Putin criticized for saying Jews, minorities may have meddled in United States vote

Open source

Throughout the interview, which was conducted on March 1 and 2 in Russia, Putin rejected the notion that the Kremlin was involved in the election process.

"Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked", he said. He seemed to also imply that Jews could not be Russian.

"I do not know, either."Putin then went on to accuse the United States of interfering in Russian elections" all the time" and reiterated that it was "impossible" for his country to do the same thing. Some groups compared the statement to anti-Jewish myths that helped inspire the Holocaust.

Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (Democrat-Connecticut) called on world leaders to denounce "soundly and promptly" what he called Putin's "repulsive" remarks.

On 1 March, Putin had said the Kinzhal missile - named after a type of dagger is "an ideal weapon". The results of the election were not impacted. "It is deeply disturbing to see the Russian president giving new life to classic anti-Semitic stereotypes that have plagued his country for hundreds of years, with a comment that sounds as if it was ripped from the pages of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion".

The American Jewish committee has said that Mr Putin should clarify the comments "at the earliest opportunity". Jews had few rights under the Russian czars, researcher Masha Gessen told NPR.

"First, we have principles whereby we do not allow others to interfere in our domestic affairs and do not get into the affairs of others...."
