Yale's Eliyahu Stern on Antisemitism and the Ukraine War

Clip: 05/09/2022 | 18m 24s | Video has closed captioning.

Russia's claim to be de-Nazifying Ukraine took an uglier turn when the country's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said it didn't matter that Ukrainian President Zelensky is Jewish, because Hitler – he claimed – was part Jewish. It's a comment that – unsurprisingly - was widely condemned.
