Pro-Kremlin Lawmaker: Jews Destroyed Russia

By: JTA

A local politician from the party of Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused Jews of destroying Russia.

The accusation by Oleg Bolychev, a legislator from the ruling United Russia party at the regional parliament in Kaliningrad, was made in the parliament on Feb. 6, according to the Regnum news agency, which reported on it on Thursday.

During a debate, Bolychev called his detractors “Jews, mired in opposition,” adding: “You destroyed our country in 1917 and you destroyed our country in 1991.”

The Russian Jewish Congress condemned the lawmaker, saying it was indignant over the statement and calling on authorities to investigate it.

Bolychev also came under fire from colleagues within the ruling party, some of whom called for him to be expelled.

“It is incredible that a public figure can make such extremist statements,” lawmaker Alexander Khinshtein told the AFP news agency.

Bolychev has rejected accusations that his remarks were anti-Semitic and decried claims of extremism as “ravings and provocations”
.
“I was not talking about Jews but about the situation in the country. I was speaking about traitors who destroyed a great state twice,” he said.

  7. Why Jews are still living in Russia? It's not a surprise for me. All over Europa even in France where I leave it's the same thing . I am Jew I feel shame after only 60 years ago.

  9. Comments such as these are becoming more frequent and more bold. It is frightening and cause for alarm, even here in the States.

  10. hmm. my buby spat on russia before she said off to america in the 19th century. i hope that contributed to their destruction. filthy drunken jew haters still crazy after all these years.

  11. This "law-maker" doesn't speak well about current Russia. He is just following the tide of anti-Semitism. But, should we really be surprised?

  12. Lani Lowell says:

    Guessing he meant Stalin ? they miss the 400 yr old dictatorship, er monarchy.most of the Jews that lawmaker could have actually known in his lifetime have already left the country! and are doing great in Israel and USA, and Canada too. But of course, Russia had nothing to do with its own demise

  13. He blames Jews for the rise of the soviets in 1917 and the fall of the soviets in 1991? If the soviet union was so great, shouldn't he praise Jewish people for making it happen then? Forget the false premise he's making and look at how even in his own limited logic, he's full of conflict. He's more full of something else though.

  14. Im so happy I left this stinking sht hole 25 years ago!

  15. Kola Finger says:

    It clearly seems that more and more Russians of today long for return of Hitler and is what exactly Adolf has done lately and all the times since Russians visit in Berlin.., soon without need of Nazi-marching armies will get there and freed all the Stalin loving Russians still complaining over their Russian primitivism…

  16. no surprise-always blame Jews

  17. Anti semitism is nothing new in Russia ! It existed long before Bolshevik Revolution and it will continue to thrive ! After all , the corrupt politicians in Russia need to have a escape goat for their failures !! I guess , they blame the exodus of some 25 million Russian to other lands also on Jews !!
