Evelina Zakamskaya, an anchor at a Russian state-funded television channel, said that Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves.

A Russian TV presenter, in a conversation with a writer about the Ukrainian protests and Crimea, said that the Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves.

Writer Aleksandr Prokhanov, while being interviewed by anchor Evelina Zakamskaya on the state-funded Rossiya 24 TV channel, said (as translated by JNS.org) that it is “strange that Jewish organizations, the European and our own Russian organizations, support the Maidan [protests]. What are they doing? Do they not understand that they are bringing about a second Holocaust with their own hands? This is monstrous.”

Zakamskaya replied that the Jews “brought about the first [Holocaust] similarly.”

“It is a blindness. It is an unbelievable blindness, that is clearly repeating itself, because even then in 1933 in Europe, many liberal organizations were feeding the Fuhrer,” Prokhanov then said, a statement that Zakamskaya agreed with.

A video of the comments in Russian was first posted by a blogger on Americablog.com, who provided his own translation.

Earlier in March, Josef Zisels, chairman of the Association of Jewish Communities and Organizations of Ukraine (VAAD), and several other prominent Ukrainian Jews wrote a letter accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of exaggerating the level of ultra-nationalism and anti-Semitism in Ukraine.

A few anti-Semitic incidents have occurred throughout Ukraine since the beginning of the Maidan protests in November 2013, including the vandalism of a synagogue in the Crimean city of Simferopol and a Molotov cocktail attack on a Chabad center in Zaporozhye. But those incidents have not been directly linked to the Maidan protests.

  1. That is not true and I will tell you why,the was no time like now where Jews feel comfortable in Russia thanks to Putin,even if you go back 20 years it was worst..majority of Jews immigrated when brothers opened up but not currently most Jews who immigrated to US ,Israel or Germany were from Ukraine because they are mostly discriminated in Ukraine and Belarus

  2. I’m not anti-Christian just because I think they are savages, I’m not anti-Slavic because I believe they are European-Asiatic hordes, or anti-European since they are decadent animals, or anti-American because they worship the devil himself. Don’t take it personally.

  5. Indeed history keeps repeating itself and sadly no one learns from history.We must be and remain vigilent. We have too many principles but we need to always be ready to react and counter the ennemy for he is omnipresent

  6. You, Mr. Shapiro – are SO way off the mark – the “non-observant” Jews aggravate or irritate many gentiles – au contraire, it is the ultra Orthodox sect(s) that prove to be the thorn in gentiles’ collective sides. I cannot fathom where or how you concocted a statement based upon, well, pretty much less than nothing. And your statement that this bimbette is partially correct is beyond shameful – it’s downright disgusting – I think you need to spend some time in your salle du bain (bathroom), placing your cranium in the toilet bowl and flushing several times until the cobwebs are cleared away. Am being exceedingly polite at this juncture.

  8. Shirley Gruenhut , is it not YOUR GOD that brings blessings or WRATH? Through out history you have been a disobedient people, is this not TRUE? But GOD has delivered you out of your enemies hands and has fulfilled his WORD in prophecy MANY, MANY times? Or shall it be that YOUR GOD blesses you people with WRATH for being GOOD and obedient??? SO, as YOU put your head in the toilet and flush several times be sure to rinse your mouth! I too am being polite!
    Shall we go through the Old Testament and count TOGETHER your disobediences and deliverances?
    FOR surely you have a merciful and loving GOD, A mighty GOD to love such people!!!

  12. Quote: “… because even then in 1933 in Europe, many liberal organizations were feeding the Fuhrer,” Prokhanov then said” – Is he wrong? I don’t think so. Today, similarly, far too many Israelis and other Jews support BDS – perhaps they even initiated this danger to Israel and to Jews worldwide; too many Jews and Israelis lean over backward to “understand the other side” [despite the obvious lies and distortions of Arab propaganda] that they don’t understand the Jewish side any more.
