A television news anchor on a Russian  state-owned network accused the Jews of bringing the Holocaust on themselves.

In an item first reported by blogger John Aravosis of AMERICAblog, Russian television host Evelyn Zakamskaya is seen interviewing a guest about the recent crisis in Crimea.

When the issue which was discussed touched on Jewish support for the pro-Western Ukrainian government which seeks to minimize Russian influence in the country, Zakamskaya’s guest remarked how odd it was that these elements would invite a “second Holocaust.”

“They also advanced the first [Holocaust],” Zakamskaya told her guest.

The Kremlin has justified Russian annexation of Crimea by saying that “neo-Nazi” and “fascist” elements have taken over in Kiev.

Moscow’s actions have damaged relations with the West, which has imposed sanctions in response.
