Putin Tries to Blame the Jews – Israel Today

Putin Tries to Blame the Jews

Monday, March 12, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff
Amid an ongoing investigation into possibly Russian interference in the last US presidential election, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he “could not care less.”
Recently, US Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued a string of indictments in the case, most of them to Russian nationals and companies.
Speaking to to NBC News last Friday, Putin insisted that these individuals, if they are indeed guilty, “do not represent the interests of the Russian state.”
After all, he continued, “they might be Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews, just with Russian citizenship.”
Israeli officials were furious.
Member of Knesset Ksenia Svetlova (Zionist Union), who was born in Moscow, told The Jerusalem Post:
“Maybe the Jews interfered in the American elections, maybe the Jews control the world, maybe Jews slaughtered the Jews in Poland. For all those allegations, there is one origin: Jew-hatred. I expect the Israeli government to come out strongly against these serious remarks made by the Russian president. If Israel won’t defend the Jews, nobody will do so in its place.”
