Israelis are fighting in Ukraine .. Russia clarifies and raises controversy again

The Russian Foreign Ministry announced, on Wednesday, that "Israeli mercenaries" are fighting in Ukraine alongside the Azov Brigade, which Moscow describes as "Nazi", a day after statements referring to Adolf Hitler's Jewish origin, which sparked a sharp controversy.


Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told "Sputnik" radio: "I will say something that Israeli politicians probably do not want to hear, but it may help them. In Ukraine, Israeli mercenaries stand side by side with Azov fighters."


The Ukrainian Azov Brigade was established in 2014 by far-right activists before it was integrated into the regular forces, and it proved to be one of the fiercest opponents of the Russian forces that launched a military attack on Ukraine since last February 24.
