Hillary: Russia Acting Like Nazis

In her first public remarks on the crisis in Ukraine, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told attendees at a fundraiser for the Boys and Grils Club that Russia’s actions have been similar to population transfers by the Nazis in the run-up to World War II, and that Vladimir Putin's claims of protecting Russians were similar to Hitler’s claims of protecting Germans in Czechoslovakia and Romania. Meanwhile, Putin launched a broadside against the U.S. on Tuesday, declaring at a press conference, “It’s necessary to recall the actions of the United States in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Libya, where they acted either without any sanction from the U.N. Security Council or distorted the content of these resolutions… Our partners, especially the United States, always formulate their geopolitical and state interests, and then drag the rest of the world with them, guided by the well-known phrase ‘If you’re not with us, you’re against us.’”
