Chief Rabbi of Russia offered Lavrov to apologize for his words about Hitler

Berl Lazar said that he “has no right to give advice” to the head of the Foreign Ministry, but would like Lavrov to apologize for his words about the Jewish people and Hitler. The rabbi believes that “then the incident could be considered settled” alt=”Chief Rabbi of Russia offered Lavrov to apologize for his words about Hitler” />

Berl Lazar

Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar called the statements of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about Jews and leader of Nazi Germany Adolf Hitler shocking. He would like the minister to apologize for them, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

“I do not consider myself entitled to give advice to the head of Russian diplomacy, but it would be nice if he apologized to the Jews and simply admitted his mistake,” — quotes the rabbi's agency. According to Lazar, “then it would be possible to consider the incident settled.”

The rabbi also reacted to the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which the day before accused Israel of supporting the “neo-Nazi regime”; in Kyiv, where supposedly “anti-Semitism <…> bloomed in luxuriant colors. According to Lazar, “it is inappropriate to make any comparisons”; between the Holocaust and current events in Ukraine. The rabbi pointed to the role that Soviet troops played in the victory over Nazism, and noted that such a comparison “belittles the merits of these heroic soldiers who liberated Auschwitz and hoisted the banner of victory over the Reichstag.”

< p>Last week, Lavrov, in an interview with the Italian broadcaster Mediaset, suggested that Adolf Hitler may have Jewish roots, and said that “the most ardent anti-Semites are usually Jews.” Thus, the minister reacted to the question of why Ukraine needs “denazification” (the Russian authorities call it one of the goals of the military operation), if the country's President Vladimir Zelensky— Jew. According to Lavrov, this argument “means absolutely nothing.”

These statements caused indignation of the Israeli authorities. Prime Minister Naftali Bennet called them lies, the purpose of which — “to blame the Jews themselves for the most heinous crimes in history that have been committed against them, and thereby exonerate the enemies of Israel from responsibility.” He repeated his words from the April 28 Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony: “Even the worst wars today— not the Holocaust and incomparable with the Holocaust.

Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid considered Lavrovai's words unforgivable and said that the Jews “did not kill themselves during the Holocaust”, stressing that accusing the Jews of anti-Semitism— it is to exhibit “the lowest level of racism against the Jews.” He also demanded that the Russian government apologize to Israel and the Jewish people. The Russian ambassador was summoned to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

Lavrov's statements were also condemned by the leaders of other states. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called them “absurd and unacceptable.” Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi obscene, and US State Department spokesman Ned Price— “the lowest form of racism.”

Zelensky, in turn, called Lavrov's words an “anti-Semitic attack”, which indicate that “in Russia all the lessons of World War II have been forgotten, and maybe never did not learn these lessons».

Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova assessed the risk of conflict between Pridnestrovie and Ukraine

Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova Serebryan: Pridnestrovie and Ukraine are not interested in aggravation Moldova does not believe that a new conflict with the participation of Ukraine can flare up in Pridnestrovie, said Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova Oleg Serebrian. He also believes that Kyiv is not interested in aggravating the situation

Views of Chisinau

The Moldovan authorities do not consider the risk of Transnistria's involvement in the conflict with Ukraine high. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration of Moldova Oleg Serebrian on TV8 TV channel, NOI.md reports.

According to him, “no one denies that we live in a sensitive zone” and that military operations on the territory of Ukraine could potentially affect Moldova as well. “But there is no high degree of readiness for the possible involvement of this region in the conflict. On the left bank of the Dniester, neither among the population nor among the business environment, I felt any interest in escalating tensions. There is no risk that this conflict will be reborn in the near future, — Serebrian said.

According to him, the Moldovan authorities exchange information with the leadership of Transnistria. “During the negotiations with [the head of the unrecognized republic] Vadim Krasnoselsky, I did not feel belligerence, the desire to solve problems by force. We are convinced that Tiraspol is not interested in the worsening of the situation,— said the Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova.

