Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman on Tuesday night accused the Israeli regime of supporting neo-Nazis in Ukraine.

Iran PressEurope: Russia’s foreign ministry has accused Israel of supporting neo-Nazis in Ukraine, escalating a row that began when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed Adolf Hitler had Jewish origins.

Maria Zakharova, a spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said: “We have paid attention to the anti-historical statements of Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, which largely explain the current Israeli government’s approach in support of the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv.”

The Russian Foreign ministry went on, saying that “Antisemitism in everyday life and in politics is not stopped and is on the contrary nurtured (in Ukraine).”

Following an initial attempt to maintain a degree of neutrality, Israel openly expressed its support for Ukraine and condemned the Russian military operation. 219
