Instead of apologizing for claiming that Hitler had Jewish blood, Moscow’s Foreign Ministry has further escalated its word war with Israel on Tuesday.
The Foreign Ministry said, “Israel supports the Neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine”.
The Ministry also chided Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who earlier called for Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to apologize for his Hitler comment.
The Ministry said Lapid’s comments are “anti-historical” and “explains to a large extent why the current Israeli government supports the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv.”
Earlier, Lapid slammed Lavrov for his statement, saying it was false.
Aside from Lapid, Western leaders also denounced Lavrov’s comments, including US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who said his “friend Yair Lapid put it perfectly.”
“It is incumbent on the world to speak out against such vile, dangerous rhetoric and support our Ukrainian partners in the face of the Kremlin’s vicious assault,” Blinken stated.
