The EU says Russian President Vladimir Putin is looking to destroy Ukraine and that his actions are comparable to those of the Nazis in World War II.

“He is talking about de-nazifying Ukraine, but he behaves like Nazis. So this is all in his head,” EU spokesman Peter Stano tells reporters in Brussels when asked about claims by Putin that a “genocide” was taking place against Russian speakers in Ukraine.
