Ukraine’s government is "openly neo-Nazi” and "pro-Nazi,” controlled by "little Nazis,” President Vladimir Putin of Russia says.

U.S. officials led by President Joe Biden are responsible for the "nazification” of Ukraine, one of Russia’s top lawmakers says, and should be tried before a court. In fact, another lawmaker says, it is time to create a "modern analogy to the Nuremberg tribunal” as Russia prepares to "denazify” Ukraine.

In case the message was not clear, the Kremlin’s marquee weekly news show aired black-and-white footage Sunday of German Nazis being hanged on what is now central Kyiv’s Independence Square. The men drop, dangling from a long beam, and the crowd cheers.
