Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky likened Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to Hitler’s “final solution” as he attacked Israel’s “indifference” towards Kyiv in an address to the country’s MPs. 

Mr Zelensky, whose family lost relatives during the Holocaust, told the Knesset: “Listen to what the Kremlin is saying, they’re using the same terminology of the Nazi party. It’s a tragedy.”

“When they sought to destroy all of Europe, they didn’t want to leave any one of you… they called it the ‘final solution’ to the Jewish question,” he said in a video address.

“I’m sure you will never forget it. What are they saying now in Moscow? They are using the same words, the same terminology, ‘the final solution’ but now they direct it at us.”
