Russian President Vladimir Putin made chilling remarks on Wednesday, calling for the country to “cleanse itself”. Compare the West to Nazi Germany.
“The Russian people will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors and just spit them out like a fly that accidentally flew into their mouths,” Putin said in a transcript released in English by the Kremlin.
“I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, our cohesion and our willingness to respond to all challenges.”
Putin went on to say that Ukraine was behaving “like the Nazis” and claimed without any evidence that it was bombing its own people. He also said the West is trying to “cancel” Russia.
“The West tore off its mask of decency and began to act rudely and show its true colors,” said the despot.
“One cannot help but recall the anti-Semitic Nazi pogroms in Germany in the 1930s, and then pogroms committed by their henchmen in many European countries exposed to Nazi aggression against ours during the Great Patriotic War land,” he continued.
Putin has said his again and again invasion of Ukraine is a “denazification” mission and he liberates the people of the Donbass region whom he claims are victims of genocide.
The totalitarian leader continues to crack down on internal dissent, ensuring citizens who refuse to stand by the Kremlin line are jailed.
Meanwhile, Putin’s relentless attacks on Ukraine have only continued.
The bodies of a family of five – including three-year-old twins – were found in the rubble of a bombed hostel in Chernihiv on Thursday, local emergency services said, and at least 130 people were dragged from the building Debris of the blown up theater Shelter for more than 1,000 Ukrainians in the “apocalyptic” city of Mariupol.
