Israel’s Prime Minister says he has accepted an apology from Vladimir Putin today after the Russian foreign minister said Adolf Hitler had ‘Jewish blood’.
Israeli PM Naftali Bennett had emerged as a potential mediator between Russia and Ukraine shortly after Moscow’s invasion.
But that role was thrown into doubt this week when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made comments about the Holocaust that was deeply offensive to Jews.
Asked in an interview with an Italian news channel about Russian claims that it invaded Ukraine to ‘denazify’ the country, Lavrov said that Ukraine could still have Nazi elements even though its president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, is Jewish.
‘In my opinion, Hitler also had Jewish origins, so it doesn’t mean absolutely anything.
‘For some time we have heard from the Jewish people that the biggest antisemites were Jewish,’ he said, speaking to the station in Russian, dubbed over by an Italian translation.
Bennett and Putin spoke over the telephone and a subsequent Israeli statement said the Russian President had apologized.
But the Russian statement about the call made no mention of an apology, instead saying they had emphasized the importance of marking the Nazi defeat in World War II, which Russia celebrates on Monday.
