MADRID, May 9. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Ukrainian authorities have accused Russian forces of bombing a Jewish cemetery in the town of Glujov (northeast), an incident for which kyiv has once again equated troops loyal to Moscow with Nazism.
The Minister of Culture, Oleksandr Tkachenko, has shared images of the destroyed cemetery on social networks, where victims of the abuses perpetrated in 2018 would be buried. In his opinion, it is “further proof that they are not different from the fascists who exterminated the Jews 80 years ago.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine on February 24 and included among his justifications the need to “denazify” the neighboring country. However, as a result of the abuses perpetrated in these months, it has been the Ukrainian authorities who have accused the Russians of behaving like Nazis.
This Monday, the president of Ukraine, Voldimir Zelensky, has insisted that “sooner or later” they will defeat and expel the “Nazi hordes” that arrive from Moscow because, while the Russians fight “for the Führer”, the Ukrainians do it for “freedom” and so that the victory of their ancestors “is not in vain”.
