After a series of outlandish accusations from the Kremlin about Jewish complicity in the Holocaust, Russian president Vladimir Putin has apologized to his Israeli counterpart, Naftali Bennett.⁠

Bennett and other Israeli leaders had taken offense at the suggestion that Jews had been partly responsible for their murder by the Nazis during World War II, an argument first made by Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov on Sunday in a misbegotten effort to explain why Russia was seeking to “de-nazify” Ukraine, a country led by a Jewish president who had family perish in the Holocaust.⁠

Bennett spoke with the Russian leader by telephone on Thursday. “The Prime Minister accepted President Putin’s apology for Lavrov’s remarks and thanked him for clarifying the President’s attitude towards the Jewish people and the memory of the Holocaust,” Bennett’s office said afterwards.⁠

The apology appears to conclude a nearly week-long spat that offered yet another purview into the warped historical and geopolitical thinking guiding an isolated Kremlin that has grasped for justifications since launching an invasion of Ukraine in late February.⁠

  1. All this has nothing to do with and why a Jewish leader of Ukraine still has a good portion of his military full of Nazis?

  2. Why is he apologizing to Israel? Those were Germans the nazi killed in WW2…smh its like no one knows facts anymore. Israeli are middle eastern and the jews the nazi killed and hate are white people.

  3. We know about Putin ,but where is the criticism for Israel still not condemning Russia . They can’t ! When they’re doing the same to the Palestinians.

  4. Words are cheap. Don’t turn your back cuz Putin will stab it when you let your guard down. He can’t be trusted and must end his war in Ukraine. 😡

  5. Putin must apologize to Ukraine whose people were shot in the back of head , hands tied, raped in front of killed husband, bombed in the shelter with child.
