have dismissed this reasoning by noting that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is Jewish and a descendant of Holocaust victims. (NYPost / VFI News)
