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.
