Putin compares the Ukrainian idea of indigenous peoples to the ideas of the Third Reich

09.06.2021, Moscow.

The adoption of the law on the division of the peoples of Ukraine into “indigenous” and “non-indigenous” is an unfortunate attempt by Kiev to develop the ideas of Nazi Germany, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a video interview of the Moscow. Kremlin. Putin program published on June 9 on the Russia 24 TV channel.

“In general, the very division into indigenous, first-rate categories of people, second-rate categories, and so on – it’s certainly quite reminiscent of the theory and practice of Nazi Germany,” Putin said.

The Russian President also asked rhetorical questions of whether this law is acceptable, in particular, with respect to the people of “mixed ancestry,” and whether such people will not fall into a category of people subjected to special checking and further sorting into categories. Raising these issues, the president showed concern, in particular, about the fate of incumbent Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.

“What’s next? Zelensky himself is Jewish by nationality. I don’t know, he may be of ‘mixed ancestry.’ What to do with these people? Are they going to measure their skulls and other parts of the body with compasses to define – how it was done earlier to distinguish a real Aryan from a fake one? Will they distinguish between a real Ukrainian and a fake one?” Putin explained.

Putin specified that altogether the law would prove to be a serious shock to the Russian people, its implementation in Ukraine could force millions of people to either leave Ukraine or change their nationality.

“Altogether, this is such a powerful, very serious blow to the Russian people, and, of course, we cannot be indifferent to this,” the president said.

The law on the indigenous peoples of Ukraine was published on May 20 on the website of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada.
