Russia's ambassador to Israel worsens relations

As Russia continues to visit violence upon Ukraine, the former country's ambassador to Israel made a very repulsive statement:
And so it has unraveled.

The Foreign Ministry’s summons of Russian Ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov on Monday to protest the egregious comments by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov saying that Hitler had “Jewish blood” marks the end of Israel’s effort to somehow stay above the Russian-Ukrainian fray.

Lavrov’s comments came in response to a question by an Italian radio interviewer about how he could call Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a Nazi, when Zelensky himself is a Jew. In addition, Lavrov said, “For a long time now we’ve been hearing the wise Jewish people say that the biggest antisemites are the Jews themselves.”

Regardless of Israel’s genuine interest in not wanting to antagonize Russia because this could boomerang against it in Syria, where the Russians hold sway and could cause Israel considerable damage, the daily horrors in Ukraine, moves in the international arena forcing nations to take sides, and words such as Lavrov’s have made it impossible for Israel to remain “neutral.”
What Lavrov did was a form of virtue-signaling as a way of exonerating antisemitic non-Israeli/Jewish populations from guilt in the Holocaust, by claiming the worst totalitarians in history were supposedly Jewish themselves. But all they're doing is minimizing the issues involved, and that's definitely what Lavrov did. A most truly sick statement he made, but hardly surprising coming from spokespersons for warmongers like Putin turned out to be.
