Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba lashes out at his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov for saying Nazi leader Adolf Hitler “had Jewish blood” and that Jews are among the worst antisemites.

“This is the perverted logic of the Russian elite,” Kuleba says in a video statement sent to the Kan public broadcaster.

“Even Minister Lavrov, who knows what diplomacy is, he cannot hide anymore the deeply rooted antisemitism — the antisemitism that is deeply rooted into Russian elites.”

“Let’s admit the fact that Russians hate other nations. They believe in the supremacy of their own nation over others, and this is why this regime must be stopped in its aggressive plans and actions,” he adds.
