In order to rid Ukraine of Nazis, Vladimir Putin was ready to unleash a war. So the official version of the Kremlin. But in his own circle and in the Russian Duma, Putin has nothing against Nazis. On the contrary.
“Neo-Nazis have seized power in Ukraine.”
“Once again I appeal to the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Do not let neo-Nazis and Banderovtsy use your children, your wives and the elderly as human shields. Take power into your own hands. It seems that we would have an easier time coming to terms with you than with this gang of drug addicts and neo-Nazis who have settled in Kyiv and taken the entire Ukrainian people hostage.”
