Ukraine-Russia war LIVE – Evil Putin forced to apologise over Hitler slur as hero Zelensky hails ‘courageous’ Britain
VLADIMIR Putin has apologised after Russia’s foreign secretary claimed Hitler had “Jewish blood”, Israeli authorities have said.
Israel PM Naftali Bennett’s office said in a statement that he “accepted President Putin’s apology for [Sergei] Lavrov’s remarks”,
He also “thanked him for clarifying the president’s attitude towards the Jewish people and the memory of the Holocaust“.
However, the Kremlin has made no reference to an apology in its account of the phone call.
It’s also not immediately clear whether Mr Bennett had requested an apology or whether it was offered unprompted by Russia.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy hailed Britain and other world leaders’ courage in his latest address to besieged nation.
He said peace would have “already been restored” if all nations had followed in the same spirit as Boris Johnson.
In his daily overnight address, the heroic leader said: “If everyone in the world – or at least the vast majority – were steadfast and courageous leaders as Ukraine, as Britain, I am sure we would have already ended this war and restored peace throughout our liberated territory for all our people,”
