Kremlin declines to say whether Putin apologised to Israel over Hitler remarks

The Kremlin refused to clarify whether President Vladimir Putin had apologized to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, following Russia’s foreign minister’s claim that Adolf Hitler was Jewish.

Israel lambasted Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for the comment, describing the remarks as an “unforgivable” falsehood that minimised the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust.

Bennett said on Thursday that Putin had apologised for the remark, and that he, Bennett, had accepted the apology.
