The president of Russia had harsh words for both Islamic terrorists and the Canadian prime minister.
Vladimir Putin called out the terrorist group Hamas in a recent statement at the CIS summit in the former soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan.
“Of course, [Israel] has the right to defend itself. It has the right to ensure its peaceful existence,” Putin stated at the summit, as was reported by Russian state news agency TASS.
Putin also had some harsh criticism of Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his henchman Anthony Rota for applauding an SS Nazi in Parliament, as was reported by TASS.
“It was stunning to see this horrible situation in the Canadian Parliament, where everyone stood up together and applauded a former Nazi, a soldier of the SS Galicia Division. It was simply disgusting.
Don’t they know that the Nazis fought against the Russians? That Hitler fought against the Russians? I mean, they surely know that. Then they couldn’t help but know that once he was fighting against the Russians, he was fighting against the Canadians as well.
Theoretically it is possible to imagine that he also killed some Canadians, because Canada was a member of the anti-Hitler coalition, as you know.”
Fact-checkers from Reuters pointed out that Putin’s criticism was less targeted at Trudeau, and more towards former House Speaker Anthony Rota.
Thanks to pressure from conservative commentators, and a petition from the Canadian Democracy Coalition, Rota resigned in shame after the scandal.
Putin is under sanctions from Canada and other western countries after it invaded its neighbour Ukraine. While Canadian conservatives are generally not supportive of Putin, they have criticized Trudeau for using Canadian tax dollars to support Ukraine.