Also, according to him, he does not think that Ukraine is capable of attacking Transnistria. In his opinion, Kyiv is not interested “in opening a new hot spot.”

On April 25, 26 and 27, four objects were attacked in Transnistria including the headquarters of the Ministry of State Security of the republic, as well as the antennas of the radio and television center, which relayed Russian radio.

The authorities of Transnistria stated that the unknown persons who fired at the main office of the Ministry of State Security illegally arrived from Ukrainian territory and then departed in the opposite direction. The unrecognized republic declared a red level of terrorist threat and took enhanced security measures, also canceling the military parade by May 9.

The Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic declared its independence from Moldova in 1990. Russia sent peacekeepers to the region in July 1992 after the conflict escalated, and a task force of Russian troops is now based there. In June 2018, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from Pridnestrovie.

The Russian Foreign Ministry called this UN decision provocative, and the PMR refused to withdraw the Russian military from the republic. Moldovan President Maia Sandu said that in order to resolve the conflict, Russian peacekeepers should be replaced by a mission of civilian observers from the OSCE.

Moldova put forward its own version of what happened. On April 26, Moldovan President Maia Sandu held a meeting of the republic's Security Council, following which she said that there are frictions in Pridnestrovie between various forces within the republic that “advocate war.” The third version of what happened was outlined by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. According to him, the situation in the PMR “is trying to destabilize” Russia. “We clearly understand that this is one of the steps of the Russian Federation. It's the special services that work there, — he said. “They show them that if Moldova supports Ukraine, there will be certain steps,” — considers Zelensky.

Transnistria borders on Ukraine, where the Russian military operation is taking place. In mid-April, Moscow announced a new phase of the operation, the purpose of which was the establishment of control over the Donbass and southern Ukraine in order to provide a corridor to Transnistria.

Lithuania proposed sanctions against Patriarch Kirill to the European Union at the end of April. Vilnius considered that he supported the military operation in Ukraine. “This man [Kirill], in my opinion, is not engaged in pastoral care, but destroys souls, if you try to find some kind of spiritual term to describe his statements,” — explained the head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, Gabrielius Landsbergis.

On May 3, Patriarch Kirill said during a sermon in the Archangel Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin that Russia “never attacked anyone”, but only “defended its borders.” “We don’t want to fight anyone. Russia has never attacked anyone. It is amazing that a great and powerful country has never attacked anyone— she only defended her borders, — he said.

The patriarch also expressed the hope that the Lord would keep “the Russian land from internecine strife and from the invasion of foreigners.”

In early April, Kirill stated in a pastoral word, that forces opposed to Russia are trying to tear the church away from the people, which keeps the world from the coming of the Antichrist.

Russia is not in danger of default: the country has paid on Eurobonds in dollars

May 4 was the deadline for payments.

Media reports that Eurobond holders receive payments from Russia. Earlier, the Russian side paid in dollars for Eurobonds maturing on April 4, 2022 and 2042.

The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation confirmed that it was able to pay in dollars the amount of 649.2 million dollars.

This allowed Russia to avoid a technical default, Bloomberg reports.

Currently, the main international clearing centers have received and processed Russia's Eurobond payments.

Three more investors have confirmed that the payments have been received by their depository banks, writes RBC.

The next payments are due on May 27 – Russia needs to repay Eurobonds for 2026 and 2036.

Recall that initially the Ministry of Finance tried to pay for Eurobonds for April 4, 2022 and 2042 in rubles, because the country's international foreign exchange reserves were frozen.

But the payment did not go through, and Russia was threatened with a technical default after the grace period expired. It ended one month after the payment date, i.e. May 4.

Later, the head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, categorically denied the information about a possible default in Russia. According to her, the RF Ministry of Finance has all the resources to redeem Eurobonds. It all depended on foreign banks.

As Topnews wrote earlier, analysts initially reported that Russia was not in danger of default – “because of US apostasy.” The fact is that the Russian side was allowed to transfer money in dollars.
