(FreedomBeacon.com)- When Russian President Vladimir Putin declared the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine “independent” and send in Russian troops to invade Ukraine as part of a so-called “peacekeeping” mission, he accused Ukraine of being occupied by Nazis.
Putin promised to push the “demilitarization and de-Nazification of Ukraine” – another indication that Putin is looking for any way to make his war on Ukraine look justifiable.
The problem? President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine is…Jewish. Not only that, but he is the democratically elected leader of Ukraine.
On Wednesday, Zelensky responded to the accusations from Russia.
“You are told we are Nazis, but how can a people support Nazis that gave more than 8 million lives for the victory over Nazism?” he asked. “How can I be a Nazi? Tell my grandpa, who went through the whole war in the infantry of the Soviet Army and died as a colonel in independent Ukraine.”
In his attempt to justify the unjustifiable, #Russia's assault on #Ukraine, Putin referred to a fictional genocide & set goal of "denazification of Ukraine," a country that overwhelmingly elected a Jew president.
Goebbels & Hitler would have been impressed.

It’s clear at this point that even Putin doesn’t believe what he’s saying – but he needs something to justify the bombs that have rained down on Ukraine since earlier this week.
On Monday, Putin also claimed that Ukraine is engaging in a policy of rooting out the Russian language and culture from the country entirely – another excuse to send his forces into the country.
However, Putin was undermined by his own argument when he didn’t just send troops into Donetsk and Luhansk, but even dropped bombs and missiles on the capital city of Kiev.
Does Putin really believe Ukraine is a Nazi country? Come on.
