However, the Kremlin reported that Putin’s conversation with Bennett addressed “historical memory”, the Holocaust and the situation in Ukraine, but did not mention the apology, according to the Times of Israel.

In an interview given last weekend to an Italian channel, the Russian chancellor spoke about an alleged infiltration of neo-Nazis in Ukrainian institutions. When reminded of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s Jewish roots, Lavrov replied that Hitler too had “Jewish blood” and that “some of the worst anti-Semites are Jews.” )

The statement generated outrage around the world, but especially in Ukraine and in Israel, where Foreign Minister Yair Lapid called the Russian Chancellor’s remarks an “unforgivable and outrageous statement, as well as a terrible historic mistake”.
