There have been plenty of strange things said by the Kremlin during this invasion of Ukraine, but perhaps nothing has been quite as bonkers as their redundant and erroneous use of World War II imagery.
First, there was the claim that Russia was going to “de-nazify” Ukraine, whose President is a Jewish descendent of Holocaust victims.
Then came Russia’s Hitler-esque war crimes: Deportations to camps, rape, torture, kidnapping, and genocide.
At some point, the Russian Foreign Minister even went so far as to suggest that Hitler came from “Jewish origins” – a claim that conjured an extremely harsh rebuke from Israel.

It is an ideology through which Russia justifies invented rights and privileges for its country,” Morawiecki said. “In the name of this ideology Mariupol and dozens of Ukrainian cities were razed as it sent Russian soldiers to war, convinced them of their superiority, and encouraged them to commit inhuman war crimes – the murder, rape and torture of innocent civilians.”
Hitler’s invasion of Poland was one of the most momentous early occasions in World War II, with the European nation paying a heavy price for their resistance.
