Summary

And, in an attempt to justify it, Putin is invoking claims about Jews that “the whole civilized world said was a red line crossed.” “In the same way that Nazis killed 6 million Jews during World War II, they are destroying Ukraine as a state,” Golberg said. It shows a Soviet officer shaking hands with a Nazi officer after the two sides met after their successful invasion and partition of Poland, a result of the secret pact Josef Stalin entered into with Adolf Hitler shortly before the outbreak of World War II.A sign behind the two men reads “Drohobych,” pointing in the direction of the town just a few kilometers down the road from where they stand.Ukraine’s geography blessed it with lands so fertile it’s known “the breadbasket of Europe,” but cursed it to repeatedly being at the mercy of larger and more powerful neighbors to both its east and west as they battled for power and influence in Europe.Nazi Germany captured Drohobych in 1941 and decimated the town’s Jewish population.Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov sparked outrage by claiming Hitler had Jewish blood and that Jews were complicit in their own genocide, adding: “For a long time now, we’ve been hearing the wise Jewish people say that the biggest anti-Semites are the Jews themselves.”Despite Putin reportedly offering an apology for Lavrov’s remarks, Golberg remained incensed.
