Israel has condemned Russia after its foreign minister suggested that Adolf Hitler was Jewish.Sergei Lavrov made the controversial comments after he was asked about Russian claims that it invaded Ukraine to “denazify” the country.Mr Lavrov said that Ukraine could still have Nazi elements even if some figures such as President Volodymyr Zelensky were Jewish.“So when they say ‘How can Nazification exist if we’re Jewish?’ In my opinion, Hitler also had Jewish origins, so it doesn’t mean absolutely anything.
