Hillary Clinton compares Putin actions to Hitler's

Published: 03.05.14, 20:57 / Israel News

LONG BEACH, California - Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has likened Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions on the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.


The Press-Telegram of Long Beach, California, says Clinton made the comments Tuesday during a fundraising luncheon for local Boys and Girls Clubs.


Putin contends ethnic Russians in Ukraine need to be protected. Clinton said that's what Hitler did when he contended that ethnic Germans outside Germany in places such as Czechoslovakia and Romania were not being treated right and needed to be protected.


The newspaper quoted Clinton as saying that Putin is a man "who believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness." (AP)
