An advisor to Vladimir Putin suggests that Ukraine’s new President may cleanse the eastern portion of the country of ethnic Russians and repopulate the country with Jews. President-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy is Jewish by birth.

From the Moscow Times

Glazyev’s blog post on an obscure nationalist website appeared on the day that Zelenskiy, who is himself Jewish, met with top Ukrainian Orthodox Jewish Hasidic rabbis. Kremlin officials and Russian state-funded media have characterized Ukraine’s pro-Western leadership that swept into power in 2014 as “Nazis” bent on oppressing Russian speakers.

“I don’t rule out, for example, the possibility of a mass movement into southeast Ukrainian land ‘cleansed’ of the Russian population by the inhabitants of the Promised Land tired of permanent war in the Middle East,” Glazyev wrote.
