The EU denounces Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s claim that Western policy toward Russia over Ukraine resembles the Nazi’s “Final Solution” plan of genocide against the Jewish people.

“The Russian regime’s manipulation of the truth to justify their illegal war of aggression against Ukraine has reached another unacceptable and despicable low point,” the EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell says.
