Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has claimed that Israeli mercenaries are fighting against Russia in Ukraine. He made the claim in an interview with Russia’s Sputnik radio on Wednesday. News AFP.
On Sunday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Adolf Hitler, who led the Nazi forces in World War II, had “Jewish blood” on his body. Israel is very angry about this. Russia’s ambassador to Israel has been summoned for comment.
Maria Zakharova told Sputnik Radio today that Israeli mercenaries were fighting side by side with Azov forces in Ukraine. Russia views the Azov forces as “fascist” and “Nazi”.
In 2014, the far-right Azav Bahini came into the discussion. That year, Azov fighters took up arms against pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Danbas region of Ukraine. They have been operating under the Ukrainian military ever since.
On February 24, Russian forces invaded Ukraine. Since then, Azov forces have been fighting alongside the Ukrainian army to stop them. Azov fighters took part in building resistance against Russian troops in the port city of Mariupol.
Earlier on Sunday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was asked about the Ukraine crisis on an Italian television channel. It is said that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is a Jew. What is the reason for Russia’s statement that the campaign was carried out to free Ukraine from Nazi influence?
In response, the Russian Foreign Minister said, “Zelensky is Jewish, what happened? Given this fact, the presence of Nazi forces in Ukraine cannot be denied. I believe that Hitler also had Jewish blood on his body. Even many of the fiercest anti-Semites are Jews. ‘
During World War II, 6 million Jews were killed by Hitler’s Nazi forces in Germany. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a statement that Lavrov had blamed Jews for the killings. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid called the remarks “unforgivable.”
