Russian Foreign Minister Compares Western Alliance Nation’s Policy On Moscow To Hitler’s ‘Final Solution’

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov likens Western policies on Russia to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s “Final Solution” plan of genocide against Jewish people.

Moscow’s top diplomat — whose previous comments claiming Hitler had Jewish ancestry led to President Vladimir Putin to issue a rare apology on his behalf last year — made the comparison at his annual press conference.

Israel demanded an apology after those statements.

Lavrov’s latest diatribe comes days after Jerusalem’s new foreign minister broke with the policy of the previous government since the Ukraine invasion and held a phone call with the top Russian diplomat, also reportedly angering Kyiv in the process.

“Just as Napoleon mobilized practically all of Europe against the Russian Empire, just as Hitler mobilized and captured… the majority of European countries and sent them against the Soviet Union, now the United States has organized a coalition,” Lavrov says.

Western countries, he says, are “by proxy through Ukraine waging war against our country.”

“The task is the same: the final solution of the ‘Russian question.’ Just as Hitler wanted to finally solve the Jewish question.”
