Russian Foreign Ministry accused Israel on Tuesday of supporting neo-nazis in Ukraine, Israeli media reported. 

On Monday, Israeli officials had condemned Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for his remarks during an interview with Italian television where he had claimed that Adolf Hitler had Jewish roots. 

In particular, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid labeled Lavrov’s remarks as an “unforgivable” falsehood.

The Russian ministry replied in a statement on Tuesday, saying that Lapid’s comments were “anti-historical” and “explaining to a large extent why the current Israeli government supports the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv”.

The ministry went on, saying that “Antisemitism in everyday life and in politics is not stopped and is on the contrary nurtured (in Ukraine).”

Following an initial attempt to maintain a degree of neutrality, Israel openly expressed its support for Ukraine and condemned the Russian military operation.
