Evelina Zakamskaya, an anchor at a Russian state-funded television channel, said that Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves. Photo: YouTube screenshot. A Russian TV presenter, in a conversation with a writer about the Ukrainian protests and Crimea, said that the Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves.

Writer Aleksandr Prokhanov, while being interviewed by anchor Evelina Zakamskaya on the state-funded Rossiya 24 TV channel, said (as translated by that it is “strange that Jewish organizations, the European and our own Russian organizations, support the Maidan [protests]. What are they doing? Do they not understand that they are bringing about a second Holocaust with their own hands? This is monstrous.”

Zakamskaya replied that the Jews “brought about the first [Holocaust] similarly.”

“It is a blindness. It is an unbelievable blindness, that is clearly repeating itself, because even then in 1933 in Europe, many liberal organizations were feeding the Fuhrer,” Prokhanov then said, a statement that Zakamskaya agreed with.

A video of the comments in Russian was first posted by a blogger on, who provided his own translation.

Earlier in March, Josef Zisels, chairman of the Association of Jewish Communities and Organizations of Ukraine (VAAD), and several other prominent Ukrainian Jews wrote a letter accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of exaggerating the level of ultra-nationalism and anti-Semitism in Ukraine.

A few anti-Semitic incidents have occurred throughout Ukraine since the beginning of the Maidan protests in November 2013, including the vandalism of a synagogue in the Crimean city of Simferopol and a Molotov cocktail attack on a Chabad center in Zaporozhye. But those incidents have not been directly linked to the Maidan protests.

    JNS org., before you hurl at us the by now reflexive qualifier of anything and everything coming from the not US- endorsed world as “offensive” and anti-Semitic, just think for a moment, think hard, very very very hard. For if you won’t be able to shed the – for many reasonably intelligent individuals inexplicable – intoxication of some Jewish circles by US defined pseudo-reality, then I am afraid you have to prepare yourselves for the worst to come.

    • zeynap, I didnt understand a word you wrote.
      They are
      psuedo intelligent or was it reality.

      OH WELL , back to my spiderman comic.

        Fine, you might very well be right as to the unintelligibility of the comment… o.k. you ARE right… But I am not in any way intoxicated, just plain angry and that can get me off-balance at times. I guess I was trying to diagnose, criticize and suggest all at once which can’t really work.

        But just this let me ask you Dacon, as I am really puzzled about this: Is there any, even one single American-Jew that you know of, who does not equate pro-Israel with pro-US without being labelled as a self-hating Jew by his/her brethren?

    I cannot get too excited by these news, especially when
    Netanyahu’s visit to Washington followed a meeting between Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, Reuven Din El, and Ukraines NEO-NAZI Right Sector head Yarosh.

    The embassy gave this fascist its stamp of approval, stating on its web site: “Dmytro Yarosh stressed
    that Right Sector will oppose all [racist] phenomena, especially anti-Semitism, with
    all legitimate means.
