Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy could populate eastern Ukrainian land with Jews, Russian President Vladimir Putins adviser Sergei Glazyev said in an opinion piece published Monday.
Glazyevs blog post on an obscure nationalist website appeared on the day that Zelenskiy, who is himself Jewish, met with top Ukrainian Orthodox Jewish Hasidic rabbis. Kremlin officials and Russian state-funded media have characterized Ukraine's pro-Western leadership that swept into power in 2014 as Nazis bent on oppressing Russian speakers.
I dont rule out, for example, the possibility of a mass movement into southeast Ukrainian land cleansed of the Russian population by the inhabitants of the Promised Land tired of permanent war in the Middle East, Glazyev wrote.
Putins recent orders that expedite the process for residents of southeastern Ukraine and other categories of Ukrainians to obtain Russian passports, Glazyev said, could be quite timely for Russian speakers in the war-torn Donbass region.
The Kremlin on Tuesday distanced itself from Glazyevs comments, with spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying the opinion piece represented Glazyevs personal opinion, the state-run RIA Novosti news outlet reported. The Kremlin administration isnt discussing the issue in any way, Peskov added.
~Not with the history of pogroms in Russia and that whole area.
Sounds like the so-called Putin aide is the NAZi.
Asking a Jew to go to Eastern Europe would be like asking them to go to Iran
My Grandfather fled pogroms going on in the Ukraine. What’s changed?
Stalin basically allowed Hitler to waltz into the Ukraine where most of the Jews lived.
Maybe they could repopulate the Ukraine with, Ukrainians?
As with Naziism, communism has been rife with antisemitism and anti-Israel obsession all along.
What an absolutely typical, load of anti-semitic, Russian propaganda crap.
Hey all you Putin, pro Russian, anti Ukraine fan boys infesting FR; don’t forget to mention those evil boogie man “Ukrainian Nazis”.
I’m sure the new President of Ukraine will be sending them to the region as well (sarcasm off).
Could. I'm thinking the scale of Russian emigration to Israel argues against that, but what do I know. Plenty of Arabs available for the Ukraine, they've "relations" in Russia. Better choice if they need hard working immigrants, look to Central America.

They should be so lucky - best performing immigrant demographic on Earth.
“Pollster: Jews voted Clinton more than any other group”
Second. Blacks are the most heavily Democratic Party voting demographic. But yeah.
...but when it comes to socio-economic achievements - wealth creation, educational achievement, low crime rates, low dependency social services, etc., as immigrants Jews are literally, the best performing demographic. Not just on average, but with a pronounced concentration of exceptionally high end performers as well.
Which is different than the history of pogroms in the Middle East and Western Europe because...?
“Which is different than the history of pogroms in the Middle East and Western Europe because...?”
Not much. Europe was still going strong in WWII under Germany’s invasion.
A better reason not to internationally conspire for a Jewish homeland in the Russen-rein-ed Eastern Ukraine would be that it’s too freakin’ cold there in the winter. I grew up in Buffalo, and I don’t miss arctic weather one bit.
