Russian Foreign Minister Sergeĭ Viklov has disturbed many and angered Israel in a recent statement about Adolf Hitler. In an interview released Sunday, Viklov told Rete 4 on the Italian outlet media set that Hitler had shed Jewish blood.
The comment was made the day after Vadym Boichenko, the mayor of the Ukrainian city Mariupol, said Russia was worse than the Nazis.
