Russia, due to the statement of its Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, has found itself in a difficult position in relations with Israel. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin had to intervene.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Putin had to apologize to Bennett for the words of Sergei Lavrov when he said that “Hitler also had Jewish blood.” And also that “the most bitter anti-Semites are usually Jews.”

Bennett accepted Putin's apology for Lavrov's statement and thanked him for clarifying the Russian president's attitude towards the Jewish people and the memory of the Holocaust, the Israeli prime minister's office said in a statement.

Lavrov's scandalous statement about Jewish Hitler: the main thing

Lavrov had the recklessness to express such words in an interview with the Italian edition of Mediaset. He then discussed the “Nazification of Ukraine” and stated that the presence of Jewish blood in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky means nothing, in fact comparing him to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Such words caused a flurry of criticism from the entire civilized world. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said that such statements are the same as saying that Jews killed themselves during the Holocaust.

Vladimir Zelensky also reacted to such statements. He said that Russia had forgotten the lessons of World War II. So now he is self-destructing. He also recalled that it was the Russians who launched rocket attacks on the memorial sites of the victims of the Holocaust – Babi Yar in Kyiv and Drobitsky Yar near Kharkov. In addition, in Kharkov, a prisoner of Nazi concentration camps, Boris Romanchenko, died as a result of shelling. During World War II it passed through Buchenwald, Peenemünde, Dora and Bergen-Belsen. A 96-year-old Kharkiv resident died when a Russian shell hit the house where he lived.

And even in Germany, Lavrov's words were called “absurd nonsense.”

But Russia decided on this do not stop. And after the words of Yair Lapid, the Russian Foreign Ministry “reproached” him for the fact that Israel “supports the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv.” This is how the Russians call the Ukrainian government and its people. And they also charged that “Israeli mercenaries are fighting together with the Azov fighters.”

But after that, “anxiety” arose in Russia. Before that, Israel maintained a certain neutrality in the war that Russia launched against Ukraine. After According to Lavrov, there was a possibility that Israel would lift its ban on the transfer of Israeli weapons from the Baltic countries to Ukrainians.

It is worth noting that the day before talking with Putin, Bennett spoke with Vladimir Zelensky. Among the topics was Lavrov's scandalous statement.
