The Russian Federation now demonstrates total denial of humanism and historical truth as aggressively as possible.
“Russia demonstrates total denial of humanism and historical truth. It does so as aggressively as possible,” Mykhailo Podolyak, Adviser to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, told Ukrinform in a comment.
Podolyak noted that, in particular, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry publicly expressed an insulting maxim about Russia's right to kill Ukrainians, misrepresenting the memory of the Holocaust and idealizing Hitler's crimes in World War II.
“To put it bluntly, the more [Russian foreign minister] Lavrov speaks, the more the humanist world sees how the Russians distort not only current reality, but also the well-known historical context. There is a demonstrative rhetoric of classic Kremlin’s cynicism, unconditional manipulation and propagandistic lies,” the Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office stressed.
According to him, this is extremely dangerous rhetoric, which provokes even more skidding and instability in different regions.
“Let me emphasize the fundamental point of what is happening. It was Russia who deliberately violated international law and ripped apart the territorial integrity of another country. It was Russia who invaded Ukraine with an army. It is Russia who is waging an unconditional and demonstrative genocidal war on our territory, deliberately targeting our civilians. It is Russia who deliberately isolates itself from the rest of the democratic world by its own violent aggression and heinous war crimes in Ukraine. It is Russia who perfectly copies the pattern of behavior of the famous leader of the Nazi regime of the middle of the last century and his practices of ethnic genocide, concentration camps, forced deportation,” Podolyak underscored.
Earlier, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said that the EU and the USA "intend to solve the 'Russian question' just as Hitler wanted a 'final solution' to the Jewish question."
Prior to this, Lavrov said that the plan for a peaceful settlement of Russia's war against Ukraine, proposed by President Volodymyr Zelensky, "is out of the question."
