The Russian Foreign Ministry’s chief spokesperson launched a bitter verbal attack against Israel on Tuesday, invoking the Holocaust in a protest against Israel’s decision to supply Ukraine with equipment to assist against a potential nuclear accident.

“If only the ancestors of the current Israeli elites knew that their direct descendants were sponsoring a regime that glorifies their murderers and the ideology of the Holocaust,” Maria Zakharova — the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson — declared in a post on the Telegram social media channel.

Zakharova’s ire was reportedly triggered by Israel Atomic Energy Commission Director General Moshe Edri’s statement to the recent General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN’s nuclear watchdog.
