House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also compares Putin’s “very evil” aggression and recognition of separatist regions to Hitler’s annexation of the Sudetenland in 1938.
“This, my friends, is our moment. This is the Sudetenland — that’s what people were saying there,” Pelosi says, referring to the Munich Security Conference in Germany at the weekend.
